How will the game plan be administered with Sean in the recovery process today and tomorrow?

“The game plan will go as normal. Right now our players are in meetings reviewing yesterday’s game, making corrections. We are in special teams now. We will go to breakdowns. At 4 p.m., we have a pro personnel meeting on both sides of the ball. At 5 p.m. we will re-convene as a staff and look at the opponent in its totality and we will move on. We will be game planning tonight and all day tomorrow. It is what it is.”

Does this process become easier with a veteran football team that for the most part has been together for a while?

“There’s no question. When you have the type of people we have…The core of our football team has won a World Championship. They’ve been through a lot whether it’s displacement for a hurricane, preparing for a game in London or preparing for a Super Bowl. The foundation is here. The foundation is strong. These players aid in getting over any mini-crisis you might have because of their maturity, commitment and accountability for one another.”

Have you ever coached in a situation where the head coach is in the booth?

“Every football team, every game and every situation has different circumstances that take on a life of its own. When I did this in St. Louis, Mike Martz was on the telephone to the press box talking to Steve Fairchild. We’re going to work through all through mechanics. One of the things around here we take great pride in is our preparation. We’ll see what works for us. We have to see how Sean feels after the surgery. We need to see where he is in the next day or two. It’s going to be his call. This coaching staff has been together a long time. We need to work through these challenges for our football team to win a football game”

Have you talked to Sean today at all?

“I have not. We came in here at 5:30, 6:00, started breaking the film down and met with our players in a special teams meeting. I think that this morning he went into surgery and got out of surgery about ten minutes ago, so I have not talked to him today.”

Was there a certain point in the game where Drew Brees along with Pete Carmichael Jr. took more of a role in the game in terms of what plays were going to be called?

“The great situation with that is that when Sean went down he was working with a script of the first 15 plays and trying to call it from the bench, but Pete Carmichael and Drew have been together for so long…That history goes back to San Diego, so I think Drew knows Pete better than he knows himself and Pete knows Drew better than he knows himself. The play selection and what Drew likes and what Drew wants, those guys are on the same page. Pete Carmichael did a superb job yesterday of personnel groupings, getting the call out, making sure the call was right. Those two guys are tied at the hip. They were phenomenal”

This is our Linebacker Coach. The one in love with Scott Shanle.

Yeah, everything was "phenomenal", except the final score and the win-loss column after the game.

But thanks for sharing, papz!

Throw Shanle off the island, he is the weakest link.

I don't want to be negative about this, and I sincerely hope for the best. But I am really, REALLY concerned at this point. I think this team needs Sean on the sideline, and in their faces. His intensity, stubborn-ness, that in-your-face if you screw up mentality...None of that is going to be there with Sean in the booth.

For the first time in I don't know how long, our team is relatively injury free, but we lose our HC on a freak sideline accident. It sucks a$$$!!!!

i think S.P. in the booth with an unlimited supply of Juicy Fruit may be an unfair advantage for us

Someone on one of the sports talk shows said Vitt was intimidating and reminded 'em of his high school principal...

We broadcast in our office and tune to multiple shows/stations...

Did anyone catch that?

I thought it was funny...

Once coach went to the locker room it seemed that the team lost some confidence. Maybe I'm reading too much into it?

Coach Payton? Yeah, that'd be a tremendous blow to the psyche...

What no one talking about Drew missing a wide open Meachem. Still a lot of football to be played.

“The great situation with that is that when Sean went down he was working with a script of the first 15 plays and trying to call it from the bench, but Pete Carmichael and Drew have been together for so long…That history goes back to San Diego, so I think Drew knows Pete better than he knows himself and Pete knows Drew better than he knows himself.
