Saints hope bye week success continues
METAIRIE, La. – Coaches love control.
They love knowing what their players are doing at all times.
So when Saints coach Sean Payton made a change prior to the 2009 bye week, giving his players time off away from his watchful eye and the facility, he was taking a leap of faith that everything would be alright.
After all, it couldn’t have gotten much worse – the Saints were 1-3 coming off bye weeks in his first three seasons.
His players proved his worries wrong.
New Orleans hasn’t lost following a bye week since, winning by an average of 20 points.
“Compared to other teams, we do have a little bit more time off to refresh and recharge our batteries,” Saints special teams captain Courtney Roby said. “But when we come back, it’s full steam ahead.”
