San Fran reporter huh?

I think we should step up the tribute another notch or seven, just to piss them off.

The fact that there is more than one story out there about an empty chair is simply ludicrous

These gestures sound lovely, but as tributes to Payton's value, they can't beat the impact of a 7-9 season in his absence.
