METAIRIE, La. Ė For the first time in his career with the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Drew Brees walked into the teamís Metairie headquarters and didnít see Sean Payton.

But Brees is confident of one thing, even if the suspended coach isnít physically around: Paytonís voice will be in the back of the quarterbackís head throughout this 2012 campaign.

ďI know itís coming before it comes to the point where now, his voice is going to be in my head whether itís actually coming out of his mouth or now,Ē Brees said. ďHeís present even though heís not present.Ē

Payton is suspended for the 2012 season, part of the penalties NFL commissioner Roger Goodell handed down this spring for what the league alleges was a bounty program. The coach was suspended for not stopping the pay for pain program.

Nevertheless, the way Payton has recruited players and coaches since starting the 2006 season with the club has set the franchise up for long-term success, players and coaches agreed Tuesday.

His presence will definitely be missed.
His cool demeanor and never panic attitude was contageous.
His Johnny-on-the-spot solutions will be hard to replicate.
I hope someone can step up and keep things positive and up-beat even when things don't go right.

Coaches win with teams that their previous coaches have left behind. Gruden won with Dungees team in Tampa, and its been done before. Even if this is just temporary it can be done.

Correct.. an added plus is that all of these coaches except for Spags have spent the last years in the same system..
