On his regret about the events that led to his suspension:

"When you're the head coach, you've got to pay attention to all areas of your football team. I'm going to leave it just at that. And I think right now the bigger picture is what's in front of us -- I say us, I mean our team, and not so much what's behind us. Certainly you learn from mistakes and certainly you learn from what's happened. There's a lot that went into this, and I think fortunately there's a lot more that's come out after the fact and I think will continue to surface."

Re: Sean Payton opens up about life away from Saints

On running the offense of his son's sixth-grade football team:
"We have 12 plays on the wristband. The terminology is the same as we used in New Orleans. The kids said, 'This looks hard.' But I said, 'I've seen your homework. That's a lot harder.' And they've done a great job with it."
A mysterious figure will be seen collecting those wristbands after each game.

Re: Sean Payton opens up about life away from Saints

On if he'd take it personal if the Saints go 15-1 and win a Super Bowl:

"No, I'm going to be on the edge of my chair rooting for them every game. This is our team. Not any individual. A group of people have worked very hard together to have success. We've always preached about eliminating the 'Is' and 'mes' and creating a team element to the sport. Coaches, offensive line, defensive line, the whole building. Everyone's got a part in it."


This speaks volumes about our coaches character. I know for sure I would be a little insecure if I was in his shoes.

Re: Sean Payton opens up about life away from Saints

I'm surprised that NFL.com allowed SP to publish his pep talk to the Saints so easily.

I'm a little surprised that there wasn't a part like:
"It's hard being away, not being able to make the calls, but I trust my staff and players to start Martez Wilson over Junior Galette because he's faster and he wants it more."

"And for Loomis to drop Shanle even if it means bringing in Jason David out of retirement and converting him to LB"

Whoa whoa whoa, I'm no Shanle apologist, but this one was uncalled for.

It's what the coach didn't say that spoke the most volume.

I liked the way he inadvertantly said the Kommisar was a liar.
