T-P: What has this time away been like for you, especially now that the season is under way? Tougher than expected? Easier?

PAYTON: "I think probably a lot of what I expected. I have a chance now from afar to really study the game. Of course, I'm following the Saints real closely with the TV copy and the coaches tape and all those other things. But there are still days where obviously you miss it, because this is what you've done for so long. But really overall, looking from afar, the preseason seems to have gone well.

T-P: Do you watch a lot of football, or just the Saints?

PAYTON: "There's so many avenues now between all the different networks. I really try to stay on top of the news and transactions, especially paying close attention to our team.

He has said a lot about seeing things in a new way from our perspective (as outsiders/fans.) I wonder how much of that is him turning a negative to a positive, and how much may actually improve his coaching abilities come next year.

I just advise him to turn the sound down. He will go crazy listening to the jacklegs that usually call the games on TV.
