Players anticipate 'culture shock' as they return to Sean Payton-led New Orleans Saints on Monday
 
1 Attachment(s)
New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton may pursue a full-blown advertising campaign to let everyone and anyone understand how his return to the Saints won't be the magic elixir to 2012's upset stomach.

His internal campaign begins Monday as he will hold his first full-team meeting since being barred from the team for about nine months thanks to his suspension in connection to the bounty scandal as Monday marks the start of the team's offseason workout program.

It's also the day Payton presses the rewind button for the players as he will treat this offseason as if it was his first in New Orleans in 2006. Veteran wide receiver Lance Moore experienced Camp Payton during Payton's first offseason when Moore was a practice squad holdover from Jim Haslett's tenure.

Moore used the words "focused" and "extremely intense" when describing what he anticipates Payton's demeanor will be as the players return to the practice facility.

Defensive end Cam Jordan wasn't around for the beginning stages of Payton's tenure several years ago. What type of Payton does he expect?

"Honestly, I have no idea what to expect," Jordan said. "That's something I'll have to talk to Lance or Will (Smith) about since they definitely saw how Payton came in and how much he changed things. I know what flew last year is not going to fly this year. Honestly, that's the way I want to hear it."

I do not see culture shock. Its like when the teacher comes back after having had a sub for a week. There will be a certain level of security and calm that will come with Payton returning.

I hope he walks into the first meeting and quietly asks for players to raise their hands if they "Did their job!"

No one in their right mind would raise their hand if that question happened to be asked.

If anyone would raise their hand to that question would be showed how exactly he didn't do his job.
SP will bring back a level of consistency that was lacking last year and hopefully a bunch of A$$ kicking.

Yes, that needs reposting.

I am not expecting Saints with Sean P. to go 16-0 or something, BUT I assume there will be culture shock as in it will be time for the team to show up for work.

Which begs the question.

"What did fly last year? Hummmmm"?
