Sean Payton says his play calling needs improvement after opener
 
On Friday night, Saints head coach Sean Payton participated in an NFL game for the first time in close to 20 months.

He believes his performance left something to be desired.

“There are a lot of new faces and certainly as a play-caller and getting the call in on offense, I wasn’t very good,” Payton said after the game, per Glenn Guilbeau of USA Today.

On multiple occasions in their preseason-opening win vs. Kansas City, the Saints used timeouts on offense, burning two in the same second-quarter drive.

The NFL suspended Payton was for the 2012 season in connection with New Orleans’ bounty scandal.

Widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top offensive minds and play-callers, Payton has three more games to get back up to speed — something that seems likely to happen, given the Saints’ success with him in control of the offense.

Anyone would have a little rust to work off coach or player.

It's good to have a commander-in-chief who can be critical of himself and face facts rather than coaches who were baby sitting a team for a season. Glad to have our professional coach back! Makes me believe we always have a chance when he's in command.

Was he calling the plays on special teams too?

Nope, no one called those.

We ran out to the Buick and waited for it.

Calling plays in preseason... Please. Does anybody else call BS?

What he really is saying is that everybody will be held accountable this year.
