The New Orleans Saints' 38-17 victory against Miami marked the 100th game of Sean Payton's head-coaching career.
It's a significant benchmark. Of the Saints' other nine full-time head coaches, only Jim Mora (93-78) lasted long enough to hit the century threshold.
Payton's record is 66-34, a percentage that ranks squarely among the game's all-time greats at the same juncture. (Note: Last season didn't count against his won-lost ledger in official NFL records.) Of the 16 head coaches who've been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the modern era, Payton's .666 winning percentage ranks ahead of such luminaries as his mentor Bill Parcells, the Steelers' Chuck Noll, 49ers' Bill Walsh and Cowboys' Tom Landry at the same juncture in their careers.
In fact, his winning percentage is the best of the current head coaches who have won a Super Bowl and coached at least 100 games, which puts him ahead of the Patriots' Bill Belichick, Redskins' Mike Shanahan, Giants' Tom Coughlin and Packers' Mike McCarthy.
Moreover, Payton's teams have scored more points (2,804) and gained more yards (40,158) than any other team in a coach's first 100 games in NFL history.
