Payton wants more from fans

HA!! Love this. Payton not only asking more from players but also from fans.

Smart move with our toughest schedule ahead and AT HOME

Saints fans make impact, but Sean Payton demands more - ESPN

Payton was surprisingly dismissive when asked for his reaction to the crowd noise inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after the Saints’ 44-23 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.


“I thought it was good. I’ll be honest with you, I think it’s been a lot better,” Payton said. “And we’ll continue to work on challenging them and getting them fired up. But I thought it was decent.”

????
GB burned 3 TO's and had a few penalties as well.

Maybe he is talking about all of the non-cheering after those non-sacks

I'm equally dismissive about his coaching this year.

Re: Payton wants more from fans

I rarely post anything.

If you want to sit on your rear-end at the Dome, then stay home. Give your tickets to someone who will scream their head off and affect the game.

As to coaching and playing professional football, we think we know what we are talking about because we watch NFL Live or some other non-sense on tv.

The truth is, 99.9999999999999999999% of us have absolutely no idea what we are talking about.

We still have a chance this year so GET LOUD!

And where are the Payton defenders at when he has something negative to say about the fans? Just what I was saying not too long ago. Oh, heaven forbid anyone question him though. The fans sounded the same as they always do. The dome was louder than most fans even in the lean years.

This is a typical commentary. And who did you see sitting on their butts?

As for the cliche' of "we don't know what we're talking about": There are some dumb fans out there, but there are a lot more of us that no more than we're given any credit for. Do we know everything? No, because we aren't members of the organization. You can be a professional athlete or coach, and you still won't know what's going on with any other team but yours, as far as game plan and what sort of financial plans a team might have. We can't know those things.

But the game, itself, is not hard to understand. There are certain self evident truths that can't be denied. When you see something being done over and over again, and it isn't working, it's fair to say as a fan that it isn't working, and perhaps it's time to change some things. When fans are complaining, it's usually about pretty simple stuff. You don't need to know the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes to be able to observe the game of football and identify a problem. But we get treated like a bunch of dumb jocks from the coaches perspective. These guys give THEMSELVES way too much credit.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

He did say it was 'good' and maybe in such a way so as not to give fans the impression they should rest on their laurels ... it's motivational psychology on a grander scale, ... I am kinda' watching him though,

Who knows. I do kind of get the impression he's trying to motivate fans in some way, but if that is indeed what he's trying to do, it seems silly. Fans are motivated by how the team plays. If we had the privilege to play on the field, then we would be self motivated. As a fan, you support the team no matter what, but how loud you get is 100% controlled by the teams performance. It's just like food... If the product taste's bad, why would you pretend it doesn't? That's why I've always thought coaches should keep their mouths shut about what fans do unless they do something egregious. Like when they start throwing things on the field like idiots.

This week they played well though, and I thought the crowd reflected that. I'm perplexed by Payton's remarks.
