Saints' Super Bowl onside kick came with belief from Sean Payton: Carl Nicks

I've always wondered how things would have been if the Saints had paid Nicks instead of Brees.

He said how coach Sean Payton promised through the week the play would work.

"He said it during the practice week, and we all kind of looked at him and he was super confident," Nicks said. "He had a little swagger to him about it and we're like 'OK, this is going to work.'"

Nicks said when Payton said at halftime they were going to call for it, it fired the team up because they knew they were going to get the ball. The Saints trailed 10-6 at the time, and a touchdown scored after the onside kick recovery put them ahead for the first time in the 31-17 victory.
