Re: Both hired same year, Saints' Sean Payton 'hated' to hear Mike McCarthy fired by Packers

BY ROD WALKER | rwalker@theadvocate.com Dec 5, 2018 - 9:56 am

Ten different NFL teams hired new head coaches going into the 2006 season.

After the Green Bay Packers fired Mike McCarthy on Monday, Sean Payton is now the only remaining coach from that class.

"I hated to hear the news of Mike," Payton said Wednesday morning. "He's a close friend, a fantastic coach. Don't get me started on that subject. I hate it. I hate to see how it happened. That's the business. As a head coach, the first thing you realize - - winning, losing - it's a business, just like it is for the players."

Payton is in his 13th season with the Saints. Only two other coaches have been with their team longer.

New England's Bill Belichick has coached the Patriots since 2000, while Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis took over the Bengals in 2003.

Payton says evolving as a coach has been a big part of why he's been able to stay around.

"I think you do have to constantly pay attention to how we're teaching," Payton said. "I've said that before. We're teachers by nature and how are we getting across and communicating. The subject matter is what we're doing defensively or offensively or in the kicking game and how does that fit your personnel and all of those things. But disappointed in that news with Mike. What else do you say?"

Might be a good thing, puts a little warmth under Payton to remind him that Competition Street applies to him as well...

Wow, no kidding. So this happened - Was on the phone with a vendor out of the ATL area code and just playfully asked what they thought of the Falcons' performance this season...

Mister, I can see where you're from and I'd appreciate it if you'd leave football out of our transactions...

So I'd thought I'd try the hair of the dog and I interjected even some more levity and asked so I take it if the Saints made the Superbowl...

She cut me off and said I'm trying real hard to be professional here...

Wow, but I don't forget either as I remember her big jelly-bell rolle laugh years ago after a Falcons win over the Saints...

I've made a note to call back with a restock order in February...

Better yet, email her a copy of a restock order ...from a different vendor with a friendly note that she's need to get that giant chip off her shoulder because "people who throw stones...."

You have to have a fear of something to hate it. This is why love the Falcons... What fear?

I love when the Saints beat them.
I love to see them get beat.
I love see their fans pissed off.
I love when...

Oh yea... and I won't miss Mike McCarthy.

He helped turn Aaron Rogers into a great QB and also made Aaron Brooks look like a viable QB.
He will become a head coach or offense coordinator somewhere. I just hope it isn't in the NFC South.
I would hate that.

Send him to Cleveland. I'd love that.

In reality he could very well wind up in the South...
