Re: Payton's Play Calling

It's unfortunate coach isn't committed to running the football. Specifically Latavius Murray.

In no particular order Sean needs to get a legit #2 WR, CB, G & LINEBACKER this off season. AJ Klein is just ok. We need above average backers when the playoffs start. A sideline to sideline assassin.

SP has the right weapon circulating Taysom around Brees, the Defense goes crazy when Hill is in the game. Problem is he didn't do enough of it on key plays

Payton has to be prepared to pay up with a high pick for this to work, hes got stuck thinking every UDFA is the next great thing and they arent
Like with Davenport selection? That kind of thinking is why we're where we are...

The more darts you have, the better your chances for a bullseye...

Can see moving up for a franchise quarterback with two ones; and, NO, that quarterback is not in this draft...

The move to select Gardner made sense because he had late first, early second draft grades on him by nearly every reputable scouting service, and many teams and was still there on Day 3...

But calling ambush nearly every single draft has caught up to this team...

They had no answer on that late drive to Taysom, NONE; then Payton pulled Taysom, Drew tried to do too much, and voilą, we gifted them the game...

Have no doubt we win that game if Payton doesn't call off the dogs with Taysom...

Re: Payton's Play Calling

The sweep play to Kamara on third and short had me absolutely livid. The two badly timed TO that we knew we were going to need in the fourth cost us that game.

It's sad that I've come to expect this sort of ending to our season every year. To further that sentiment that we need a 2nd receiver, it's been a problem for multiple seasons and it still hasn't been addressed. I don't know if it's a ego thing, but the fact that it's a known problem and we've done nothing to fix it is inexplicable. Someone needs to take accountability.

I also feel that it's time for Sean to relinquish is play calling duties and manage the team as a whole. It may damage his ego, but it needs to be done.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Payton's Play Calling

Credit Zimmer for staying committed to the run game. 40 attempts.

Saints ran 17 times all game. Recipe for an L. 5 carries for LM against his former team. Do you think he wouldn't have been motivated to run hard? You'd rather run gadget plays & laterals instead of feeding your 6'3 235 lb RB? 3rd and short .. u run a lateral ?

Coach seemed a bit unconcerned in that post game presser. He may want to look in the mirror.
