Handwerger: Win and no one will worry about where Sean Payton's family lives | New Orleans News, Local News, Breaking News, Weather | wwltv.com | Eye on Black and Gold

Plan for career change critical: A letter to the editor | NOLA.com
It is tempting to criticize Coach Payton's decision to buy a residence in Dallas, but this should be tempered with consideration for his circumstances. Professional sports coaches, as the saying goes, are hired to be fired. That simply goes with the territory. The tenure of even the very accomplished coaches is relatively short, as careers go, and longer-term planning for...

Coach Sean Payton makes a lateral play: A letter to the editor | NOLA.com
When Sean Payton became the coach of the Saints he became one of us. Being one of us, he was totally embraced, taken into the family and community of Louisiana, no questions asked.

Top NFL Teams Going into 2011 - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com
New Orleans Saints - I whole heartedly believe that Gregg Williams pulled his name out of the head coaching carousel just to come back to the Saints and prove a point. Although the defense had solid rankings at the end of the season, this group was anything but solid. Saints fans shouldn't look for regulars Jeremy Shockey or Pierre Thomas to be back. With Chris Ivory and the rookie tight end Graham emerging, these two have become expendable. Reggie Bush will restructure and the team should load up on defensive talented to go with that potent offense. Brees will return to form.
