Brees says Saints love Payton; QB wants to be a Saint for life

Really Drew you want to be a Saint for life? THEN SIGN THE DANG CONTRACT

I've always liked Dick Vermeil

Except maybe when he was kicking our ass.

Saints would benefit greatly from season with Bill Parcells

"In this role with New Orleans, Parcells would further the education of all the Saints coaches. He'd teach them how to think like a head coach, how to act like a head coach and most of all, how to be a head coach. This is the best thing that could happen to rising Saints assistants Pete Carmichael or Aaron Kromer. This experience would make them both better coaches." - By Michael Lombardi, NFL Network

"I don't know who knew what and what they knew and when they knew it," Ditka said. "I think that's...

"I don't know who knew what and what they knew and when they knew it," Ditka said. "I think that's the problem. We don't know that. I think the commissioner got pissed off because (Payton) wasn't straight-forward with him, that's all."

Insight: In bounty seasons, Saints among NFL's most violent

"The Saints were second in the NFL with 17 regular-season defensive flags for violating rules intended to protect players from being hurt, just behind the Oakland Raiders' 18. The league averaged nine per team."

Minor rule tweaks could play major role

Point of emphasis for officials: "Here is the statement straight from the NFL’s competition committee report: "Prior to a snap, any quick, abrupt movement by an offensive player, or several offensive players in unison, which simulates the start of a snap, is a foul. These acts include (a) a quarterback in shotgun formation thrusting his hands forward in an exaggerated manner when there is not a simultaneous snap, (b) abrupt movement of the ball by the center, (c) abrupt movement by the center's head or other body part, and (d) a quick abrupt shift by two or more players in unison.""

Agent says New Orleans Saints assistant Joe Vitt will appeal his six-game suspension

"The agent for the Saints' Joe Vitt says his client has decided to appeal his NFL suspension for his role in New Orleans' bounty system. David Cornwell said in an email to The Associated Press on Friday he and Vitt had talked about the appeal. ProFootballTalk.com first reported Vitt's decision."

Sean Payton will appeal his suspension today, according to a league source. The coach is also expected to seek guidance on amount of time he will have to prepare his appeal, and attempt to obtain the full reports from NFL Security regarding the bounty evidence against him. Payton had until April 2 to appeal. Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear in remarks to the media the appeals process will be expedited and sources said its unlikely to last more than a week or so.
