Appealing a suspension from a commissioner angry enough to kick a coach out of the league for a year might not seem like the smartest decision, but in Sean Payton's case, it was the right decision.
Coach Payton 3hrs of surgery to repair fractured tibia and miniscus tear, Dr. Deryk Jones said it went very well 3 to 6 months recovery
The Saints have won more games in the last 5 years than any other team in the NFC.
Sean Payton was on my flight yesterday. He said his kids will attend Liberty Christian. His family is moving to Westlake.
We’re currently looking. It’s not something that we’ve decided that we’re going to wait on but the question is can we find the right player and do we have to wait if we can’t. We’re looking right now so I wouldn’t say we’re staying pat, we just haven’t signed anyone in the last two days. Hopefully we’re able to get someone in here that we have a high enough grade on...Right now, to be fair to those two players, they have a lot of work ahead of them. Both of them have shown some real positive signs, which is encouraging. Fortunately, they’re going to have three more games to get a lot of reps and we’ll see how they progress. But I do like what I’m seeing from them. That being said, there’s still a number of things that they’re working on to get fully up to speed. We’ll see, but I’d anticipate that we’ll be able to get someone in here before the Texans game.
Very happy for my coach, Sean Payton. His book "Hometeam" is #8 on the NY Times bestseller list in the first week
Sharper on Tweet war with Shiancoe: "I'm done with that. I'm gonna be like Jay-Z said: 'Be like LeBron, be too big to respond.'"...Sharper said Sean Payton did talk to him about it: "He had a few words for me. He asked me to tone it down."
"It’s good that we caught it now,’’ Payton said. "It began bothering him again and became aggravated the more he started running on it. So we just felt let’s go ahead and get it fixed now.
"It’s going to set him back. Our goal is to get him back in time for the start of training camp (July 29), the first week or so.’’
Sean Payton might be in big trouble. Mickey Loomis could be in even more of it.
