Saints News, 12/2/14: Payton Agrees With Fans That Saints Too Inconsistent

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: “I would agree, this year has been different for us than any season I can recall in a while,” Payton said of his 5-7 team. “Us ourselves, compared to the rest of the league, listen, we’ve been inconsistent. ... Man, that area, we all gotta continue to look at being a little more consistent as opposed to up and down. And really trying to bring out the best of what we can do every week, coaching and playing."
