SaintsWin: Payton Moments, Volume I
Full Story at saintswin.blogspot.com
After reading this article yesterday, I thought about how in the midst of the distortions and treachery of the 2012 offseason, I had paid scant attention to Sean Payton and pondered much less on what his absence might mean to the Saints' franchise.
While I'm not going to explore that topic right now, I am going to shine a light--and perhaps in future posts, as well--on moments that have defined Payton and burnished his legend.
Though Coach Payton won't be around this season, it's my opinion that it's important to keep him alive, if you will, in the public consciousness of Saints' fans as much as "telling stories" might allow.
I realize that might sound oddly sentimental or even unnecessarily morbid, but maintaining Payton's influence on the mindset of Saints' fans can, in some ways, provide both a sense of calm and an air confidence. Anyway, it can't hurt to pay a little tribute every now and then.
With that said, here's one of my favorite Sean Payton stories.
