New Orleans Saints crossed the line in word, not deed, interim head coach Joe Vitt says

Full Story Ė Nola.Com

New Orleans Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt admitted regret for his role in the bounty scandal that has rocked the Saints this off-season, but he insisted that it was only the words spoken in meetings that crossed the line -- not the players' actions on the field. Vitt also spoke passionately Tuesday about the team's resilience during his first news conference since being named the replacement for suspended Coach Sean Payton last week.

"Understand one thing: We ain't down. We are not down," Vitt said, showing off the fiery personality for which he has been known throughout his 34 years as an NFL assistant. It's easy to see why Vitt was named as Payton's replacement, despite the awkward situation it will present when Vitt begins serving his own six-game suspension in September.

Vitt commands the attention of the room -- whether it's a team meeting or a news conference. Even while being his usual gruff self Tuesday, he mixed in some humility, some sincere emotion and even some humor.
