Sean Payton always has been drawn to football. Growing up in Naperville, Ill., playing Division I-AA football at Eastern Illinois University, living a nomadic life as a journeyman quarterback in several pro leagues, Payton may have been destined to be a coach.

The Saints struggled on defense the next two seasons, at which point Payton fired defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs. He brought in respected defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Williams’ influence has made an immediate impact in the Saints’ 4-0 start over the last five weeks.
Meanwhile, on offense, Payton, Brees and the rest of the Saints continued to put up points on the board. The Saints will face Eli Manning and the New York Giants on Sunday in the Louisiana Superdome.
“All these games are important,” Payton said, “and I think that’s important to understand. As you continue to play, and if you do continue to play well, they become increasingly bigger. And if you don’t, they dissipate.”
