For info, read this http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story?columnist=wojciechowski_gene&id=2734076

In 1987, due to the players strike, many no name 'replacements' had a dream come true when they were briefly on an NFL roster.

One of those was none other than Coach Payton, who played 3 games with the Bears as a QB. The last of those was against our own Saints. Watch the Saints defense beat down on him in this pretty rare video I hoaked up on TYT.

Zorro....Thanx for posting that...fun to watch. Ditka...Payton.....playing the Saints.
After watching Payton try and throw long i understand his man-crush on Drew now.
Great find....we beat Chicago on a warm sunny day, that was probably the last time we played them in such conditions. Much appreciated.

Wow, Payton didn't look good at all.

While I was watching I couldn't get over how much I hate the Bears.

With all those floaters, I thought I was watching Bobby Hebert for a minute :hihi:


I guess there's no longer any question why Payton never played in more than 3 games. Also, kinda weird to see two future Saints coaches on the sideline. One reviled and one lauded. Ironically, it was the terrible coach that had an actual NFL career.

That was the strike year and SP was a "scab"... as you can see a couple of the Dome Patrollers had "crossed the line", so SP and his scabby offense vs part of the best defense in the league at the time... wasn't gonna come out well for SP.

Nothing unusual about him playing QB. He is in my signature when he was a QB in Europe.

Was Antonio Gibson a "scab," or did the Saints pick him up as a replacement player? Didn't Sam Mills "cross the line" as well.

Gibson came over from the USFL. He was on the Saints roster and ended up crossing the picket line. Reggie Sutton was another one that year that crossed the line. He was a draft pick.

That's right. Sutton was drafted out of the U and had all kinds of potential. Always made big plays. What a waste of talent that guy was. Heard from some guys down here that he's basically a junkie now livin on the streets of Downtown Miami. What a shame.
