With New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton coming back from a year long suspension and his interim putting up 28.8 points a game, the team still hasn’t decided who will be the play-caller this season.
Through NFL.com, Payton speaks on the situation briefly.
“We haven’t worked through all that yet,” Payton said, per Mike Triplett of The Times-Picayune. “But Pete’s invaluable. His role will be significant.“
This isn’t the same issue the Cowboys have where things look bleak no matter the decision. Peyton is one of the best in the league at play-calling. His replacement last year Pete Carmichael has also developed into a a pretty good play caller so it is a win-win for the team.
Ultimately I think the team will stick with Payton. As the popular saying goes “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton isn't quite decided on who'll be calling the plays when the season begins.

Rookie linebacker Rufus Johnson hopes his journey from Division II to the NFL in New Orleans is boosting his ailing father's morale.
Indeed, while many Saints were preparing to enjoy a weekend off following the final practice on minicamp on Thursday, Johnson planned a short flight home to Dallas and some quality time in the hospital room of his father, Rufus Sr.
The first season of David Hawthorne's tenure with the Saints was about as close to a disaster as one could imagine. Performance wise, it was in keeping with some of the medium profile veteran linebacker pick ups of the past like Bryan Cox, Derrick Rodgers, Dan Morgan, Clint Ingram, Orlando Ruff and Rufus Porter that resulted in pure trash. Injuries limited his playing time and...
The Saints made mini camp available for the fans and media to witness today so there's finally some updates to share. Here's some information I gathered from numerous sources on twitter, most notably Larry Holder of the Times Picayune.

Jimmy Graham talks about his performance last season as if it was a disappointment.
Forget that many tight ends would have been pleased to make 85 catches - which led the Saints - for 982 yards and nine touchdowns.
That still represented a drop-off for the 6-foot-7 Graham, who had one the best seasons ever for a tight end in 2011.
A converted college basketball player drafted...
