strong>Sean Payton is prohibited from having any contact of any kind with the New Orleans Saints this season. By definition, he is “prohibited from direct or indirect communication of any sort with employees of the 32 clubs, including through third parties; and such prohibited communications shall include, but are not limited to, phone or electronic contact.” While we’re not saying Payton has ever violated those terms, we have no way of knowing for sure.

Eli Manning says the Giants have to score more touchdowns

Eli Manning is taking the ‘we’re not far” route instead of thinking things on the offense need to be changed. Manning feels the Giants need to convert in the red zone and not leave points on the field. Manning came up short in his battle against RG3 and that probably doesn’t sit well with him. While he has won 2 Super Bowls, RG3 in three quarters of the season has the entire...
