Will Drew Brees be the same without Sean Payton on the sidelines?

Will Drew Brees be the same without Sean Payton on the sidelines? Rizzla: Yes, Drew Brees will be the same. I do not expect him to have the best passing season in NFL history once again but Brees will not miss a step with Payton not on the sidelines this year. Brees helped Payton create the offense and the interim head coaches have pledged to keep the status quo. In addition offensive...
