Coach Sean Payton: Quite the Saint

With somebody as smart and brave as Sean Payton coaching the Saints, I'm not in the least bit surprised at the success they've had since 2006.

Do not attempt to interrupt New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton when he's in the middle of speaking. One particular reporter learned the hard way in the news conference that followed Sunday's game—which the (2-4) Saints lost to the Lions, 24-23. Things got a bit chippy in the presser after the game.
