Payton Says Saints Will Bounce Back After Loss to Skins

Suspended Saints Coach Sean Payton said earlier this week he felt like he’s been able “to kind of disappear.” Payton doesn’t want to give his perspective after each week – win or lose – after being exiled from the team he knows best., Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

“You feel like you’re watching your own family members so when they experience a loss, it’s frustrating,” Payton said. “I think it’s more frustrating when you’re just sitting back afar from a couch watching.”

He said he feels removed from the team and yet he feels so close to the situation at the same time. So Payton understandably watched last Sunday’s game with the keen eye expected by a coach and with the heart of an adoring fan.

“I sat down with a pad and paper and watched the game,” Payton said. “Just started eating a bunch of junk food in the fourth quarter when they were losing.”

“These guys are pros and they understand week by week getting onto the next game and they certainly understand the importance of this next game,” Payton said. “The next one will be important. We’re in the division this week. We’ll handle this the right way.”
