Check out what Sean Payton plans on doing during his summer vacation.
Honestly, I think this could strengthen the Saints, bring them together as a team, and possibly benefit Sean Payton in 2013. Coaches actually spend way too much time on their job (I remember reading that Jon Gruden slept 3 hours a night) and that job can often become stagnant. I think Payton will approach his job in a new way, possibly more motivated than ever, when he returns to the Saints.
Interim head coach Joe Vitt said the following:
“Understand one thing: We ain’t down. We are not down. We’ve got 41 wins over the last three years and we’ve got a great building full of players. We’ve got a great scouting staff. We’ve got a great administration. We’ve got a great owner. And we are looking forward to starting the season. Again, the excuses are out there for us not to perform. But we are all held accountable for our jobs. Anything that happens outside this building can never be an excuse for what’s taken place inside the building. Our players are working hard. We’ve had a great first week.”
You can tell by listening to Vitt that the team already has an “us vs. the world” mentality. Even if no player suspensions get incurred, the players themselves already feel misrepresented, and feel like their culture of violence was no different than that of many other teams (and they are probably right).
