Sean Payton is a Jerk


I’ve always thought Sean Payton was overrated. It turns out he’s kind of a dick, too.

Let’s start with the overrated part. Payton has been blessed with a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Drew Brees since arriving in New Orleans 13 seasons ago. Since then, Brees has completed 68.5% of his passes with 440 touchdowns while averaging over 300 yards passing per game. Somehow, the Saints have managed only a single championship during that time. Hell, they haven’t even reached another Super Bowl despite the absence of a truly dominant NFC team as a roadblock. Think I’m being unfair? What if Doug Pederson stuck around Philadelphia for another decade, got that same type of quarterback play, and never even reached another Super Bowl? He would undoubtedly be crucified, yet Payton is routinely slurped as some transcendent coaching brain.

Now to the part about him being a dick. Here is 6ABC’s Jamie Apody asking Payton about the Saints not “letting their foot off the gas pedal” during his team’s 48-7 win over the Eagles back in November and how the visitors may use that as motivation in the rematch. Payton wasn’t having it:

If you pay attention to film, and you watch the film, it was one of those games where you’re playing a real good offense and late in the game we scored a touchdown. But we were 30-something [sic] at that point, so, but we played well, so go ahead.

If you pay attention to the film. Love that. What a total football guy answer. You’ve gotta watch the film to know that the Saints needed to make a play with a 31-point lead in the fourth quarter when Brees connected with running back Alvin Kamara on a 37-yard touchdown. Simple X’s and O’s stuff, Jamie. Gotta know it.

When Apody tried to clarify, Payton then went all in:

We’re all playing hard in these divisional playoff games, right? Are you gonna play harder? [Sarcastically] That’s a good question.

You’re absolutely right, Sean. It was a good question. Say, here’s another one. Every team is playing hard in these divisional playoff games, right? Is your team going play harder because you dumped a Brink’s truck of money into a wheelbarrow and rolled it into the locker room earlier this week?

I guess we’re about to find out.

    1. Awww Sean is mean to local girl reporter and tries to score TDS against our team.
      What a d!ck. Wow this fanbase is beyond weak.

      1. Concur completely! That was a “dick” answer? It was a little douchey but c’mon, did he really hurt anyone’s feelings? I thought Mike Quick had a great line during the Saints Eagles game when Merrill Reese started whining about the Saints trying to score in the 4th quarter: This isn’t Little League, if you want the other team to stop scoring, stop them from scoring.”

        1. You, and your team from TEXAS (lol!) are collective LOSERS. America’s team plays in the birthplace of America, which is Philadelphia. Do you call Texas radio stations and join in? I doubt it. Why not try it? Maybe they’ll embrace you. But they probably won’t, knowing you’re a fraud. Now crawl back into your littler troll hole and be quiet.

          E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!!!

  1. If you do not want the score “run up” on you, stop them.
    I would love to break Jenkins’ tiny little middle finger.

  2. It was a weak question. Nothing wrong with his answer. What did she expect him to say back? Why would a team need that as motivation? It’s the playoffs.

    1. Didn’t Payton have a bunch of armed guards with cash and a Lombardi trophy come into the locker room to give motivation to his players this week?

  3. Was there any money for them to run 13-3 season know there wasn’t so let stop crazy talk, Saints don’t need to be motivated, they not sore losers take they whipping like a team and keep it moving trying to get better. This is what every team need to do.

  4. Oh, so Sean Payton isn’t a good coach because he only has one championship. What about all of the extremely talented coaches,and players that didn’t win one championship. Does that diminish their legacies, I think not, besides Sean Paytons book is still being written . So stop talking like it is over, looks like you are gonna have more reasons to be jealous.

  5. Peyton is a dill who looks in the mirror and thinks he’s 25 and crushing it. The reporter also asked a lazy, tired question and is trying to leverage the embarrassment for likes/follows. That said, Saints 43 Eagles 16. Foles 3 picks, tons of penalties and defense gives up lots of third and longs.

  6. Drew Brees wasn’t a hall of fame quarterback until he got hooked up with Sean Payton. He wasn’t lighting the world up in San Diego. The most touchdowns he threw in a season in San Diego was 27. He threw more than that in reason season but one in New Orleans.

    Also, that was a dumb question by Apody and an appropriate answer by Payton. This stupid take by Banks is about as sports radio as any could be. WTF happened to this site?

      1. This is the dumbest of takes. Brees was almost a Dolphin that season. He was going there, had an offer and only didn’t end up there because he failed the physical by the team doctors. So NO didn’t “jump all over him.”

        You are an idiot clown who is just carrying water for the Eagles right now on all this because Payton answered a stupid question that way he did. I would guess too that if it was Eskin or something you wouldn’t be writing “poor Eskin.”
