We know that Sean Payton is a jerk.
Here’s a guy who was mean to Jamie Apody, ran the score up on the Eagles, and also got himself suspended after trying to cover up Bounty Gate.
But with this comment, he appears to be swiping Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman while perhaps sticking up for his golf buddy, Doug Pederson:
"Yeah, we're not looking at the Eagles for any model." — Sean Payton, when asked if their kicker-long snapper signings this week were similar to what Philadelphia did with Josh McCown in previous years.

Ahh… well he’s right. We stink right now. The Saints are in the NFC Divisional Round and can go to the championship game if they beat Tom Brady and the Bucs this weekend. The Eagles just fired their Super Bowl-winning coach and are looking for a new one.
Payton is still a jabroni, however.
At least the Eagles won a ring within the last 10 years. Payton has had future Hall of Famer Drew Brees for 15 years now and managed one title while failing to even get back to the big game in the 14 other seasons.
It’s not like the Saints’ model is lighting the world on fire either, when you consider the talent that team has had over the years. They are 5-6 in the playoffs dating back to 2010.
I hope the Buccaneers hang 50 on them.
