Kristain@wwl.com - Do I think that it will fire up the Saints and their fans just knowing that Sean Payton, Joe Vitt, and Mickey Loomis will in the Superdome this Sunday? Without question! This team has always fed off the energy of Payton. Even though Payton won't be allowed any contact with the team, and may be completely out of sight...just knowing he's in there along with Looms and Vitt will be something players and fans alike will be looking forward to.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is known as an unbending disciplinarian at times, but I can see why he would waver on the punishment on such a potentially historical night. This will be a chance for these three men so instrumental in Drew's development to be on hand to witness history being made.
Someone here at WWL asked me if I thought the fact that the Super Bowl is in New Orleans this year had anything to do with Goodell allowing for the three suspended men to attend the game. Well, maybe. But I think the number one thing is that it's just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of their players break an NFL record that has stood for more than a half-century. Payton, Loomis, and Vitt were such a part of the growth of Brees as a quarterback, and Brees lobbied to allow them to attend the game. So, that's the basic, simple reason that I think Goodell is allowing them to attend the game.
Sean Payton, Joe Vitt and Mickey Loomis should lead the Who Dat chant at the beginning of the game!
King Goodell's blunders
If Goodell had hard evidence against the Saints, why hasn't he done something with the 4 players? Why should Mr. Peyton, Mr. Vitt and Mr.Loomis suffer, because they don't have a union?
It doesn't matter this team is garbage!
team is not garbage , details win football games
Just one baby!
I wouldn't be surprise on the Saints first prosesion that Drew fakes a handoff to Thomas & airs it out to Joe Morgan streaking down the sideline for a touchdown to get it over with al this distraction so Drew can focus more on the game & not the record as we all know may never be broken as long as Drew & Payton are still on the same team together, or until Drew " I don't know if I can say it " RETIRER!
WHO DAT ALWAYS
Peyton, Vitt, and Loomis can't play defense
Aint's give up 45 points and Rivers throws for over 400 yards.
