We’ve heard what plenty of fans and talking heads think about Sean Payton’s decision to move his family to Dallas. And we’ve heard what Saints owner Tom Benson and general manager Mickey Loomis think. And what Payton himself thinks (he supports his own decision).
But what about the players? Or, more specifically, the most important player?
Pat Yasinkas of ESPN talked with quarterback Drew Brees. Here’s what the Super Bowl XLIV MVP said about his head coach’s move:
It's a non-issue. I think everyone wants to immediately jump to conclusions and all of them are so untrue. The first of which is his family and him are having problems. No, that's not the case at all. The other one is he's taking a job with the Dallas Cowboys. No, not true either. People want to immediately jump to conclusions as to why he's bought a home in Dallas but most players and coaches in the league have a home base, a place where they're either from or where they spent a lot of time before so they have a solid foundation. There's not a guy who's more committed to his team and the city of New Orleans than Sean Payton. I think he's proven that.''
