There has been a lot of talk in recent days about what is “wrong” with the Saints and head coach Sean Payton, after a 3 game-losing streak that includes two back-to-back “beatdowns” in their last 2 games.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the last several days before making my debut here with the Big Easy Believer, trying to figure just what — if anything — is actually wrong with them (and him) or not.
First, the question has to be asked: Has anyone seen Sean Payton? Because from what I see, he seems to be MIA.

The Sean Payton that we know, well, he just is not ok with mediocrity.
The Sean Payton we know used to keep defensive coordinators up all night because of his masterful offensive game plans.
I have an idea of what may of happened to him, but we’ll get to that later on.
We’ll start with what I am seeing now, first of which is……….
