I like to think when the New Orleans Saints were 35,000 feet in the air and flying home from Seattle after their 33-27 win over the Seahawks General Manager Mickey Loomis saddled up to head coach Sean Payton and they cracked open whatever adult beverage they prefer, and gave each other a nod and a toast for acquiring Teddy Bridgewater last August.
The Saints believed Teddy Bridgewater was worth a 3rd round draft pick and making the highest-paid backup quarterback because they thought if Drew Brees ever missed significant time, Bridgewater could keep a season from going off the rails. Sunday showed they knew exactly what they were doing.
It must be fantastic to be so right and know your critics, at least 1 game in, are so very wrong. If I was Sean Payton I’d have conducted the post-game press conference like I was Vince McMahon at WrestleMania. I’d have had a bull horn and custom made backdrop with ‘I WAS RIGHT’ in gigantic gold font.
