New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton met with the media Saturday, Aug. 5 following the team's practice at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center. Some takeaways;

  1. Payton announced that Monday's practice has been moved to the indoor facility which means it will be closed to the public.
  2. The team worked a lot Saturday on the 2-minute installation. Payton stressed how important the final two minutes of the first half and the end of the game are to winning. "It's a critical part of our game right now," he said.
  3. The heat was more of an issue Saturday with several players leaving early because of cramps.
  4. Saints legend Morten Andersen is being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night and Payton told a story of watching Andersen kick in college when he was with Michigan State. "It's fantastic for the Saints," Payton said. "'s much-deserved and we're happy for him."
