FRIDAY: Don Mattingly
FRIDAY: Terry Francona

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton joined the show to talk about his season and more. Here are some of his takes:

— Payton weighed in on the passing frenzy across the NFL. “This league has shifted in the balance of passing offense, but there’s still the need to run the ball and control the clock,” Payton said.

Payton said that yesterday the Saints used their running game to control the clock.

— Payton said that one of the biggest challenges for the league is to figure out a level of consistency on what is a personal foul, especially because of the way defenses are now chasing quarterbacks to counter all the passing.

— Payton faces the Carolina Panthers next week. He said the Panthers coaches are doing a great job of putting him in comfortable positions. Payton is worried about when Newton goes off script. That’s when the big plays come.

— Payton thought the officials blew the Victor Cruz fumble at the end of the Giants-Cardinals game. He said the play exists for a valid reason, but they didn’t apply it the right way. He said Cruz didn’t intentionally down himself the right way.
