Saints head coach Sean Payton is 0-3 in road playoff games.
|Super Bowl winner has zero road playoff victories. |
With frigid temperatures forecast for the Saturday night wild card game with the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, Payton will try something different.
“We’ve got new
travel warm-up suits," Payton said. "They’re a little warmer. And they actually look a little
nicer, too. So we ditched the old ones.”
All kidding aside, compared to their perfect record inside the Superdome this season the Saints were a hideous 3-5 team on the road. And Payton, who was suspended the entire 2012 season for his role in Bountygate, has just one postseason victory in three tries since winning the Super Bowl.
Whatever adjustments Payton will make he's not willing to share them.
"I think after the
sweat suits the Gatorade cover we’re changing on game day and we’re changing up
the snack the night before," Payton said. "I think those are big changes in regards to dealing
with the weather and the wind."
With another playoff road loss the joke is going to be on Payton.
