Sean Payton has no regrets

As we discussed earlier, New Orleans coach Sean Payton has taken some criticism for allowing quarterback Drew Brees to stay in the game as he broke Dan Marino’s record for passing yardage in a season Monday night.

Payton was asked about the criticism Tuesday and said he has no regrets over how he handled the situation.

“Like I said last night, you are going to make decisions and people will write what they want after the fact,’’ Payton said. “You go with your gut. I thought it was the right decisions last night. This morning, I thought it was clearly the right decision. I felt overwhelmingly that most people that are involved in this game, and know a little bit about this game, probably felt the same way. The great thing about our game is that you can have an opinion about it. I felt that was in the minority.’’
