Harry_Seldon: dickfreckle: I'm not an expert on Brees-era Chargers, but there are any number of reasons that could explain his performance there vs. his career with the Saints.

Football is a team sport. Modern NFL football is all about the organization. Why do you think the modern coaching staffs are so well paid, and expertise floats around the league? You can't just win by putting the best talent on the field. The rules and increasing national scope of the game push for raw talent parity. You win consistently by superior organization and execution.

Yes. That's why I routinely refer to football as chess with higher stakes, like broken bones. It's the very reason the game is exciting. If I just wanted to see some guys rage at each other I'd go to the bar down the street.

For every 6 second highlight reel play, a week of Machiavellian plotting was put in, not to mention the wit to deploy it at a certain juncture. Sometimes it's pure luck, but it's usually superior brains that win games.

And that's why I love football, and will miss Sean Payton this year.
