By the way, we know you're busy being baffled as to what the Jets are doing out buying a Tim Tebow jersey right now, but no matter your thoughts about the Jets' trade, just be happy you're not a Saints fan right now. Thanks to that whole "try to hurt players for extra cash" program the Saints had running, the NFL has suspended coach Sean Payton for a year and now-Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams "indefinitely." There were a horde of other punishments too. Strong arguments have been made that this is more a PR offensive by commissioner Roger Goodell than something's that is going to make a difference, but that doesn't do the Saints any good right now. By the way, the last guy to be suspended "indefinitely" by the NFL? Sal Alosi, the Jets coach who tripped a Dolphin on the sideline. (A Dolphin player, not the mammal dolphin.)
