05:01 PM ET 10.05 | This weekend in New Orleans, Saints quarterback Drew Brees will break Johnny Unitas' record for most touchdown passes in consecutive games if he tosses one touchdown against the Chargers. Brees petitioned the NFL to allow banned head coach Sean Payton to attend the game and his request was granted. Payton was suspended for the season by commissioner Roger Goodell for the Bountygate scandal and can't return to the organization until after the Super Bowl. On the surface, it looks like Brees just wants Payton to be there to witness history. Is there more to it than that, though?

Yes, Payton will hold up a sign reminding the Chargers they are coached by Norv Turner. That should be enough to derail the Bolts.

LOL. Hard to understand why Norv keeps getting head coaching jobs. He's a nice guy but cannot get it done as a HC. The flip side of the Norv coin is Wade Phillips. If I was a HC, I'd hire both guys as my OC and DC, which is where they are at their best.

Is Goodell goings to post security around Payton to ensure he stays in the stands???

If they don't play defense, I fail to see how any of this is going to matter.

He's had three head coaching jobs so it's not as if he gets hired by a different team each year. What I don't get is why the Chargers keep him. It is clear that he cannot get the team over the top.

It's pretty cool that he has the opportunity to do it against his old team that gave up on him.

It's a free country, if He wants to show up at a game He should do just that. Tell Choirboy and the owners to bite it. Someone needs to put these clowns in there place.
