09:17 AM ET 10.28 | Joe Vitt's personal nightmare finally ends today, at least for now, just in time for Saints' interim head coach to confront a professional nightmare ... Peyton Manning. When you ask Vitt if he has any regrets about Bountygate, you can almost hear his blood pressure boil over the phone. "There's no bounty," he said defiantly. "I said this to a federal judge in New York when I went up to testify." He said there was no intent to maim, injure or end the career of another NFL player. "Twenty-eight other teams hurt opponents more than we did," Vitt said. "You had a better chance of getting hurt when you played them than when you played us. Ndamukong Suh had more personal fouls for unnecessary roughness than Scott Fujita, Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith combined." He was asked if he feels cheated. "I feel [ticked]," he said. "How do you think I feel? I have no recourse. I'm a coach in this league. My story hasn't changed one time. There is no bounty."
