Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Joe Vitt OK’d to Attend Saints-Chargers Game

Apparently when Drew Brees talks, the NFL listens.

The Saints quarterback requested permission for Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis and Joe Vitt to attend Sunday night’s game against San Diego and the NFL has granted that request. Now the trio will be able to be on hand at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as Brees attempts to break the late Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas’ record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass. The two are currently tied at 47 games.

According to a statement by the NFL, “Coaches Payton and Vitt and Mickey Loomis will be permitted to watch the game in a private area of the stadium and will have no contact with the team.”

What this “private area” means, who knows? Most think it will be a suite of some sorts in the stadium. This all comes after former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was allowed to attend a St. Louis Rams game at the Edward Jones Dome. Of course Williams is suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

With an 0-4 New Orleans Saints needing any type of boost, this seems to be just what the doctor ordered.
