It could have gone either way, but I feel that Payton deserved it more. People must have forgotten that Brees came back from surgery as well, not to mention that I have heard people say that Brees has no arm also.
We had Deuce coming back from ACL surgery also. A roster of 27 new players, finding a gem in the last round of the draft. And a D that was supposed to be crap. Taking players like Fujita, Shanle and Simoneau. Getting rid of Stallworth. He did one great job.
Every poll in the preseason had us dead last, especially coming off of the shitty season we went through last year. And what happens? We win the division and get a first round bye.
Now, don't get me wrong, Mangini did a hell of a job, I will not deny it, but I think the right man got it this year.
We might beat up shitcan teams, but we didn't play Oakland, Miami, Detroit, Minnesota, Houston. What do we call those types of teams??
