Saints coach Sean Payton told reporters this morning that he literally slept with the Lombardi Trophy last night when he crawled into bed around 4:00 AM.
Payton's words this morning come from the Boston Herald:
"This thing laid in my bed next to me," he said. "I rolled over a couple times, and I probably drooled on it, man. Nothing like being an NFL coach and being part of this with great players like Drew Brees. I don’t take that lightly. I’m honored."
Brees also emphasized the word "repeat" when talking about the Super Bowl next year.
Payton even talked about the 2011 Super Bowl location in Dallas.
"Somewhere around midnight last night, we talked about Dallas, Texas. One of the greatest stadiums now that our league knows. There’s probably never enough in regards to challenge."
