Payton plays percussion for Jimmy Buffett

As pointed out earlier in the morning, Peter King’s MMQB column includes a picture of Jimmy Buffett wearing a “Free Sean Payton” T-shirt during a Sunday concert in New Orleans.

As it turns out, the concert also included a little free Sean Payton.  The Saints coach played congas and bongos on at least one song, as shown in this YouTube video.

After reviewing the video, some would say that Payton was hitting the skins roughly as hard as Commissioner Roger Goodell wants NFL players to hit each other.

    Free Sean Payton? Only with the purchase of an equal or lesser Payton.

    What’s more amazing that someone made up “Free Sean Payton” shirts is that there enough idiots that will buy them. P.T. Barnum would be proud.

    Not exactly a humble and remorseful act of contrition, was it?

  4. nothingman20 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:12 AM

    That doesn’t seem like a very good idea when your appeal is only a few days away.

    Like a boss.

    John Stamos and Matthew McConaughey were unavailable for the gig.

    Not a diehard parrothead, but I come from a family of parrotheads. This is damn disapponiting.

    For someone who claims they have to “do 8 months of work into 3 weeks”, Payton spends a lot of time goofing off. First he is out golfing with Parcells and now this.

    I guess we can expect to see pictures of him playing craps in Atlantic City next.

    that’s were you belong not in the nfl

  10. packerpride03 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:28 AM

    Wonder if he scabbed on this job to?

  11. joetoronto says: Apr 2, 2012 10:29 AM

    He’s no John Bonham, that’s for sure, he’s barely touching the skins.

  12. urworstnitemare58 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:37 AM

    The man has to do something to earn a living now that Goodell gave him the boot for a year.

  13. pgui88 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:37 AM

    Payton has officially become a New Orleans native. If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.

  14. dbellina says: Apr 2, 2012 10:37 AM

    More Cowbell!

  15. jimmyhaffa says: Apr 2, 2012 10:42 AM

    He did it because he feels awful.

  16. barbeaux says: Apr 2, 2012 10:42 AM

    This certainly is intriguing news. Please let us know if he goes to Starbucks or takes a dog for a walk.

  17. nflofficeadmin says: Apr 2, 2012 10:46 AM

    At least he’s hitting the skins harder than he does at home.

  18. woodsa22 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:48 AM

    Jimmy had Sean working on an incentive program.

    1. if he hits one drum harder than the other he gets $50.

    2. if he hits a drum and tears a hole in it, he gets $100.

    3. If hit hits a drum, tears a hole in it, picks it up and throws it into the crowd, $1000

    Free Sean Payton? He’ll be free for the next year or so if the suspension stands…

  20. schmitty2 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:51 AM

    “Wasting away in unemploymentville..looking for a team to coach. Some people say that there’s a Gregg Williams to blaaaammme, but I know (da da da da da) it’s my fault too”

  21. cags777 says: Apr 2, 2012 10:51 AM

    Does Jimmy Buffett have an axe to grind now that his beer isn’t a part of the Dolphins stadium name anymore? My advice to him, Saints fans, and especially Payton is to stay away from Margaritaville.

  22. wherezwaldo says: Apr 2, 2012 11:03 AM

    Well he wont be getting any bounty $$$ after the show. Smug Payton was petting them.

  23. desertviking64 says: Apr 2, 2012 11:04 AM

    Practicing when he is panhandling outside the super dome and bourbon street.

  24. jonny42671 says: Apr 2, 2012 11:13 AM

    What a PUNK !!

  25. n0hopeleft says: Apr 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    Payton sucks at percussion.

  26. j0esixpack says: Apr 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    The original percussion player was injured and unable to play when he was blindside tackled by someone who looked a lot like Jonathan Vilma.

  27. thraiderskin says: Apr 2, 2012 11:39 AM

    wow… what a moron.

  28. schmokes says: Apr 2, 2012 11:50 AM

    No one knew it was Payton behind the drums until Shockey spilled the beans.

  29. tigger0924 says: Apr 2, 2012 11:54 AM

    I love it!

  30. dtrb10 says: Apr 2, 2012 12:37 PM

    Wastin away again in cheaterville!

  31. dspyank2k11 says: Apr 2, 2012 12:42 PM

    Does this mean that Payton is going to coach the Fins soon?

    Im waiting for the story to break from ESPN. 🙂

  32. birdbrainsnj says: Apr 2, 2012 12:46 PM

    This is why he’s being suspended. Hes an arrogant moron who is despised by the people that run this league. Every team has a variation of what they did going on. Payton was chosen to be the fall guy because he’s rubbed everyone the wrong way and thinks he’s above it all. Really taking it seriously Sean. Keep it up and you won’t have a job to come back too. You should be on damage control. Not parading yourself around for sympathy like your the one who was wronged.

  33. mding729 says: Apr 2, 2012 12:57 PM

    He should be suspended from that as well!!

  34. bigbluelou says: Apr 2, 2012 12:59 PM

    Keep Your Day Job.

  35. whodat4life28 says: Apr 2, 2012 1:02 PM

    Haha This is awesome, keep giving the finger to the rest of the nation Payton! How does this make you feel Saints haters? About as mad as when we drop 45 in week 1? Hahaha keep telling yourself that the Saints are gonna implode and the SuperBowl was tainted…cause that trophy is still in NOLA and it’s as pretty as it was 2 years ago…and last I checked the offense is still pretty freaking good…maybe the commish will make us play with 10 ppl…we’d prolly still drop a 40 spot…keep hatin though!! It’s just gonna make that who dat chant in febuary that much sweeter for NOLA!!!

  36. skarbar001 says: Apr 2, 2012 1:14 PM

    No one cares about Jimmy Buffett except for dried up southern skanks and frat boys.

  37. nortonfest says: Apr 2, 2012 1:24 PM

    Speak for yourself @Skarbaroo1. Plenty of us parrotheads still around. Buffett will make more this year than you will in your entire life.

    Let me guess, you are a Backstreet Boys fan!

  38. ghostofgilchrist says: Apr 2, 2012 1:37 PM

    oh, “percussion”….at first glance I read “concussion”

  39. ilovefoolsball says: Apr 2, 2012 1:56 PM

    God I love New Orleans. No other coach would be so cool to jam on stage. All other coaches can suck it!

  40. azskinsfan says: Apr 2, 2012 2:46 PM

    Sounds like he’s in another place where they can’t play either.

  41. patsaintsbroncoscheat says: Apr 2, 2012 2:49 PM

    Glad he has a back up job he will need it this year!

  42. Deb says: Apr 2, 2012 6:46 PM

    This guy clearly doesn’t feel any remorse. His punishment wasn’t adequate, and he’s turned the whole thing into a farce. Mr. Benson should fire this clown.

  43. brianbosworthisstonecold says: Apr 2, 2012 10:04 PM

    If you want to substitute giving your relatives Fruitcake for the Holidays this year, try giving them Free Sean Payton T-shirts.
