Sean Payton doesn’t tweet often.
And when he does, there’s no mistaking the message.
Over the weekend, the Saints coach posted a photo of the Tom Brady banner at Gillette Stadium, and it was fairly obvious it was a nod from the once-suspended for a year coach to the suspended Patriots quarterback.
And when asked about it during an interview on ESPN Thursday, Payton didn’t bother to try to say it was anything else.
“If someone is asking, then I don’t know that they’ve paid much attention to it all,” Payton said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “There aren’t a lot of people that can understand what Tom is going through. Certainly, I’m one of them.”
I think that’s what the kids these days call a mic drop, and it absolutely makes us wish Payton tweeted more often.
