Goodell: Saints appeals to be heard by end of week
Question of the Day
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he couldn’t speak directly to the Saints situation, but for all the hits he’s taken, he’d be surprised if an opponent was trying to injure him.
“We all respect each other so much,” he said. “We all know how hard it is. It really surprised me that guys would want to try to intentionally hurt somebody. This is a fraternity. There’s so few of us that do it. The average life expectancy is three years in the NFL or something like that.
“It would shock me if people were trying to intentionally hurt people.”
“They probably got a lot on their plate as it is. It’s not my business to jump in,” he said.
“I mean it would be great. That’s somebody coach Payton always talked about in meetings, admired him. He seemed like a great coach. I never played underneath him, but I learned a lot about him. I heard a lot about him. He seems like a great guy,” Thomas said.
“I know we would love to have him if it happens, but we would prefer Payton to be there with his team, to lead us on the way he’s been doing.”
“Hopefully, this doesn’t keep lingering on,” he said. “You don’t want this to linger on while we’re preparing for a season. You want to make sure everything is focused on one thing: Trying to get to that Super Bowl.”
The Super Bowl, by the way, will be played on the Saints‘ home field at the Superdome.
