Sean Payton & Marcus Peters Don’t Want To Talk Gumbo This Week
Sean Payton doesn't like gumbo?
No, he doesn't. He freely admits that he doesn't like seafood.
Payton and Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters don't even like talking about gumbo?
Well, the duo didn't on Wednesday.
What's this all about?
Well, you have to go back to Week 9, when the Saints beat the Rams, 45-35, thanks in part to receiver Michael Thomas, who compiled 12 catches for 211 yards and one touchdown in the triumph.
After the game, Payton said he liked the matchup of Thomas against Peters “a lot.”
Peters took exception to that, responding by saying; "“Tell Sean Payton to keep talking that (expletive); we gonna see him soon” Peters said in November. “Because I like what he was saying on the sidelines, too, so tell him to keep talking that (expletive) and I hope he sees me soon. You feel me? And then we’re gonna have a good little, nice little bowl of gumbo together.”
Does any of this mean anything? Probably not.
The NFC Championship Game will not be decided because of any war of words, or lack of.
That being said, when you have a side note like this, no matter how small, involving a two-time Pro Bowl defensive back, and a possible future Hall of Fame coach, it makes things even more fun to talk about.
Saints/Rams in the NFC Championship Game this Sunday. To steal a thought from Terrell Owens; "Get your gumbo ready!"
