A rare, behind the scenes look at the Saints over more than 14 seasons
As the city was rebuilding following Hurricane Katrina, Sean Payton arrived in 2006 as a relative unknown, a first-time NFL head coach tasked with resurrecting a New Orleans Saints team that had just finished 3-13. Two months after Payton was hired, the Saints signed a free agent quarterback who was cast aside by the San Diego Chargers: Drew Brees. Together, these two underdogs joined forces and transformed the Saints from laughingstock to juggernaut. Payton's bold play-calling proved the perfect match for Brees, who threw a league-leading and franchise record 4,418 passing yards as the Saints advanced to the NFC championship game. Three seasons later, the Saints were Super Bowl champions. Payton and Brees is the definitive account of how this dynamic duo transformed a team, a city, and the game of football.  


"Payton and Brees?is a fine look at a head coach-quarterback pairing that has helped define the NFL for the past fifteen years." —Football Outsiders 

"They've changed football. Sean has changed the way teams play offense, and Drew has changed the way we look at quarterbacks." —Joe Brady, Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator
