NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Sean Payton is considered by many in the NFL to be an offensive genius, and i would agree with them.

From mixing in Taysom Hill to the play-calling, or constant motions to throw off the defense pre-snap. Payton is always trying to stay one step ahead of the opponent. A lot has been made this week about the Eagles being totally different this time around on offense with Nick Foles under center, but Payton had an off week to draw up some new things also.

“I think that’s something you grow to expect week-to-week. Obviously with the Super Bowl and a two-week preparation, there’s more time," said Sean Payton.

"Hopefully we’ll be able to present the same thing. I think that’s pretty common. With the film, you’re always looking at their self-scout, you’re always paying attention to what they’re seeing and they have every game constantly updated each week. That’s part of the challenge each week of game planning. I think that’s pretty normal.”
