Sean Payton Discusses Onside Kick

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has been dissecting Super Bowl XLIV with The Times-Picayune reporter Mike Triplett. It's been a fascinating series, and today, Payton discusses the third quarter, including the decision to call the onsides kick coming out of halftime.

"I decided, hey, we're going to start the second half with this onside kick, so I told our guys, 'Let's be ready for the ball to be on the left hash just past midfield,'" Payton said. "Now, just as you say that, you also walk down to the defense and say, 'Be ready for a short field in case we don't recover.'"
