Sean Payton says mocking Vikings 'Skol' clap was 'good playoff fun'

And now, Vikings fans counting on Millie's good luck want to send her to Philadelphia for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles.

He should, since he has an iconic hand in their suffering.

The victory came on the last play of the game, with Vikings quarterback Case Keenum connecting with Stefon Diggs, who was able to scamper into the end zone thanks to a bit of blown coverage on the part of the Saints defense.

According to Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune, Sean Payton was essentially working blind and making those challenges with just his gut as the Saints' replay monitor in their booth was down.

"I went nuts. I absolutely channeled the energy of their excitement and shared it not only on the radio but with some fist pumps and fun", Allen said. When asked to assess Bradford's progress, Zimmer said, "It's kind of hard to judge with five practices".

Bears hire Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator
Perhaps the biggest appeal of the Colts' job is having Andrew Luck, one of the few franchise quarterbacks in the NFL . But the offense was still formidable, resulting in quarterback Marcus Mariota winning the 2014 Heisman Trophy.


With 10 seconds remaining in the game and the Vikings trailing the Saints by one with the ball at the Minnesota 39, the Vikings needed a miracle. "I think we have a window of time here where we can really make a run for it, if you continue to have a mindset of getting better and striving forward", added Brees.

The Vikings fans were pretty excited about that one, as were we. And the devastating loss to the Vikings Sunday night brought back all of those feelings of how the Saints were so close, yet so far. The Saints also lost that game. "At that moment, I thought it was dirty, but as I looked at it on film, it wasn't dirty at all".

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner resigned the day after Zimmer had the first of eight eye surgeries to address a torn retina. The idea behind "Seven Heaven" was for Keenum to hit the furthest receiver down field, have that player get out of bounds and bring out the field goal unit to kick the game victor. "And, I mean, if it happens again, then I shouldn't be playing". "It's encouraged. I think it's a great opportunity to let everything out there", sports psychologist, Dr. Allie Wagener said.

Payton explained afterward that the monitor in the team's booth was malfunctioning, so he didn't have an assistant coach warning him not to throw his red challenge flag.

A miracle Vikings fans hope to relieve a couple more times, ending in a long-elusive Super Bowl victory right here at home.
