Following the first back-to-back losing seasons in Sean Payton's career, the Super Bowl winning coach has recently been more transparent with the media than at any other time during his decade in New Orleans. And a good example of that occurred yesterday when Payton admitted the severe lack of leadership on the field, and in the locker room, following the exodus of veterans Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper among others. Here's Payton's take on the situation.

As you can imagine, NFL players are an extremely proud group. And when you consider the cases of former Saints Darren Sproles & Malcolm Jenkins, they both have lots of reasons for that pride. Sproles, one of the most electrifying players of the best decade, and Jenkins, a former 1st round pick & starter on a Super Bowl Champion, were both extremely disappointed that they were cast off like yesterday's news 2 seasons ago. You can bet that for this Eagles duo, Sunday can't get here fast enough.
