Tough Day at the Office for Sean Payton (Video)
New Orleans head coach Sean Payton suffered a broken knee, a broken tibula, and a torn MCL on Sunday after one of his own players ran out of bounds and inadvertenly bowled over him in the first half. Payton continued to command his team from the bench for the remainder of the half before staying in the team's locker room throughout the second half -- all the while still coaching.
If this doesn't qualify as one of the grittiest coaching performances in league history, I don't know what would.
