METAIRIE, La. ― Saints coach Sean Payton thinks he knows where the whistles came from that had the Titans calling shenanigans after Sunday’s game.

Sitting in front of assembled reporters Monday, Payton, with a straight face, divulged his three theories.

It might just be easier to let him explain.

“I have three theories on the whistle, and I think I have the answer,” Payton said.  “There is a high school field nearby and they were playing a game while our game was going on, so I thought maybe it was the high school whistle we heard.  We weren’t in Memphis.  We were in Nashville and I saw a guy dressed in black that looked like Johnny Cash so I thought maybe he was blowing a whistle in the crowd. 

He went on.

“But I really think Whistle Monster who’s really famous in these parts,” said Payton, holding up a picture of the Whistle Monster. “He’s a famous Who Dat Saints fan.  So high school football games, Johnny Cash, and Whistle Monster – and I’m going to go with Whistle Monster.  He was there helping us out anyway he could, and he got a little press here so I think that’s my answer.”
