Head coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints walks the sidelines during the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on October 10, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona. The Cardinals defeated the Saints 30-20.

Sean Payton doesn’t know what’s going to happen with the NFL lockout. Doesn’t pretend to know. Understands that the two sides are oceans apart. He’s looking past the unknowns, dealing with the here and now.

You know, the lockout.
