On a January eve in 2006, the Green Bay Packers unwittingly helped shape the fortunes of the post-Katrina New Orleans Saints.

That was the night an anxious Sean Payton, while in New Orleans being courted for a head coaching job by the Black and Gold, received a telephone call from Packers’ General Manager Ted Thompson.

Payton, also a strong coaching candidate at Green Bay, described the exact moment in his book, “Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life.’’
