Time to check in on the team that blew the whistle on the team that (allegedly) blew the whistle.

"I've got three theories on the whistle theory, and I think I've got the answer," Payton said during his news conference. "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."
That's theory No. 1. The runt of the litter.
"We weren't in Memphis; we were in Nashville," Payton went on, "so I saw a guy dressed in black and it looked like Johnny Cash, and maybe he was blowing a whistle in the crowd."
Johnny Cash is dead. Theory No. 2 is implausible.
"But I figured out I really think Whistle Monster -- who is famous in these parts -- (did it)," Peyton said, holding up a photo of noted Saints fan Leroy Mitchell, who wears a giant whistle on his head during games. "He's a famous 'Who Dat' Saints fan. And so high school football game, Johnny and June Cash (editor's note: also deceased), Whistle Monster -- I'm going to go with Whistle Monster. I think he was there helping us any way he could."
Good to have that settled. Jake Scott should be cool with everything now.
