Sean Payton compliments Willie Snead, Dustin Hopkins, but offers no assurances

METAIRIE, La. -- None of the New Orleans Saints' 53-man roster decisions have been revealed yet as of Friday afternoon. Coach Sean Payton said in a conference call that the staff would meet again later Friday to continue the evaluation process leading up to Saturday's 4 p.

Asked Sean Payton if K Dustin Hopkins' 53-yard FG miss left Saints back to Square 1 in kicker battle instead of confirming their decision. "That's a good question ... It's a good distance, he had the leg for it, he just missed it wide," Payton said, explaining that they'll go back now and really look closely at everything in Hopkins vs. Zach Hocker. "(Hopkins) has been fairly consistent in camp. He's striking the ball well. And yet you're hoping - I was hoping, certainly we all were hoping there would be a wider margin with either of those players."

An ugly, ugly finish to Saints' preseason finale as 10-0 lead turned into 38-10 loss to Packers. But keep in mind, the guys who struggled most this summer aren't supposed to play. The starters looked decent all summer -- scored every time Drew Brees was on the field. The biggest concern is the DB injuries to Jairus Byrd and Keenan Lewis.

Saints S Pierre Warren with great effort to force fumble and another great effort to recover fumble on punt return. It was nullified by penalty but still the kind of play that cements a roster spot for a guy who has spent the summer on the bubble.

Both of the Saints' summer breakout WRs deliver on opening drive. Willie Snead walks in for easy short TD pass on pick play after Brandon Coleman's 45-yard catch to start the drive. Didn't the Packers read up on Snead before this game?!

Drew Brees sitting out Saints' preseason finale, as expected. Luke McCown gets the start and hits WR Brandon Coleman with a 45-yard deep ball behind D on New Orleans' first play from scrimmage. Coleman finally has a breakout play to match the hype he's earned in practice.

New Orleans' preseason finale will be an important tuneup for its young defensive backs. Who will have to step up for the injured Keenan Lewis? Thursday team previews

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Saints LB Scott Shanle glad to see Roger Goodell being overruled. Shanle texted: "He rules with iron fist because the players union allowed him to be the czar in punishments. Players union is to blame more than anyone else. He is an arrogant individual who has been allowed to do it since he became commisioner. Finally a court and a judge are the players voice of reason when dealing with him. Everyone finds out how corrupt the NFL is in every case with lack of evidence and shady tactics when it comes time to prove evidence. The league office has to change their ways because public is tired of it as well."
