This was on ESPN.com

Martz heads Saints' list
<Jan. 6> The Saints have added Mike Martz to their growing list of coaching candidates, The Times-Picayune is reporting. The Saints contacted the former Rams coach on Jan. 5 to arrange an interview for late next week, a league source told the paper.
The Saints met with Cowboys assistant head coach Sean Payton on Jan. 4. They also have scheduled interviews with Browns offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon and Jets defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson. The team has asked permission to speak with Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis, according to sources, but there are no indications that an interview has been scheduled.

I, honestly, wouldn't mind Martz. I mean, someone said earlier that the Saints would be a cross between "USC and the Rams." Is that so bad?

St. Louis
2001 - 14-2 *Playoffs
2002 - 7-9
2003 - 12-4 *Playoffs
2004 - 8-8 *Playoffs
2005 - 6-10

Granted, the Rams fell off this year. However, Martz was in the hospital. Still, they made the playoffs 3 times in 5 years. I don't have to post about what they did BEFORE the 2001 season. I think we all know.

And, of course, USC has 2 National Championships (ok, 1 for you LSU fans) and was the runner up this year.

I know we have problems on defence, but am I missing something here? When was the last time we made it to the playoffs? When was the last time we've had a winning record?

Martz would be a definate improvement over anything we've had the last couple of years.

I thought the NFL did not permit interviews of coaches that are still in Playoffs

I dunno. I think he has lost his marbles, but there you go.

I could live with that. Carthon was my pick back when everyone was clamoring for Romeo Crennel. Now, he's served under Crennel for a year in Cleveland, and prior to that, as the OC in Dallas under Parcells.

Pull the trigger.

I think that I am leaning that way too. I wouldn't mind seeing Carthon

They will have to wait for the Giants to be out of the playoffs before they can speak to him. Honestly I don't think that will be too long.

Actually that's incorrect. Coordinators of teams in the playoffs are allowed to interview for jobs until the divisional round of the playoffs, if given permission by their teams.
