Why no interest . . .

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I have been reading all the press on the head coach job and the litany of "ass" coaches being interviewed. Other than Benson being a cheap bas%#$d why has there been no interest in Mike Tice? Why do we continue ...

Why no interest . . .

I have been reading all the press on the head coach job and the litany of "ass" coaches being interviewed. Other than Benson being a cheap bas%#$d why has there been no interest in Mike Tice? Why do we continue to be a training stop for head coach wannabes, why not get a proven head coach for a change?

Oh I guess you are blaming the boat incident on Tice. These were supposedly growen men that shouldn't chaperones 24/7. Even with all of there distractions this year they had a hellof better record than we did. I am not touting Tice as much as I am someone who has been in the trenches. Why not Mike Sherman? I am just tired of "ass" coaches that have been riding someones coattails and are not proven. Of course, with Benson as the owner I don't think Vince Lombardi or George Halas could have succeded.

... those weren't trenches, it was the Maginot Line...
... of course, we would have the "Horn Factor"...

Now, I find it amusing that you call Benson a cheap $*^$% , yet ask why Mike Tice, "$600,000 a year" Mike Tice, "I've got more 8-8 records than Jim Haslett" Mike Tice, has not been brought up for an interview...

Pak . . .

Yeah maybe Eric Manghini at least he will be coming from a true winning mindset. But with the names mentioned Henderson (Jets), Cathorn (Browns), Peyton (Cowboys) or Hill (Fresno State) come on lets get real. If you go for an "ass" coach go for one from the Pats, Colts or someone that is proven. But again the HC will be only as good as Ben$on will support him. It is reported the Lienart nor Young are interested in coming to the Saints and with the outlook I can't say I blame them. But if you get a blue chip HC then the future would look better to the draftees. I just don't want to go through the same ol' chinese fire drill that we keep repeating.

we need a head coach that can change the entire mindset of the franchise. we need a marvin lewis type. he came into a loser organization (bengals much like the saints in this) and changed the attitude. in one year they became contenders and in 3 years had one of the best teams in the nfl. remember they stilll do have a loser for an owner, but that hasn't stopped them.

i think donnie henderson would be able to come in and change the mentality of the team. one of the first things he would have to do is fire all the assistants and coordinatoors except maybe mike shepard. so far henderson is the only possible candidate that i see being strong enough to shift the mindset of the franchise. i see a lot of positives with both marriuci(sp) and martz but they are not strong willed enough.
