I like Payton, Sherman was my first choice and Payton was my second, if true we'll have a really good coach, he's fairly young, he will come in fresh with new ideas and some of Parcell's knowledge, one thing is for sure, we all have something to look forward to this coming draft and new season...

sherman did not bro. he was handed the frigan job from ray rhodes and the team was sucking ballz. who the hell has said they want martz. not me. i don't know the qwhole thing about firings. that would mean i need to think fora while and don't feel like it but you are probably right. all i said was that i don't think payton deserved the opportunity. if we are in fact hiring him then i hope that i am 150% wrong and he proves it

I was in the Carthon camp, but I have no problem with Payton if this report is true.

Parcells has a good track record of having his assistants becoming good NFL coaches.

Ray Handley is the lone exception.

Saints | Sherman the leading candidate?
Mon, 16 Jan 2006 08:38:15 -0800

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports there was talk in the press box of this weekend's playoff games that New Orleans Saints officials were very impressed with Mike Sherman last week and the former Green Bay Packers head coach has quietly emerged as the leading candidate to fill the Saints' opening at head coach.

I will believe that Payton was offered the job when I see him standing next to Benson at the press conference acknowledging that fact. I will believe Len until then.

Not only that....Payton was the offensive coordinator for the Giants in their Super Bowl year. Had they won that Super Bowl, he would have been hired a couple of weeks later by someone as their head coach.

who is regarded as one of the most creative offensive minds in the game
This guy's offense is one of the most boring offenses I have ever watched. For being so "creative" I would expect his offense to be something like the Rams. Instead it's just plain boring. His teams always finish in the middle of the pack in the offensive statistics. Also, this guy hasn't proven anything. I say take Sherman, the guy who knows how to coach, has 5 winning seasons out of the last 6, with the only losing season because he lost his starting RB, backup RB, ProBowl WR, ProBowl TE, two ProBowl OL, and maybe even another RB somewhere in there. Sherman is a proven winner. His teams have been disciplined, and always seem to be in the playoffs.

LOL what do u mean knows what he's talking about? I could have said what he said. I think everyone here is aware of who Mike Sherman is and what team he's coached. Let's not forget he was FIRED. It's amazing to me how people don't think that's a big deal. He's not good enough for the Packers but he's good enough for us?? Furthermore no one is giving Payton the time of day at all, regardless of the fact that he was the offensive coordinator of a Super Bowl team. I don't see why people are dogging him so much. I'm NOT the one that gives Payton his accolades. His peers do. Go ahead and Google him and you'll see for yourself. If he wasn't qualified to be a head coach I don't think he would be getting job interviews. If he was as bad as you guys are saying I would be interviewing for the freakin job. Give the Saints a little credit. They DO know more about football than any of us do, as much as u would like to think otherwise.

I probably think like most of us do, we will give credit when credit is due. The Saints would have been alot better off the last 38 years having one of us as the coach. Ok maybe not GT, but it could be argued very aggressively.
