Saints ready to make a call? The Saints should decide by Wednesday at the earliest who they want their next head coach to be. Cowboys offensive coordinator Sean Payton and former Packers coach Mike Sherman have a slight edge over other candidates. Former Rams coach Mike Martz is also in the mix along with Maurice Carthon, offensive coordinator of the Browns. Jets defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson also interviewed for the job. The Saints did a good job of putting together a good list of candidates, which is much stronger than anyone thought it would be. They have two former head coaches with winning records and several bright, young assistants. It is GM Mickey Loomis' decision to make, and he isn't supposed to be restricted financially when he makes it.

Also,

Haslett the guy for Lions? Former Saints coach Jim Haslett has a great chance at getting the Lions job. The final three is expected to be Haslett, Steelers offensive line coach Russ Grimm and Bucs defensive line coach Rod Marinelli. Grimm can't be signed until after the Steelers finish their playoff run, and that could kill his bid for the job. The Steelers are playing in the AFC title game and won't become available until next week at the earliest. Expect Haslett to have a second interview this week with the Ford family, which could lead to an offer.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

IMHO, Payton over Carthon, and Sherman over Martz. Payton vs Sherman...hands down Sherman!

Plus if we do make the Sherman decision, we may get Bates. A HUGE improvement over our current DC!

Sheppard is a good (not excellent) QB coach, but not a good OC! Again, IMHO.

I was just listening to Biz Radio 990 and the inside slant show every Monday from 7:00 to 10:00. All the guys were talking like Payton had already been offered the job. Anyone else listening to the show?

Cher, although I am not listening to the broadcast, it would not surprise me if the Saints FO selected Payton. He is upcoming and most likely CHEAP!

What i would be more interested in is with the coach selected will he have the authority to select his coaching staff. If so, who would be in a better position? Payton or Sherman?

IMHO, Sherman, but do not think he will be CHEAP!
