I'll never get that feeling again until AB is out of town and we have someone along the lines of Darth Vader or Doug Flutie at QB. If our new QB cant choke defensive linemen to death, do the Super Bowl shuffle, use the Jedi mind trick on the refs, or serve us a delicious and nutritious bowl of Flutie Flakes, we are doomed.

I'm sorry to be the one to break the news to you. But hey. There it is.

Good news everyone, We raped the Cowboys for our coaching staff.
My best friend is a huge Cowboys fan so he's kinda pissed. We just had a little fistfight about us takinge their coaches, me beinga an OT and him a DB I won of course

"This is a rather interesting move since Palmer seemed to be a good fit in Dallas, where he would reunite with Parcells, quarterback Drew Bledsoe and offensive line coach/run-game coordinator Tony Sparano."

..guess he wants the chance to coach Leinart..

Kinda funny. Lurking on another forum where everyone is up in arms over this hire.

It's so subjective at this point...there is no way to know how this mix will work till we see it in action.
We certainly have the whitest 3 coaches in the league....which is a little annoying.

The way I see it...Payton is an up comer who is well thought of (for what that's worth....I mean Venturi is a great football guy if you ask around.)

Gibbs has seen alot of football and is a welcome change, if not just for the sheer sake of change. Hopefully, he will get us away from read and react and get us to attack mode. If your D is going to get burned, you may as well make it on a safety blitz. Watching the Steelers the last few weeks has really made me long for the Saints D of yore, where QBs were terrified to get on the field. Will Gibbs take us there? Who knows....but we certainly weren't there before. (Oh, and Gibbs looks like a preacher who would molest small children...which is never good.)

And Palmer....looks like a tool. Kinda has that face you could see yourself teeing off on in 2 years. But, he does have HC experience, albeit it a bad run. He and Payton will be working togetether to gameplan. Having never seen these 2 work together with our guys...it really is impossible to know what to expect. Sounds like Payton likes to gun it a bit, which is fine as long as he does it creatively. Palmer's reputation as a teacher should help in preparation leading up to Sunday. Could be a good mix.......could suck balls. But....it is exciting to know that we'll see a different Saints team this fall.

And what's up with us beating America's team out of coaches? I thought this was going to be a staff people would run from based on what the experts said..... Seems like nobody flinched at coming to NO, which I like to see.

Is Leinart really that big of a deal? I really think that we should draft down and get Hawk. Do you guys honestly feel that Leinart can come in and eventually get the job done?

Yes, IMHO, I believe he can. It's not just my opinion, but every draft analyst, so far, agrees that he will be a successful NFL QB. This was not the case with guys like Leaf, where some analyst said he would be great and a few others were not convinced. It is unanimous with Lienart. While not all analyst are convince that Young will be a NFL QB, they all agree that Lienart will be, at the very least, a good, if not great, NFL QB.


As far as the topic at hand, does anyone know what the coaching staff turnover was when Haslett took over? I know for a fact that he kept Venturi from the previous regime. Does anyone think that Payton will do a complete house-cleaning?

Why does the fact that they are white have anything to do with coaching? If somebody had switched it around and said "we have the blackest 3 coaches... which is annoying" they'd be called a racist. There's no need to talk about race here. These three guys come highly recommended, and should be good for this franchise.

Hey, Peyton, Palmer, and Gibbs, weren't exactly my first choice either, but I believe that this kind of talk is unnecessary and inappropriate. And it is borderline racist.

No....it IS racist. As the Deuce said....if it was the other way around....it would be called racist. All of a sudden its borderline because the comments were about white coaches? I'm not comin down on you mjf by any means.... but I get tired of buttering up certain things when the races are switched. The only colors that all of us in these forums need to worry about are GOLD and BLACK. Period! ;0)
