Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not knocking him in any way...I think he was the perfect pick for this team. He seems to have some very good organizational skills. He also seems like he has some great leadership skills. I haven't seen a lot ...

Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

I'm not knocking him in any way...I think he was the perfect pick for this team. He seems to have some very good organizational skills. He also seems like he has some great leadership skills. I haven't seen a lot of the statistics that indicate he's some kind of offensive genius or anything. I do remember his Giants teams were better than average offensive teams and the Cowboys did pretty good last season offensively all things considered.

But no matter what, don't you get this feeling like we have a coach that knows what he wants to get done, knows how to get it done, and knows what kind of players are required to get it done, and a coach that's going after the kind of players he needs to be successful right away. I'm particularly impressed with the transformation this team has made since it was announced he was going to be the Saints coach. I will not make any bold predictions like others have but it's clear and evident that some of the players we've added to the team will make this team a better team than the one we watched last year...how much better remains to be seen but I'm confident...how about you?

RE: Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

Hey Skip, you pretty much answered your own question. The guy is a "no nonsense" coach. He is willing to make bold moves to turn things around.

I agree with everything you just said man.

I think the thing that impresses me about Peyton's ability to coach a QB is the fact that the last 3 QB's he's dealt with in Dallas all passed for over 3,000 yards. Bledsoe did it when a lot of people thought he was washed up. Testaverde did it at the age of 89. Quincy Carter did it even though he was hopped up on coke. However, all of these guys still performed well under him. Just think what will happen with a QB still in his prime.

RE: Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

I think I'll give my opinion after I see some results 1st. Getting rid of Sully and Brooks bring in some free agent lbs is great but a pee-wee coach would've made those decision. If it wasn't for the Texans passing on Bush the draft would've stinx. Now, really how many mouths dropped when 2nd rd card read a safety? How far is he down on depth chart of our team? Now, I know this might turn some heads but I wouldn't brought in Brees but I would've given up our 2nd overall pick to the Falcons for Matt Schaub

RE: Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

I would have gone for Griese and Ramsey myself. AB would have been traded the minute the season was over. Never thought Tommy Boy would go after Bress. So hats off to the FO for throwing the dice.
Bentley would have been restricted and a sign trade deal done if anything, or playing G this year. Bush I have to agree the texans saved us. I think AJ was on the radar though. The second pick well we will see. I like Faine coming over but that to is a ? mark. but passing on Joe Klopfenstein, Daryn Colledge, ect at that spot was a bit crazy much less the talent at 34. We should have traded down again and we would have gotten Harper. Watson and Sully both are like yoy said pee wee moves. Now the real question is Smith. We have Safeties now that can play CB so i do not see the need of trading him. Cockie and brash is a good thing. Drunk and punkie is not and I do not think Smith fits this title. With the WR in camp now I think we have moves open to us but donte is not one to give away. so the real test is yet to come. All the additions on the team appear to be at the least a major upgrade to special teams. So lets see what the no non-sense staff does with all the pee wee moves done.

RE: Sean Payton: Why do you like him so much?

You call them pee wee moves, but Haslett coulda shoulda made those same moves, and didn't. You have to give Payton credit for coming in and brashly do what needed to be done. Is Payton perfect, Probably not. I think he could of done better as well in the draft but as far as taking no prisoners, and a no BS approach, I like what I see thus far. As always, time will tell if Roman Harper was a good pick, and don't forget ... there is still a lot of things that can happen before the season begins. What I think I like the most about Payton, is that i believe he is a True Coach. And what is a coach? a person who can get the MOST out of his players. With the staff he has in place, I think he will make players like Stallworth, and Hilton better. Haslett misused a lot of the talent we had and I do not believe he extracted the most from each individual. Payton is now up to bat, and i think he may hit a home run. Right now there is a runner on 1st and 3rd. Batter UP !

I mainly like the way he has made it clear that this is his team and you are going to play by his rules or you are going to play somwhere else. The team is going to be more focused on winning and playing as a team instead of playing for their own reasons. That alone is enough to make me like him.

(the Swammi) let just say if Haslett was hired as the new coach for this team I think he would've made the same moves of signning fa lbs and trade Sully. The difference he would've felt less committed to them like Payton.

(the Swammi) That is why I will reserve my opinions til I see the results 1st !

I don't really know why I like him but some here know I liked him from the get go, I think he's a leader that will lead the Saints to the next chapter.
