Hire them both... The Redskins released Gregg Williams and Al Saunders.

β€œI want to thank Gregg and Al for all they did for the team,” team owner Daniel M. Snyder said. β€œIn particular, during our most difficult time last year, they both helped hold the team together as we kept moving forward. I am confident they will continue to be successful in the years ahead.”

Payton will NEVER fire Gibbs.

They are a package. Just like Haz and Venturi were a package.

Re: greg williams skins dc let go

Beat me to the punch, Supes. I was talking to my brother who informed me of the firing. He asks the question:

Are the Saints serious about winning a championship?
Williams has an outstanding defensive philosophy. Would the Saints be willing to pull the trigger on Gibbs?

Sadly I too have to agree with CB. We're in another situation where the organization isn't willing to do what it takes to win a championship, which in this instance is upgrading the coaching staff.

Sigh.

Re: greg williams skins dc let go

Letting Gibbs go and hiring Williams falls under the "too good to be true" category for this franchise. The saints would never do something that makes so much sense.

Not only that, but hiring Williams would probably help us lure in some defensive FAs, Im sure there are plenty in the league that would want to play under his scheme.

Ya got to cut your losses. Fire Gibbs and hire Williams plain and simple he the best out there. Gibbs is not. You play the best players hire the best coaches.

Hire Al also.

If we were reading this about another team, I'd be laughing at their fan base for loving a team that doesn't make moves that helps them win consistently.

It's 45 steps beyond Pathetic that this happens with team that we love ALL THE TIME!!!!!

The obvious improvments are NEVER made.

I love the saints more than anything and want them to succeed, but at the same time I'm a realist. It may be sad, it may be pathetic, but a lot of us here all live and die for the black and gold, no matter how bad those guys perform. I just know better than to get my hopes up.

Like most of you, I too live and die for the black and gold.
I like all of you, spend $1,000's of dollars on this team every year.
I no longer get my hopes up. I do get MADD at the reality of the situation though.
