There was a time not long ago when folks around New Orleans Saints camp thought Bill Parcells haunted the building. "Bill this." "Bill that." "Here's how they'd do it in Dallas." Sean Payton seemingly couldn't make a decision without referencing his mentor, Bill Parcells.

The approach was understandable. Payton arrived in New Orleans fresh off, as he would call it, a three-year graduate term in the Big Tuna School of Coaching. Learning at the side of one of the most accomplished and respected coaches in NFL history left an indelible impression on Payton, both as a man and coach.

When he left Dallas for New Orleans, he was a walking encyclopedia of Parcells-isms.

Over time, Payton gradually has emerged from Parcells' considerable shadow. Now in his sixth season in New Orleans, Payton has grown comfortable and confident in his own coaching skin. He has learned that not everything Parcells said or did is the gospel. Sort of like how learning that your father didn't hold the monopoly on worldly wisdom.

I love Sean Payton but he loves him some passing offense.
Titans have no time outs within the 2 minute warning and you throw it on 3rd down?
Tsk tsk...
