FOX considers hiring Sean Payton

You can't stop a man from making his nut. If you suspend him doesn't mean he can't work doing something else while he is serving his suspension... morons.

Now if he was suspended with pay that would be different because he would be making money as HC and serving a suspension.

I doubt he would be broadcasting Saints games. That would be too close to coaching the team which takes him into termination territory. He could work the AFC games. This would keep him as far away as he can get from the Saints but still be involved in football.

I seriously doubt he'd be coming in to broadcasting games but just as an analyst for the nation shows before games, half time, and at the end of games.

If I was Sean, I would sit my ass at home and spend quality time with family and study up on all the NFL teams... use my time wisely.

Someone send this man the game tapes to his house in Dallas

I like it if he should chose to do this. I am surprised NFL has no objections to this.

Just do it and get paid for it. He can slander the NFL like all other analysts and bust their chops daily. I like this idea.

I don't know how I feel about him being a commentator for Fox national, but I said this to my friends the moment the suspension came down... right off the bat, I immediately thought that Sean should take his little weekly "Sean Payton Show" he used to do on the local Fox 8 channel in New Orleans each week, he could expand it to an hour mega-show or more, or more than one night, and turn it into a really hardcore film breakdown and chalkboard session, exactly like a team meeting -- slide show, motivational speech, game film, calling players out, pumping them up, and scouting the next weeks' opponent, laying out all their weaknesses and tendencies, that the players could tune in and watch at home... have Sean look at game film, of the other team, and get with the clicker, and say stuff like, "see how that safety is cheating up here, we want to look for Jimmy Graham the slot right there, when they go to this formation, I think Pierre would have a good shot if Drew audibles to a run, if we see this particular defense we want Drew to check out and run 40 green left" and really detailed stuff like that. He could also rag on the refs, and embarrass the league, by reviewing the previous Saints game film in detail from the week before -- "notice how this holding right here on the other team wasn't called, this should have been a flag but wasn't called" and things like that. The little kid in me thinks it would be awesome to see him set up the game plan each week on TV, and just rip the NFL a new one every week, showing all the blown calls and missed penalties, and there was nothing they could do.

And it would be accessible for all to see, just like the regular team meetings.

I might be in the minority here, but I think he should take the year off or do some assistant or consulting work in the college ranks.

Working for FOX might draw the ire of the league (again) and it might cause a bit of a rift with the team, or Benson or Loomis, if the coach is joining big brother. If it is what Sean wants to do then I think he would do well - I just prefer it is like 15+ years down the road when he's retired from coaching.

IMO he should scout the college ranks for undiscovered talent to bring in when he finishes his suspension. That along with studying the competition down to the minute details. It would be nice to see him on FOX as a part time addition to the sunday pregame show.
