Sean Payton, Bill Parcells discuss New Orleans Saints job, sources say - ESPN

Eh the one thing we do know about Parcells is he is good in small doses, not large ones like with the cowboys, he would basically not tinker with the offense or defense, just be the figure head!!

Tuna likes control and the ability to do whatever he wants. Not what we need.
It would be like letting someone borrow your hanky...Nah, you just keep it.
In my mind it's just temporary; like being out on sick leave.
You don't higher someone to cover sick leave, someone else steps up until they are back.
Carmichael or Spagnuola will do fine, that is, unless Payton's out for good,
then it's a whole new ball game.
See I think Tuna comes in knowing that it is an Interim job so he wont try to control it too much. Maybe just as a temporary overseer that shares the same beliefs and leadership style as SP

No! Terrible idea! He doesn't know our system. He butts heads with people. And I don't like him. Miami Dolphins ring a bell?

I think there is still concern that Payton may not have a job at the end of the season. I bet this is him trying to ensure he still has something to come back to.

I know people keep saying no way that SP loses his job over this, but if I am Benson, I want someone steering the ship all the time. And yes I know there is strong leadership in the organization, but there still has to be major concern that day-to-day operations are handled properly.

I guess I am just going to be uneasy until SP is officially back from his year long suspension. Until then, nothing HC-related is going to give me a warm-and-fuzzy feeling.

Another thing is that Zach Strief said things went very well in Payton's absence last year. We went 9-1 after Sean Payton's injury. I'm not suggesting we are better of without Sean Payton, I'm suggesting we do just fine with the coaches THAT WE HAVE. We do not need an egotistical power-hungry coach coming out of nowhere and screwing up everything we've built. No no no!

Carmichael has enough on his plate. Running the offense along with all the additional duties...it's too much. Same goes for Spags. We need someone with a stoic demeanor who commands respect and is a proven leader. And yes, things went well when SP was out but let's not kid ourselves, he was still very much involved in big decesions. Saints needs someone to call those shots just so long as they know they are staying in a rental so no painting the walls or doing any crazy landscaping.

ONLY if PC is calling plays and Tuna is calling timeouts, replays, etc.

Do we really want to drop that much $$$ for a figurehead???

I'm fine with going what we just had. I'm a little reserved on how Parcells influence would handicap our high octane offense... and I'm just not that interested forking out the price tag it would cost.
