Sources: Sean Payton approaches Bill Parcells about coaching Saints in 2012

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I remember someone mentioning John Gruden. Gruden is a control freak as well! We all know, some head coaches, were better off as coordinators, and some coordinators, are better off as head coaches. I don't think it's a good idea ...

I remember someone mentioning John Gruden. Gruden is a control freak as well! We all know, some head coaches, were better off as coordinators, and some coordinators, are better off as head coaches. I don't think it's a good idea to throw Carmichael, who has NEVER been a head coach, in the driver's seat, in the middle of all this controversy. The controversy is the problem right now, whether you want to believe it or not. Parcell's can handle that. All the questions, the press is going to throw at him, over the bounty issues. Parcell's is the perfect choice, for what we are going to have to deal with this upcoming season. I like this idea, and support it fully. Payton comes back in 2013, and we don't skip a beat.

How is this even up to Payton? Doesn't the owner and/or GM choose the head coach?

Here are my thoughts on it.... besides my opinion on just a coach for the year..


I would have not gone public with this at all at this point. Goodell wants to punish the Saints as seen by suspending Payton... If we fill the slot with a SB winning coach would that negate Paytons suspension for the most part and cause him to be heavier handed on the players punishment?

I would have kept quiet and visited Bill, then let Loomis finish the deal after player penalties have been given out.

Conspiracy theory I know... but..

I like the idea. Can you imagine how it would blow all of those haters out there out of the water! I think Parcels would be on the same page as Sean.

I'm all for it.

Best non-player news I've heard in weeks.

Leadership

Let's face the facts...
  1. The Saints organization is in disarray right now, as would any NFL organization having to deal with the loss of a headcoach and GM for all and most of a season.
  2. If Carmichael was the "absolute" replacement for Sean Payton, the Saints would have announced it.
  3. If Carmichael steps up as head coach and is marginally successful, the Saints will lose him next season in the Coaching carousel of the NFL.
  4. Carmichael is the offensive coordinator and since he's never been a head coach, we all know it's going to be hard for him to fill both shoes.
  5. Any possible replacement must be willing to accept a possible temporary situation.
  6. That leaves retired coaches that could help manage the clock and team during games.
  7. Tuna is Sean Payton's mentor and friend, he's retired and knows SP's system because it's based off the system Tuna himself develop.

I'm pretty sure the Saints are in uncharted waters with the full season suspension, but honestly this is probably the best case scenario for the organization. It could possibly open the door for Tuna to take on a VP roll with the Saints if/when Sean Payton returns.
