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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I like this move. Think about it, he's got tons of head coaching experience, and front office experience which could help us while Loomis is out. Ignore my previous post. I think I heard wrong......

Good point, but compensation may cause a delay.

It looks like the "cleanest dirty shirt" to me!
Do you really think that Parcells can stomach a player treating him like the substitute teacher? Talking back and shooting spit balls at him, knowing that his days are numbered? We would just have to see how this pile washes out.

My first thought is, "How old is Parcells? ... would it be like watching Joe Paterno on the sidelines?". I want to see a current Parcell interview, I want to see what kind of shape he's in, I want to see how clairvoyent this guy is.

But, I defer to the logic in Halo's post (#40), which made sense.

HA! funny Neugie!
But seriously, I think before everyone get's all wee wee'd up over the possibility of the legend Parcells coming here, I think you'd have to consider that's asking alot of a 70 yr old man to be a head coach in the NFL. Especially since he's been retired, for what, 5 years?
Tom Coughlin will turn 66 this year (oldest active HC in the NFL) and there was talk about whether or not he was up to another season.
I'm just saying...

The big strike against it, that I keep hearing and reading about is, it would push him back and make Parcells ineligible for the Hall of Fame for another 5 years. He's 71 and from one article I read, he seems to be pretty interested in getting into the Hall of Fame, this would make it a much longer wait for him. No one really knows how he feels, but he seems to have been fairly interested in how he does in the balloting, the last couple of years, and probably wants to be honored while he's still alive. But who knows.

Just say no to Parcells.

Leave the media circus to the NY football jets.

What's next, if Brees doesn't sign, are you going to get Favre?

(I'm JOKING!)
