These guys never quit

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I just realized that I'm insane by definition. I keep reading these articles thinking maybe there will be a different result. A head coach always hires his own staff. And since Payton has not been fired and has been told ...

I just realized that I'm insane by definition. I keep reading these articles thinking maybe there will be a different result.

A head coach always hires his own staff. And since Payton has not been fired and has been told he will be back next year, he SHOULD be involved in the decision as to who is the interim coach. Benson is an owner, few owners really know much about the game, they just know how to make profit from it. Why should we suddenly expect him to become an executive?

Get over yourself, Len.

People just need to chill out and read WHERE these articles are coming from. Most of them are coming from the same writers/networks who have an axe to grind. CBS has been really negative in their coverage of this mess, I'd say the worst of the three major networks. That's because the SAINTS are one of the top television network draws, in all of sports, and they "belong" to FOX, a competing network! CBS are targeting the Saints with negative coverage, because the Saints are a "property" of their rival network, and they sense they are vulnerable right now. It's the same thing as the Giants targeting the player on the 49ers who had a history of concussions, you target the enemy's weakness, except this is in the network ratings game, instead of on the football field. What CBS wants to accomplish with all this negative coverage, is for people in the "flyover" states or regional markets who don't have a team of their own, to be turned off by the "dirty Saints," and have them switch channels and watch an AFC game instead of watching the Saints on Sunday afternoon. That's what they are trying to do with all these negative articles and attacking Benson, Payton etc.

Everyone needs to take a chill pill before reading any of these articles. Heck, swig a half a bottle of them! It's going to take a thick skin to be a Saints fan from now on. Don't let this stuff bug you. It's mostly just about the ratings and trying to attack the hot property of the competitors' network when it's down.

Perhaps Benson's decisions are based on his feelings that holding a Lombardi high in the air makes a few mistakes take a back seat to winning. Just keep it classy from here on.......like we always have!(barring some alleged bounty stuff)
