I hope some of you guys are right, but I think this isn't good for the Saints. Now, either Carmichael or Spags is going to be missing out on time focusing on their job as coordinator. Then after 6 weeks we're stuck with Joe Vitt. As a fan looking at it from the outside, every time I hear Joe Vitt's name it's something negative; 'Bountygate', Vicodin, 4-7 record as interim head coach. Not exactly a guy who has me excited about leading our team.

The Saints are definitely rolling the dice with this decision. They are essentially saying they don't need an authority figure (which is what Parcells would of been) to lead this team. This puts a lot of accountability on the players. Now, more than ever it is extremely important that we get Drew locked up to long term deal.

Well that was 7 years ago, and that Ram team finished 6-10.

Not really relevant to 2012.

Of course it is. It's on his resume.
I'm with Timay:

I thought Vitt was the acting HC while SP was hampered by his injury, and Carmichael was just taking over play calling duties as the main offensive coordinator in SP's absence?

I'd personally be much more comfortable with either Kromer or Spags than Carmichael as the acting HC until Vitt has served his suspension.

The Defense will be fine to Spags and the Offense with Drew
