Oh well. I think that it will be a little less of a media circus with no Parcells. I was for him coming aboard but also cautious. Chemistry is everything with this team...even tho he would be a figure head so to speak he has a dominating personality to say the least. How would his personality work with the personality of the Saints most prized possesion, Brees? SP has a strong personality as well but he's also very receptive to Brees input. I don't know if Brees and Parcells really would have meshed well.

This is not good. We need someone to take care of the media, keep the peace b/t coaches, and keep the players in line. Do you guys think Carmichael is ready for all this additional responsibility? It just seems like way too much on one plate. I hope the hunt is still on...

This is probably for the best. I have utmost confidence that Carmichael can get it done. He handled himself very well last year in Paytons absence. Really it's a no brainer. Who else knows the offense and Brees tendency better than Carmichael?

I only was interested in signing Parcells because Payton wanted him.

I'll believe it when I hear it from the Saints officially or someone else is announced. But I think a lot of it on the golf course etc. was exactly what Payton sincerely said it was, to introduce Loomis to Parcells and to talk about what Payton and the team should do next, and also to just sort of throw a handful of dirt from a Palm Beach sandtrap right in the league's face, during the owners' meetings.

I agree that this helps keep us below the radar and focussed. Say no to 'Hard Knocks' also. Let's try to return to normalcy

Difference is that Payton was still at the games, just not on the sidelines.
