Its hilarious what the media will print, and the asinine connections they make up, just to keep the Saints story in the limelight.

My thoughts are that we should have went outside and got a man in here even if most dont agree with me. We needed a stable base all year and not bounce back and forth. There needs to be a man in charge no questions asked I think this was a bad decision and will hurt more than the punishments themseves. I so much want to see the team succeed this year after what has happened and this wont help the cause at all. Maybe they will have a change of heart down the road.

I like the decision of promoting Vitt for the year. Stability is the key here and losing Vitt for the first 6 games doesn't really matter because it's all still "Payton's system" and all the coaches have been here since '06 save for Spagnuolo.

Bringing in Parcells or anyone else and they would want to do it "their" way...

The downside to an outsider is just that. He's an outsider than everyone knows will be gone at season's end. I don't know how that commands the type of authority necessary to keep players in line.

An insider will be here at seasons end, and I think the players know and respect Vitt, Kromer, and Carmichael enough to stay focused on their responsibilities.

If Harbaugh can take over a program with all new coaches, a new system, without an off-season to install it all, and make it to the NFC Championship game then this team can surely go all the way without question.

I agree with Danno plus I think Benson is sending a message to the league and media ... "WE ARE WHO DAT FAMILY" ... We will stand behind our coaches and players and we will move on ... like it don't like it is our business! We have more continuity by responding from within the system and coaching cadre that has been in place since 2006 that bring in anybody to include Parcell's.

Every person has a right to express an opinion.

We all have the right to mercilessly deride that opinion.

Sadly, this person's opinion is hardly worth the effort, it is so poorly devised and constructed.

Maybe he's sending a signal to his employer that his ability to think abstractly is defunct?

Has anyone considered the possibility that an outsider would add more confusion and command less respect with everyone knowing that his tenure would be limited and subject to the "what would Payton do?" second guessing?

An outsider would be in a unique and guaranteed position to fail. Who wants that? Obviously, our mentally compromised author.

I love this kind of stuff. These idiots are doing more to motivate the team than any bounty ever could.

Like others have said how is bringing some one who doesn't know our players or coaches or just how things are done going to provide stability?
