The common assumption would be that Brees should take over Payton's role. That assumption is dangerous.

Coaches coach and players play.

Seems like people forget that that WE DO HAVE JOE VITT AND A TON OF OTHER COACHES. All of these coaches will follow Sean's system so we don't have to worry about consistency problems.

Im scared of the time we have to go without Vitt. Not having Payton is bad enough, but not having Vitt is crucial

I'm quite confident that Carmichael, Kromer and Spags can handle it.

Same here. I am not worried in the slightest.

I am pretty sure they going to let Carmichael become interim Coach while Vitt is suspended.

Its really only logical.

To be honest, I think a large part of our whole "diamond in the rough" reputation has as much to do (or more) with coaching than with scouting. I think that the greatest portion of our recent success is the strength of our coaches, not as much the players. Payton gets most of the credit, and he probably deserves it, but from Vitt to Carmicheal to Spags, all the way down to the position coaches, we have strong, independent, intelligent leaders in every position. Payton's loss is unfair and definitely a tragedy for us, but of any team in the league, we are probably the best equipped to lose our coach.

I don't want Kromer to take the lead like some people have suggested. He's doing a great job with the line and I don't want to lose him. My guess is Carmichael will be head coach.
