Question for the Forum:

During the 'Saints want Parcells' frenzy, the Rooney Rule was brought up.

What minority coaches would you have wanted the Saints to interview/hire?

Before he ran his pie hole, I thought Herm Edwards would have been a decent choice.

The others that I can think of are:

Romeo Carrell(?)- I don't know much about him

Art Shell

Gruden.

no one else really that I think would been able to do it outside of Gruden or Parcells.

You could take a gamble on looking for an OC, who? I dunno.

Exclamation Re: Question for the Forum:

I didn't know Gruden was a candidate for the Rooney Rule!

I guess a lot of others didn't know that either; of course that would explain why he hasn't gotten another coaching job yet!

Re: Question for the Forum:

That would've been tough. I'm not sure who they have internally that they could've seriously considered for head coach.

Herm Edwards would've irritated me for a year but there would've been absolutely no chance he would've been considered for Payton's job after the season.

I respect Crennel a lot but after just hiring Spags I'm afraid they might have undermined each other's authority.

Art Shell already played the figure head puppet for Al Davis for the Raiders so it would've been a role he's used to and maybe after the season the Saints could've used him somewhere in the organization. He knows football so he'd be an asset somewhere.

But in the end, if the Saints would've brought anybody in from the outside besides Parcells, I would've probably ended up resenting them for taking Sean's place.

Probably some bright assistant somwhere. There is no former HC that I'd like to see.

Re: Question for the Forum:

Crennel is coaching the Chiefs...

The Rooney rule is BS; hire who you want to hire...

I think the Rooney rule is dumb and would be offensive to me if I was black.
