I can easily see why. If you have a guy that you have a great relationship to and work well with a clause ike that would kinda add pressure on management to keep that guy, or fire you both, a double edged sword.

I have no problem on the other hand seeing why the NFL specifically the owners wouldn't approve on this. They wanna be the ones deciding who to keep and who to let go on the management level of the teams.

I saw this exact comment below that article on espn... It was YOU!

Re: Payton signs a 5 year contract extension

From Peter Kings twitter:

"Confident of Payton tells me, "When he goes back, he's going to coach the team like it's his first year." Fresh new sheriff in town."

To me that sounds exciting, I believe that would mean loads of passion, enthusiasm and a house cleaning. Killing your darlings...

Indeed... You ever notice how the expression on Mike Smith's face looks like he has diarrhea? Every time they show him on the sidelines. Perpetual diarrhea.

I like the sound of that

Sounds to me like it will add more focus, make them play with more passion and clean up all the mistakes we made this year

Re: Payton signs a 5 year contract extension

More words from the national media, more specifically Pete Prisco:

Payton returning to Saints, but is he a changed man?

I thought all along Sean Payton would never leave the New Orleans Saints.

That team is his baby.

And he has work to do to fix it. Payton is a competitor, a feisty one at that. He loves a challenge. And now he's facing one in trying to show the Saints can get back to their winning ways since he has reportedly agreed in principle to stay on as head coach.

A loophole in his contract gave him a chance to move on to another team, but he's staying in the Big Easy. There was talk he might go to the Cowboys, but the Cowboys aren't expected to make a change. I never thought he'd go, anyway.

Payton can now show people just how valuable he is to the team. If the Saints win, it's all about him since he missed the 2012 season serving a suspension for his alleged role in the Bountygate scandal and the team has floundered.


Oh, and he also has Drew Brees. How many places can he go where the quarterback is that good?

Payton's year away will probably be good for him. He needed to be taken down a notch. The arrogance factor grew when he won the Super Bowl. Opposing coaches and front-office executives all noticed the change in him. So did many in the media.

I did, too.

I have always been a Sean Payton backer on the football field. There is no better play-caller in the game. His arrogance shows on the football field, but that's where it's needed. He isn't afraid to take chances.

To me, he's innovative, creative, can adjust on the fly and isn't afraid if something fails. That's what makes him a great coach.

But that game-day arrogance is also what led to his suspension. You have to abide by the rules. Nobody is bigger than the game. And when the arrogance carries over away from the field, that's a problem. And trouble comes with it. You think you are invincible, and as the Saints found out, nobody is bigger than the NFL shield.

Payton is a smart guy. I'll bet he's also a changed man. Spending time away from the madness of the NFL probably ate at him in a big way, especially seeing his team stink it up, but it was probably also humbling. I hope it was.

The NFL isn't the same without Payton. He brings a swagger to the game, which I love. He brings offensive wizardry to the sideline, which I admire.

Not having Payton in New Orleans just wouldn't have seemed right. He is the puppeteer that makes Brees go. He is the checks and balances to the greatness that is Brees.

I joked this season that Brees was the interim coach of the Saints. Watching practice in the preseason, it sure looked that way. Who would tell him no? Aaron Kromer? Joe Vitt? Not a chance.

But Payton can and will.

I always thought Payton's ego would keep him on the sideline in New Orleans. That hunch, coupled with a fat, new contract to help make it possible, has now played out.

Here's hoping the Sean Payton who once seemed humble to even be calling plays as a coordinator a half-decade ago will be back running the team.

I'm all for having a swagger, but you can't be dumb about the way you use it.

Payton let his get the best of him, but he's back now and can show that madness is all behind him.

Re: Payton signs a 5 year contract extension

I am ECSTATIC about this. I had no doubts but I did have fears that Jerry Jones might just woo him over to the Dark Side but this is a very, very happy day for me.

So let's do the math for the 2013 season: a lot of defensive people walk for cap space reasons allowing a newer, better scheme to be built ground-up by Spags. At the same time, Payton and Brees come back with all their weapons and a ton of "chip on their shoulder" pushing them to destroy everyone in their path a la Patriots 2007 post Spygate. Oh, I can't wait. Ready for more 62-3 games? I sure as hell am! How cool would it be if they pull off an 18-0 season going into next year's SB? Can't wait.
