New Orleans a bad football town?

From ESPN chat with former saints GM Randy Mueller

David(Sparks, NV): Randy, what're the chances the Saints pick up Romeo Crennel or Charlie Weis as their head coach in the offseason?

Randy Mueller: (3:41 PM ET ) It may be hard to talk a coach with "options" into coming to New Orleans...good football people have not faired well there...but one never knows...

I am interested what you guys think about this. It sounds like the NO is a bad football town. Also, this is very dishearting. Does this mean we will get a bad coach, or if we get a good coach he won't do well?

I think this has more to do with his feelings towards Tom Benson than New orleans as a football town. And he could be right.

No, I don\'t think it\'s limited to just football. Just ask the \'Utah\' Jazz what it took to get to the championship.

Much as I love NO, I have to wonder if it really is cursed with respect to bigtime sports. Thank God the Tigers are in Baton Rouge.

Any truth to the whole \"mafia\" running the Saints rumor?? It\'s been whispered for years. Even heard Bobby Hebert was threatened when he was around.

Yeah, you guys are right, just another crazed cast off that knows nothing about football - this guy must be as looney as Kyle Turley! No, in reality the Saints have a great owner and front office, that\'s why they are 27th in the league in income with one of the most loyal fan bases in the league despite having, what 2 winning seasons and 1 trip to the playoffs in a decade.

How about, instead of considering the SOURCE you look at what he said? Is he wrong? Haslett was a sought after coach that was being thrown other offers left and right? How about Ditka? Mora made a name for himself in a defunct league... Stram might be the biggest name to have ever been here. He\'s probably right...

What is the incentive to go to NO to coach football? I think there may be some sour grapes however I can\'t see the lure. Why pick Florida over ND? The recent history has shown their is a chance to have a good program at Florida.

I basically agree with this. If Loois is going to survive this year, why would a coach want to come here and work under a guy that doesn\'t know a lot about football, isn\'t going to give you a lot of input and then savage you in the press if things don\'t go well?

New Orleans is a great sports town with great fans--look at all the sellouts for mediocre teams under Haslett.

It sounds like Randy is questioning the organization, which people have been doing since Finks died.
