Peter King: This might be Sean Payton's last season with Saints

Sean Payton is 79-43 as the Saints head coach, bringing the only Super Bowl championship to New Orleans.

But at least one prominent media member is wondering if this season might be Payton's last in The Big Easy.

Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King touched on Payton and the 5-8 Saints during an interview with Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

"That is the single biggest surprise for me, after 14 weeks," King said of the Saints' struggles. "The reason that is such a surprise is because Jimmy Graham is still there, but he's not Jimmy Graham. Drew Brees is still there, but he's not Drew Brees. And the guys on their front seven, Junior Galette, Cam Jordan - these guys are not playing the way they did a year ago.

"You start to wonder - nine years for Sean Payton. Has he run his course in New Orleans? Are they listening to him anymore. Could he start, kind of like his mentor Bill Parcells, to be having kind of a wanderlust, to say hmm, maybe those other jobs out there look a lot better. I just really think the Saints might be one of those teams that are getting old, they are getting cap-strapped, and they are not going to be able to turn it around."

Dallas.

That's the only one I could see.

Otherwise he has 100% support from ownership- two generations, he's well paid, he's indoors 10+ games each year.

Players come and go but jobs like this don't.

Yeah...I don't think anyone would disagree with you. He is here until HE chooses to leave.

Re: Peter King: This might be Sean Payton's last season with Saints

Man, what a quick turn around. Went from Superbowl contender to just a bunch of chumps real soon. I don't get it. This season has been up and down like never before. However I don't think it will be Sean Payton's last season. Another repeat of this disastrous season and it probably will. I stilll think he has quite a bit of wins left in him.

I hope not, I'm still a big Sean Payton supporter. If he leaves it will be a sad day in my household. but if so, they need a defensive minded head coach.

When I see the word "might" in a sportswriter's column, I immediately know its just bizarre speculation aimed at getting site clicks.
Friggin click suckers!

This season will mark the first time in over 3 years that the Cows will not end up 8-8 (.500). Jason Garrett's job is pretty much safe in Death star nation unless the wheels completely fall off (I don't see that happening this season).
