If we miss the playoffs this year is Payton on the hot seat?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What do you think? I think you have to say so. Im not saying fire him after next season, but all eyes will be on him. Just a question to pass the time in this brutal offseason....

Yes definitely if he isnt fired. Too much opportunities squandered.

I don't think Payton is gonna be here a whole lot longer anyways... His job won't be in jeopardy because I think it's understood that as Drew's career winds down so will Payton's tenure here.

saints offense still one of the nfl most productive? answer yes and i have to say the seat is warm but not hot

Saints defense remains a hug whole? then i see a shake up coaching wide and SP buddies are on the hot seat.

Re: If we miss the playoffs this year is Payton on the hot seat?

I'd have to say yes. I know SP has been the best coach we've ever had, but his stubbornness is killing this team. Hanging on to ineffective coaches year after year. Repeated drafting blunders as well as losses of good players like Ninkovich, Nicks and others have put this team in serious jeopardy. Now after YEARS of completely ridiculous play from Patrick Robinson we're negotiating with this guy?? Inconceivable to say the least. The inability to hire a scouting staff that can pick obviously better talent than what we've done? All of this is a recipe for disaster which is what this team was last year. Not going after Vic Fangio and his counterpart was just plain stupid. They have produced better defenses than ours forever and we keep Ryan. Granted, I like Ryan but one year wonders like Gregg Williams and Ryan are a dime a dozen. To me, this team isn't trying to get to another championship. It's so obvious. Maybe it's due to the Benson squabble and they don't want a winning team if things don't go Benson's way. Your guess is as good as mine, but it is mindboggling some of the things this coaching staff and scouting dept. have done and are still doing.

It would take a complete meltdown before Payton is fired, but I do believe Payton walks within a couple of years. During the 2014 season, to me he looked like stress and burnout was setting in.

Most coaches have a short life with most teams anyway. Payton has made mistakes along the way but has also seen the wonderland with him here. I would believe if we fall short of making the playoffs he's done in N.O. He is and has been good here. If he does go and Brees still has 1 year left on his contract with his age I would trade Brees for picks and start to rebuild. Personally at Brees age I would trade him after this season anyway win or lose.

I don't think so. We have it pretty good even with last years debacle of a season.

After decades of horrible teams and terrible coaches, we have a good coach who has had two losing seasons since he got here and a Superbowl victory. I don't get why anyone would want him to leave.
