Question for the Forum

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What if instead of Jim Mora the Saints had Sean Payton, with the same Saints players, division opponents, players, rules, etc? IMO the Saints would have dominated the division instead of the 40-whiners!...

But we would have missed out on his infamous rants.

Re: Question for the Forum

Someone of Payton's personality, demeanor vs Benson...

With Jim Finks building the team?!?

Problem was still Tom Benson wouldn't have spent the money on a quarterback...

You've still got lot of loose variables still to address...

But the biggest difference between Mora and Payton...

Mora played not to lose...

Payton played to win the game...

Mora never had an offense. Maybe Payton would have fixed that but I don't know...

Mora had an effective offense; Mora didn't trust his offense.

Hebert was certainly not on the level of Brees, but I believe that the Saints could have won a Super Bowl with him.

Re: Question for the Forum

At the time I wasn't all that crazy about Mora, but I honestly believe the results would have been the same had Payton been coaching the team. The 49ers were several notches better than the Saints. There was something big missing from those Saints teams, which could explain how they could do so well in the regular season to only tank in the playoffs. It's really difficult to say what was missing, it would be easy to point the finger at Hebert, but cannot really say for sure if Hebert was a liability or was it the conservative style of offense that was being used. With that said, Hebert really did suck during playoff games.

Re: Question for the Forum

The real question is what could Payton have done with Archie.
