Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

Okay, so I went out with friends for the game yesterday to Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar in Houma to help Drew Brees pay for all those children he and his lovely widow have...

Not a real big group, but large enough that there were a couple of friends of friends who were as opinionated about the Saints as I am...

Bothered as there were these ole ornery, crotchety 14/7 offshore oil-patch types who had laid out this diabolical scheme that all this suckage is part of Payton's exit strategy to leave New Orleans for Dallas without compensation to the Saints...

At first I wasn't so poker-faced that they seemed peeved when they shared this to our group...

But as they went on, they really made their theory plausible...

His son is in Dallas...

Dallas Cowboys, America's Team...

Larger market?

Now, Dam*it, I can't get it out of my head; could Payton really want to work for Jerruh and be close to his son?!?

Can't see him going to Dallas until skelator is dead. Miami maybe.

Re: Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

This has nothing to do with Sean.

I don't see him giving up to be fired. But he does need to clean house.

Re: Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

Dallas has always been the team that seems to come up every time Sean coaching elsewhere is talked about. Where there's smoke?
I think the timing will be wrong for Dallas however at this point, or rather, for next season, but who knows.

Re: Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

What makes your friends realistically think that Payton would want to work for Jerry, who took away his control, meddled with his decisions, and ultimately forced Payton to leave Dallas for greener pastures and better opportunities? THere is a HUGE history of those two snubbing each other and digging at each other, but still Payton has to be diplomatic and make nice with Jones, but you can tell there is some rancor there. Sean Payton under Tom Benson has the MOST money (highest paid), the MOST freedom of any coach in the league (no interference from Benson at all), with the least accountability for wins and losses! Why on earth would Payton give that up?

Jerry Jones is 73. Tom Benson is 88. Sean Payton is 51. It is entirely possible in some future scenario, that Payton could end up coaching the Cowboys someday....eventually....but not until quite a few gears turn, wheels creak, and a few things change in terms of ownership and possibly even the courts, for both teams. What is the succession plan for the Cowboys, should Jerry turn out to not be able to live forever, due to cutting-edge advances in medical science? I could see his head in a jar, running the franchise, someday, but the technology is not there yet. Does Jerry have a wife and kids squabbling and fighting over his money after he's gone?

Re: Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

All the talk about Payton leaving, etc. is a carefully calculated effort by Payton's agent to get a contract extension for his client. Think about it....who has the most to gain if Saints find themselves bidding against other suitors?

Skelator is the crypt keeper, dungeon master.....yadi yadi in Big D, can't see Coach P going that route unless he feels he's arm pit deep in a never ceasing sh** storm here. Jerra's the new A. Davis, can't imagine SP doing it.

Re: Fan Paranoia / Master Exit Plan

Those guys are jazzing you for a reaction. I think 2 things are constant:

1) Tom Benson will probably live well into his 90's
2) So long as Tom owns the team, Sean Payton will be his coach.

Only chance SP leaves is if a better opportunity presents itself.
But when you're close with the GM and the financial guy (Lausha), and adored by the organization, it's kinda hard to see SP lured away by money or more control.

Like everyone else said, Jerry Jones is not giving up any control of day to day and personnel decisions so SP to Dallas is a non-starter. If SP went to Dallas and became miserable after a year, it would be his own undoing.

Besides, a flight to Dallas from Nola is barely a 1 hour commute and when you make MILLIONS per year in salary, you could take that round trip three times a week and it wouldn't add up to his monthly home cocktail bar budget.
