We're just a few coaches away from being at the top of the league.

Its too early to start over.

We're just a few players away from being at the top of the league talent wise.

The problem is we have too much talent to be where we are. That's not to say we don't have wholes, however if you compare our roster to others around the league I would say top 10 easily. Payton might not be the issue but he is responsible for the coaches he puts around him, and those coaches are the WORST in the league by a wide margin.

I agree with Danno

Getting rid of Sean isn't the answer at all. You have to look at the parts that are missing and who isn't doing their job. Many areas we need to improve at that getting rid of the one who got us a SB... its like creating a problem for ourselves rather than fixing the other problems.

Why create more problems?

I don't see us getting anyone this off season who could replace him that would make everyone happy.

I still don't see him going, this year. Unless he himself decides he wants to go someplace else and comes up with a deal to do it.

Keep in mind, this is not the first time..... Fletcher Mackel has been doing this ALL YEAR LONG -- he even declared (and I quote) it was the "the end of an era for Saints football" when Brees injured his shoulder, for ONE GAME. Fletcher Mackel was out at the graveyard with his microphone, a lantern and a shovel, ready to bury Brees' career for good.


But I do think people "out there" are getting pretty... testy. If things really fall apart Sunday, or if they are not looking good by the second quarter, I would not be surprised at all if the Boo Birds and Angry Who Dats come out in force after two or three of those patented Saints 3 and outs. If the wheels completely come off in this game and it's a total blowout, I could definitely see that changing the landscape.

Don't see anyone taking Brees salary, so he's not tradeable even if we wanted to. He would have to renegotiate his contract to be traded and if he is willing to do that it makes more sense to keep him.

i would not be surprised at all if sean is fired..he's not producing, and our cap is huge...that doesn't make sense. I think he might get fired

I would not be surprised at all if we beat Carolina tomorrow. I also wouldnt be surprised if we lost out from then on.

Exactly! Except, don't forget we have our last game against the the turd birds. They gonna be out of the playoff picture as well and when we play each other, both teams are going to try to lose. Who will get the better draft pick..lol

Absolutely hate the Flackel brothers; they shout every news report like a local cable commercial for cheap furniture or a traveling flea market...

Really would like to see Payton come back another season just to stick it to the Flackels and that fat @$$ at SI without an original idea...
