Fletcher Mackel: Dear Saints fans, Enjoy Sean Payton's final 5 games in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS —While many are sick of reading about the post-Hurricane Katrina love story between a wounded but great American city and its rebuilding NFL team, for those of us proud to call New Orleans home, romanticizing the connection between Sean Payton's Saints and the Crescent City is something we'll always find relevant....


Payton has been linked to potential NFL openings in Indianapolis, Philadelphia, New York (Giants) and San Francisco. I'm of the belief that if San Diego fires Mike McCoy, Payton would jump at the Chargers job -- especially if San Diego relocates to Los Angeles.

Heck, Peter King, of NBC Sports, even suggested last year Payton may have wanderlust, and may want a new challenge. Payton quickly denied King's report, calling it silly.

When reports of Payton coaching somewhere else in 2016 first surfaced this season I thought they probably originated from his camp.

I believed his agent (or a close confidant) was the person leaking the details to the media to make Payton, remains a hot name.

But more and more I'm thinking the Payton rumors are coming from Airline Drive.

I'm thinking Saints owner Tom Benson and his top lieutenants, Dennis Lauscha and Mickey Loomis, look at Payton as no longer being cost effective.

Payton is the highest paid head coach in the league, but unless the Black and Gold makes a miracle run, they'll finish with a losing record for the second consecutive season and that's not good enough.

It's happening folks. You guys seem to think it's impossible but look at Payton on Sunday's and tell me he gives a crap about his current job anymore.

Lets play Grayson the last 5 games to give him some experience.
I'm sick of Payton, Loomis and the big mess this team is in. I don't know if Brees will stay or not & what kind of coach we will get. It feels like we are done for few years. The Panthers will win the NFC South for the 3rd straight year, something we didn't achieve in the last 10 years.

"making sure Payton remains a hot name" That's FUNNY

Uh huh! Right!! The highest paid coach in the NFL needs publicity to keep him in spotlight!

I'm starting to think Dennis Allen was brought in to be our next head coach. I think Payton knew he would be leaving soon so he brought in Allen in some vague assistant position to hand him the keys and start the transition.
