Gruden is quite comfortable in that MNF booth making 6.5M a year . He ain't coming back to coach no team anytime soon.

Re: If we dont get Payton back...

I guess I'll ask the dumb question:

Are contracts meaningless?

Sean Payton is under contract. He cannot leave the Saints and coach anywhere else unless he is released from that contract. He can walk away from that contract. But he cannot coach anywhere else without the Saints releasing him.

BTW Payton already has a clause in his current contract that gives him the option to walk if there is a change in ownership.

I would be completely comfortable with Tom. Completely. But I hope Sean stays.

Re: If we dont get Payton back...

There are only a couple of guys I think are as good or better than Payton as a HC and none are close to him offensively. Brees are Carmichael could retain some semblance of our offense but that is a 2-3 year plan at best. IF Sean left I want someone who could leave the offense alone for a couple years and focus on everything else, so likely a defensive minded guy.

If and when Payton does leave I would hope it is around the same time John Harbaugh is looking for a change of scenery.

They're meaningless in the NFL

Nope. Main reason, do you want to force your head coach to stay if he don't want to and expect him to do a good job? So if there are 6 teams trying to get him, you put up a price tag for that and get the most you can.

Sean will end his career here. Name one coach who's better the coach Payton.
