Agree, which is why i keep saying, kick Bill Johnson to the damn curb and don't look back.

How do any of you know which assistant is the problem?

They do the bidding of the DC.

We have no clue who's responsible for what. We just assume.

Payton is under contract. Any team other than the Saints talking to him or his representation would be guilty of tampering.

If Payton really wanted out, I don't think the Saints would have held him. However, as Payton himself pointed out in the press conference, it's unlikely that any team would be willing to put up a Gruden type package (2 1st round picks + $8 million) to get the guy.

We have been through 5 DCs with the same position coaches.... The real question is why are they still around?

But not all assistants have been here the entire time. Bill Johnson for instance, has only been here since 2009.

All I know is I've been here longer than any of 'em.

...

Maybe I'm the problem?

Re: Payton Press Conference at 2 PM CST (UPDATED)

Yes there are issues with the team that need to be worked on going forward, but no matter how you slice it, today's press conference was an epic trolling by Sean Payton, of the haters and doubters and the people who were ready to jump off the bandwagon or throw him under the bus. Look at it this way. I think he basically turned off the light, let the roaches scurry around for a while, then turned it back on and watched them FREEZE in their tracks. Not like he had tons of friends everywhere in the media and sports world already, but now he knows EXACTLY where everyone stands. Including parts of the fan base, if you think about it that way.

Today was EPIC. He talked for an hour, not a single "next question" or blown off answer. He answered EVERY DAMN QUESTION THEY ASKED HIM, even Mike Triplett, and kept going and going. It was freaking beautiful. Like it or not, at least for right now, this moment, he has every single doubter and hater on the ropes, and every single Saints fan with any kind of heart feeling a whole lot better tonight. Like Ice Cube once said, it was a good day. I'm sorry I'm not gonna let any negative Nelly cloud up my sunshine-pumping right now.
