I'm fine with that. DA needs everyone to play prefect football for his system to work. Actually, he's only had a couple of good seasons since he's been here. In fact, I would lay the blame squarely on his shoulders for not bringing home another Lombardi trophy.

We didn't see Siemian at all last week.

Payton's ready to announce the regular season starter because he already knows who it is going to be.

Owners/GM's will call him in 2022 on interviews for defensive coordinator opportunities.
DL coach and DC are different animals. But you never know. Maybe he thinks he's ready for the jump. Maybe the Saints give him a bump and another title, like assistant DC.

I'd say the jump to being a HC would be more natural for some DL Position Group Coaches than to a Coordinator job...

More wishful thinking than likely what'll happen. Plenty of cut 4th stringers on the street very soon. But he could be a phone call away during the season.

In the right system, I think he'd have a lot of success as DC.

Yep. It sounds as though Payton's mind is already made up.
