Hopefully, he promotes Kris Richard to DC.
Plus one. Carmichael on his own as OC is gonna be one of the big storylines for sure...

This increases the likelihood that Winston returns IMO.

I like DA for continuity, but I would have liked Flores to spit in Rog's eye (and I think he would have done well)

Have a lot of reservations about Bieniemy, would like to have seen him successful in more than just one place that didn't have Andy Reid, Pat Mahomes...

Have had a lot of respect for Flores, but didn't want the lawsuit distraction being brought on with a new coach; looking forward to seeing if he can make his case...

Doug Pederson would have made an interesting hire, plus he has Louisiana roots...

This move/hire reminds me of when the 49ers had Bill Walsh retire and George Seifert stepped in - they kept winning, including another SuperBowl...


They gotta keep Kris Richard. The guy essentially turned our secondary into the legion of boom 2.0 and what he did with PJ was nothing short of a miracle.

Paulson Adebo as well. Definitely, KR fingerprints all over that secondary.

No doubt, K. I thought Glenn was our best secondary coach in the Payton era til Richard showed up.

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

Who didn’t see that coming? My biggest fear is that they’ll just try to stay true to what Sean Payton did and be afraid to shake things up. Will Dennis Allen be able to establish his own identity?

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

Payton handed him the keys to the kingdom as the DC, Payton leaves and gives him the thrown. I really believe Payton set this up. Not an Allen fan. 9-7 to 8-8 this season. Hope he proves me wrong.

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

I'm ok with Allen I guess. I didn't want Pederson and think he's overrated garbage.
