Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

I think the Saints kind of have their wings clipped with the worst cap situation in the league and the disastrous contracts to hill, peat, and thomas. Add into that the high expectations created by the last 3 Brees seasons that could not be repeated even if we had Brees back because we cant afford receivers. An amazing rising star coach would likely realize ours is a situation to avoid, and if not, their star would lose its luster drawing up plays for trainwreck smith and adam trashman. We have to rebuild. Our defense can still be ok so the best bet is a defensive coach who can polish their resume on that side of the ball. Allen lacks other opportunities so he is a fine caretaker. If he doesnt work out, I would rather go after the next great coach in a few years without Peat hogging all the wings at the recruitment dinner, hill asking the new coach his name ever 5 minutes and tripping him with crutches, and Thomas having to block another number on his iphone.

Iím thinking nobody really wanted to come here. Seems like it was kind of a ask all the hot chicks to the prom first and if you get turned down go with the chick with a ďgreat personality ď type of situation.

It is the safest bet for the near future. Some stability in an otherwise unstable situation. The revoloving door in the head coach world will offer up many new options next year. Obviously, the admin felt it was the best candidate out of the interviewees.

Sign Marcus Williams. Give DA a stable leader at QB and some damn weapons on offense. Otherwise the HC wonít matter.

The NFCS is wide open at the moment. A lot could change between now and the draft but our time to solidify the franchise beyond SPís legacy is now.

I'm glad they hired Allen, the D has been growing into a formidable unit under him the last couple of years. I hope he gets another DC because I am no fan of head coaches being coordinators and calling plays, they have enough on their plates anyways.


Seems to me like some here forget that we ahev already seen a full season of Carmichael as the OC, back in 2012 when SP was suspended. The season as a whole was trash with the worst defence in leauge history but the O produced with Brees throwing for over 5 000yds. I think we wil be altright there.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

As you stated, fresh/new ideas should be welcomed.

Guess we'll find out.
Allen lets our OC go, that's his 1st mistake. If so Campbell's (Detroit) gonna scoop him up and gonna jump start Detroit. Bad move on Allen good move for Campbell. Do we really have the players in place to run a new O?
