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.
Fans forget Bill Belichick was 37-45 in Cleveland.

How do you know for certain?

What if there's someone in mind already?

What if there's plans for a special QB coming in 2022 along with a new OC?

What if Carmichael stays on with more oversight?

We just don't know enough yet to dismiss any possibility as a bad move.

Good for Allen. He's earned it.

I, for one, am glad that it's likely he won't be scattered and can focus on coaching as opposed to making personnel decisions as well.

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

Maybe we find a one year stop gap like Bridgewater or Mariota and draft one. We definitely need to draft one.

This is going to be unpopular but it might be favorable to move on from Kamara's contract. Solid rb talent available and gives us a more money to work with to rebuild that offense.

I had Bienemy on the top of my list, then Leftwich, and then Allen. Flores would really be at the top of my list if not for the lawsuit. Its just too much of a distraction right now. I have a lot of concerns now, but we gone see how it all shakes out.

Bienemy's contract is up in KC. Maybe we were trying to sell him on the OC job as well. Rumor has it Carmichael will be promoted to assistant Head coach and not OC.

Id be very surprised if Eric is even remotely interested in a lateral move.

And with no QB in place for New Orleans.

Perhaps that QB is in place but we don't know it yet publicly. Bieniemy may be interested in working with Jameis. Or at least maybe they were trying to sell him on the notion. And Mrs. B does have deep pockets. And New Orleans is his home.

No telling, but it would be a coup to get him in that capacity.
