Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

I was kinda wanting a change. It seems like we’re gonna run a knock off version of a Payton led team

Agreed.

Well let's see how this goes I guess, Allen did draft Derek Carr and Kalil Mack.

My hope is that Allen let's Pete C be the primary OC.

Dennis does have his own fire, so will be interesting to see how this goes.

Put on all the armor for the next days while ESPN and national media throws stones at us for our non-diverse choice.

I like Allen but I honestly think he’s one of those guys that are a great coordinator but not head coach material. I hope I’m wrong, I don’t mind eating crow. I sure they’ll keep Carmichael as OC. They’re gonna keep the band together.

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

I personally wanted Doug Pederson but congrats to Dennis Allen.

I'll be curious to see what play calling Carmichael dials up without Sean Payton breathing down his neck.

Hopefully, he promotes Kris Richard to DC.

Re: Saints hire Dennis Allen as Head Coach

Looking forward to this change; hoping Jeff Ireland will get an expanded, weighted influence on the personnel moves...

Kinda hoping Kris Richard gets the nod at DC (Defensive Backs coaches tend to make better DCs), but still keeps his job as DB coach, maybe get another DB asst db coach...

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...
