Denver Will Be Paytonís Next Job

The trade by Denver today was nothing more than getting a first for next year to use as bait to get SP to Denver. With Dallas performing so well Under McCarthy this year I would suspect that Denver and The Chargers would be the most likely candidates for his services. Both have franchise qbís for SP and he would be in the AFC and away from the NFC. New ownership in Denver wants there own guy and what a better way to make a splash with one of the most successful coaches available. Give me your 2023 and 2024 first rounds and we have a deal.

Wilson is not the Wilson of old.

Re: Denver Will Be Paytonís Next Job

They could make a play but the Denver situation is questionable with Wilson maybe being washed and costing a fortune for years.

I think that other teams could look for a new head coach too. There is still half a season to play.

What if the Bills struggle a bit down the stretch and Choke in the playoffs? They have had the same coach since 2017 and they keep getting 'almost there.' An early flop in the playoffs could tempt management to change out the coach to a proven Super Bowl winner while they still have the players to win.

What about Cincy? They got to the Super Bowl last year but lost. Their coach was inexperienced. If they regress this year and have a losing record, you never know.

In KC, Andy Reid is not a young man nor a Peoples Health Champion. Maybe he decides to retire or has a medical issue and KC would rather pursue a proven offensive wizard than follow the Todd Bowles model of handing the keys to the Ferrari to some unproven assistant who waited his turn.

Pete Carrol is not a spring chicken either. If he were to retire, Seattle might feel a proven commodity would do better following in his footsteps than an unproven one.

Same for Bill Belichick. At some point he is going to retire. Brady will probably retire and Bill is struggling this year. A proven commodity would find it easier to follow in his footsteps and there is no clear heir apparent in New England. Bill might take some senior management role with the team and might suggest Sean as a successor.

Houston is not winning football games and has a lot of draft picks to select a franchise QB I believe.

Indianapolis job could be open. They have more picks than Denver probably and less cap hell. Not a great job, but maybe Ryan is no more washed than Wilson, and either would have to rebuild.

Panthers would be a trade option for me. Rich owner. I don't care if he goes in our division if we get 2 1st round picks. No coach in the history of NFL football has ever won a superbowl with 1 team and gone on to win against with another. Lombardi didn't. Ditka sure didnt. Parcells didnt. Gruden didnt. Holmgren didnt. I would not rule out trading Payton within the division out of fear of something that has never happened before. The goal is Super Bowls not division only, you have to beat everyone to win a Superbowl, so only the team that does win really stopped you if you dont, and like I said thats never happened for one coach with two teams.

Dallas could still be in play if they choke in the 1st round of the playoffs. Jerry Jones ain't young. He ain't patient. Winning in the regular season is great but so what.

Sean McVay could pull a Barry Sanders and retire, there has been talk that he does not want to coach forever, and Los Angeles could say F them zeros and F them picks and write Payton a big check. Not sure if they have any picks to F though.

Aaron Rodgers could get in argument with with Matt LeFleur about something and demand a new coach or he retires, or drive LeFleur to ask for his release. The Packers are losing. Rodgers is a head case. He could decide he want Sean and visa versa. There is talk of Rodgers possible retiring so a power play would be the next best thing.

Arizona's coach is on thin ice and they have a talented short athletic qb who is not being used efficiently.

Detroit is losing and could have the #1 overall pick for a franchise QB. They are loaded at WR and RB to set up said franchise QB for success. They have a Payton protťgť failing as head coach. Might be time to spring for the real thing.

It just depends how all these teams finish the season and which Sean will consider and which will write the check and trade the picks. Or maybe Sean will decide he likes being retired or wants to do more broadcasting, or that he will only go to the Chargers who are only offering a 2nd round pick and we have to call their bluff or fold.

Re: Denver Will Be Paytonís Next Job

I like your style, but Sean Payton will be the coach of the Carolina Panthers! They will sell their souls to get him! After trading McCaffery for all those picks! We will need a top 3 pick next year to get a franchise QB and if the draft were held today the Lions would draft first, followed by the Texans, then the Panthers! All need QBís! It just makes sense for the organization and Payton! Payton knows our coaches, front office and most of the players! He could beat us for 2 or 3 years until we figured him out!

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

It's hard to say right now. Denver does have the deepest pockets with the WalMart owners. But there's going to be a lot of teams simping for CSP.

Chargers would definitely be a better situation with Herbert, no question. But regardless of what happens in Denver from here out I think there Coach is gone and ownership wants to bring in there own guy. SP is a franchise maker

Because he doesnít need to. Heís enjoying the studio life and getting paid well. Heís got the new wife. He flirted with Miami because nits nice and warm. Just my thought of course but when heís got the options to go where he wants, why would he go to a cold weather spot? If you had millions and you were given the choice to live in San Diego or Arizona vs Green Bay or Buffalo why would you choose the cold? I live here in Mass cold weather. It sucks. His wife wonít want to move into the cold.

Just my opinion of course.
