How in the hell does Doug Marrone still have a job in New Orleans? Black Monday was yesterday! Some progress was made in pass protection along the O line as the year went on but the run game never got any better after a truly abysmal start to the season. Nick Saban fired him after one year and yet he's still here coaching a unit at the bottom of the NFL after two years. I just don't get it!

Its a step in the right direction at least. OC was a major problem all season long.
The ability to hire someone better is where the gray is for me. Who do we have that is capable of that task?

Gayle and Loomis identified Jeff Ireland, Dennis Lauscha, Khai Harley, and Michael Parenton as those who selected Dennis Allen. Should we expect the same quality of a decision for these three spots as they have for HC? Who is left that has the knowledge and understanding to identify the building blocks of our future offense?

According to Loomis, Dennis was selected because of his “leadership skills, teaching skills, and football acumen”. None of which has been on display the last two seasons.

Does Loomie get a piece of the Saints upon Gayle's passing? This rumor may point to his recent decision making.

When Payton left, apparently he took the leadership role with him. At this point I believe that the front office could use some new blood there too to help bring in a fresh perspective.....especially in the draft room!

FYI, former Saints RB coach Joel Thomas was hired by the Giants today.

Re: New Orleans Saints part ways with three assistant coaches

I like that its all the assistants and co-ordinators that have been the issue and not the man in charge of them. I guess football is just like real life, never the top guys fault

Re: New Orleans Saints part ways with three assistant coaches

Texans OC Bobby Slowik (Shanahan coaching tree) - 36 years old
Joe Bleymaier (current KC passing coordinator) - 41 years of old

Go find a young, talented, out of the box thinkers. These guys are helping their respective teams compete in the post season.

Familiar names from yesteryear isn’t good enough in today’s NFL.

When you are dependent upon a staff as deep as in the NFL that staff absolutely has responsibility. In the case of the Saints the top guy gave them their chance to fail. Now it's time to give a new batch the chance to succeed.
