Actually, it worked out perfect. The terribleness that we have come to know as Zorn and Vinny led to the arrival of our current front office and head coach. Not only that, we are on our way to drafting a franchise QB of the highest caliber.

Suffer for two years to get a decent coach/front office? I'll take that deal.

I think they were just about right, the saints organization is a sleeze! Also, there fans used to constantly complain about other teams doing this and tried to act as if they were innocent...

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

Developing story that Sean Payton has approached Bill Parcells about coaching the Saints this year. Woah. Wouldn't that be something.

Wait. Really? Last week some people were speculating that Parcells could easily fit right in and coach them but I didn't know there was anything substantial about that

It ain't so.

Personally I think it would be a good move on the Saints part since they know Payton will be gone the whole year.

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

Just out of curiosity, does the league regulate spending for coaches? I know that Payton is not being paid, but I am sure Parcells won't come cheap for them.

Sean William Scott and the Rock prophesized that the Saints would pick up Parcells in the film The Rundown? I'll have to go watch that movie again...

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

I am amazed that 57% in this poll think the punishment was just right or to light. Would love to see those numbers if it were the Redskins getting these penalties. Suspending the head coach for a full season is like handing out a death sentence to the 2012 Saints. What did the Saints fans do to deserve that?...especially the season ticket holders who had to plunk down their money a couple weeks ago. I don't care if they fine Payton his entire salary but it is not fare to the fans for them to suspend him for a full season.

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

It sure didn't seem to hurt their season ticket sales.

Saints fans not bailing out over bounty fiasco | ProFootballTalk

Imagine if Parcells gets talked into running the ship for a season? I don't think losing Payton is going to hurt them a whole lot in the end. Brees can practically run the offense in his sleep. All they need is a caretaker at HC.

Not to mention Payton's job isn't threatened if Parcells takes the reins for a year. He's 71 years old. He's no long-term threat. But if one of this assistants steps in on an interim basis and the team is still very successful, Benson may think twice about bringing Payton back with all that baggage. Of course I suppose any decision is Benson's anyway.
