Why not Sean Payton as Colts coach in 2016?


Recommended Posts

Lol

Bad coach. Yeah ok. Cause bad coaches win Super Bowls and turn around an historically awful franchise to a yearly contender.

I mean, even Jim Caldwell had a SB appearance

And yes, Payton has a SB.... but let's not act like the colts didn't hand it to him. Hank Baskett anyone?

He hasn't done anything since the SB. They can't even win one if the worst divisions in football

 

Payton hasn't done anything since the Super Bowl because the Saints have been in Cap HELL for years.    They've given away a lot of talent,  or haven't you noticed things like trading Darren Spriles and Jimmy Graham among others.

 

It's Cap Mismanagement and not Sean Payton that has been the Saints problem.

 

And I'm sure our resident Saints expert will be along to explain why I'm wrong and what's wrong with the Saints in 3.... 2..... 1....

 

Cue the man!!!

He has lost all momentum in NO after dealing away most of his offensive weapons and the suspension, and Drew Brees in his the last few years of his career, and he recently went to a Super Bowl and beat guess who? 

 

Doesn't seem like a stretch or a bad fit IMO.

 

I would be excited. They have a pretty solid run game going in NO.

My biggest problem with Pagano is; He isn't particularly good making in game adjustments.  Average as a head coach imo.  If we do replace him lets bring in someone who is well established.  

 

Well established, unemployed, NFL head coaches aren't the easiest thing to come by. It pretty much doesn't exist. Sure, Cowher's out there, as is Gruden, but neither has coached in years, and both seem to really like their nice cushy TV jobs. When/if Pagano goes, I'm about 75% certain Chudzinski takes over for him.

    • Comp picks will be key next year because if all goes well, that conditional 2nd we gave for Carson will be a late 1st, meaning we’ll be picking low again. Would be nice to have extra picks to maneuver up and down the draft board as needed.
    • I did see the issue with the Broncos. So they have already said they will not pay his 20million? That is a bad stance to have for future FA’s for sure. Players can turn away from select and leave them as a lame duck. The NFL is a smart business but this might blow up in their face. Players will quit doing anything on their own and outside of a mandatory camp or practice these guys won’t be in great shape. That’s the NFL’s fault if this gets any worse. Learn to structure contracts better is what I would tell the NFLPA. 
    • Once we sign Leonard, Smith, and Nelson to long-term contracts am projecting next year the Colts will have limited cap space to sign our own free agents again next off-season such as Hilton, Rhodes, and Pascal to name a few.     Conley is a low risk/high reward player that we should be able to get cheap now for at least 2 years not expecting much this season but in hopes he returns fully healthy on a end of year 2 prove-it deal taking over for Rhodes without breaking the Colt's cap space bank initially but will have more financial leverage in three years.   Thoughts?
    • Once we start resigning players next off-season we won't have much free cap space available to target FAs let alone feel comfortable signing rest of our own.   Right now my early estimates are    LB Leonard 5/100m 60m guaranteed - 5 years $82.5 million 40m   guaranteed  RT Smith 4/58m 30m guaranteed LG Quenton Nelson 6yr/100m  TE Mo Allie-Cox 3yr/33m DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 2yr/4m RB Marlon Mack 2yr/10m (5m APY) if remains  healthy RB Nyheim Hines 3yr/19.5m (6.5m APY) Similar to A. Eckler RG Glowinski 2yr/18m   With around 10m in cap space left over for 2022   So don't expect us to resign Hilton, Rhodes, or Pascal etc.  Wouldn't mind having O'Neill as our future LT but in all reality can't see it happening.
    • Right man. I get that. How many of these teams though are gonna pitch him RT money? Villanueva just got RT money and is all butthurt about it now. Not that I don't blame him but he's talking smack about the wrong people.
