Why not Sean Payton as Colts coach in 2016?

Recommended Posts


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.

    • Completely uncalled for, he’s lucky the guy didn’t hit his head and die. Happens a lot. Yes It would have been different if the guy he hit was in a fighting stance or swinging, but to sucker punch the guy, especially over a baseball game I presume, is asinine. https://apple.news/AOcSC6A6QQmO9e_4pZ2kUTA
    • Not sure how we can give up 9 runs to the crappy Tigers but we did lol. Cubs lose 9-8 in a game they should've won. The loss wipes out a great day by Matt Duffy who had 5 RBI's and a HR. 
    • Just turned the tv to FS2 and see that a Spring League football game is being played at LOS! Aviators vs Lineman! I had no idea there was even a league like this, especially being played in Indy!? Whatever the TSL is!?
    • lol... I love country, so love all things Nashville (except the Titans).  TN in general is one of favorite states to go along with FL, TX, and AZ (of course IN is in there too lol).
    • Yup, total wildcard. I don't think we carry both on the 53. I first thought Patmon was a no-brainer. The more I dig and the more film I watch, I'm starting to lean towards Strachan. Ballard commented on both. Said Patmon had upside on the outside. Said Strachan wasn't near as raw as one would think coming from a small school.    I'm probably totally reading too much into those comments, but they got me thinking. The bag on Patmon was that he didn't play to his size, and needed to improve a lot on route running. The outside comment seemed a bit limiting to me. Like he still isn't playing physical enough to play on the inside. And the only real bag on Strachan was that he would be raw coming from a small school. He was already physical and not horrible at routes. So thinking he might be a bit more well rounded, and more physical than Patmon. Like I said, likely reading too much into it, but it also goes hand and hand with the film.  It's going to be another close/tough decision for what will be RB3 (I count Hines as an APB). Last year it was Wilkins/Williams, this year Wilkins/Jackson. I like Wilkins as he does well late in games, and is patient with his reads. But I also think a lot of RBs will do well late in games behind our OL. From a money side of things, only 300k more for Wilkins, but Wilkins is in a contract year, and I doubt we'll want to pay him much more after this year. Jackson, if near in talent, might be the more attractive long term choice. At the same time, might just keep Wilkins this last year, stash Jackson on the PS, and then move Jackson up next season. Of course you run the risk of waivers though.
