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.

    • Yup.  The AFC IMO will be interesting next year. So many teams have made major changes. You can make a case for a lot of teams, even ones like NYJ and Jax could be a lot better. Even Denver, who didn't make a QB move, had a quiet but great draft.    AFCS will likely be Indy and TN fighting for #1, but I think Jax will be fighting for the top spot in the next year or two. We can't even beat them when they're bad, so I'm a little scared lol.   
    • I will take top 15 - that makes us a playoff team IMO, top 10 could very well put us over the top.
    • Aye, but here is the rub. All (anyone that disagrees, show one that doesn't demonstrate this) of the studies show (that racked this data) there is a very noticeable degradation in play for those that return to sport. Some 20 to 25%. Not for a few weeks or a month or two, but the rest of the whole season. Any marked improvement to where they were prior to injury mostly occurs the 'next' season.  I do not expect Fisher to improve very much once (if) he is inserted into the starting line up.  If he is 90% by the playoffs, I'll believe he was 85% or more in his return. It could happen, but I feel by history the odds would differ.  
    • What's wrong with #15? Is it an unlucky #? Just saying and why#1?
    • BINGO!  This staff realized our #1 deficiency and that is our lack of getting to the QB.  We can no longer wait for Turray to become that force and they went out and spent our 1st and 2nd rd picks of the 2021 draft on edge rushers.  If Turray gives us anything in 2021 it will be a bonus and actually give our 2nd rd pick time to recover from injury before he is counted on.  We may have finished 15th but it felt like 32nd with the lack of an aggressive blitz game plan and a true legit pass rusher.  I hope Irsay is correct in stating he has never in his life seen this type of edge rushing talent go back to back but I like the fact this team sees there biggest weakness and addresses it.  If only they saw the weakness at the wr position like I do but if you have a back like Taylor and a top 5 OL, who cares about the qb or wr position.
