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.

    • I don't think Ertz at this stage of his career is a big upgrade of our group. 
    • Yeah...Wentz would have to be hurt to not be playing. How could you spin benching Wentz to save your 1st round pick...not only to your fans but the locker room as well? Not only does it show that you made a big mistake, but it also shows you care more about draft picks than a vet QB...or about putting the team in the best position to win.    The optics on that are terrible. And if they wouldn't bench JB in the back half of the 2019 season...they aren't benching a more accomplished QB...especially for a guy like Eason or Ehlinger.   I think the only way they move on from him would be some type of unfortunate bad injury (which hopefully doesn't happen). 
    • I'd love to have Ertz, and I think Reich & Ballard would too.  I just think some other team (Cardinals, Bills, Titans?) is going to want him more. 
    • I was thinking that earlier too but i bet he is one of those guys that drops weight immediately upon retirement.  I think i read him saying he ate something ridiculous like 6000 calories a day and it was work to eat like that.
    • I think those are numbers from the sportsbooks. W/L totals are typically conservative on the high end and the low end. Very hard to predict an NFL team winning 13+ games...and even more difficult to predict a team winning 4 or less.    I could definitely see JAC scraping together a 7-10 record...maybe even 8-9. They have a new HC, a franchise QB prospect and a pretty strong group of playmakers on offense.   The latest number I saw for HOU was 3.5 though. But even with their turmoil, it's tough to bet on a team going 3-14 or worse over the course of a season.
