And in other breaking news, a Fark headline is factually incorrect.

And the Saints organization will move Hell and Earth to get him back. Compare their record this year with their record last year.

What kind of fantasy land bullshiat is this? Sean is not leaving New Orleans and he's not leaving Drew Brees. He has no chance of making another Superbowl appearance with that douche-bag Tony Romo. The only way that's going to happen is with Brees. Remember that Sean is and always has been a quarterbacks coach and he's pretty much the top offensive coach in recent history. He's going to stay at a place where he can use his talents. Keep dreaming Dallas.

Did I mention that Tony Romo sucks?

If Payton moved to Dallas, Romo would post a 5000+ yard season, assuming he implements a clone of his NOLA system, and Brees would never top 4000 yards again.

That being said, I approve of combining two overrated piles of suck into one and sending Payton to Dallas.

I know that the headline is BS, and that Payton is likely going nowhere, but when Andy Reid gets the boot it would be awesome if Payton came back to the Eagles for next year.

I wouldn't complain. But you know if Payton hits the open market, Jerry Jones is going to make him an offer he'll have a lot of trouble refusing.

Man, people love kicking the shiat out of saints fans when they are down.

/it's got to especially hurt after the LSU meltdown last night
//it's harder to be a Raiders fan......

I think Payton will probably sign another extension with the Saints. The wailing from Saints fans over this should be amusing, though.

SilentStrider: I wouldn't complain. But you know if Payton hits the open market, Jerry Jones is going to make him an offer he'll have a lot of trouble refusing.


ESPN's definitely pushing that story. The only part of the offer Jerry Jones would make him that should give him pause, is that he'd be working for Jerry Jones. Supposedly Jones and Payton had a pretty good relationship when he worked in Dallas, Payton has a home there and everything... but not sure why you'd give up a pretty good situation with the ownership in New Orleans for the headaches that Jones would give you.

You're talking about Sean the assistant coach. Now he's the head coach and the Bensons have traditionally been hands-off owners. They know their core competency is in running auto dealerships and not coaching football. Jerry Jones is very much hands-on much to the detriment of the Cowboys and I don't think Payton as he is today would fit into that mix very well at all. Sean runs the football team not the Bensons. Jones runs the Cowboys, not Bennet, and that would not change if this pie in the sky fantasy were to actually happen.

They might want him back, will he want to go back?

He still lives in Dallas. I'm guessing that if he got a great offer, he may well take it to ease on his commute.

Payton to the Chargers...you heard it here first.
 
2012-11-04 03:06:26 PM  
Would not be surprised if some lucrative offer were throw Payton's way if he truly be comes a free agent. whether or not he takes any is up to him.
 
2012-11-04 03:06:41 PM  
He'll still be coaching the Saints next year. No freaking out until it's time to freak out, lol.
 
2012-11-04 03:16:11 PM  
So Goodell has unilaterally fired Payton from New Orleans then.

THIS will go over well, surely.

The second sentence you posted sounded like something my GF would say.

Redskins will offer him a must-sign contract deal.
 
2012-11-04 03:22:25 PM  
Did Goodell once get robbed by a hooker in New Orleans or something? Is he allergic to crawfish?
 
2012-11-04 03:27:08 PM  
Id like to have him just to get rid of Garrett. I was about to go in to extreme hyperbole and say "Anyone would be better than garrett" but then the name "Romeo Crennel" popped in my head and I decided to count my blessings instead.
 
2012-11-04 03:27:18 PM  
It's funny that the talk was to get rid of Wade Phillips because Jason Garrett was the Golden Boy of coaches. And now that he coaches Dallas, he's sucking as badly as Wade did. Dallas would be a dream coaching job if Jerry Jones wasn't such a meddler, and Romo didn't suck.

fark Goodell. It's turning into the Nascar of Football.League
 
2012-11-04 04:16:26 PM  
Maybe he'll go to a team with a defense.

Tony Romo the Eagle we can only dream

I hate ESPN.

Not for covering the technicality, but for pushing the idiotic Dallas hype machine some more.

Hey, why not throw in some SEC conjecture, as well? Maybe he'll hire Alabama as the second string when he gets to Dallas?
 
2012-11-04 05:47:08 PM  
Niners fire Harbaugh - Hire Payton. It's the only logical move.

skinink: because Jason Garrett was the Golden Boy of coaches.


As much as I wanted bumbling Wade gone, I still saw through Garrett and has dumb play calls. Jerry Jones is a moron, he keeps hiring coordinators to be coaches. At least Wade is a good DC, Garrett is a mediocre at offensive play calls.
 
2012-11-04 07:36:23 PM  
Yeah, wouldn't mind him in Philly.

Something tells me the Saints would not have gone through a series of multi-level interim coaches if they didn't expect him back.

For those who think that Sean would not go to Dallas with Romo. Payton was the QB coach when Romo was drafted, and they both went to Eastern IL Univ.

So, attending the same university and having had a hand in an initial hiring decision forces a coach to overlook Romo being an over-rated douche-nozzle?* You just presented the best argument for saying Payton is a blind moron.

*And it evidently makes you not realize Jerry Jones will be riding you ass bareback every single day of your tenure in Dallas. If you accept the head coaching job at Dallas, the only sane thing to do would be have your anal sphincter snipped open and tattoo JJ's name inside your colon, cause Jones is gonna blow your special gasket and paint his initials in your large intestine anyway

That's pretty much what I take away from it. I don't know if NO will be compelled to follow the Rooney rule and interview candidates or if they'll be able to just re-hire him, but in the end, I don't think it matters. Anyone who thinks Payton will be anywhere other than NO next season is delusional.

No one got fired. They voided his extension. He's still under contract with the Saints through the year. When his suspension ends (the Super Bowl I believe) they'll resign him, and the Saints will have plenty of time to work on his contract around that time anyway.

Why would the Saints be interviewing anyone unless they can't sign him? They don't have to re-hire him, just sign him to another contract. And if they let him go, obviously they'd have to comply with the Rooney rule just like every other team because they'd be looking for a new coach, and not resigning their old one.

Ultimately Payton will stay with the Saints, but, he will entertain other offers just to drive up the price tag. I have a friend who is a Saints fan and I keep telling him every loss this year is a pay raise for Payton.

js34603: No one got fired. They voided his extension.



Yeah, there's a log of firing from the hip in this thread without having read any of the news.

The league is allowed to approve or veto any coaching contract if they feel it's detrimental to the league. The league had been examining this contract extension since it was announced in September 2011, well before the current bounty scandal.

This article linked to the original ESPN Adam Schefter story:

At issue in the contract was one specific clause that would have enabled Payton to walk away from the deal if general manager Mickey Loomis was suspended, fired or left the New Orleans organization, sources said.

The league believed that any such language in Payton's contract would set a bad precedent for other coaching contracts and rejected the deal well before Loomis was suspended for the first eight games this season for his part in the bounty scandal.

"The one contract that was sent into us ... we told him what the issue was," Goodell said. "Now, it's up to the team and Sean Payton. So until I get something back, it's up to them."

Dating back to roughly the start of this year, the two sides engaged in numerous subsequent conversations to try to resolve the issue but never did.


He had a clause in the contract allowing him to bail without penalty if the general manager was suspended or fired - oddly enough, there was no indication when this contract was written that Loomis would eventually be suspended.

So this is a case of a piece of contractual language under review by the league, and they think it would set a bad precedent.

Hmm ... A link submitted by someone who didn't understand all the facts but who just wanted to pour gasoline on the New Orleans Saints dumpster fire?

I'm taking one guess.
