While the Saints will be without Superbowl winning coach Sean Payton for an entire year because of his role in the bounty program, Sean Payton has called on the services of one of his former coaches and who he considers his mentor, Bill Parcells. Parcells was formerly the Vice President of Football Operations with the Miami Dolphins and is currently an analyst for ESPN. Payton and Parcells coached together in Dallas when Payton was the offensive coordinator and Parcells the head coach. Payton will appeal his suspension to the league and commissioner Roger Goddell.
As a die hard Saints fan, I’m all in to get the “Big Tuna.” He has won superbowls, coached great players, and is sure to be inducted in the NFL hall of fame one day. I always had a deep respect for Bill Parcells because he is a good coach and looks like a man who leads by example and not just by his words. He has the right attitude for the Saints because he’ll bring a little more ruggedness and toughness to the team. If we get the “Big Tuna,” I think it’ll be a good way to poke fun at the commissioner. Yeah you may have suspended our coach for a year but we’re still fine because we have another quality coach to fill in so we’re still strong. I’m tuned in to ESPN daily hoping to see some breaking news that Parcells has accepted to be the Saints coach for the year.
