Guess WHO is a HOT HOT HOT Coaching Candidate????
Thats right its SEAN PAYTON!!!
His value has skyrocketed after the Saints 0-4 Start.
His Contract extension was void as part of Bounty-gate... Now Teams like the Cowboys, Saints, Eagles, etc may go after him as soon as end of 2012 Season!!!
[BTW: In another thread I pointed out how Sean Payton intentionally put the Saints in a position to lose/start slow via manipulating the situation and choosing 2 coaches which are sub par for his replacements and overlooking a great OC as coach and Bill Parcels!
If Saints started out 4-0 instead of 0-4, Payton would be in SOL situation. He would be a tainted coach who will be seen as replaceable and much of the credit would have gone towards the players & new coach.
If they won a SB or made a deep playoff run with a formidable coach like their OC or Bill Parcells, then there would be very little chance he returns and his open market value might be a fraction of what it is now.]
This was selfish move by an egocentric coach protecting his career. This is a move that has gone unnoticed by many fans and media but not all!
