Sean Payton says he's interested in returning to the NFL as a head coach in 2023 if the "right situation" presents itself.
Pete should retire after this season and Seahawks should get Payton.
That's a huge stretch. A cursory look at team defensive rankings during Brees' prime years shows them consistently in like the 12th-22nd range. Jonathan Vilma was a solid defensive leader, and they had some good pass rushers in guys like Will Smith, Cameron Jordan, Charles Grant, and Junior Gallete. They had some issues in the secondary, but there was still solid talent with Malcolm Jenkins, Roman Harper, Kenny Vaccaro, etc.Why Sean Payton didn't win more Superbowls?
He was an offensive coach who had historically bad defenses for a stretch.
Sean Payton wants complete control over team. Jerry Jones will never give it to him.Why Sean Payton didn't win more Superbowls?
He was an offensive coach who had historically bad defenses for a stretch. By the time he got the defensive side of the ball fixed, Brees had already gotten old.
I don't think he has any interest in coaching Seattle. He probably wants the Dallas job when it inevitably becomes available. Won't happen, but he'd be a good fit for Mac Jones and NE.
