In an article called "Thinking Outside the Box When It Comes To The Saints" - Brad Biggs at National Football Post suggested not promoting Spags or Carmichael due to the big jobs they already have in front of them in their respective coordinator positions.
I was just wondering what some of the more seasoned pros over here thought about his suggestion of having Bill Parcells as an Interim Heach Coach. Being a Jersey girl born and raised, I vaguely remember his time with the New York (pppppttt! You play in New Jersey!) Giants as reasonably successful (2 SBs!). Maybe it could work? Of course, I was young and not really in to football then so - maybe he's over rated?
I have to admit I am really freaking out for the team. I'm sorry I wasn't a Saints fan during the 'Aints / bag days, so I know I may never truly be accepted by the WhoDat Nation. But I do know that while I may have jumped on the Drew Brees/Saints bandwagon at exactly the right time (winning!), I can't seem to jump off of it now. I watched every game I could in 2010 and I cried when the Seahawks sent "us" packing. (What the heck is a Seahawk anyway??) I believed from the opening snap that 2011 was going bring another championship to NO and it's like adding insult to injury to me now that the Giants are the reigning superbowl champions when the Saints were clearly so much better than them. I watched the Giants because I found myself getting more into football a few years ago, they were always on, and my brother is a fanatic, but I never cared as much for Eli and the Giants as I do for Drew (Marques & Jimmy) and the Saints.
Since my doctor has flatly refused my request to put me in a medically induced coma until this is all over, I should probably go get a life, come back when the season starts and hope for the best. But now that I've found you guys here on CSC, I can't seem to walk away and stop torturing myself with reading post after post. So this is my first attempt to start a conversation, I'd really like to hear your thoughts on this Parcells idea.
