Sean Payton's courting of Bill Parcells to coach New Orleans Saints is defiant move toward NFL - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN
Days after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell meted out a year-long ban to Payton for his "complicity" in bounty-gate, the young coach found a way to reveal this as the joke it is. He reportedly approached Parcells about stepping in this season as interim head coach of the Saints. And just like that, what began as a way to punish New Orleans — and more importantly send a legal message — has instead become a possible tactical advantage for the Saints. They get one of the best motivators the game has seen, and Payton gets to live in Dallas with his wife and kids and watch. There is no bigger non-verbal insult than this.
