[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Not much of a surprise. The only thing that ruined his chances were Bounty Gate and even that has seemed to blow over quite nicely.[/font][/i]

No doubt, a lot of owners are waiting for Payton to clear up his contract and snatch him right up.......the dude has mastermind of offense, similar to Belichick type of coach.

This also means Jerry Jones is forced to go with Garrett because the one big name coach he wanted is now off the market. Unless of course Jerry goes for Gruden but those two are the only big name coaches I know Jerry would sign. Now he is stuck with Garrett.

This is good for the Saints, that means they could very well go back to being an elite team and Super Bowl contender once again.

I wonder how NO will rebound next season with Payton back at the helm? He should whip the offense back into shape. Not sure how much he can do with their bottom-feeding defense. I suppose they'll snatch pass rushers left and right in the draft.
