Sean Payton: 5 Teams That Should Call Saints Head Coach After Season
It's homecoming season, and Sean Payton is now the prettiest girl in the school. After being dumped by the quarterback (or having his contract extension voided by Roger Goodell), his phone will be ringing off the hook.
So who is going to give the new-age Bill Parcells a call?
Click through to find out.
Jason Garrett's time with the Dallas Cowboys is running short, and Jerry Jones isn't going to settle for a non-splash hire.
He's going to want the biggest fish in the pond.
That is Sean Payton.
Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden are also big-name hires, but they lack the attitude of Payton.
As the last seconds tick away on yet another Philadelphia Eagles loss, the speculation is turning to certainty that Andy Reid won't return for 2013.
The Eagles still have plenty of talent, they just need a swift kick in the butt and an infusion of aggression. That fits Sean Payton just fine.
The brash coach would love the weapons that are already in place in Philly. He can use Michael Vick for another year or two while grooming promising rookie Nick Foles for the future.
How much longer can the Buffalo Bills hold on to Chan Gailey?
All memories of last year's torrid start were washed away with a whimper of a finish.
After spending loads of money on Mario Williams, the Bills never got going. The team has looked mediocre from the start.
It isn't the optimal situation for Sean Payton since Ryan Fitzgerald is not as talented as the previous two quarterbacks on this list. However, that doesn't mean the Bills wouldn't want Payton.
New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs are a wreck of a franchise. The team is 1-7 without ever having led a game in regulation.
But that means they are the favorite to land the top overall pick—a pick that could be used on a Geno Smith or a Matt Barkley.
Or, as either may become better known as one day, Sean Payton's latest success story.
Much like a puppy that you can train from Day 1, this would give Payton the opportunity to mold the future of the franchise. And Dwayne Bowe might even stick around with the Chiefs making this type of commitment to winning.
