Coaching the New Orleans Saints this upcoming season will be a group effort

It was okay last year because Payton was able to communicate with Carmichael, Vitt, Brees, and others by meetings and from the upstairs coaches box.

This year though, Payton won’t be available by any means because of the terms of his suspension.  Even for six games that could be a big burden on anyone.

Spagnuolo doesn’t want the position really and he can’t be blamed.  Yes, he was a head coach for three seasons, but not a truly successful one.  Plus, he needs to be able to implement his new defense and focus on that, which is understandable.

After the last few seasons of having an alleged “bend but don’t break” defense, I don’t think you’re going to find someone, especially a Saints fan, that will want Spagnuolo to focus on anything but the defense.

With Kromer, he has no head coaching experience, but it’s not just that.  Kromer will also have his hands full making sure when quarterback Drew Brees signs his new contract, he has a capable line to protect him.

    Don’t count the Saints out 3 heads is better than one if Sean Payton is not there what some of us don’t understand the Saints is a elite team they always had a group team. Even with Sean Payton there they hear each others ideas they will be alright as long as they keep to themselves as a team everything will be okay I believe in the Saints all the way I seen what they can do they are the elite team the only the team in NFL that you can’t put 14points on the broad and think you okay against the Saints you not because they can beat you with those 14.
