New Orleans Saints assistant coach Joe Vitt was officially named the interim head coach today and will take over when Sean Payton begins his suspension.  But the question is, who will take over for Vitt when he serves his six game suspension?

ESPN’s  Adam Schefter seems to think that it will be offensive line coach Aaron Kromer who fills in for Vitt during the first part of the season.  But the thought has to be if this is the right choice.

In a recent article, I placed the charge that it will be a group effort for the entire staff to band together in order to maintain the stable environment that has been in place since the 2006 season.

This is probably what truly worried most Saints fans after years of uncertainty that made the Saints look like the Bad News Bears of the NFL for most of their existence.

If Kromer were to fill in, then it makes sense because Pete Carmichael Jr. needs to focus on the offense and Steve Spagnuolo will need to focus on defense.

Not saying Kromer isn’t an important cog in the wheel, but he should be able to handle the duties of head coach for six games while also taking care of the offensive line, especially with help from the entire staff.

    In a way I’m glad that the Saints are doing a group thang because it was going to be hard to find someone to step in and give you a helping hand worrying about what other may say about you people’s has good intention but really looking at the situation and don’t want to be involved. So it’s good to show people’s that you and your team are capable of it yourself then you will feel good about your team and the guys around you knowing they are on your side. Then no one can take you guys credit but Mr. Tom Benson, Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, and the other coaching staff. I’m a true New Orleans Saints Fans I’m going down with my Saints when they backs are against the wall I’m not a light switch that you can turn on and off. Long as the Saints winning I’m pON, but when the Saints are losing I’m OFF by looking on the website some of you say you are true Saints Fans I can’t tell by some of you guys comments. What happened to the WHO DAT NATION fans got affair of Roger Goodell he not smart he don’t understand WHO DAT NATION talk but we understood what he meant. Kill the head the tail will die in other words this is what Roger Goodell is saying I killed the heads which is Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Joe Vitt, not killing them physically but mentally and the tail will die which is the Saints team. New Orleans Saints and fans going to show NFL Commissioner and all 31 teams that tails don’t die everytime a head die we are the WHO DAT, SAID DAT, WE DAT, WIN DAT, Super Bowl 2013.
