New Orleans Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt will have rough return in season

Vitt will have to be in full gear upon his return because the Saints will travel to face the Denver Broncos and their new quarterback Peyton Manning.

If the bye week had been scheduled a week later, this would give Vitt the time to come in and game-plan a little more instead of having to jump back in head first.

Now if it was anybody other than Peyton Manning, then the Saints may not need to sweat it so much.  But neck surgery or no, it’s still Peyton Manning.  Better yet, it’s Peyton Manning wanting to prove he can still play with a chip on his shoulder.

Surely the Saints are trying to account for all of the intangibles during the offseason right now, but Week 8 in the NFL will be a long way off for Vitt.

Though it isn’t official yet, much speculation is that offensive line coach Aaron Kromer will guide the Saints as “interim” interim head coach for the first seven weeks until Vitt’s return.

    Time has come we must get pass all of the mess that our New Orleans Saints went through and be there for their support. I know some of our WHO DAT NATION fans have done lowed their flags on the Saints. This is the time to show everyone that we.are not cheater and we don’t play dirty ball we are going to face a lot of talking from other fans. Our respect for them and our team is our biggest task this season its not going to be easy but we can do this thang. I know we seen the Saints schedule for this year it dont look fair but we can’t do anything about it but win the games that sit before us. We need this Super Bowl Championship this 2013 support our team 100% they has a lot on them but we they know they fans are behind them all the way they will be alright. (2012 – 2013 New Orleans Saints year).

    We’ll be alright this season. Looking at the schedule, I see at least 10 wins easily with the strong possibly that the Saints grab 3 more. Kromer will do an excellent job of guidance in the interinterim (is that a word-just what is his designation since Vitt is the official interim?). I think the fans in the dome will account for many victories (it’s going to be insane in the CBD on home game days)….and the love and passion will travel with the team. I can’t wait for the season to start!!
