The Dallas Morning News reports that Bill Parcells will not allow Tony Sparano to follow Sean Payton to New Orleans.
Nick Eatman at dallascowboys.com runs through many of the assistant coach scenarios for Dallas now the Payton is gone. Pretty standard stuff but a good read. Then he had to throw this out there and got me all verklempt.
Just when I get my head wrapped around the idea that Haley, Sparano or even Chris Palmer will be taking over, somebody has to throw Al Saunders name into the mix. Then I read another article where Chris Mortenson said if Saunders doesn't get a head coaching job (see Oakland) there is no way he returns to the Chiefs.
Pick up the phone Tuna, call your good buddy Dick Vermiel, and tell him to put in the good word if Oakland doesn't hire Saunders.
Our center Al Johnson is a little nutty, but in a fun kind of way. Read this interview.
Sean Payton is his own man, not a Parcells clone. Just read his words.
Paging Mini-Me, report to the Super Dome please. Your team is waiting.
