Hello, sports fans. Welcome to Day 1 of the Joe Vitt era.

You’ll be happy to know that Thomas Morstead, at least, isn’t worried. “Having Drew (Brees) as our quarterback is like having another head coach on the team.” It’s good to know at least part of the team is signing on to the “We Got This” attitude. The media, of course, begs to differ. The Saints’ 2012 season is going to be a train wreck.

John Clayton at ESPN believes our schedule will do us in. Oh, not because it’s difficult, but because it’s more difficult than last year’s (statistically, based of course on last year’s results). There’s a .65 winning percentage differential between last year’s schedule and this years’s; and, as John kindly points out, “My studies of schedules over the years indicate that any change of .20 is worth a win or a loss.” I wonder of John’s studies also indicate a range of results. For instance, might it be that some teams—the good ones—actually improve during a season with a tougher schedule? Might it also be that some tough schedules turn out to be creampuffs because last year’s good teams fall on hard times? Might it be that, well, that’s why they play the games?

Clayton also points out that in 2009 the Saints went 13-3 playing the easiest schedule in football. Of course, the win-loss differential of their foes was somewhat influenced by the fact that all of them had to play the Saints. And, of course, the translucent façade that was the 2009 Saints also managed to, erm, win the Super Bowl. Lucky bastards.

I must also mention, in passing, one of the most egregious instances of pot-calling I’ve ever seen. Gregg Doyel of CBS Sports (who must be seething over the fact that Gregg Williams uses up all the G’s) obviously has it in for Sean Payton, or else he’s having an affair with Mike Freeman.

Sean Payton, smartest guy in every room he has ever walked into, thought he could do what he did and not get busted. Can you believe that? He thought he could get away with it.

I’m not talking about the bounty system his team used to target and then savage opposing players. I’m talking about the stuff that came afterward. The interim coach who was picked to replace Payton. I’m talking about that.

Once an arrogant SOB, always an arrogant SOB. That’s Sean Payton, and then some. Arrogant, smarter-than-thou, the whole thing. He’s a piece of work, this guy, because what he has done — what he thought he could do, and get away with it — is sacrifice New Orleans’ 2012 season to serve the greater good.

The greater good being the star power of Sean Payton.

Excuse me, but isn’t Doyel’s entire schtick pretending to be the smartest guy in every room? Explaining what it all means to the rest of us? Typing away from his lofty, paid perch, knowing the objects of his scorn can never hit back at him so long as he never pretends to be dealing in facts? What Doyel is, actually, is a bully, using words rather than wedgies. He is a contemptible human being.

Writers like Clayton and Doyel could never succeed at any level in real sports—and let’s face it, they cover sports because they couldn’t hack it in news. The only sports reporters who have my respect are ones like Jay Glazer and (sometimes) Adam Schefter, who dig for info and very often get it right.

    “smartest guy in every room he walked into” [sarcasm]
    “arrogant SOB” [x 2]
    “Arrogant”
    “Smarter than thou”
    “piece of work”

    Yep, objectivity on parade.

    I won’t even start about Clayton.

    CBS Sports has become the Fox News of internet sports editorials. I never bother reading them anymore. It’s not just because they seem to love bashing my team and head coach (Mike Freeman has been bashing Payton ever since the 2009 playoffs), but more that their writing rarely brings any new information to the discussion and is more about stoking the fires of outrage and sensationalism. I guess they think they draw more revenue-producing traffic that way and maybe they do. Yahoo Sports and John Clayton are pretty much the same way. All of sports journalism seems to be heading towards that crass, uninformative, holier than thou pontification. I’m pretty much burned out on it.

    People in the “legitimate media” like to turn their noses up at bloggers, but I can’t see any difference anymore between the two.

      Sadly I still visit CBS sports regulary for fantasy news. Looks like I might need to boycot them and make the jump to rotoworld.

    I just read another idiot who says Sean is hoping the Saints suck this year which he basically insured by naming Vitt as HC. Like Sean is worried more about his job next year than the Saints sticking it good to God-dell this year. Yeah, right. Man I’m sooooooooooo tired of the way they keep finding new ways to spend this. I can’t wait for the Season to start so the Team can

      Must say I’ve never looked forward to as season so much. Even 2006 doesn’t compare to the anticipation IMO. I have gotten to the point that I can’t even discuss the bounty shit anymore.

    How exactly does Payton do it? Make Benson part of his egomania. This was Benson’s decision, ultimately. And he’s pretending somehow the Payton’s arrogance made it happen with no one to stop him!

    If John Clayton were to die…..what do you think he would die from? I’m gonna say…..heart attack due to chronic masturbation…..preferably while sitting on the toilet.

    I can’t stand John Clayton, but his accuracy rate seems disturbingly high. Why else would they let a guy like that on TV? I don’t even know the Doyel guy, but this was overlooked: >>”Payton tried to hire was his buddy Bill Parcells, who hasn’t been good in years and who would have taken the job with a clear expiration date”

    That’s the truth.
    But who else is viable candidate for head coach? Nobody who is good wants a 1 year job with all the restrictions (do everything Payton’s way). Mr. Doyel (a nom de plume only half as bad as HooHay’s) neglected to school us on that point.

          Oh, Satch and I go way back. We were even considering adoption at one point, and then he rekindled his thing with Jessica Simpson and I was left home alone, again. Better days!
          .
          Anyway, you mean you miss me since Dec 29 or you miss me since DefJunkn?
          .
          Hey, you guys should start a poll as to whether Stujo4 should be reinstated pending an apology for still unnamed infractions. Or a poll as to whether the infractions should be named. This must be handled delicately, however. We don’t want Mr. Dave to fly into another hissy and demand a choice of either him or me. That was embarrassing last time, even to me. But especially to him.

          On the other hand, if the content has devolved to “Should Saints Add Petrino to Coaching Staff?”, it might be more embarrassing to be reinstated. Jesus1000. The kid’s nom de plume is somewhat of a misnomer.

            Actually I prefer you under the stujo4 handle because….

            1. Everyone knows what comes with seeing that handle on the forum. You are either gonna get…..
            A. Something controversial…that generally will piss off the majority of people on the thread or maybe just the person being replied to while the rest of us laugh. (well we laugh until we are the butt of the joke)
            B. Something well thought out that is Rec worthy although some of us might have to google some of the references being made or think about the comment for awhile before we acrually get it.

            Or…..

            2. I might not recognize which screen name you are using for severel weeks before I realize that is actually you and then I have to go back and reread all your comments which is a bitch to do at that point because by that time you are usually in the hundreds. I also have become a paranoid schizophrenic due to constantly staring at new members’ comments trying to determine if it is actually you or not. It used to be much easier but you have become better at concealing yourself.

                There are a LOT of new members, surprisingly. It doesn’t take long for me to tip my hand though. Unless I show great restraint. I do have one who pretends to be a fan of another team. Guest members who have a different point of view that is not aggressively competitive or critical of the Saints are not treated well on CSC. That’s a shame because I am always impressed and proud of how well visiting fans are treated at the Superdome. As opposed to Buffalo and Kansas City.

                  I think trolls should expect to be abused. On the other hand, you’re right, we have members on CSC who are too willing to jump on any guest who is not actually a Saints fan without hearing them out. I’m just glad I’m not the Bossman.

            Hey Stu, I must have been somewhat tuned out when all of this went down. All I knew was you and Dave got into a disagreement over something. I never got around to looking for the details.

            There’s lots of new people lately and too many fans of other teams gloating over the “bounty” bullshit. Plus coldpizza and jeff have returned to call we who don’t agree with Herr Goodell’s punishment “a bunch of whiners.” So, you’re not missing much. I’m kinda burned out on the whole thing and have little interest in anything NFL these days. If Dave can find someone else to take over my responsibilities, I’ll probably disappear for a while and focus on other non-football things.

              Oh no, it was not a disagreement. It was him reaching the end of his rope. I told it like it is and he made it like it was. Then coldpizza puts up the “lucky club” remark: and nothing.
              .
              Yeah, the offseason is not as fun as it used to be. You can’t go home again. Well, except for you 20 something losers. You go back home all the time. GET A JOB!

                WOW! I totally missed that little explosion. First time I’ve seen it. Yeah, I don’t understand why coldpizza hasn’t been banned. I stopped reading his comments a long time ago until last week when he called me a whiny bitch and said I have a history of being rude to visitors. I responded with a few “F*** Yous!” and a long rebuttal, but Dave deleted my comment, which I didn’t have a real problem with because I did break the rules.

                  This blog exists in large part to have someplace to go to without having to put up with that monumental colon blockage known as coldpizza. If he ever shows up here–and by that, I mean shows himself, as himself, under whatever name–he will be banned immediately.

                  Dave, on the other hand, is still a friend, and has been very supportive of this venture. I do wish y’all would consider this neutral ground and not a Dave-free zone.

                    I do consider it that way. I don’t have a problem with Dave, but Mr. Colon Blockage is a supreme douche. BTW, Dave will be a daddy for the first time very soon. Just got an email from him saying his wife went into labor this morning. I hope he doesn’t mind me spreading the news.

                    Everywhere but CSC is a Dave-free zone, for me. He may be the boss of you-all, but he is not the boss of me.

                      And I’d like to point out for 9th time that Mr. Colon Blockage was my #1 nemesis for some time, until we came to an understanding of sorts. I don’t know, maybe he likes me and does not like you-all and that’s being reciprocated. Maybe if we all tried to love one another instead of seeing everything as a competition, then we could somehow see that it’s all… oooh Housewives is on!

            I did that while I was REALLY mad. Ban me? I put your mug on as my profile. Parts of me are still a 16 year old boy. The wrong parts.

      “Why else would they let a guy like that on TV?”

      Why, his stunning good looks, of course.

        On his home planet, he’s considered quite a looker.

    Well I am officially confused by the turn the comment thread has taken – not to mention grossed out by the liver – but I just wanted to vent about this guy’s remarks in this article!

    Sean Payton does still have a few more years left on his contract to coach the Saints right? And this suspension is suppose to be for THIS year right? So why in the heck wouldn’t they (temporarily) promote from within and keep their offensive system the same as much as possible?

    I was actually surprised to hear they were talking to anyone outside the organization for the job, but I guess Parcells could have made sense considering his fondness for Payton and the fact it’s a temp job. Resetting the whole HOF clock would be a tough pill to swallow though. Especially at his age.

    It just never occurred to me that it would be worth any real contender’s time to want to coach a team for one year. He didn’t get fired. He got suspended. Suspended – meaning, “yeah, you’re in charge for a bit – you can even sit in my seat for a while, but don’t screw with my plans or my process – and don’t get comfortable.”

    I don’t understand this guy’s problem. Or his point of view.
