So it appears parcells.is.mutually.interested with the aints HC gig, says Peyton is.like fam will do anything to help him. Obviously Aints are interestwd but need to Inreeview a minority candidate to follow the rules (cuz they so good at that lol) so i ask

Would you interview as a candidate to satisfy the rooney rule knowing you are basically interviewing for nothing?

I'm sure they will interview from within to satisft the rule but just a question I felt like asking.

No, interviewing a total waste of time.

Interviewing from within doesn't count. This would be a promotion. The rule only applies to outside the organization candidates.

Speaking about Payton, he way to early jumped the gun on saying he wanted Parcells to interim while he serves his time. He didn't have that power without the owners ok. Typical of his arrogant attitude, esp admitting the bounty program and now wanting to appeal the length of time he's in time out. Take it like a man, serve your time knowing the NFL now has 31 viable teams plus the Taints = 32. In our south division the Sucs and Panties may grow in number of wins while the Facons win the division.

Ok so from what I read on these post someone from outside would have to interview, so why would nthey interview tho knowing its to satisy a rule?

They would by rule, have to interview a minority candidate. If they really want Parcells they would have to document what they didn't like about the minority candidate if they didn't take him. To me its a all a game just to spread the chances of being a head coach to everyone. Thats the day and age we live in.

Eh he won't be much more than a figurehead. Not sure how much effect a 70+ year old man can do in 1 year, (w/ shortened offseason) with guys who don't even know him and coaches that aren't his.

Me thinks the Saints just need a big name guy unassociated with Bountygate so they can deflect the uncomfortable questions from here to January.

Herm Edwards: Saints are making a mockery of the Rooney Rule

The New Orleans Saints are in talks with Bill Parcells about becoming their interim head coach during Sean Payton’s season-long suspension. But those talks can’t progress to a formal job offer until the Saints fulfill the requirements of the Rooney Rule by interviewing a minority candidate. Which raises the question: What are the Saints going to do if they decide Parcells is the guy they want, and Parcells decides he wants the job?

The Saints’ options would be twofold: They could either hire Parcells in blatant violation of the Rooney Rule, as the Lions did with Steve Mariucci in 2003, and therefore open themselves up to further league discipline right after they faced the toughest league discipline in NFL history over their bounty scandal. Or they could start looking for a minority candidate who’s willing to go through the motions of a sham interview simply to help the Saints and the league keep up the appearance that every coaching vacancy includes a minority candidate.

Former NFL head coach Herm Edwards says that either way, the situation is a mess.

“It makes it a little bit of a scam now,” Edwards said on ESPN. “That’s the shame of it all. Sean Payton opening his mouth like he did, he really reflects that this thing is going to become a sham if Bill Parcells takes this job. Because if you do decide to interview a minority, you’re going to go with Bill Parcells. You’ve already said, ‘This is our coach.’ That’s the shame of it all. It puts the commissioner in another bind.”

Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice was seated next to Edwards on the SportsCenter set when the subject came up, and Rice questioned whether any minority candidate would agree to interview for the Saints’ interim head coaching job. All indications out of New Orleans are that if the Saints go outside the franchise for an interim head coach, they’re going to hire Parcells. And that means any minority candidate they interview would know in advance that the purpose of the interview is to satisfy the letter of the Rooney Rule, even after they’ve already violated the spirit of the Rooney Rule.

“I know for me, I would not want to go do an interview if I’m not going to get that job,” Rice said.

Edwards added that the Saints have already, by reaching out to Parcells but not reaching out to any minorities, indicated that they’re going to go after the coach they want and not broaden their coaching search to include minority candidates, which the Rooney Rule is designed to make teams do.

“They’re making a mockery of the rule right now,” Edwards said.

I think it was a case of Payton thinking he owns the team and would like big bill tuna to sub for him while he was under house arrest. The owner never said this was his idea and most likely didn't appreciate Payton running his mouth. Just my thoughts on how it all came down.

Why you say that ?

when the Giants won the Super Bowl that was his first year as a DC. the year after that the offense was clicking and had a ball control offense which lead to teams having to pass against a team with a very good pass rush. we'll finally get to see what he can do as a DC.

Legit question, these guys got in trouble doing it the Saint way and it looks like they've just continued down the path of their unprofessional behavior...

I wouldn't bother to interview knowing they wanted someone else. My time is too valuable to waste on a useless interview.

Nice to see old Herm ain't worried about telling it like it is. It's clear the organization is lost. They have no plan and everyone is out doing their own thing... Now Herm aint worried about feeling sorry for these dirtbags he's just gathering facts and laying them out there.
