    It's very obvious. Garrett no extension was the icing on the cake. He's done after 2019 season just as Payton. Coincidence? I think not. Jerry already made a deal. Unfortunately, the media/fans can only go by the rumors that trickled out.

    Well said. What I was trying to say in a nutshell is simply that Cowboys fans are so hungry for some coaching and leadership credibility, we sometimes become overly optimistic about certain things. The last 23 years has been a beat down and hope is often all we have.

    Either way, the guy was right. The Cowboys did offer their second round pick for Earl Thomas. Seattle turned it down.

    So you're questioning team reporters but giving credence to what your friends are saying? I think there's your first problem right there.

    The Saints struggles have always been on the defensive side of the ball, when Payton has had a good defensive coordinator to handle that side of the ball, he's won. Even when the team's record overall wasn't good, his offense's are still ranked among the league's best.

    And let's not forget, if the refs were able to do their jobs, he may have had another Super Bowl this year.

    20 years later? That's still "what you're seeing"? A Super Bowl and Hall of Fame quarterback later and that's "what you're seeing"? That sounds like a personal issue.

    Part of the reason his defenses have been bad is the players he picked, including a top 15 dt were a complete washout. He cut ties with the one DC after one season... the guy was all the rage in giants land a couple of years earlier. I can't see Dak or many other QBs running that offense successfully. How much of his success is actually Brees?

    You can look up Payton's track record. His offenses are undeniably and consistently among the league's best, year after year. If there's a criticism, it's that the defensive side of the ball lets the team down. You can blame Payton for not being able to find or then keep defensive coordinators if you want. But when he has even a decent defense, he wins.

    No way of truly knowing unless it happens. But I give him credit for resuscitating the failing career of Kerry Collins in New York, developing an undrafted Tony Romo in Dallas, and then helping Drew Brees to develop into the Hall of Fame player he is today.

    No way of knowing, but the fact is that Brees numbers are far better under Payton that they ever were before:

    Payton has already answered this when he said when your the HC of Dallas Cowboys they know your name in China.
