    Good for him. He's done a great job with the Saints, IMO. He deserves it.

    And by the way it really amazes me that in the NFC you can go 10-6 and get a first round bye.

    Well, that choice was obvious -- who amongst us predicted that the Saints would win that division? He certainly deserves it -- as does his city. The only thing that disturbs me is that it seems to validate the Saints' ownership.

    Good for him. He's been a great addition to me NFC team. The Saints have always been the only other team I can watch, albeit not as closely or with asmuch passion as the Pats. Hopefully they go deep into the playoffs... then lose to us in the Super Bowl ;)

    Payton should send a thank you note to Aaron Brooks - for no longer being on the Saints.

    Hard to argue. I suspect nobody picked No higher than #3.

    But watch out, Sean: didn't Jim Mora and Dick Jauron both lose their jobs the year after they won coach of the year?

    (In baseball, there was even a coach of the year get fired this year.)

    Mangini deserved it more. N.O. has Brees (second in MVP voting), NYJ have Pennington, N.O. has McCallister & Bush, the Jets have Barlow & Washington (a fine rookie RB), N.O. plays in the NFC, the Jets played in the toughest division in football, also the best Conference. Mangini obviously had less weapons and talent to work with than Payton, and wound up with the same record. Nothing against Payton, but IMO Mangini deserves it more.
