In what has become rare for the team these days — fortunate news — there is one less roadblock to worry about in the Saints’ pursuit to rustle Bill Parcells out of retirement as the substitute head coach.
Per the Associated Press, commissioner Roger Goodell stated he won’t prevent New Orleans from hiring Parcells, saying, “That’s their decision.”
“That’s their decision. They need to make those decisions and we’ll move forward,” Goodell said Monday. “Bill’s a great coach, and I’m sure (he) will add a lot of personality and intrigue. And he’s as competitive as they get, so I’m sure he’ll do a good job.”
There is no question Sean Payton would love to see this happen, recently admitting there’s interest in placing his squad in the hands of a longtime friend and confidant.
The problem for Payton is he’s currently in NFL purgatory, waiting to have his season-long suspension appeal heard by the commish. That’s of the BountyGate variety, of course, so he’s not (or sho

Just when their fans thought the Minnesota Vikings were on the path to a drama-free future, a startling report surfaced in the New York Post on Wednesday morning that team owner Zygi Wilf is pushing hard to bring future Hall of Fame football coach Bill Parcells to Minnesota to "run the show."
What does that mean?
Well, according to The Post, a source said Parcells was...

NO THANK YOU
Some of Sean Payton's assistant coaches are reportedly upset over the possibility of Bill Parcells coaching the Saints in 2012. They believe a current New Orleans could handle the job.
There are rarely dull days when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings, but waking up to a report that team owners Zygi and Mark Wilf had approached Bill Parcells to coach and "run the show" was certainly unexpected.
The New York Post delivered the news Wednesday morning that a source said Parcells claimed at a recent dinner with New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton that he...
An unnamed source for the New York Post on Wednesday is saying that Minnesota Viking owner, Ziggy Wilf, has reached out to Bill Parcells in an attempt to not only come in and run the team, but coach it as well. Parcells had a recent dinner date with now suspended New Orlean Saints' coach, Sean Payton. At that dinner he informed Sean and the Saints that Wilf was very interested...
Roger Goodell, the same man who levied the suspension, will hear Sean Payton's appeal on Thursday. And the odds are slim that Goodell will shorten his season-long suspension of Payton for basically misleading NFL investigators and not putting a stop to Bountygate when the league first checked out the allegations at the end of the 2009 season, just weeks before Payton and the...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the current assistant coaches of the New Orleans Saints that have been mentioned as possible replacements for head coach Sean Payton for the 2012 season, aren’t happy about the idea of an outsider like Bill Parcells possibly coming in and taking over as the interim head coach.
One of Florio’s sources indicated that the idea is...
If Bill Parcells returned to the NFL to coach the New Orleans Saints, it probably wouldn't shock many people. Parcells getting hired by the Minnesota Vikings, on the other hand -- well, it still probably wouldn't surprise anyone. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf told the Hall of Fame candidate to "name his price" to take over the team's football operations and coaching...
The NFLPA got word this week that, along with the most likely suspensions and fines, there may also be jail time. So in light of that news the NFLPA went out and hired lawyers for the 12-players allegedly involved in the bounty scandal.
If this scandal couldn’t get any nastier it just did; the idea that players may be put behind bars is just absurd to me. Think about it for...
The NFL Players Association has told players involved in the New Orleans Saints' bounty case there's a chance they could face criminal charges and it has hired outside counsel.
While Commissioner Roger Goodell weighs how to punish players the league says might be connected to the bounties, the NFLPA also has suggested that players have a lawyer and union representative present...
