So the other day I got to thinking, what if someone did the same thing with the New Orleans Saints? It would be awesome, no?
Well, that someone is me. Our story begins after the jump.
In between building media empires and selling used cars, you are in control of the New Orleans Saints. Most of the time, this is a pretty cool gig, involving dancing with parasols and cajolling the local government into sweatheart business deals. But this offseason has been trying. Your general manager, head coach, and some of your players have earned suspensions following accusations of a bounty program in your midst … a bounty program that may or may not have even existed (Okay, it did, but does anyone have any proof? Yeah, I thought so.).
The good news is you got your star quarterback, Drew Brees, signed to a huge contract, and you have what looks like a pretty stocked roster headed into training camp.
Some months ago, it was determined that Joe Vitt would be your head coach this year, but he has his own suspension to serve (the first six games of the season), and you do have other solid choices for the job in Pete Carmichael (who ran the offense superbly in your head coach’s absence last fall) and Steve Spagnuolo (a former head coach himself). You are now having second thoughts about this Joe Vitt decision.
