Bill Parcells, Saints To Meet Tuesday About Possible Interim Coaching Job

That thing about the New Orleans Saints looking into whether Bill Parcells might want to take over the team during Sean Payton's sabbatical? It's not going away -- Payton talked about it while speaking at the owners' meetings Tuesday morning -- and the two parties will reportedly meet later on in the day.

The jury's out on whether this would be a good move for everybody involved, but I know the average Atlanta Falcons fan would probably prefer to see some current Saints cornerbacks coach have to run the team for a season. Parcells can take over a locker room in an instant, and he's worked with Payton for several years before. Brian Billick tweeted that he wouldn't like the arrangement, so there's at least one contrary voice.

As we keep learning with the modern edition of the Saints, things just seem to keep working out all right.
