The situations are not comparable. LeBron left for a much better chance at a championship, and gave up nothing but "leaving" his hometown. DAL would be a worse situation for Payton. The only justifiable reason he could go is if Jerruh showers him with $10M/year or something. And even then, it's probably a stupid move. He's going to be expected to win the Super Bowl every year, and the media will never ever shut up about him if he doesn't.
Cool a LBJ discussion. LBJ: Great player, or greatest player?
I think you'd have to be an idiot to want to go anywhere near Jerry Jones if you are a respectable coach, but I guess Sean Payton disagrees. Personally, I'd be friends with him (if I were friends), but I would never work for Jerry Jones.

I don't put any stock into rumors for the most part, so all I'm going to say is that I would not be surprised if Payton has a desire to coach the Cowboys. He really seems like the kind of guy that is competent, confident, and ambitious. I don't doubt that he wants to win Super Bowls with multiple teams; it's a great way to build a legacy as a coach. Of course, creating a dynasty would be just as great, but who would go down in history more celebrated: the coach of a Saints dynasty, or the coach of a Cowboys dynasty? i think we all know the answer to that one. |
that being said, I find it highly, highly, HIGHLY unlikely that something like this would be happening as soon as next year. 3-4 maybe, but not now.
it won't happen payton stays put in N.O.
i have no doubt that jones can buy a lot of juicy fruit and deliver it properly instead of f***** spearmint
