Some of you, those who aren't completely preoccupied with following the antics of that madcap Tom Brady (is he okay?), or drowning your sorrows over the failed prospect of meeting the Saints in the Super Bowl (your sympathy is appreciated), may be aware that New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has dumped Sean Payton and is now reportedly shacking up again with Jeff Fisher over in St. Louis.
That has left the New Orleans front office in a quandary, and given us Saints fans something to talk about besides Alex Smith with the Candlestick in the Sports Bar. There are a lot of potential DC candidates out there; but of course, everyone is concentrating on the big names.
I wanted to talk about someone else, a used-to-be big name: Dean Pees. As you can probably guess, not many fans of an NFC team know a whole lot about a guy who was last a coordinator two years ago...and so, I figured I'd go directly to the best source of information on the subject: Wikipedia. This is what they had to say about the end of Pees' tenure in New England:
Pees chose not to return to the team on January 14, 2010.
So, that brings me here. You guys must know more about what happened than just this. Plus, you must have opinions, pro or con, on whether or not Pees would be a good hire for another DC job. Plus, you must be tired of talking about that boring playoff run and want a break. So please: lay all the information on me. Should we just limit our dreams to Steve Spagnuolo, or is there a viable alternative in Baltimore... someone who is plotting against you at this very moment?
All input much appreciated...
