Sean Payton, Denver Broncos, A Destined Fit

By Jacob Kreisman

Since the retirement of quarterback Peyton Manning, the Broncos have struggled to find answers at the two most important parts of any team: head coach and quarterback. For better or worse, the team is stuck with Russell Wilson in 2023, and Sean Payton could be the head coach that can bring out the best in the Broncos quarterback.

The Denver Broncos Need Sean Payton​


Despite the lofty expectations coming into the season, Wilson had by far his worst statistical season. He ultimately threw for only 16 touchdowns compared to 11 interceptions, while leading the team to an extremely disappointing 4-11 record as the starter.
Meanwhile, the Broncos offense finished last in the league with a paltry 16.9 points per game. Moreover, the blame for this nightmarish season can almost solely be attributed to the offense. If they had scored at least 18 points in regulation in each game they played, they would have finished with a 12-5 record.

The New Orleans Saints filed a couple of roster moves on Thursday’s update to the daily NFL transactions wire, reporting four new reserve/future signings. These are low-cost additions to the offseason roster largely made up of players who were on practice squads around the league at the end of the 2022 season.

And there are a few familiar names on the list of new arrivals. Wide receiver Kawaan Baker is returning from the Saints practice squad, and they’ve brought back second-year kicker Alex Quevedo for another tryout after giving him a look last summer. Here’s what you need to know about...

Dan Quinn stays with Cowboys, may help Sean Payton's odds of finding a new job

The Dallas Cowboys will have Dan Quinn at defensive coordinator for another year, which takes him out of consideration for a couple of the same head coach opportunities that Sean Payton has been interviewing for. The former New Orleans Saints head coach was in the mix for the same openings with the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals as Quinn, and taking a competitor off the board could force one of those teams to act and offer Payton what he wants.

Maybe. Possibly. There are plenty of other candidates interviewing with those teams, too, some of them repeatedly as they work into...

The Saints have added another four players to their roster going into next season through reserve/future contracts, bringing their total up to 14 now. Wide receiver Kawaan Baker, linebacker Ryan Connelly, tight end Miller Forristall, and kicker Alex Quevedo are the newest to join New Orleans, as announced by the team on Thursday.

Baker has been with the team off and on after being the team's 7th Round draft pick in 2021. He had brief stints with the Packers and Eagles practice squads last season after serving a six-game suspension and was waived on Oct. 17 by the Saints. New Orleans ended...

Dennis Allen has the lowest winning percentage of all four NFC South coaches

The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms with Frank Reich on a contract making him their new head coach, and he arrives in the NFC South with the best winning percentage of all of his competition. Reich’s run with the Indianapolis Colts ended with a 3-5-1 record before his midseason dismissal, but he’s gone 40-33-1 in five years as a head coach, and his win percentage (.547) is higher than every other coach in the division.

There’s an argument that he’s already the best head coach in the NFC South. Here’s how Reich stacks up against New Orleans Saints coach Dennis Allen and the other...

It’s been a while since we’ve had two conference championship games this appealing and competitive.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 2½-point favorites against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs were a pick 'em contest in the AFC championship game until the line moved to Chiefs -1 on Thursday.

Taking into account home-field advantage, Vegas oddsmakers see both games as nearly even.

How good are these matchups?

The Eagles have won nine of their past 11 games, and they represent the “coldest” team in the final four.

Report: Sean Payton 'fears a potential power struggle' with Broncos ownership

The spiciest Sean Payton report so far comes to us from the Washington Post’s Mark Maske, who has an update on Payton’s negotiations with the Denver Broncos. Maske says Payton likes the football setup — coaching Russell Wilson, working with a talented defense — but there’s been a hitch in interviewing with the new Broncos ownership group, and that Payton “fears a potential power struggle” with one of the team’s owners.

Led by Walmart heir Rob Walton but managed day-to-day by his son-in-law Greg Penner and daughter Carrie Penner, the Broncos are owned by a group that includes Ariel...

There was reportedly 'an issue' between Sean Payton and the Broncos during his interview

Former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton began the week considered by many the favorite to be the next Denver Broncos head coach, but it appears differences between he and team ownership stand in the way of making that happen.

Payton, who has scheduled interviews with four NFL teams, is without one fewer option if he wants to coach in 2023 after the Carolina Panthers hired Frank Reich Thursday.

With no second interview scheduled yet with Denver, it appears less likely that he'll end up with the Broncos. He has also spoken with the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans.

Panthers won't hire Sean Payton, announce Frank Reich as their new head coach

The first domino has fallen in the 2023 NFL hiring cycle with the Carolina Panthers announcing Frank Reich as their new head coach on Thursday. This means several things for the New Orleans Saints — principally that they won’t be trading former head coach Sean Payton to Carolina, and that the Saints will not have a shot at acquiring the No. 9 overall pick in the 2023 draft.

This also means that New Orleans will be playing against Reich’s team twice a year while competing for the NFC South crown. And there’s an argument to be made that Reich is already the best head coach in the division...

NFL Network’s Jane Slater reports that the Dallas Cowboys ‘have had zero contact’ with the New Orleans Saints or Sean Payton while evaluating their coaching staff, and that head coach Mike McCarthy is believed to be returning for 2023 despite an embarrassing playoff exit last weekend. Rumors have linked Payton to the Cowboys for years — he’s still good friends with owner Jerry Jones, and it’s the last place he coached before coming to New Orleans — but it doesn’t sound like Dallas is looking to make an earth-shaking change in pursuit of Payton.

Not going to lie, this is a little...

Carolina has made the first head coach decision of this offseason’s hiring cycle, but is still searching for a franchise quarterback

Frank Reich will be introduced as the next coach of the Panthers, the team announced Thursday.

Reich, 61, was dismissed as the coach of the Colts late in the 2022 season, but compiled a 40-33-1 record over four-plus seasons with the franchise. Despite the shocking early retirement of Andrew Luck, Reich managed to keep the Colts in some degree of relevance year in and year out with a cavalcade of veteran options at the position, including Carson Wentz and a...

Will we see another exodus of talent from the New Orleans Saints this offseason? Last year they lost top free agents like left tackle Terron Armstead and free safety Marcus Williams, both of whom were ranked highly in the annual free agent rankings. A couple of their former teammates are listed in the early top-50 list from Pro Football Focus analyst Brad Spielberger, both of whom play along the defensive line: Marcus Davenport and David Onyemata.

There could be a lot of upheaval for the Saints defense up front. Davenport and Onyemata are joined on the list of pending free agents by Shy...

As of Tuesday night, word was circulating that the Broncos could make a decision as to their next head coach as soon as Wednesday. They quite possibly have.

Mike Klis of 9News.com reports that 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans has emerged as “a top candidate” for the job.

There’s a huge difference between “a top candidate” and “the top candidate.” Ryans and former Stanford coach David Shaw were the two primary names we heard earlier in the week.

Klis writes that “Broncos’ Chief Executive Officer and owner Greg Penner has spent the last few days regrouping with the other involved...

Woof. Look, it’s early, and logistically it makes sense. But it sure seems as if Sean Payton has not made the cut to the second round of interviews with several teams that were quick to meet with the former New Orleans Saints head coach.

Payton’s first meeting with the Arizona Cardinals is scheduled for Thursday, but he hasn’t penciled in any follow-up visits with the Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, or Denver Broncos at the time of writing. Each of those teams has brought back other candidates for their head coach vacancies, but none of them have scheduled a second interview with...

A new Pro Bowl ad features former NFL quarterback Eli Manning teaching New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis some flag football basics, with a little collateral damage to his brother Peyton’s tackling dummy. Eli will be coaching the NFC team against Payton’s AFC squad in the upcoming 2023 Pro Bowl Games, which will include a new flag football games. It will air on ESPN, ABC and Disney XD on Sunday, Feb. 5.

In the new ad, Eli is showing Davis how to “grip and rip” a flag from a tackling dummy with Peyton’s face printed on it — only for Davis to tear the entire dummy in half, quipping...

Here’s a new name for New Orleans Saints fans who are getting amped up for the 2023 NFL draft. Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee was linked to the Saints in the second round in a new mock draft from Luke Easterling over at Draft Wire, as the fifth of sixth passers going inside the top two rounds. What’s history?

McKee, who will turn 23 on April 27 (the first day of the 2023 draft, incidentally), started the last two years at Stanford and threw for 5,336 yards while completing 473 of his 748 attempts (a completion percentage of 63.2%) and scoring 28 touchdown passes while throwing 15...

Roach spoke with the players and ran a few drills with their new equipment.

Roach, who is from Baton Rouge, was an undrafted free agent and signed with the Saints in April 2020.
