Ok, so CSP had to make a playbook for Taysom and then a simplified playbook for Teddy. Now, we have Winston and he will get a different playbook. If CSP can make this work and the Saints continue to succeed, I think this would make CSP the greatest coach ever. If we never skip a beat when Drew retires, CSP will be called the greatest coach IMO.

I know we have talent, but taking each of their skillets and designing the plays that he comes up with is pretty amazing. No one expected the output of what Taysom put on the field. Teddy was very good before his injury and didn't make it on teams he should have. I personally think CSP helped Teddy turn it around, at least here in New Orleans. Now, with Winston, we know he has more INT than TDs. If CSP can clean that up, we have our next QB for a good while. Once Drew retires and hopefully can work on a part time assisting job with the Saints; we will have the greatest duos to help our future QBs succeed.

Simplified for Teddy? What makes you say that? He was on the team more than a year before his first start and he is a traditional QB. It was the same playbook but Teddy might not have got the "it's your call Drew version".

i think simplified is just a poor choice. But it was definitely a more old school calling of games. Whether it was done for Teddy or others. And Sean gets credit, they were extremely well called games. And some time after the first two weeks Teddys confidence went way up because of it.

You think that Teddy was running the same play-calling, same progressions as Drew Brees?

It's not a knock on Teddy. Sean is going to revise a game plan and calls plays according to each QBs strengths. That's what good coaches do. The coaches that use the same play-calling, run the same plays with different players don't coach the same.te for a decade. In fact, they don't usually coach for very long at all.

We’ll have the right playbook to make Winston look like an asset that we can either trade or use this season.

Fair enough. I can agree it was based around what Teddy was good at but I don't think it was simplified. There is a lot of loaded language being thrown around. Obviously, no one got the same freedom to change plays as Drew.

The offense is not changing under any quarterback, Hill has to execute the offense that's been tops in the league for more than a decade with the additional schemes Payton may add to get the most out of Hills athleticism.

People have to remember we have a 90-100 catch receiver in Micheal Thomas who still needs to be fed and a running back in Alvin Kamara that's a 700 rushing and 700 receiving back (60-80 catches a year) and Cooks caught 50 catches last season and the addition of Trautman and Saunders this offense and players are not about to take a backseat so Hill can run his QB draws, Hill has to have a firm grasp of the passing offense which is why Bridgewater was signed and subsequently why Winston is being signed because these guys are capable of executing the offense if something happens to Brees which is something Payton does not feel Hill is ready for at the moment.

Come on man...

Belichick:
- 17 AFC East titles
- 13 AFC Championship appearances
- 9 Super Bowl appearances
- 6 Super Bowl wins

CSP:
- 6 NFC South titles
- 3 NFC Championship appearances
- 1 Super Bowl appearance
- 1 Super Bowl win

CSP is a great coach, but he's not even in the vicinity of top 10. Perhaps he'll climb that ladder into the top 10-15 before all is said and done, but he has a LONG way to go. Now in terms of offensive minds, he's probably top 5 all time.
