Gruden wasn't anywhere as close to good as an announcer on TV as many think. He got that reputation at ESPN because he was slightly better than the other color guys they had at the time and they were horrible. The Best Play by play gut the had was Tirico and they let him get away to NBC. He is replacing Michaels for the Sunday games next year.Great interview. I see Sean really excited about the TV gig.
He can be the next Jimmy Johnson or Jon Gruden.
And another interesting angle, being on a national TV show will keep Sean a national profile and people may discover him and add or change to their perspective of him. Being on TV will increase his chances of getting to the Hall of Fame, that is free advertising for him. He could turn from a great NFL coach to a national figure.
This could be quite pertinent in an individual who keeps his type of schedule. In addition to those fatigue and cognitive issues you mentioned I’ve seen people with the expected pulmonary issues but also cardiac problems particularly arrhythmia and disrupted sleep patterns.There's a possibility it's long COVID related. He's been infected twice. He was symptomatic the second time.
I personally know a few people that were infected in spring and summer of 2020 who are still suffering from constant physical fatigue, difficulty focusing, concentrating and thinking clearly.
If he's dealing with any of that, it would be difficult to be the head coach for an entire off season and season.
It's old hat. The Cowboys have been trying to poach Payton for years. He has a history with them. We've got a lot of history with them as Saints fans. Hardly new or surprising.Then why the sudden obsession with them. Everyone is so afraid that they’re being spurned for them that they aren’t even properly honoring CSPs time here. So much vitriol for something y’all made up in your head.
Well, none of the current vacancies are gonna matter to Payton. He's already said he most likely not going to coach in 22 anyway. If the Cowboys have another disappointing season next year, you know they'll be howling for Payton then. The media have tried to stir up the Payton to Cowboys rumors every. single. year.You’d think there would be discussion of him going to teams with actual vacancies, but there isn’t. It’s all Cowboys.
It's really not obsession. It's fun offseason banter. If you take it seriously, you're doing it wrong.He worked there for 3 years and here for 16 years. He chose to leave there for here. Outside of a handful of media reports at the beginning of every other offseason, there has been nothing to it. I don’t get the obsession.
Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you were referring to Saints fans. Carry on then.Believe me, I’m all about offseason banter and participate in it. It’s the Cowboys element on SSF that I don’t understand one bit. I could understand if they were part of the old NFC West or something, but they weren’t.
