Jim Mora established the first winning culture here way before Payton. Ditka destroyed that. There is no way that Mickey will give up the rights to Payton for a 2nd or less. If so, he should be immediately fired. As stated above by another poster, Hall of Fame coaches don't come on the market often. So when they do they can the team holding their rights can ask a fortune. If a team can spend a lot of draft picks for a player, they will do it for a coach that will be there for a while. The two 1's and 2 2's is a fair asking price. Especially if the team wanting him is already stacked and just needs a high caliber coach. I doubt Coach will come back to coach a bad team. He may if he was a lot younger but he is too old to do a major rebuild.
You think the one Super Bowl out of 16 years with Brees is enough to get Payton into the hall? I think he needs another. And I think that’s part of the reason he would consider coming back and why it needs to be the right situation.
