Bill Parcells, New Orleans Saints Continue Sniffing Around Each Other

So: Bill Parcells and the New Orleans Saints continue to slink around the idea that the Big Tuna might serve as interim head coach while the smaller tuna, Sean Payton, serves a one-year suspension for perpetuating the abhorrent bounty system of current St. Louis Rams defensive-coordinator-in-exile Gregg Williams. This will be great, because Payton learned everything he knows from Parcells, including maintaining plausible deniability while perpetuating abhorrent bounty systems.

This has been weird, as NFL rumors go—the Saints and Parcells have never really denied anything, but no news has broken, so we keep going back and forth between "they're talking, and it's going to happen" and "sure, they're talking, but it probably won't happen," without even the guidance of an anonymous source.

Meanwhile, the Rams don't plan to replace Gregg Williams with much of anything, which has to be doing terrible (and probably well-deserved) things to his self-esteem. I've heard that, instead of paying players to injure other players, the Rams plan to pay every player this year a pre-defined salary, based on his performance and service time.
