He's done a nice job there, but I wouldn't give it to him because he is a first year coach following decisions made that made the Colts successful. Payton went to his boss, told him to take a quarter of a million of his salary and add it to the offer they gave Greg Williams to coach his defense. He then hired Greg Williams son as a coach, and then went back to him with the new offer/incentives.
The Saints always had offense, but now they have a complimentary defense. I would not be surprised to see them as Super Bowl champions.
