I would have given it to Caldwell...first year coach, and the only reason his team doesn't go undefeated is because management didn't let them? Kidding me?
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.
If the Saints play like last night, they'll cruise to a championship. I would not mind giving it to Payton at all, but I think because of all the changes Indy went through in the Off Season, and how the expectations were, for them to do so well, you have to hand it to Caldwell.
But Marvin Lewis getting it is bs. If you ask me, the Bengals still under achieved this season as they have the talent to win 11+ games, and certainly to beat a rookie QB in the playoffs...come on.
