Saints' head coach Jim Haslett not only expects to retain his job through next season, he also intends to ask team owner Tom Benson for more power, according to ESPN reporter Len Pasquarelli. Haslett has been voicing his frustrations over what he perceives as a lack of support from Saints' general manager Mickey Loomis, and plans to fight for more power within the organization.
Just a few weeks ago, Haslett appeared to be on his way out of New Orleans. However, he rallied the team to an 8-8 record and led them to a four-game winning streak to close the season, which nearly resulted in a playoff berth. Apparently, Benson is content with mediocrity and will stick with Haslett next season, although it will be interesting to see who wins this power struggle.
Im going to cry if he gets more power. I have Deuce in my money keeper league and Haslett, the play calling, and A. Brooks absolutely kill Deuce's value. Not to mention the most pathetic defense I have ever seen.
Something needs to change in NO, Haslett obviously isnt the answer there, what the heck are they thinking?
perhaps Ill keep Tatum Bell over Deuce (or not)
