Cliff notes from other thread..
M&M: Do you have a different perspective stepping away?
CSP: Talked to Parcells. Watch more TV tape. Appreciate how special the job is. Missed the relationships more than anything else.
M&M: What was first order of business?
CSP: going to Sr Bowl and catching up with staff. Need to fix defense. Evaluate team and grade where we are at and figuring out cap.
CSP: Gonna bring in 3 or 4 candidates. Rob Ryan is one of them. Need permission from other teams for position coaches and waiting on that. Should have a decision in a week.
M&M: What's the legacy of the bounty gate?
CSP: We built this organization. Built on character, toughness and intelligence. Need to make good decisions and its hard to do the right things all the time in this city. The penalties are unprecedented, that will stand out. Shouldn't tarnish this team.
M&M: Players won appeal. Why did you accept without protest?
CSP: Players have union and CBA. I didn't have any real recourse. Followed proceedings.
M&M: Brees said he's ready to move on but he's angry. Are you angry?
CSP: Yeah, but I can't be angry for 8 months w/o going crazy, so I'm ready to move on. Players need to move on too. Need to focus and win games. Anger can be counter productive.
