On Tuesday, Sean Payton shocked the NFL world when he announced that he would be leaving as head coach of New Orleans Saints.
Although rumors are circulating about Payton’s future plans, and his close ties with the Jones family of Dallas Cowboys players, they’re purely speculation at this point.
But on Wednesday, one of the biggest legends in Cowboys’ franchise history chimed in on Sean Payton as an upgrade over Mike McCarthy in Dallas.
“Here’s the difference you have to understand that I believe puts Sean Payton above all things,” Irvin stated on 105.3 The Fan.
” Look at the success that Sean Payton had without his best players, without Michael Thomas, without Drew Brees, he still keeps them competitive. They beat the champs twice this year without his best players! That’s what we’re talking about!”
Irvin gave an honest but harsh assessment of the Cowboys’ current coaching staff, while continuing to praise the former Saints’ coach.
Irvin said, “Without our top players, we lost every darned game.”
“That’s just reality. We lost every darn game. I had a stuffed animal on the show as an emotional support doll! Are you joking? That’s what I’m talking about!”
It was clear by the end of the rant how Irvin felt about Payton vs. McCarthy in regards to head coaches.
“Sean Payton, an upgrade. “I’m going to be real.”
