Should Sean Payton remain the Saints playcaller?

In some circles of the Saints fanbase I don’t think there was a more controversial figure this year than the man at the top: Sean Payton. Many members of the Saints Blogo-sphere, some ‘legit’ and some not, questioned whether coach Payton still had ‘it’ and whether or not he should still be in charge of play calling duties.
