Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to keep an eye on for your Wednesday morning.

Sean Payton a possible TC replacement?

With Giants head coach Tom Coughlin up in the air, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton could be a name to watch if New York decides to pull the plug with Coughlin. Payton coached with the Giants from 1999-2002 and was the offensive coordinator on the 2000 Super Bowl squad. In 2009, he won the Super Bowl with the Saints. However, New Orleans has struggled the past few seasons, and Bountygate -- for which Payton was suspended -- sheds a bad light on his reputation.

He’s very close to Bill Parcells. Payton won the Super Bowl with the Saints in 2009 and is considered a state-of-the-art offensive coach. He has two years at $8 million per year left on his deal, just finished building a house in New Orleans and recently said, "I see myself coaching this team long past this season," although that will change if the Saints don’t want him back. The Dolphins and Colts could be interested. The Saints surely will be looking for compensation.

What say you, Giants fans?
