This has got to be on par with bringing in Sproles last year. I also just read that our DB coach is leaving for JVille. I imagine the "Spagonator" will want to bring in some of his on coaches from the Rams and possibly try and get a few of the Giants players to come over as well. I hear OSI is possibly a free agent this year. Man I never thought I would see the day when coaches and players where kicking in the door to play for the Saints. It is a great time to be a Saints fan and I am going to ride this train until it runs out of steam.

How Steve Spagnuolo fits with Saints

This is a big victory for the Saints because Im pretty sure Spagnuolo is the guy Sean Payton had targeted for this job, probably even before previous coordinator Gregg Williams left for St. Louis and a reunion with Jeff Fisher after the Saints lost in the playoffs.

If you want a picture of a Spagnuolo defense, dont think too much about the St. Louis team he had been the head coach of since 2009.

Think more of the New York Giants, when Spagnoulo was their defensive coordinator in 2007 and 08. The Giants won the Super Bowl in the 2007 season. Prior to that, Spagnoulo had a long run as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles, who played in four NFC Championship Games during his tenure. Spagnuolo worked for the Eagles from 1999 through 2006.

In short, his defense -- in theory -- is a lot like weve seen out of the Giants this postseason. It relies on a lot of pressure from the front four and not much blitzing. Spagnuolo prefers tall/angular cornerbacks that can play man-to-man coverage and also likes playmakers at safety.

No more days of 10+ yards off opposing wide receivers. Yippie! The return of press coverage and the bump and run!
