The past two years make me think 2009 was the Darren Sharper defense and not the Gregg Williams one.

Plus I think his scheme was fresh at that point, then everyone in the NFL figured out we could not get pressure without sending the house, and that's what we did upwards of 50% of the time.

I'm sure a lot of angry fans after that playoff lose helped him too.

The funny thing is that I thought Rogers and Franklin were just those two guys before the season started, and that the added attention to those guys would free up Ellis to have a career year - how wrong was I?!

After 2 years of playoff losses in dramatic fashion and the way the D regressed it was time for a change. I could not imagine what our D would be like this year if he did not leave.

LoL at ya'll comments.

We will never know. ..who said what to whom, what really happened or could this what GWilliams said be real the truth and nothing but the truth.

It turned out good for GWilliams that he had a great exit from the Saints and a great entrance to St.Louis Rams.
Talk about perfect timing.

I wish there was a perfect timing for something forn the Saints this month, nah, I won't go there.
We are over "it."

What do you mean we won't know what happened.

There was no contract offer from the Saints to GW. There was no talk most of the season about one and GW isn't totally dumb... he knows what that means.

Fired.

You don't get a contract offer and you don't have a job its essentially beign fired.

Or is that the subtle difference between being "let go" and being "fired?"
