Goal in St Louis - fix an entire defense

Goal in New Orleans - fix a few positions

Not all good coordinators are cut out for HC. But my money is on Spags having a more focused role. Especially on a championship caliber franchise.

I sure hope these guys can make a difference. I've been asking, and still haven't gotten a response, but we're not gonna have the ability to make a lot of moves this off season so if we haven't been able to generate a decent pass rush with the d-line coach we still have, or with the talent we had and have added to, how is Spags all of a sudden going to make this d-line and lb corps into a fearsome bunch?

I am hoping that we atleast get one good defensive guy from free agency. I am also hoping that the talent is here and just wasn't being utilized in a complex GW scheme. I would also agree though that our D line has always been booty and don't understand why that coach is still here. Maybe Spags can be the difference we need on the D line.

I've seen it being stated in various sources that Johnson is one of the best D-Line coaches in the league, but like you Mike said, it's not like the D-Line was bad just during GW's tenure, and Johnson hasn't been with the Saints longer than that.

He seems to had done a good job with the Failclowns D-Line back in 2001-06 and then with the Broncos D, but for some reason that hasn't translated into an increased effectiveness of the Saints' D-Line.

I'm hoping like you said Mike that it was GW's complicated schemes that held Johnson and the D-Line back and that they'll both be able to flourish working under Spags.

But who knows..? At least Spags didn't want to get rid of him (or couldn't) so that should count for something.

I trust him
And people have to remember, last year the Rams offense could not score with a prostitute. The defense was overworked

Their secondary was decimated by injuries last season, so I think coaching only helped them in that regard because they were fielding 3rd and 4th string guys as DBs.
