The Tape Never Lies: Blitzing Louisiana with Steve Spagnuolo




It’s been a tumultuous off-season for the New Orleans Saints to say the least. A bounty scandal rocked the franchise leading to multiple suspensions – most notably middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams – and costly fines. However, in the midst of all the negativity, there was one significant positive: hiring former St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo as the new defensive coordinator. Spagnuolo is a very aggressive defensive mastermind whose defensive concepts, such as “sugaring” the interior gaps, can be traced back to his mentor, the late Jim Johnson.

X's and O's instead of hexes and woes. I'm ready for some football.

Just hold teams to 20 or less.
One touchdown and one field goal each half.
Getting a turnover or two would be a plus.
I think the offense can do the rest.
Fundamental tackling goes a long way.
