Steve Spagnuolo. The new defensive coordinator is putting in a whole new defensive system. Previous coordinator Gregg Williams was noted for his exotic blitz packages. Spagnuolo is known for taking a more conventional approach. He likes to get most of his pressure from the front four and let the back seven focus on pass coverage.

I think the Saints have made some very nice moves adding linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne and thereís some talent in the secondary with Jabari Greer, Patrick Robinson and Malcolm Jenkins. But strong safety Roman Harper isnít known for his coverage skills. Harperís had a lot of success as a blitzer. Iím curious to see if Spaguolo will try to make Harper fit into his scheme or if heíll allow Harper to continue to do what he does best.

Iím thinking Spagnuolo might be wise to bend on this one a little bit because Harperís ability on the blitz could help a front four that needs plenty of help.

Full read.

Dline obviously. Safety play. It will be interesting to see what Spags does with Harper.

Yea it's going to be fun to watch I hope. Maybe they can give Harper some of that black tar stuff they used in Baseball at one time don't think its banned in the NFL yet.

Harper could be used like the Steelers do with Polimlu or how to spell it. A Rover.

Use your players strengths and hide their weaknesses. The only other option is to get new players.
