Uhhh... the Rams ranked in the top half of the league in sacks the past two years. Also, you don't think Spags had any part with developing those elite pass rushers in New York? They are also still running the same system.

So im talkin about the fan base as a whole.

Mike Nolans D with 8 rookies was ranked 10 last season.

What does this mean? I would expect you guys to be happy that you got a good DC but the statement was you didnt get the one you wanted.

Re: Atlanta game

Are you telling us that ALL falcon fans wanted Nolan? That's pretty amazing... (in a Stepford Wives kinda way)

So you pick a thread out of a different forum and you then make a generalization that the Saints fan base as a whole wanted your defensive coordinator? One thread in on a different board doesn't speak for the whole Saints nation.

There's a video in the NFL forums up top with a Atlanta fan showing his support for his city and team. That's like me making a generalization that all Atlanta fans are fair weathered.

Mike Nolans D with 8 rookies was ranked 10 last season.
That's awesome. No one said your defense sucks. So I don't understand what your point is? [/quote]

Our organization got exactly who we wanted. Spags was our front office's target and we got him. As far as the fans are concerned, some got their first choice, some got their second. Some got their third. I know for damn sure I got my first choice. And unless you can poll the entire Saints nation, you're just making a blanket assumption.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Atlanta game

Who cares who got who?

The Falcon fans are obviously happy with a 1 quarter look at their starting defense, let them be happy...

Re: Atlanta game

Exactly. What's the whole point of this conversation anyways?

"Haha! Some Saints fans didn't get their first choice at DC"

You want a cookie?

Re: Atlanta game

I imagine for every fan who wanted Nolan, their was 10 who wanted Spags.
