Re: Shouldve hired Del Rio

I said it before, and I still stand by it with fervor: hiring Spags to be the DC was the best offseason move the Saints' FO made this year.

It's crazy to condemn the man and his scheme based on one game, which was the season opener and the first time they presumably had their whole defensive playbook in use. And never mind the emotional turmoil many of these guys were going through because of all the things that have gone on in the offseason, and how that might've manifested in missed assignments and tackles on the field.

Also, going against a QB like RG3 was always going to be very difficult from a gameplanning standpoint, because you really didn't have any "real" tape on him yet - it'll be much easier for other teams after what they saw in this game. And for those who said that Spags didn't make any adjustments, I think that is bull. They made adjustments, but it was very difficult to keep up with the 'Skins's offense , because the Shanahans had created a very good gameplan against the Saints' D in that they pretty much did completely different things during their first three possessions. That made it really hard for the Saints D, because they were worn out fairly quickly trying to play catch-up almost the whole game through.

And I agree with what some others already said about the "problem" being more with the personnel than the scheme itself. Because if you look at the position where the Saints/Spags were able to make the most moves this offseason, in the LB corps, they seemed like the most solid bunch out there out of the d personnel. It'll take a while for the guys to really learn how to play within the scheme and suppress their old habits, but in the end, I think that we'll see a much improved Saints' D this season. Improving on the tackling will go a long way in assuring the Saints' D will have a better outing in the next game.

We made a frickin ROOKIE IN HIS FIRST GAME look like a prennial All-Pro. And BTW, what kind of idiotic question is that asking me if I can guarantee the outcome? Only Joe Namath can do that.
I'm sorry you are correct. You are entitled to make idiotic comments and I also have the right to point out out stupid and irrational it is after one game. So you just keep posting your crap... and I'll just keep pointing it out. But as the quality of your post deteriorate, your presence here may wear on this board.

No, I'm the one that's sorry. I didn't realize that you had been promoted to Forum Quality Control. Obviously, the ability to voice an opposite opinion without being ugly or mature is not a pre-requisite. Good luck with that.

Well now that you do, you're now a leg up from yesterday. The more informed you are, the better off you'll be.

On that note, nothing wrong with a difference in opinion. As long as there's rationale and logic behind it, preach on. Love to hear it. There's nothing I like more than to get in on a good debate. On the other hand, all the dooms day, whiny, jumping the gun, sky is falling crap isn't. If you want to continue on that road, I suggest you take it somewhere else.

I can stand Falcon/Bear/Panther/etc. trolls because that's expected. The one thing I absolutely cannot stand is a Saints troll. You keep that in mind as you continue to cry yourself a river and post.

This garbage thread is done.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.
