As a head coach absalutely he has issues, but as a defensive coordinator he was very good.

Not sold on him either as DC... not sure he was respected as a coach by the players based on how the Whiners have flourished after him.

Read Smashes reply below yours. It's not his ability I question. It's his leadership. Leading the defense requires that or you have a revolt at the end of the year... Que ~ anonymous player saying Spags needed to go.

Whoever our new DC is, I'm sure Sean will pick the right guy

They've done it mostly on the shoulders of their great defense, and Singletary was key part in drafting many of those players who make up the core of that defensive unit today - exactly what the Saints need at the moment.


And as far as I know, there haven't been any incidents between him and the players or other staff members at Minnesota, in fact pretty much the opposite.

Exactly, it's no coincident that the Vikings defense got much better when he joined the staff.

My point is this defense needs a defensive coordinator who is goona put a foot in some azzes. Not one who is looking to be loved.

Re: How about Mike Singletary?

Vikings #2 in defense...
Minnesota Vikings Team Page at NFL.com
But they sucked against the pass, relatively speaking.
Singletary was not a DC.....just a LB coach ... Minnesota Vikings | Coaches
So, just how much credit he is due remains in question. Maybe the ACTUAL DC, Alan Williams? How does that translate into a viable DC for us?
