He will fit well and still be a tackling machine! Always has been ... always will be.

Oh and in all honesty.....I think facing a 3-4 everyday in practice...the one defensive scheme Brees struggles with every year...is going to do nothing but make him better.....and thats scary if you think about how good he already is....

Re: SAINTS HIRE RYAN AS DC

People comparing him to Williams like it's a bad thing. The Saints WON A SUPERBOWL with Williams as DC. Yeah, now we have the whole bountygate, but, still have a Lombardi trophy.

Our defense doesn't need to be top 5. Just needs to hold the other teams to 20 a game and get a few turnovers. Ryan can do that.

I could see us drafting Jenkins from UGA at 15.
I hope not, I don't really like Jenkins. Id rather his teammate Kwame Geathers in the 3rd and pick up a vet through FA.

Re: SAINTS HIRE RYAN AS DC

I am not a huge fan of the move...but it is not because of his coaching ability it is solely based on his demeanor. To counter that he is with the correct team because Sean is not going to tolerate shenanigans and will temper him. I just hope Ryan is able to accept the scoldings and stay focused on his job.

Re: SAINTS HIRE RYAN AS DC

I'm down with it. Ryan is a good coach. I think history shows that. In my heart I believe our problems last year were coaching related - specifically Spags flat out refusal to adjust to the players he had on the roster.

Ryan is a passionate guy. A colorful guy. Personally I think he's going to fit in well and I think we're going to see marked improvement. In fact I think we'd see marked improvement even if we didn't change a single player on the defensive roster.

Color me excited.
