What did Ryan learn in Dallas?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; God I just hope he can teach them to tackle. We had a lot of big plays against us because of poor tackling. Flopping in front of a ball carrier doesn't usually bring them down......unless they trip!...

True Dat.

And then there was positioning, with our unique lets stand off by several yards defense

I'd rather have the guy who's ready to prove himself.

I would rather have the guy that has shown he has already learned from his mistakes, and exhibited the result from his learning.

Someone proven.

I would also rather a guy that can anticipate mistakes happening and take corrective action BEFORE they happen. This is called adjusting on the fly, EG. Sean Payton.

That reminds me of 2007/08 when folks were ready to jettison Sean Payton.

Ryan was a damn good DC in Dallas IMO. He was made the scapegoat by a team that, let's face it, won't be accused of making the most rational decisions.

You wanted an installer - you've got one.

You wanted aggressive - you've got one.

Look all the things that the media is bagging on Ryan for is exactly what his players - his ALPHA MALE players - love and revel about him.

Perfection? No. But I do expect to see a dramatic improvement.

Spot on. I think this offense is a perfect match for an agressive attacking risk taking defense, and its apparent thats exactly what we're still shooting for. We still need a few playmakers sprinkled in but the roux is ready to go.

Clearly what Payton wants. Why else would he go out and hire "GW Light"?

I just want a defense good enough to where people are concerned about them.
Our offense will take care of the rest and make it look even worse.
Remember we just need to keep people under 28 points a game. Not hard having the best offense around

We need more than that. Pressure sacks, coverage sacks, tackling, interceptions... All these have been glaringly missing from our defense for years.
