New Orleans Saints players applaud the hiring of Rob Ryan

Ryan's 3-4 defense is an attacking-style defense that places an emphasis on putting pressure on the quarterback.

Some of the Saints' defenders will be somewhat familiar with a few of Ryan's defensive principles, as former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams sometimes employed similar defensive play calls, Jordan said.

In Ryan's two seasons in Dallas both of the Cowboys' outside linebackers flourished with Demarcus Ware (31 sacks) and Anthony Spencer (17) combining for 48 sacks. Such news should make the Saints' situational outside rushers Junior Galette and Martez Wilson, who have combined for just 13 sacks the past two seasons, happy.

"The 3-4 is what I ran in college and it's something similar to we ran with coach Gregg Williams," Jordan said. Hopefully it won't be that hard to transition from the 4-3 to the 3-4. It sounds like what I have been doing.

"It's a blitzing, attacking system, which will be fun. I think it suits me. Without a doubt (Galette and Wilson) will be the most excited about the situation. As long as everybody is on the same page I can't see why this wouldn't be a great fit for us."

Some of this sounds more like a slap at Spags than it does embracing Ryan.

Lets hope he can get our D to even an average level, maybe our defense needs a shouty get in your face kind of coach, GW brought an attitude to our D in 2009 and we played nasty
We looked scared of everyone on defense last year, maybe rob ryan will bring that aggressive hard hitting D to us

Vilma needs not to say anything, his days are # in a Saints uniform along with a few others that should have been gone a few years ago. It's going to get interesting in the days to come!!

Didn't Vilma struggle in the 3-4 defense when he was with the Jets?

Here's to hoping that the shift to the 3-4 elevates Wilson and Galette's game to the levels of the Von Miller/Elvis Dumervil duo. I could see it happening. It's not out of the realm of possibility.

I can see Wilson becoming pro-bowl caliber in the 3-4...

Galette, not so much...
