Last years defense was like watching slow death from a flesh wound - it stunk!
No matter how much I sugar coated it, that defense wasn't going to stop anyone.

When SP fired Spags, I actually felt relief.
If our defense can limit "big plays" to just every other week, it would be a huge improvement.
what never helped Spags defense is the fact that it never complimented the offense and vis versa. I was worried about Spags defense because it was so much like Gary Gibbs defense, the end result was............it was exactly like Gibbs defense which resulted in a 8-8 and 7-9 season.

When Rob Ryan came in, big part of his defense was to compliment the offense and vis versa. It worked today.

I dunno about Spags, I thought he was an elite DC, perhaps hes nothing more than a smoke and mirror guy that is no better than Gibbs.

Re: Saints defense beats the Falcons

Happy for our guys on D. No doubt about it. Happy for Ryan who's looking for redemption too.

It was great to win - even better to have the D play well and to end it the way they did.

Very proud for our D. What a great place to start!

Our defense played great. I was annoyed with our offense in having to settle for so many field goals. But we got the win and now we move on to the completely demoralized Buccaneers. LOL!

I was too worried about defense to worry about Hartley. Turns out I didn't need to sweat either.

Preseason is like going over a recipe for weeks... You dont know how the cake will turn out until you cook one in your oven with your ingredients.


Week 1 Cake made... Now we can start working on turnovers

Let's narrow the focus of this thread down a bit.

Kenny Vaccaro beat the Atlanta Falcons with ONE FINGER.

LOL

Did anyone else get this? I am not sure if, coming from England, this means the same thing.
