Coming clean- anyone else?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I didn't mind the signing, but had you told me we would be in the top half of total defense I would have said someone was smoking crack....

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

Will Smith at LB had me fuming. Once I read that I thought for sure another season of a porous defense. Then I dug up stats of teams with a new DC, less than 20% made the playoffs. Smith never manifested on the field and low and behold we beat the stats. I was wrong but my reasoning was right.

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

At the beginning of the season, I watched a "Bold Predictions" segment. Not much of it was memorable, but I do recall one bold statement.

Warren Sapp said he thinks that Rob Ryan will bring "it" back to our Defense this year. He boldly stated that New Orleans would go from worst to first. He then reiterated by saying that he thinks we will have a top 5 overall defense.
He was slightly ridiculed for it, but hey, that's what the bold predictions are for.

Thanks for being psychic, Warren.

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

I was a pretty big rob Ryan fan from back when he was in Cleveland. When he used the entire D-line standing up to confuse Drew, I was highly impressed. Their defense pulled quite the upset that day.

Rob was a scapegoat for dallas, as many before him were. I knew this system would be good. I just didn't expect it to be this effective without us even having the ideal roster for 3-4.
Granted we rarely line up in 3-4. Hehe

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

Well saints fans.. I jumped for joy i knew r d was gonna improve a whole lot,but never this much.. I know players love playing for the Ryan's. I just felt like r d would get on the train quick.. Also greg williams trys to be like the ryans.. So to actullay have a ryan was gonna be awesome.. Spags scheme was the worst match possible.. I love rob ryan.. I just hope no other team loves him more

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

I was one that liked thye Spags hiring the liked it twice as much when Payton fired him. Then we were going from the 4-3 to a 3-4 and was estatic, when Ryan was hired I was o.k. with it but I thought he would get our D around the 19th ranking range( no where to go but, up, right) but he has blown my expectations out of the water, if there is a DC of the year the man deserves it hands down. Great job!!

Re: Coming clean- anyone else?

Can a coordinator win Coach of the Year? If so, Rob has my vote. Pete Carroll is a close second.
