Why he was 4rth with this crew last year, I don't get why it is the guys around him all of a sudden. I gave him credit for our performance last year why can't give him credit for this season?

I'm not sure Ryan is able to coordinate a defense with sustainable success. New Orleans is his fourth attempt, and there's enough evidence to believe he is what he is. Ryan runs exotic schemes and because of that, he can often get success and even shut down top offenses. His problems are these: 1. If he suffers injuries on the defensive side, new players have trouble coming in and learning all the exotic looks and schemes. This leads to confusion and big plays being given up. The years his defenses have played well, they had health.
2. His crazy schemes also require players to be very versatile. If an offense can figure him out, they can exploit it when he tries to send a d-lineman into coverage or use corners and safeties to play the run.
3. Ryan is more a motivator and relies on his position coaches to do the teaching. His players love to play for him, but often his defensive players show inconsistent technique. Also, because players are asked to do multiple jobs, they often do not get enough reps in technique.
4. Schemes can often be too complicated for players not willing to put in the time.
All this leads me to believe that relying on Ryan to run a defense is playing with poison. It could work out, but it also could produce atrocious results as it did this season.

He might even bring Patrick Willis with him. They have Bowman and Borland and Willis' cap hit goes up five million dollars as compared to last year. Can you imagine Willis and Lofton on the same field? We could play 3-2-6 or 4-2-5 every single down.

Slow down for a minute. Even if the 49ers let Willis go (they won't), the amount he would get on the open market would exceed anything the Saints would have to offer in cap space.

Ahmad Brooks aka Brees killer will be on the market as well. This guy is still a big time play maker and is an upgrade over any LB on our roster.

Any suggestions on how to pay them? We already have cap issues!

The Cap issues will probably doom us again I'm afraid!
