You are right. No one should get off easy this year!

Don't read your own press clippings, and believe them.

I think Kool-Aid gets a bad rap. It's inexpensive, easy to make, has a good variety of flavours, appeals to a wide customer base and frankly, is pretty gosh darn delicious ... I like the green, .

Best of luck with your self-examination, RR ... be a leader of men & men will follow, be a friend to boys & they'll get out of hand on ya' every time ... bet.

Re: Rob Ryan: Saints ‘drank the Kool-Aid a little bit too much’

question is who allowed the kool aid to be poured in the first place ???? Rob???

this is a round about way of sharing the blame for not doing your job as a coach.

whats the next excuse?

just stand up already and say what we all know is true. you did not do your job. it is that simple

Re: Rob Ryan: Saints ‘drank the Kool-Aid a little bit too much’

We as fans all drank it as well. I didn't see anyone on here or anywhere saying we would return to the bottom of the league defensively. We all thought with the addition of Byrd that we would be as good or better than 2014 defensively. And I 100% agree it was Ryan's job to focus the players, identify the lack of attention, effort and overconfidence and right that ship long before it had completely sunk.

We have problems and deficiencies on both sides of the ball. And yes Drew is not the same guy he was a couple years ago. His abilities are declining and will continue to do so. But he is still a top 10 QB if not better, and if our offense can be modified to where him managing a game can achieve a win rather than require him to be flawless to get one then we can still be a competitive team in this league and we can still be a playoff caliber team.

I have no issue with Rob Ryan returning, be he and the players must commit to another 180 of this disaster.

Even more frightening is the fact that, even though Drew acknowledged that they were a problem, no adjustment was made over the course of the season to curb the INTs. That leads me to believe that either:

1) Drew could have changed his game, but chose not to because he thought he had to take chances to win.

or

2) He tried to change his game but the result was just more interceptions.

Sadly, neither of these conclusions spell good things for Drew and the future.

Also, it seems like our DCs always get the most out of our team in their first year on-board. Maybe we should just hire a new DC every year?
