Re: Saints' Rob Ryan and Dennis Allen Are A Good Combo

Too many times last year, players were asked to execute multiple roles in an attempt to “confuse” the opposing offense, but instead did the opposite and confused the Saints defense.

Fundamentals like tackling became a lost art which Allen has seen to correct with even being spotted manning a tackling pad himself for instruction with the defensive back group on Thursday’s OTA’s.

While Ryan has the ideas that will hopefully get the Saints defense back on track, Allen will be there to sift through the ones that are doable and ones that most likely won’t be feasible.

The dynamic of having Ryan and Allen both essentially splitting defensive coordinator duties may seem a bit like overkill, but in the end they could prove to be just the right combination the defense needs in 2015……
My favorite part. On paper it does look like a good teaming. Lets just hope their egos don't clash in some sort of power struggle.

What a great thing it will be if they fix the Defense. I still wonder if they fixed the gutless team that quit on us last year. Was that all scheme and Rob Ryans fault? Doubtful.

Dennis Allen is my favorite off season addition. Ryan needed a handler!

IMO, Ryan's strength is X's and O's - NOT being the all-encompassing head coach of a defense.

I'll bet Ryan agrees Allen's "influence" will make his life easier and more successful one in New Orleans.

Allen will be to Ryan what Payton is to Carmichael.

I disagree about the X's and O'x part. I think he is more a players coach but that is it. There was all this hype last off-season about the new revamp D. Look was much like that of Seattle's Diamond / box coverage and we saw NONE of it. I wasn't impressed and well no one was impressed with him last year.

I think you may have made my point for me.

Ryan is good at drawing up plays and confusing offenses. Case in point - 2013

Ryan is not good at managing the lifecycle of a defense. Case in point - 2014
