Three weeks ago, the Saints wrapped up their final minicamp workout and scattered into summer break, cautiously optimistic about the offseason changes made to their overhauled defense.

But there were no big, sweeping predictions, and there likely will be none three weeks from now when New Orleans opens training camp in West Virginia.

Big expectations last summer spiraled into a 31st-place finish in total defense a year ago, and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan spent the summer fighting the urge to predict any kind of wild turnaround in his third year in New Orleans.

“The thing is, we did a lot of talking last year and got our butts kicked,” Ryan said. “So I know we’ll be great, but we’ll just prove it this year.”

I think he knows what he's doing but he's not a good motivator. Maybe we have those pushers now after overhauling staff. If we see low intensity in preseason though I think it will be more of the same.

Quietly and confident is so much better than bragging.

Re: Saints defense quietly optimistic going into training camp

Shamed and pi$$ed off would be better than quietly optomistic. If this seasons D gets spanked like last seasons D, fire the entire D staff and start over!! I want to see a good D, doesn't have to be great( I'll take a great D though) but in the teens should do.
