If you thought Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is on shaky ground professionally if the Saints D puts up another lackluster season, things aren't much better at home.

The newly constructed $2 million Uptown home Ryan bought shortly after he was hired by the Saints in 2013 is sinking, according to a lawsuit he and his wife filed against the developer, builder and an engineering firm Monday (Aug. 17).

"The builders fumbled the ball," said Randy Smith, Ryan's attorney. "And Rob Ryan, of all people, is not going to let it just sit on the ground."

The ground, the lawsuit claims, is shifting badly beneath Ryan's house, which wasn't built on pilings or sufficiently spaced footings despite New Orleans' notoriously soft soils, according to the document filed in Orleans Parish District Court. An engineer hired by the Ryans determined that key joists throughout the house also are overloaded.

What he do? Use outside contractors? Hard to believe a local contractor wouldn't understand the challenges of New Orleans being partially below sea level, on a delta, et...

Sucks, serious issues with the foundation and structure. Same issue with his home as well.

Is this the same attorney, named Randy Smith, that is representing Renee Benson for Rita against Tom Benson and his gold digger?!?

WOW! I'd like to hear that conversation around the water cooler in Saints HQ...

Just like his defenses which aren't built on a solid foundation either. Ironic isn't it?
