Some stats say New Orleans Saints defense is worst in NFL since

The New Orleans Saints defense looked like it might be turning a corner in the midst of a three-game winning streak.

But when the injury-riddled defense failed to stop the struggling Tennessee Titans and rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota last Sunday, optimism was more difficult to muster.

Through nine games, the Saints defense is allowing about 6.5 yards per play, the second-worst mark in post-merger NFL history, according to Pro Football Reference. The only team to do worse through the opening nine games? The 2012 Saints.

Rob Ryan defenders please tell me again why he shouldn't be fired?

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

And you most likely thought Brees was the only one breaking records.

Yep, defense is a hot mess. Our youngest squad with most potential but bottom dwelling in 2015.

Re: Some stats say New Orleans Saints defense is worst in NFL since

When you can't get off the field on 3rd down, drives continue and this'll happen. We have a 1st down machine lined up on defense for us.

All the opposing DC & QB has to do is press #39 & it's pretty much automatic.

It's demoralizing.

um Id wager a years pay that if you took all the stats from all other NFL teams Defenses from 2006-2015 we would be ranked 31-32 easy in that enire span of time. Only reason we ever looked good was Drew Brees, and one year of lucky turnovers.

Halfway through the Titans game, I said to myself, 'Id take a loss, if it led to dumping RR'.

But nothing happens...
