The players certainly don't get a pass...hustle, Tackling 101, and discipline helps quite a bit.

But RR is the one at the top that puts those players in positions to succeed/fail. He organizes that defense...maybe? I honestly have no idea if you could call 130 points given up in 3 games an 'organized' NFL defense...

What does he even talk about during halftime? "What did y'all do last night?...can y'all believe they have almost 400 yards on us already?" I mean, seriously?
RR during halftime was asking if could get a few crab-cake sandwiches before the plane leaves.

That stat alone should get you fired at this level.

His goose is cooked.

Interesting thought.

However, if this is the case, if intentional or subliminal, I call for releasing SP.

We are broken. The NFL is broken.

Re: Black Monday

In Fantasy, I picked up a new TE.

This is when it hit home, I picked the player because MY SAINTS give up points to TE's.

That was my moment of truth.

Now, how many other NFL fans are enduring this conversation with their teams?

And WHAT IS KEVIN GREENE doing these days (since he left GRB coaching staff / Dom Capers)?

Re: Black Monday

Just about every NOLA reporter I follow say that sources tell Fox Sports that Rob Ryan to be fired today. Hate to see someone loose their job but it's been time to part ways

Re: Black Monday

I don't like laying all this at Rob Ryan's feet - to do so is a mistake...

Problem is still in-house with the organization...

We stated we were changing personnel, base front and after drafting:

NT John Jenkins (Two picks to get him)
OLB Ronald Powell (Drafted, since released)
OLB Parys Halralson (Signed, Tried to convert him to DE, should have saved the trouble and just cut him)
OLB Stephone Anthony (Drafted, Prototype 3-4 ILB, Outstanding Player, Got him running sideline-to-sideline as a 4-3 MLB)
OLB Hau'oli Kikaha (Drafted, Outstanding Player, Looked Even Better in 3-4 front in preseason)
LB Dannel Ellerbe (Signed, Best years were in a 3-4 front)

So WTF did we switch back to a 4-3 this season?!?

Rob Ryan was brought in to install a 3-4 and yet we have a NT lose 50+ pounds (Jenkins) to play a 3-tech?!?

Why did we sign Williams, who, at his age should be standing off the edge as a 3-4 DE/DT and we're counting on him as a pass rusher?!?

Defensive Decisions by committee are why we are where we are on defense and this team is sucking big time...

Only reason why I want to see Ryan go is so we can see the problem will still be there and they'll be no hiding it...

Entire Defensive Staff must go, though I'd give the secondary another shot because you can't expect them to cover with no, none, pass rush...

Unless, of course, they recommended signing Browner, then they'd have to go with the other kids...

Re: Black Monday

Problems can't be fixed until Allen, Vitt and Johnson are gone. It's time for Payton's buddies to go and get some real coaching in here
