Saints fire Rob Ryan following defensive meltdown - NFL.com
In news that will disappoint fans of long hair, wild passion and small New Orleans dive bars everywhere, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has been let go, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the decision.

Ryan, after amassing the No. 4 defense in football back in 2013, embarked on a quest to create the league's most versatile secondary. The Saints inked Jairus Byrd to a lucrative six-year, $54 million deal back in 2014 and handed Brandon Browner a three-year deal in free agency this year, adding him to the mix with first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro at safety.

What ensued, though, was a 2014 where New Orleans ended up with the league's 31st-ranked defense. In 2015, they are dead last.


Sunday's blowout 47-14 loss appeared to be the catalyst. After giving up 324 yards and four touchdowns to Kirk Cousins, the Saints became the first team in NFL history to allow four touchdown passes and no interceptions three weeks in a row (Eli Manning, Marcus Mariota and Cousins). The Saints lost two of those three games.

Though the casual fan will immediately revert to the Rob is overrated and just riding the coattails of his brother and dad refrain, it's important to note that he did have a top-five defense in New Orleans before he was asked to compress his playbook. Ryan was coaching a scheme that was not traditionally his own with a rotating cast of injured players and certain free agents that did not necessarily fit the scheme.

Still, good defensive coordinators are versatile.

Ryan fell victim to a veteran defensive staff that includes Dennis Allen, a former defensive coordinator and head coach, and Joe Vitt, a long-time defensive position coach and former Saints interim head coach. With the bye week immediately following the loss to Washington, Ryan's fate was probably stamped at halftime because the transition would be relatively simple.

Payton would not comment on any firings after the game Sunday but he didn't exactly rule it out either. Earlier on Monday, Payton assured the media that no decision had been made on Ryan and that he was "absolutely" still on the staff.

"In regards to any potential change, that's something we haven't even met on," Payton added. "That's not something that would be done without a lot of thought. Anything like that would be done with a lot of consideration."

After losing his job in Dallas, Ryan said that he wouldn't be out of work for more than five minutes. There is no telling how long this hiatus will be, but everyone casually watching Saints games will agree that the full hair-flowing fist pumps and slow-motion cursing will be missed by all.

All kidding aside, there are few coaches more passionate about becoming a top-tier coordinator than Ryan, which is something his brother, Rex, will back up instantly. Will he get another chance?


The easily offended are easily manipulated
