I know you've watched this team for as long or longer than me, and my memory goes back for about 3.5 decades.

It can always get worse...and my memory is getting worse the older I get, too.

The Saints won Super Bowl XLIV in 2009, in which the Saints ranked 3rd in interceptions despite giving up 321 yards per game.[7] After his success with the Saint's secondary, he was hired to be the Denver Broncos Defensive Coordinator. The Broncos defense were in the bottom half of yards allowed, ranked 23rd, but were 5th in the league in sacks in 2011

As coach:

Texas A&M (GA) (1996–1999)
Tulsa (secondary) (2000–2001)
Atlanta Falcons (defensive QC) (2002–2003)
Atlanta Falcons (defensive asst.) (2004–2005)
New Orleans Saints (asst. DL) (2006–2007)
New Orleans Saints (secondary) (2008–2010)
Denver Broncos (DC) (2011)
Oakland Raiders (2012–2014)
New Orleans Saints (Defensive Coordinator) (2015–present)
The first Dennis Allen thread?

How were his defenses in Atlanta, Denver?

Not so hot, it appears.

Re: Dennis Allen

Be interesting to see if he has the respect of the players or will they not buy in to what he's gonna try to accomplish

Re: Dennis Allen

We have plenty of 4-3 guys. We have more 4-3 talent than 3-4.

Re: Dennis Allen

People need to realize, it can't possibly get any worse. Not unless they physically add more teams to the league..... Right now there is no further down to go, than #32.

Re: Dennis Allen

At this point, what difference does it make who is piloting the titanic? If Allen is the long term fix looking toward next year, great, but if not, what's the point.

Absolutely correct. We actually have quite few pieces suitable for a 3-4. We are missing a true two-gap NT, 3-4 Ends and I think Kikaha for one is more suited to play in a 4-3.
