It's not so much getting bogged down in an argument for the 3-4 or 4-3 front being superior...

It's the frustration of having drafted, acquired more 3-4 personnel than 4-3 and running a 4-3 because that's the only system Dennis Allen seems limited to running...

STAFF CHANGES

Payton detailed several staff additions and subtractions Tuesday. The team has added Dan Campbell (tight ends), Aaron Glenn (secondary), Peter Giunta (senior defensive assistant) and Joe Lombardi (quarterbacks). Dan Roushar (offensive line) coached tight ends last season; Bret Ingalls was not retained...

On Campbell: “Dan, I first got to work with when I was with the Giants and we drafted him out of Texas A&M. Then, later with the Cowboys, we signed him in free agency. I’ve always followed his career, I’ve been just a huge fan. We had a short time frame in ’09 where he was with us before he retired. Just a hard worker, I think a real good teacher. He’ll come in to the tight end position. Dan Roushar will move over into the offensive line position. He’s had a ton of experience coaching the offensive line. That was a real good hire for us."

On Glenn: “Aaron Glenn will come in and coach the secondary. He, too, had a brief stop at the end of his career with us. I was with Aaron with the Cowboys. (He’s) a real smart player, a guy that played a long time in this league and really has a real good understanding of the back end. He was always that guy that players gravitated to with questions while studying film.

On Giunta: “Peter Giunta will be a senior defensive assistant. He’s a veteran NFL coach. I’ve never worked with Peter but I’ve competed against his teams all the way back to St. Louis, when he was with the Rams. He was the defensive coordinator in their Super Bowl season. He’s been with the Chiefs, most recently with the Giants. His experience, I think, will help us tremendously. He’ll be a real good ally for (defensive coordinator) Dennis (Allen) in regard to having seen and done a number of things. He’ll help us on the back end with third down, just one of those real sharp, veteran coaches.”

Payton said he will attempt to fill the spot vacated by Lewis this week.

Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

Getting that same uneasy feeling as I had last season with regards to the defense that we may have too many cooks in the kitchen...

Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

Dennis Allan is DC now isn't he? He should be able to control that unit regardless of how many assistants there are.

Official Announcement: New Orleans Saints announce coaching staff changes and additions

New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton has announced five additions to the team’s 2016 coaching staff today...

...(excerpt on Peter Giunta) Giunta (pronounced GEN-ta) brings 34 years of coaching experience to the Saints, the last 24 in the National Football League with three Super Bowl-winning clubs. He spent nine seasons as the secondary/cornerbacks coach of the New York Giants from 2006-14. During his tenure in New York, the Salem, Mass. native was pivotal in the development of cornerbacks...Corey Webster...an eight-year starter under Giunta’s watch in New York and recorded 22 interceptions and four fumble recoveries in the regular season and postseason, including recording three takeaways in the 2007 playoffs on the way to a Super Bowl title. CB Aaron Ross, the club’s first round draft pick in 2007, was inserted into the starting lineup midway through his rookie campaign and he delivered with three interceptions, including returning one for a touchdown. Ross returned to the starting lineup in 2011 and finished tied for second on the team to Webster (six) with a career-high four picks. More recently, Giunta was instrumental in the development of CB Prince Amukamara, the team’s first round draft pick in 2011, who despite missing the last eight games with a biceps injury in 2014, set a career-high with three interceptions through the first eight contests.

Prior to joining the Giants in 2006, he spent five seasons as the defensive backs coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Giunta joined the Chiefs after spending four years (1997-2000) with the St. Louis Rams, including the last three as the club’s defensive coordinator. In 1999, Giunta’s unit led the NFL in rushing defense, tied for first in sacks, ranked second in interceptions, fourth in scoring defense and sixth in total defense for the Super Bowl XXXIV Champions...

Official Announcement: New Orleans Saints announce coaching staff changes and additions

New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton has announced five additions to the team’s 2016 coaching staff today...

...(excerpt on Aaron Glenn) A 15-year NFL veteran with two years of coaching experience, Glenn joins New Orleans after spending the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns as the assistant secondary coach. While with the Browns, Glenn aided in the development of CBs Joe Haden and Buster Skrine as Cleveland was the only NFL team to have two players with at least 18 passes defensed in 2014. Glenn spent two seasons in the front office of the New York Jets as a pro personnel scout and college area scout before joining the Browns. A first round pick in 1994 out of Texas A&M, Glenn played in 205 career games with 176 starts for New York (1994-2001), Houston (2002-04), Dallas (2005-06), Jacksonville (2007), and New Orleans (2008). Glenn finished his playing career with 661 tackles, 41 interceptions, with six returned for touchdowns, 168 passes defensed, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He was named to the Pro Bowl three times...

Comment: Glenn was named an All-Pro three times (1997, 1998, 2002)...
