Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

I'm hoping for several new faces on the coaching staff.

Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

With the exception of the SuperBowl year, and even then, the defense had been middle-of-the-road at best...

And among the constants in that time since 2009 - LBer Coach Joe Vitt, DL Coach Bill Johnson...

It's really time to get some fresh air on the defensive side of the ball...

And on offense, if we could trade either/both Spiller, Byrd for offensive line, running game coach Aaron Kromer, I do that as well...

I heard Payton say CJ wasn't healthy. When Spiller was on the field, he wasn't healthy. Pretty much it in a nut shell.

IMO he returns for one more season.

Willis, who enjoyed a seven-year NFL playing career with three teams is a 14-year coaching veteran who joins the Saints after spending the past two seasons as defensive coordinator/inside linebackers coach at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.




Brian Young enters his first season in charge of the club’s outside linebackers. In his seventh season as a member of the coaching staff, Young helped Assistant Head Coach/Linebackers Joe Vitt tutor the Saints linebackers from 2012-14 after breaking into the ranks as a coaching assistant from 2009-11.




Now about Bill Johnson, you may have a point, but we brought in 2 new LB coaches and Vitt is the "assistant Head Coach" now.

Sorry, Young is not a new face... And consider who taught him.

Ok, what has he done good or bad? Was it Vitt? Was it lack of talent? Was it the DCs scheme? How much power did he have?

The truth is that none of us know who's at fault at all.

And still to this day no one can name one single LB that got better after leaving, or a single free agent LB that got worse when they came here.

I actually never heard anyone refer to him as interim. Everything I heard was he took over as DC. I really think he was hired to take over the job from the get go. There were rumblings about Payton and Ryan not seeing eye to eye last season. When Payton announced that Ryan would still be the DC after last year he didnt seem to excited about it.

That's correct, valid points...

...and it also illustrates that how some feel Vitt was a handicap with regards to the linebacking corps as we did see much improved play on the part of both the inside and outside linebackers with Willis and Young taking charge respectively this past season...

...so the change has already been happening as you indicated...

...And we're all in agreement that the defensive line continues to underwhelm...
