And gotta believe Defensive Line and maybe special teams will be addressed...

Special Teams may be off the hook with some improved play this season...

Believe Saints coaches are set for the annual summit meeting...

After a week off, Saints coaching staff will dive deep into offseason work | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana

For that reason, the decisions that seem to be looming over the Saints — particularly decisions on core veterans like Marques Colston and Zach Strief — are only in the beginning stages right now.

When Payton met with the players in the days after the win over Atlanta in the season finale, the focus was more on 2015 than what the team might do in 2016.

“I spent a half an hour with Marques the other day in my office, and Zach today for half an hour,” Payton said Wednesday. “Nothing about next year, the future. It was really about this past year, how they are feeling, what’s their health like, just those types of things.”

As the Saints begin their offseason, evaluating injured players will be key | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana

So the coaches will be evaluated based on their evaluations of players...

Ted Lewis: New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton's decision shows loyalty to community, fans | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana

...But seldom do you hear a coach talk about his affection for his adopted community and its people as Payton did.

“I never take for granted our fan base and how supportive they’ve been,” he said at one point during his nearly hour- long appearance. “Someone said this to me when I moved here in ’06: There’s something about this city, and you hear that initially, and look, there was a lot back then that was uniquely different because of post-Katrina. But there is something unique and different.

“I can’t put my finger on it. I mean, I drive through a pothole every day like you guys do, and get upset. When the water is down in a certain parish, I have to come here to shower, just like everyone else might have to go somewhere else. And yet it grows on you, and it is home.”

Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

Dennis Allen as Defensive Coordinator not necessarily a done deal?!?

Sean Payton says there is a ‘likelihood’ Dennis Allen will return to Saints as defensive coordinator | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Sean Payton gave Dennis Allen something of an endorsement during his Wednesday news conference, although the Saints coach said he has not yet made a decision on whether the defensive coordinator will return next season.

And that goes for all members of the coaching staff, though Payton did say there is a “likelihood” Allen will return as defensive coordinator next season.

“I’m going to visit with Dennis specifically, and I think that in all likelihood that will be the case,” Payton said. “It’s just a little bit ahead of the game. I just spent 10 minutes with the staff.

“He was real good coming in in a tough position. I thought he was organized, detailed. I think there are a few pieces that we have to help him with that can help our team and I think being charge of it for the course of the offseason (will help). There were a lot of good things he did.”

Allen took over for Rob Ryan, who was fired after a Week 10 loss at Washington, and presided over the final six games of the season.

Under Ryan, the defense allowed an average of 424.3 yards per game. That figure dropped to 396.2 yards with Allen overseeing the defense. The points also dropped from 31.5 points per game to 26.8 from Ryan to Allen.

Payton said he will evaluate all members of the staff in the coming weeks and months but it was too soon to announce who will be back next season.

So now, it may seem, the Saints are in the market for...

Offensive Line Coach, Assistant
Secondary Coach, Assistant
Receivers Coach, Assistant

And though it is all but likely, Dennis Allen will return in new role as Defensive Coordinator and Bill Johnson as the Defensive Line Coach...

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.
The only LB that I can think of that had had a better career after leaving is Ninkovich. But that's because our coaches missed the boat on him

I think that one can't be pinned on the coaches, pretty sure Ninkovich tore his ACL twice whilst here.
