Addition by subtraction. The defense will get better because Ryan is gone.

Add Browner to that list and you see what he means...

Re: 5 Reasons Why Saints Defense Will Be Better in 2016

Seriously speaking, rotation should be HUGE. Keep those BIG GUYS in the trenches FRESH. This is what I'd like to see...

1st and 2nd downs :
Rankins/St. Nick
Cam Jordan
John Jenkins
David Oyemata/Bobby Richardson

On 3rd down ...
Add Kikaha / Tull & rotate JJenkins out.

Keep your eye on Oyemata at camp. This guy has the potential to be very disruptive.

Love the idea of that! Our D line as a whole could be one of our strengths!

All of this would be great but it will be all for naught if our offense somehow manages to take a step back. Its going to take our offense staying in the top 5 along with a signifigent improvement on defense to be a real threat.

I say move training camp from paradise back to Houma or to Hammond like it was during the Dome patrol era, and electrify the metal bench on the sidelines. That will force everyone onto a training bike.... CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He did 1 huge thing that made the difference. in game adjustments. something Rob never did.

It may just be my B&G goggles, but I thought they looked better when Allen took over. More active, more speed, more reactive, more aggressive, even with an injury depleted unit.

We'll see what happens when he has an entire off-season to install his defense.

I agree they looked better

The jags had a top 10 offense and we forced 3 turnovers
When we played the falcons we didn't allow a single second half point.

However, when we played the Panthers the second time we were up by two scores, as soon as Delvin Breaux went down the Panthers didn't punt for the rest of the game.

They showed progress as the season wore on, having browner playing at CB did not help matters, Mr "Allow a first down."
