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."

Getting us in the 25 range want get it.
could care less what he did as the hc of a team. there are many guys that are good d coords and not good head coaches. Also, I think he did really well in denver considering the frigan offense they have. they wont a playoff game with teabag, are you kidding me?

If this group of guys can create turnovers then we are looking at completing for a division title and maybe a first round bye.
I share your optimism.
Da Saints !
