Rob Ryan: "I did a damn good job and got fired for it"

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It still remains that the defense did not perform under his guidance. What I hate is that he wasted Drew Brees' time, keeping him from the playoffs, division titles and championships....

Hopefully we don't make too many more mistakes like that going forward.
I'm still kind of undecided about Malcolm Jenkins

I still haven't forgiven him for blowing the lead in 2011 playoff game vs 49ers, 3 point lead with 40 seconds to go and he gets beat by Vernon davis for a 50 yard catch and run.

Malcolm Jenkins was terrible when he was with the Saints. His tackling was poor, and he took bad angles. He said himself that he was bad and that is why he worked to improve himself, because the Saints refused to re-sign him. If he had stayed do you think he would have gotten any better? I don't.

My thoughts exactly!

Jenkins was an average slow CB disguised as a FS who constantly took awful angles and had bricks for hands.

He was not the player then that he is now after doing some serious work on improving his craft and playing in the system the Eagles have.

RR on the otherhand, can talk all he wants... it doesn't change the fact that he failed.

Actually, DA wasn't brought in until the beginning of his third season. So actually his point is BS, DA wasn't here his second year.

He couldn't get players lined up and this was the same complaints Dallas had about him.

I really don't give a crap what system he ran or was forced to run. Bottom line, players were undisciplined, missing tackles, taking stupid penalties, and always out of position. That sh** should be worked out by Sunday, regardless of the 'system'. Not to mention the 18 times we had too few or too many players on the field
jesus can i like this 5 times

Re: Rob Ryan: "I did a damn good job and got fired for it"

He has 12 years experience as a DC. He's been ranked in the bottom half of the league in points allowed and yards allowed for 9 of those years. He can say whatever he wants, but his record speaks for itself.
