New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton on Friday dismissed the notion by former defensive coordinator Rob Ryan that he did not have a full say in how the defense was run, which Ryan said in an interview with theMMQB.com website.

"We tried to implement some schemes we thought would help our defense," Payton said in an interview with Pro Football Talk Live on NBC Sports Radio. "But the idea that it wasn't his defense, or that he wasn't, you know, in charge of it, is silly."



The interview was scheduled Thursday night, before theMMQB.com published the comments from Ryan.

"It's difficult when you're fired," Payton said. "We didn't have the success we wanted. He and I got along great. Ultimately, it really came down to just organization, getting the players lined up, getting the call and, I mean, there were a handful of things that ultimately led to that decision.

"He's extremely talented, he's a passionate worker. And I think we felt, clearly, I felt, it was best for our football program. Shoot, we were next-door neighbors."

Ryan said the biggest mistake he made with the Saints was "sitting on my hands and collecting a paycheck" as the Saints defense sank from fourth in total yards allowed in 2013 to near last in both of the next two seasons.

Payton lauded Ryan for the passion be brought to the job.

Yeah. This is good. If was fine to have one bloviating narcissistic retard telling everyone how terrific he is, now everyone wants to Trump.

To be fair, saying stuff like this is nothing new for either of the Ryan's. And he did admit that he should've just taken his concerns to Payton. In fact the quote was something along the lines of "I should've just talked to Sean about it, he's a good guy."

Honestly I wasn't surprised at all by this. Figured he would start talking sooner or later. He didn't really say anything terribly inflammatory imo. Not really a big deal.

Rob knew how to take care of breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack.
He didn't have time for anything else.

Wow.
I saw it another way entirely.
I immediately thought the "bloviating, narcissistic retard" was Hilary or perhaps Bernie.
Both of our responses should probably be in the EE or Politics forums.
But hey. What do i know?
Cest la vie.

Re: Sean Payton: To say Rob Ryan wasn't in charge of Saints defense 'is silly'

your right he says the same thing every time he gets can. It is always them never me. If they would have listened to me and let me do my thing it would have worked out.

blah blah ... whine whine

I guess we know who in the Ryan family never got out of their diapers. He and Cam should get an apartment together. They could split the cost of their diapers.

I would say he takes after his mother but that would not be fair to her.

Cry Baby Rob Ryan is now hiding behind his big brother.

Dad should have beat him more.

This was his MO when he came here.

Re: Sean Payton: To say Rob Ryan wasn't in charge of Saints defense 'is silly'

good read. Read the whole thing, the only part I disagree with is that the change in scheme caused the problem. It openly admits the change was year 3. So what was the problem year 2?
