Coming out of the gate I would be expecting at or above a 25th ranked defense is a solid goal in year 1.

A 16th ranked defense in DA first year would be huge. we are talking division title and playoff type of huge.

Re: Saints hope to design a defense thatís multiple and easy to execute

Teams who have talent and do the basics well should be competitive. Add in good position coaches and good coordinators who know how to get the most out of a player through scheme and it's a good recipe for success.

DA will blitz. He won't be blitz happy but he will bring the pressure.

The difference this year will be Lewis returning to form and the development of last years rookie corners for quality coverage across from Breaux. The line backers will now be lead by Laurinitis that I have extremely high hopes for. Anthony is going to be turned loose at his new position. When Ellerbe is healthy he's a force when he's not we now have Robertson to step in without missing a beat.

The free safeties look good with the addition of our new rookie so if Byrd goes down we should be fine and able to run a single high safety look effectively. If Byrd plays well then we can run a three safety set and get back to doing that again.

I believe Jordan, Fairley, Rankins, Davison, Onyemata, Richardson, Edibali and Tull can actually pressure the QB taking the pressure off the secondary so they can become opportunistic again. Hit the pocket and collapse it. That is the defensive lines job. No more wait and see.

This new defensive philosophy has me excited about the future for our defense. No more wait and see then react. Balls to the wall baby!

If this team goes from #32 to 16 on D ... deep playoff run.

Huge improvement or not; you're damned if you do and damned if you don't...
There are idiots everywhere unfortunately. But if Allen significantly improves this defense, the vast majority of Saints fans won't really care how he did it.

Agreed. And if the defense is really improved. the results show quickly. In the last 4 seasons the Saints defense has finished with 350 points or less (2009,2010,2011,2013) each squad won at least 5 of their first 8 games.

The defense helps with a fast start out the gate. And fans love that fast start.

We can beat Atlanta and Tampa Bay and we were close to beating the Panthers. I say we take the division anyway and if the defense is 10-15 we get a first round bye.

I think that is a great idea. What I've been saying all along. Play to the players strengths. We don't have the personnel to run a pure 4-3 or 3-4 but we do have the guys who can line up either way depending on the situation.

Kudos for spelling the guy's name correctly... I mean he was instrumental in winning the SB, but still people keep misspelling his name.
