Dennis Allen is unleashing the Defensive Line this season.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It all sounds good, but I feel like I've heard this story before. I'm with *hagan on this one, especially his 3rd point. This is a team that gets burned deep so often the medical staff keeps fire extinguishers on ...

Yes sir and I understand your suspicions but ...

This change by Allen will require elevated linebacker play. I think we have the linebackers to pull it off & that D line has improved with the additions of NFairley and Rankins. I expect to see a lot of gang tackling & blitzing.

We have the pieces to be nasty on D.

Trust and believe brother

I just can't stand when the tackling gets sloppy because they are trying to get the ball out. It happen under Willims and it happen under Ryan. I hope Allen tells them to make sure they have the player wrapped up and then try and get the ball out. Lord please no sloppy tackling. If they tackle well that's half the battle.

Excellent point.

The worst combo I can think of is an attacking defense with bad tackling. Its a recipe for big plays against you.

We must have above average tackling in order for this scheme to work. I think (hope) Dennis knows that.

They played like they literally had leashes on them the last couple seasons.
