He's an ESPN hack who says that maybe after all the drafts and free-agency pickups, we still don't have it right on defense. He may be right... or wrong. So without proof he's just farting in the wind...

Unfortunately Bill Barnwell is one of the best out there.

We're gonna have to prove it to a lot of people.

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

Fair criticism, we've earned it...

But you look at this roster, and the talent we've accumulated, what is taken place...

...and as better-informed Saints fans here at Black & Gold than most Saints fans, we know the potential to turn things around quickly is legitimately there...

As far as the Talking Heads, let 'em disrespect and underestimate us, as that should help us fly under the radar for about six weeks...

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

I haven't been impressed with our D at all. They are singlehandedly responsible for us not being contenders. I hope I'm wrong about Allen or he may just get lucky with all the picks we have gotten in the last 2 drafts but in a deep playoff game I don't see him cutting it. I do think we have good talent on the D but bringing it out will be another thing. We'll see!!

Neither have I but let's flip it & see the bright side of what we can look forward to in 2016 (specifically defense):

A new defensive tackle
2 new safeties (one wiley vet)
3 new linebackers
3 fresh draft picks who are expected to make contributions early
2 draft picks from last season coming off a "redshirt" (PJ, show me what you got!)

But my favorite (brace yourself)... an aggressive yet simplified defensive scheme.

This is why I'm more excited about training camp than in years before. Hopefully the Saints make Bill eat his words .

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

I'm guess his rankings are based on what we actually know at this time.

We have several young players that could drastically change that ranking going into the 2017 season, but they haven't done it yet.

Two D Tackles

DE boom or bust 4th rd pick

Lots of safety depth

Better CB depth

LBs that can pass cover

Somebody has to set up and pressure the QB ????

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

all a hill of beans at this point

DA is in and Rob is gone. +2 wins right out of the gate

lets see how this move effects the saints first before looking at the pieces.
