It really comes down to the coaches, their schemes, ability to command men and execute the plan...

We weren't that talented (and got exposed in the NFC Championship Game against the Bears) and yet there was a great deal of success...

Dennis Allen was the Asst Defensive Line Coach to Marion Hobby (who's the Clemson co-defensive coordinator and defensive end coach)...

John Morton, who's since returned as well, was our Passing Game coach and assistant to Curtis Johnson the receivers coach, is now Wide Receivers coach...

So Payton is getting back to what worked in all sorts of ways...
What that team had was a bunch of pissed off castoffs from other teams that played with the heart of a lion. A fearless new coach and he put Bush in the right places to keep defenses off-balance. And Drew's first year of top-notch team leadership. Just what NOLA needed at the time.
