You are right.

What I really wanted to say, I didn't think there was a plan of action before the firings. The most important thing, though, I don't feel warm and fuzzy about anyone in the Saints staff being able to make an effective hire on that side of the ball. Like the ST coach mentioned in the Underhill tweet about the SF ST coach, who has bounced around from team to team (5 teams in the last 8 years) as an Assistant ST coach.

Keep in mind, we signed Jeff Ireland off the bleachers at the Senior Bowl.

I hope the Saints keep Coach O'Dea in some capacity. Lutz's kicking trajectory instantly improved once he was brought on board.

Re: Coach Replacements

Really surprised we don't have our coaches hired with the Senior Game just about 10 days away...

Ever research Peter Guinta our senior defensive cordinator assistant or whatever you call his made up title? He has basically been over secondarys. I looked him up yesterday. I guess he takes over as DC if Allen bombs.

Re: Coach Replacements

Kevin O'Dea is almost certainly taking the ST spot, so that leaves what two, LB and DL?

I'm not so sure about that one.

Now that Kansas City has been eliminated from the post season play, I hope Saints FO will reach out to Coach Olivo (assistant of Dave Toub). He in addition to O'Dea would do absolute wonders for our special teams.
