Aaron Glenn regularly relays this message to the New Orleans Saints defensive backs.

"This league will forget about you quickly," said Glenn, now in his third year as Saints secondary coach.

Glenn would know, of course. Playing 15 years in the NFL, he saw how quickly good players could stumble. When he speaks to the Saints' young defensive backs, like Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Williams and Ken Crawley, he can share first-hand experiences of the perils of good players being overconfident or resting on their laurels.



"He's not going to settle for complacency, and that's what you want out of a coach," said safety Kurt Coleman, a new arrival this year.

Glenn would be wise to take his own advice. With success comes opportunity, and for Glenn, opportunities to climb the coaching ranks could come quickly if his position group continues the ascent it made in 2017.

Glenn last year oversaw the turnaround of the Saints secondary, something that seemed an impossible task based on the previous few seasons when many teams threw the ball against the New Orleans defense at will.

It will become a matter of time before Glenn gets a promotion (DC gig) to lead elsewhere. I hope we can capitalize while he is still teaching in New Orleans.

He'll more likely become a HC before a DC...

Great position coach. Beyond that - those of us on outside are guessing. Way too many guys have been promoted beyond their abilities to their detriment as well as a team’s. Hope he himself knows his own limitations. He’ll be. happiest where he’s at his best. No one is happy overwhelmed or failing.

"He transformed me," Crawley said of Glenn's impact.


That enough said right there.

What if we could get Deon Sanders as the position coach after he leaves? Primetime as the coachof the DB's? They'd be unstoppable. Teams would never throw against the saints.

Trump stands a better chance of getting Deon to solve the NFL kneeling league dilemma.

That's why it's a what if.....lol. Granted it's a BIG what if. Deon just seems to always have something to say about their defense. Why not? Other than he's still full of himself. He sure likes Kamara and Ingram.
