Re: Saints Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen

IDK,

At times it appears the Saints defense is playing with 9 guys and only half on the back end know what is going on. I hate to bang on the defense because in today's "modern offense", it's hard to defend. A lot of teams (including the Niners end of the reg season) are giving up big plays, but when you see the same shortcomings year after year after year, it just gets old.

So we'd be somewhere between an incoherent, impractical scheme or failure of the position coach(s) to properly instruct the players on assignments and objectives and provide feedback to the coordinator?

Do we know that Aaron Glenn is actually a good coach? Getting lucky with Lattimore falling to us seemed to boost Glenn’s reputation.

year after year after year..............

DC after DC. DC Gary Gibbs after DC Gregg Wiliams after DC Steve Spagnola after DC Rob Ryan after DC Dennis Allen. Two common threads, New Orleans Saints and HC Sean Payton. Maybe another example of how the Saints "ALWAYS" magic!

Dennis Allen isn't the reason our offense line couldn't block the Vikings or that our QB looked 100 years old.

Laugh all you want .. Spaggs defense is finding a way today.

KC Chiefs defense is much improved this year and peaking at the right time.

That 100 year old QB is still better than almost every other in the league. And the fact that the line couldn't block would make any QB look 100 years old, no? Who was it on?

I'll be the last one to toot Allens horn but I totally agree with you on your statement. The D should have only had to make a few stops ( which they did) turning the ball back over to the O. Most of this is entirely on the O. The D has a few holes but the O has a few more that needs to get corrected first and foremost. I'm more worried about Nolan leaving, I think he was a huge part of Allens game planning. Guess we'll see.
