The New Orleans Saints had one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season, which of course reflects poorly on defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. It was a hectic year in New Orleans between the bounty scandal and the suspension of head coach Sean Payton, so it’s tough to judge anyone based on the past 10 months.
At least one Saints player feels as though Spagnuolo is to blame for a disappointing 2012 season. In speaking with the The Times-Picayune on Tuesday, the anonymous player reportedly gave an emphatic “yes” when asked if Spagnuolo deserved to be fired after a season in which the Saints set an NFL record for yards allowed.
“Players have no say in anything,” the player said. “It was (a) complete opposite from before where it was a simple D that players had lot of control and say. We couldn’t suggest (expletive)…Nothing ever changed. It was his way only.
“Don’t even get me started on lack (of) ability to adjust during games. Bad, bad, bad.”
On Wednesday, linebacker Jonathan ...

The 2012 NFL season will not be one in which the New Orleans Saints will wish to remember. Take away the losing record and failure to make the playoffs, coupled with all of the player and coaching and executive suspensions, and this past season is one to forget in The Big Easy.
Unfortunately, it appears as if the damage control is nowhere near complete for Sean Payton and the Saints...

Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by for his final regular season visit. Now that the Saints gave up most yards in NFL history there shouldn't be any option off the table to fix things including firing Steve Spagnuolo. Can one guy change the Saints defense? Why depth at corner is as big an issue as the pass rush. Who is better option at safety Malcolm Jenkins or Isa Abdul...
