Found February 14, 2013 on The Saints Nation:
Since the Saints have hired Rob Ryan to coach the defense it's mega podcast time. Andrew Juge, Kevin Held , and Dave Cariello join Ralph to figure out if the hiring of Ryan means Sean Payton likes to have crazy person coaching his defense. Kevin thinks Rob Ryan for entertainment purposes is the best hire EVER and he is Jeremy Shockey at 50 years old. Dave wants to the defense to tackle better and Kevin wants Malcolm Jenkins to exit stage left. Andrew breaks down why the 3-4 will help the Saints substitution problems. Finally, Kevin dreams up a fantastic offseason NFL scandal but Andrew tops him with one involving Tim Tebow and Manti Te'o. Podcast Powered By Podbean

We're about three weeks from the free agency window opening up, so I plan to talk more about this soon. In the meantime, we all know the Saints don't have a 2nd round draft pick and they are completely strapped for cash. Signing top tier talent for big money is probably not going to happen, so any free agents the Saints land will either be cheap or second tier talent. That...
