Some pretty harsh words are being directed towards the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo per a anonymous player, callng him "a control freak" who "treats people like crap," according to Times-Picayune.
In total defense, the Saints ranked dead last, last in run defense, 31st in pass defense and 31st in points allowed.
"Players have no say in anything," the unnamed 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."
The player says while Spagnuolo's schemes rubbed them the wrong way, it was nothing compared to how they felt about his coaching and as a person in general.
"He does have that good-guy persona, but he is a control freak and treats people like crap," the player said. (Spagnuolo has) no patience and zero personality. (He) has a way of pissing players and our defensive coaches off with how he says and does things. (I) think it's even harder after having (former defensive coordinator) Gregg (Williams), who guys enjoyed."

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...
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.

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...
