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." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
