Ryan helped by value Saints place on smart players

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan shows as much interest in simplifying his notoriously complex schemes as he shows in cutting his long silver hair.

Harry Gamble was one of the good guys

On one side was the owner of the Eagles, a car salesman and self-made multimillionaire who owned a villa in France, Norman Braman, dubbed Bottom Line Braman for his penchant to, in the words of disgruntled Iggles fans, throw around nickels like they were manhole covers.

Football pundits constantly harp on the faddish new formations and mind blowing innovations that NFL coaches and coordinators concoct year in and year out. Even a casual observer of the NFL can witness dramatic shifts in scheme and play on a league wide scale.
