The big question was if getting a new defensive coordinator was really the answer and we eventually witnessed, once Rob Ryan was fired, that this defense needs more than just a new defensive coordinator. Sean Payton states on Fox News, “Vision, grade...

Another way to look at Tampa Bay's firing of Lovie Smith

Was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decision to fire Lovie Smith and promote offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter to head coach the right one? Only time will tell. Social media and the internet lit up the firing due to how much the overall play of the team improved this season in 2015. The team tripled their win total from 2014 and finished 6-10. Much of the team’s improvement has to...

The Saints need to start drafting LSU players

Only one. That’s the number of players Sean Payton has drafted out of LSU during his time with the Saints, since 2006. He’s drafted the same number of guys from LSU as he has from Bloomsburg, Hofstra, Towson, Wingate, Samford, Canada (technically Payton was suspended when Akiem Hicks was drafted), Arkansas Pine-Bluff and Tarleton State. You get the idea, schools far less impressive...

Grading the Saints 2015 season: Coaching

The temptation is there to go over each coaching position and grade them all, however I’m not a glutton for punishment. I’m going to go over the relevant coaches, and the focus is going to be on those whose performance most directly affected the season in my opinion. That means that the defensive line coach (Johnson) for instance isn’t getting a grade because frankly there...

Could Sean Payton still leave this offseason?

I write this realizing it’s a bit of JFK-caliber conspiracy theory stuff, but bear with me. Remember the press conference last Wednesday, when we were all so happy that it’s over and that we have our coach for the foreseeable future? I do too. The problem is, for me anyway, exactly what changed? This occurred to me when I was explaining it to my wife. I told her Sean was staying...
