The Saints Have Relieved Steve Spagnuolo & Ken Flajole of Their Duties: http://bit.ly/Uouda4


Remember when we destroyed that defense...twice? He's coached LBs before

Roman Harper tried to stop Spags from leaving but fell down on the attempt.

Don't they know you can't just change from a 4-3 to 3-4 in one offseason? And the Jets are changing to a West Coast offense this year.

If they read the Huddle, they would know that these sudden system changes are nearly impossible without sucking for years.

that'll be a disaster.

But, they were already league's worst. For a second I was worried the 3-4 meant Rob Ryan but he's in STL now.

So, certainly, Spags for LBs coach makes sense.

So who's making the decision to move to a 3-4? Shouldn't that be the D-Coordinator's decision based on the personnel you have? Payton don't know poo about defense.

That's pretty much 100% verification Vilma is cut, too. He got dumped from the Jets because he couldn't fit in the 3-4 Mangini switched to.

Saints are about to break their own record for worse defense of all time. Nice.

Not gonna lie, I was jealous and nervous when the saints picked him up. Glad to see the organization fall apart this year. I don't blame them for firing him. You can't keep a DC after the worst defense in NFL history.

Brilliant.

It's going to feel good sweeping the Saints next year with Payton at the helm.

He and Rivera coached defense togother in Philly (Rivera coached linebackers, Spagnuolo defensive backs).

And DP is right. He has coached LBs before. In fact, he's coached all three phases of defense. Did pretty well as DC in New York where he also would have worked with Dave Gettleman.

I'd bring him aboard. He probably needs to take a step down the ladder (DC to position coach) to rehab his image anyway.

That would give us a wickedly strong defensive coaching staff, with Rivera, McDermott, Wilkes, Spagnuolo, Washington, et al.

I'd love it.
