Who or what is to blame for the Saints defensive disaster?
Could it be Steve Spagnuolo and his new plan? I mean we all grew tired of the Gregg Williams strategy of taking kerosene, matches, fireworks, a blitzing Roman Harper then hoping for the best, but maybe old Gregg had it right; the Saints defense is so devoid of talent or ability to run a complicated scheme let’s just set the house on fire to keep warm in the winter and hope for the best. Whatever happens it will burn real pretty.
Arson as a defensive philosophy has holes of course (see Smith, Alex) but as much as it pains me to say it I think I’d prefer the Gregg Williams defense to the 2012 Saints. At least Gregg Williams defense was interesting and whatever was going to happen usually did so very quickly.
