Saints News, 11/28/14: Saints Defensive Players Passionately Defend Rob Ryan Against Angry Fans

New, comments

Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis has a message for anyone who dare criticize or blame defensive coordinator Rob Ryan for the unit's struggles this season. "Lay off my coach!" he screamed after overhearing fellow cornerback Corey White being asked about Ryan. "Anyone got a problem ask me. Ain't none of it on him. Tell them I said 'ain't none of it.'"
