Saints News, 2/12/15: Dennis Allen As Saints' 'Man of the Year?'

New, comments

Andrew Schuster at WhoDatDish.com explains 'Why Dennis Allen Could Be Man of the Year for Saints in 2015:' "Here’s what I adore about Dennis Allen — he’s got the intelligence and mindset of a coach, which he is, and the demeanor, energy and passion of a player. Those traits define the characters of the veteran leaders that departed a year ago, and I believe Allen will restore that energy to the Who Dat Nation....locking up Allen is a HUGE step in the right direction in order to get the club back on track. Installing his passion and acuity with Sean Payton’s brilliance and Rob Ryan’s aggressive schemes could spell danger to opposing teams."
