Saints News, 7/9/15 - Rob Ryan: We’ll be a great defense this year, but we won’t talk about it

New, comments

From PFT.com: After a lot of talk about how good the Saints Defense would be in 2014, they flopped on the field. That’s why Ryan says this year will be all action, at least it will be now that he made one last prediction in line with Ryan family traditions. “The thing is, we did a lot of talking last year and got our butts kicked,” Ryan said, via the New Orleans Advocate. “So I know we’ll be great, but we’ll just prove it this year.”
