Poll: Jairus Byrd In or Rob Ryan Out

We have yet to see the oft-injured safety take the field, and some are already calling for the coach's job. Which is more likely to come to fruition first?

On this week's edition of the Saints Happy Hour Podcast, an interesting question was raised.  We will now take this question to a vote.

Which is more likely to happen first, Jairus Byrd will play in his first game of the season or Rob Ryan will be fired as the Saints defensive coordinator?

I would think that Byrd would play first, considering how vulnerable the Saints are leaving themselves at safety while they wait for his arrival.  You just wouldn't leave yourself that thin unless you actually knew he was coming back soon.

As for Ryan, the youth and inexperience on defense may just be his saving grace, for a while anyway.  That factor should shoulder some of the blame for failings that could occur in the early goings in the season, but it won't last very long.

We ask you, Who Dat Nation, which is more likely to occur first, Byrd coming in or Ryan going out?  Make your voice heard!
