Until they find another cover corner and a couple of safeties it will be tough.
a few years ago when the Saints brought it in Greer and Sharper, it made a big difference.
time for some more moves like that. but it won't be easy with the cap space available.
I think the D will be shite no matter who is coaching
the defense didn't do a bad job of getting turnovers really. they ranked #12 in takeaways.
But hell the Bears led the league in takeaways and didn't even make it into the playoffs. The Steelers allowed the fewest yards in the league and they didn't make the playoffs either.
the main thing I hope for is a better run defense. Watching those games against Carolina were the worst. I know teams had some trouble with that read/option bull shite but watching the Saints defense playing against it was like watching a high school team defending it for the first time ever. I thought that they would play them better the second time around since they had played ATL and TB so much better in the rematches but shite...they looked just as bad except for that pick six by Vilma.
