re: Unnamed Saints player tells all about Spags


Has anyone mentioned how these comments are the exact opposite of those from players who Spags coached in his stops in Philadelphia, New York & St. Louis?

I recall an interview that Justin Tuck did during Super Bowl week where he praised Spags the entire interview even though Steve wasn't the DC in New York anymore. Tuck basically said Spags was a player's coach & that he put his players in the best possible positions to succeed on the football field. He continued on to say that they still continue to use the basis of his scheme & concepts even with him being gone.

Coaches and players don't always mesh especially when they go through worse season in the history of football.

There had been incredible improvement to that point.


Did you watch the NYG (52 points) Dallas (31 points) or Carolina (44 points) game?

it was tough to unimprove any more than what we were.


That's true as well. The bar was pretty damn low. Hell, the bar was 6 feet deep. Improvement was ground level.

What everyone is forgetting is that he did not have a Head Coach this season, and a GM for the first 8 games of the season. Let's see what happens when he has a normal offseason after having this season to evaluate the talent he has.

re: Unnamed Saints player tells all about Spags


What did my eyes see on the field as far as the defence this year?

I saw at the start of the season Spags not bringing pressure soon enough when the writting was on the wall about the front four .

I did not see players that were great at rushing, playing the run, disrupting the backfield, making tackles, forcing turnovers, playing great coverage, taking proper angles or getting great reads by the safties and that it was all completly f@cked up by a new DC's system.

Perhaps there is a chance that Spags system showed who were the weak players. The same weaknesses Williams tried to cover for by blitzing ever dang play.

Just maybe.
