re: Saints fire Spags - switching to 3-4 defense - Who the new DC?(Posted by bigpapamac on 1/25/13 at 9:45 am to Tiger Voodoo)
I actually think Kirby Smart would be a good fit for the Saints. Let's face it, with the Saints' current roster, they aren't going to have a top rated defense in the league. They're a team that needs to rely on forcing turnovers and creating big plays in order to be successful. With a high-powered offense that's typically the kind of defense you see do well anyway. Oregon is what first comes to mind as an example of what I'm getting at. They aren't a great defense (they aren't the worst in history either), but they make enough big plays and force enough turnovers to compliment their high scoring offense and put further pressure on the opposition. That's something Kirby could thrive on.
