Some interesting quotes from Payton about Ryan. I don't think it was a direct jab at Spag or anything, but these were the things that Holder's "anonymous" sourch (aka Shanle) complained about with Spag.
"Number one, I know he's passionate about the game. I know he's very intelligent and players love playing for him. "He's a very loyal guy. All the coaches I've spoken to that he's worked with have all said he's done a great job of putting together defenses and understanding strengths and weaknesses of his team.
I don't think Spags is a bad coach or anything, but I think the part about him putting the right players in the right situations is what made us so bad last year.
