Re: Saints Hire Gregg Williams for D-Coordinator Job

I pity the poor Saints fans, they probably think they are getting a good DC.

Re: Saints Hire Gregg Williams for D-Coordinator Job

Man this is pretty interesting. Every year NO has that high-flying offense but can't become an elite team due to average/inconsistent defensive effort. Remember Williams took our d from average/inconsistent to a top 10 unit in 3 of his 4 years. This could be the move that puts NO in the elite category.

Why do you say that?

Re: Saints Hire Gregg Williams for D-Coordinator Job

The popular belief in the media and in GWs own head is that he is one of the top DCs in the league. I can see no justification for that in his career to date.

A little more explanation would be helpful. Our d was average/inconsistent before Williams came to town and he turned it into a top 10 unit for 3 of his 4 years. Do you mean it had nothing to do w/ him?

Interesting thought. Though I am now convinced that the whole "Rogers trade" is simply a product of LaCanfora's imagination. I was never a JLC hater, but he has progressively alienated me and his position by position "breakdown" was so horrible that I have no reason to believe anything puts out there.

He already has Torrence whom he loves and if he trades for Rogers I would like a Vilma for Rogers trade.

GW turned our defense into a top 10 defense in the years that he was here (save for that one year we went 5-11). His defense is the reason Gibbs 2.0 had winning seasons, since the offense never amounted to much. I don't think he is THE top DC in the league, but he is a very good one.

Though he probably likes Rogers the fact remains that there are FA corners available and on top of that I doubt he would be involved in giving the Redskins anything of value in exchange for one of their players.

Then you are blind. He has had top defenses everywhere he has gone and actually been in charge of the defense. Tennessee, Buffalo and Was all had good defenses. Outside of one below average year here and one below average in JAX(where he didn't have quite the control he needed) his defense have always been very good.

You are correct. GW is a very respected DC in the NFL. His peers respect him and the players do as well. I am not sure davy has the same credentials?

I'm not sure they have the money to throw at him (not in like, salary cap dollars, but I mean actual real dollars), but I could see them at least asking us about Rogers. He fills a Grand Canyon sized hole for them.

I'd do Rogers for their first rounder, but nothing less than that.

I agree, the guy is a proven DC in this league. His resume speaks for itself.

WTF are you talking about?

You weren't impressed with his 1999 and 2000 Titans defenses? The 2000 team actually ranked higher in yards allowed than the vaunted 2000 Ravens D that season.

You didn't like his top 10 defenses here in DC?

You weren't impressed by his top 10 defenses in Buffalo?

Or do you just not watch football.

I agree with both statements,you're right if you're home shut up and cheer for someone but I see his point do I think we're better but when push came to shove ...we lost ,the name of the game is to move on to the next level,all but 4 teams failed.
