S.O.S. to Spagnuolo: Save Our Saints!!

The final minute and a half of the Saints’ playoff game against the 49ers keeps replaying in my head like that “Macarena” song or “Sex and the City 2” or William Hung’s version of “She Bangs”. In other words, it’s making me want to kill myself. Alex Smith’s game winning drive proved what many of us fans knew all along: our defense blows. The man who orchestrated that piss poor defensive series, Coordinator Gregg Williams, thankfully didn’t stick around long enough to get the flogging he most certainly deserved. He’s St. Louis’ problem now.

The Saints just signed a new coach who can hopefully handle the task of knowing how to stop the likes of an “almighty gunslinger” like Alex Smith. (Eyeroll). Steve Spagnuolo may have lost his job as head coach of the Rams but there is plenty of excitement about what he might be able to do for the Saints’ defense. For starters, unlike “Blitzen” aka Coach Williams, Spagnuolo is all about pressure from the front four. That frees up more players to cover big bodies in critical situations…like say, Vernon Davis in the last minute and a half of a f*cking playoff game when your awesome offense just pulled off what would have been an epic game winning drive. SONOFABITCH!!!!

As you can see, I’m still a little bitter.

Spagnuolo’s game plan might mean we’ll see some new faces on our defensive team next season. Nola Chick is totally fine with that. I’m thinking off the top of my head we need more speed and strength up front. We’re going to be playing Cam Newton twice a season folks and I sure as heck don’t have faith in all of our current personnel to get his butt to the ground as often as he needs to be. Not to mention the fact that we’ll also be seeing Aaron Rodgers again next season. We saw what the Giants’ defense was able to do to Aaron in their divisional playoff match-up. Spags (that’s how I’m referring to him from now on btw) is rumored to favor a similar defensive style as what the Giants were able to pull off towards the end of their season.

So what do you think of the Saints’ new hire? Is he the man with the plan or should we keep praying the offense can still put up 40+ points to cover our butts?

  1. I find it promising that even with Shitty -Shitty -Bang- Bang- Williams, ( that’s what I am calling him from now on btw) we still managed to get to the playoffs…..SO THAT BEING SAID ….with the baddest offense in the league, the greatest QB ever born, and a defense worth half a squirt, I, for one, cannot wait until next season!!!!
    And that, my lovely, is the most hopeful thing to come out of my mouth since The Fateful Day That Never Should Have Been.

  2. Okay, so I’m not the only one still a teeny tiny (effing GINORMOUS) bit bitter about that loss to the freaking Niners… I live in the SF bay area and I have been a Saints fan for 30 some-odd years now, and while I am not a fan of the NY Giants, I am grateful to the G-Men for finally shutting up the Niners fans for the season (they are legion) after a week of hearing them saying “Who Dat?? We Dat!!” Ugh.
    I know we’ve got talent on Defense, and I’m really hoping that Spags (I’ll be calling him that going forward also, thx nolachick!) will be able to help them make manifest the great D that they have the potential to be.
