Defensive players for Saints should start to see some reality

The ultimate reality will be next season when head coach Sean Payton returns from his suspension.  The “substitute teacher syndrome” is being kicked around as a reason the players aren’t doing well.

No major moves are being made with Payton not combing over every detail in the Saints facility.  But you can bet that he’s watching every game and making notes as to changes that will or could be made.

After the Super Bowl this February, things will become real for several players either positively or negatively.

    The defense sucks and the execution sucks as well, players don’t tackle,they play 10yrds off a receiver how can you cover anyone like that!

      Like of leadership New Orleans Saints not a bad team Roger Goodell knew that this why he did what did on this suppose to be bounty program. To take away a head coach from a team was selfish of Roger Goodell all of this was all because of super bowl run. Every coach and team know that Sean Payton is the mastermind of the NFL. Next year will be a different story to talk about Sean Payton will be back players who are not doing they job will be gone. Are Sean Payton will put them in they right places of play, I really think the players on the defensive side are good players and Spag. is a good coach just need need a mastermind to help get in the right spots and help push the players to learn his system.

      I don’t know all I know is that the Saints defense need to get better before Sean Payton get back. This defense must start performing because Sean Payton get back because he are not going to put up with they performance. Are some of these guys want have a job its bad to say but it’s true.
