GIF: Saints Rob Ryan is One Angry Man

The New Orleans Saints are implementing a new 3-4 defense under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who is hailed as a defensive mastermind by most folks in the NFL.

Ryan is also known for having quite the temper. That’s fine—Ryan expects perfection.

He did not get much of that early when the Saints took on the Houston Texans in Week 3 preseason action. Ryan was visibly agitated on the sidelines, but it sure makes for some funny stuff courtesy of our friends at SB Nation:


Ryan can be as angry as he wants if his players are not doing their jobs. It is not a display you see often from coaches around the league, but it is a unique approach that has worked in the past for Ryan.

The funny thing is, Ryan looks just like a fan watching the Saints defense—especially if we are talking about the defense from last season.

Here’s to hoping Saints do not have to see much of this from Ryan next season. With the changes he is making, we’d bet fans won’t have to all that often.

    thats because they failed to adequately address the real issue with that defense…Kenny Vaccaro was a great pick…but a great secondary is nothing without a good front four or five at the LOS applying pressure and controling gaps…Will Smith should have been let go, or at least put at the 5 tech. DE position in this 3-4 not Jack LB…he’s too slow and not able to process things quick enough…Broderick Bunkley is…ok…but not dominant…Richard Seymore and Jonathan Abraham were ready and ripe for the pickings as free agents and we slept on them…this defense will remain a joke until they fix the interior d linemen…and Jenkins from GA should be working with 1st team along with a equally sizeable complement that can also play 5 tech…this was the same issue when we ran the 4-3…Payton has to wake up and smell the stench

      This is preseason Rob Ryan and Sean Payton see what is happening, you can bet for sure the defense will be ready for regular season, adjustments are still being made.

    I can’t relive last years defense again that’s cruel.

    Sure beats the look of complacency under Spagnola. Hard to light a fire with X’s and O’s.
