Payton says Saints are going to a 3-4 alignment. This must have listened to @TripTP.


I am football geeking out. Just wondering who is being targeted as the new DC. Who is on the market? Romeo still out there?

And switching to the 3-4 as well.

Do the Saints have the correct personnel for a 3-4 defense? Linebackers aren't too impressive.

I wonder who the go after D coordinator wise. Crennel? Ryan?

Overall, I think it had to be done. Worse D in history needs to be changed up.

I think they're going to benefit a lot from switching to a 3-4.

Sad to see how far he has fallen.

From Super Bowl hero with his D to this.

It's a shame.

We have a lot of pieces that will work well for the 3-4. Junior Galette and Martez Wilson seem poised for the move to OLB in the 3-4 and Cam Jordan and Akiem Hicks move to 3-4 DE. I can see Lofton playing as an ILB, but we will certainly need someone that can play better coverage. Vilma struggled with the 3-4 in NY so he may end up gone. I think they can make it work. I was wondering if Crennel was still available.

Shocked It's official we are running the 3-4!! My prayers have been answered. The saints have more 3-4 personal than 4-3

Hawthorne and Lofton should be fine at ILB. I think our front 7 benefits GREATLY from this move.

So I was laughed at when I said Spagnuolo deserves to be fired.....


Good for the Saints. Move in a different direction because what Steve was running there was clearly not working.

Who plays NT? Definitely not Ellis. I'll be surprised if he is still around after this Free Agency. Perhaps Hicks or Bunkley?

DE- Hicks
NT- Bunkley
DE- Jordan

Ellis is gone and Smith should be gone.
