Defenseless to dominant: Broncos, Jets, 49ers, Saints get tough
Saints (ninth this season, 23rd in '08)
What's new: New defensive coordinator Gregg Williams helped make their unit more aggressive and more disciplined. Safety Darren Sharper is a master at baiting quarterbacks into interceptions, and cornerback Jabari Greer, signed as a free agent, has helped solidify coverage.
Why it's working: With their potent offense, the Saints do not have to be great defensively, just good. And the Saints are hardly lacking defensive talent with players like defensive ends Will Smith and Charles Grant and linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Williams has made the pieces work better together.
