On paper, the 2009 Saints don’t come close to the defensive talent on this team. Makes me wonder what Gregg Williams could have done with this type of talent and depth.
He would fail to cover a TE and lose a game that could have gotten us to a Super Bowl.

He probably would of spent less money on the bounty program, and had more for personal grooming.

Hey Gregg!

The creepy van with no windows called. It wants it's driver back.

If he was the Saints coordinator today they would get caught out of position on an ill timed blitz and give up a TD as a result of it!!

Greg Williams can suck eggs!!

The former Saints coach that I'd like to see coaching this talent is Wade Phillips!

Isn’t he the current defensive coach of the Jets? Don’t they suck? Is there something I’m missing?

The guy is largely a one trick pony. He blitzes heavily and hopes he has an elite free safety to make up for it. Worked out in 2009, hasn’t worked out the other myriad of years he’s been a coach.

The league has also largely adapted to his style. He kind of reminds me of Mike Martz but for defense.

Not sure why you bring this up? I'm not the biggest Allen fan but so far so good this year. I'm not impressed with what he's done with the DBs in the past but Bell and Apple/Crawley weren't ideal in coverage. He doesn't have many excuses left this year with the Jenkins projecting to be upgrades in coverage.

I liked Williams when we got him because of how weak we had been there, but he is high risk-reward. His defenses have been all over the map. I think that is a reflection of his style. I wouldn't say he elevates a defense, it's more that he can be lucky taking gambles. I think he can have an amazing run one year than with the same defense be bad the next.
