First (take) ...

When he hired him in January, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton did more than just charge Gregg Williams to coordinate his defense. He hired him to catalyze it.

Payton wanted to Williams to change the attitude and culture of the unit. He wanted a more aggressive, attacking style to complement his high-flying offense.

So far, so good.

Through the first three weeks of the season, the Saints have blitzed more often than any team in the NFC South and almost more than any team in the NFL, according to's Pat Yasinskas, who cited ESPN Stats & Information in his NFC South blog this week.
