Payton is great.
But he also hired Gary Gibbs and spagnuolo to run his defense.
To be fair I bet those came on strong recommendations from people he knew, Gibbs was a parcells hire without question.
I bet he gets a good report on grantham from people he knows and I bet Jerry and whoever he talks to in Irving give a good report on Ryan.
I really hope he hires Ryan, that will keep the saints weaker than they could be. Rob Ryan is not a good coordinator.
