    The talent level in NO is much lower than what he had in NY. But I'm still surprised they were that bad.

    Other teams are actually moving to the 4-3 too. Both styles work just depends on the players.

    I hate the switch.

    Only the Cowboys would switch to a 3-4, never get a nose tackle for the scheme and then switch back.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Saints will consider adding Eric Mangini and Romeo Crennel to their 2013 defensive staff.

    Schefter suggests Crennel and Mangini "could go together" to New Orleans, with one serving as defensive coordinator. Crennel and Mangini have familiar backgrounds as Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick disciples, respectively. They were both on staff when Belichick's Patriots won three Super Bowls.

    The New Orleans Times-Picayune names Martez Wilson and Junior Galette as two defenders likeliest to benefit from the Saints' move to a 3-4.

    Wilson, a linebacker at Illinois, flashed with three sacks as a nickel pass rusher in 2012 and at 6-foot-4, 252, is built like a 3-4 outside linebacker. Galette, who goes 6-foot-2, 258, racked up five sacks in a rotational role. It's conceivable that Galette and Wilson could open the 2013 season as New Orleans' bookend outside rushers with Cam Jordan and Akiem Hicks on the ends

    give Saints John Jenkins if he's on board. I hope they don't forget a 3-4 needs a great NT

    Spags will get another job because the NFL is a "recycle league"

    If they're bringing in Crennel they'll have to drastically add size to their DL. He's about the two-gappiest two gapper that ever two gapped.

    The Saints just have a bad defense. They were going downhill with Gregg Williams the year before. They struggle to stop the Lions and the 49ers in last years playoffs and just continued that horrible trend this entire season.

    Cameron Jordan should thrive better in the 3-4
