Kiffin and Marinelli have done an outstanding job so far this season, though I'm not prepared to conclude as much as some around here. We haven't played any top offenses yet. Meanwhile it's interesting to see how recent defensive specialists have done in their respective venues. Yards...Ranking in NFL: Houston #2 New Orleans #4 Dallas #13 Turnovers Created: Dallas 7 New Orleans 6 Houston 3 Points: New Orleans #5 Dallas #9 Houston #24* (*very misleading due to special teams scoring and turnovers from their offense) My primary point is that both Ryan and Wade are exceptional defensive coaches yet both were repeatedly blasted on this forum. Unmercilessly and thoughtlessly. They deserve a lot of credit for knowing their craft. I will also repeat my previous position: I was not on board with Ryan's firing/Kiffin's hiring. I sure hope I'm wrong.
