Saints Defense Greatly Improves
New Orleans' defense was historically bad last season. They allowed almost 60 yards more than any other team. They were an epic fail. Now they've lost defensive ends Will Smith and Kenyon Coleman and linebacker Victor Butler for the season. Linebacker Jonathan Vilma will miss at least a few weeks. Yet somehow, they're going to be improved, almost by default. Sometimes, like in this case, younger is better. New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will help lead a massive turnaround on the defensive side of the ball.
