    Pay the Zebra got a reaction from ZoneOne01 in So how exactly did the Saints do this?   
    2017: 11-5
    2018: 13-3
    2019: 13-3 (probably)
    You don't do that without A LOT of things going right at all levels of the org. Jeff Ireland's drafting was the catalyst. He may have had some input on free agents as well.

    Jordan is not appreciated for just how great a DE he is.  I hoped Takk would be that kind of DE for us

    The league didn't like it when Blank was piping in fake crowd noise. I wonder how Goodell is gonna react next year when he sees Arthur has filled his empty seats with CGI graphics and life-size cardboard cut-out fans.

    Not doubting the guy, but remember RG3 and Kaep took the league by storm for 1 season. I want to see multiple season os sustained success

    All these rosy 'what ifs' are ignoring the fact that the Saints are the second best team in the NFC, and probably fourth or fifth best in the NFL.  They'll lose a game or two more but that's it.  
    And all this crazy Falcon playoff talk is likely to die a quick death a week from tomorrow.
    The Falcons have looked really good past couple games, but keep your feet on the ground.

    ET Blank is following the same "process" and expecting different results.
    Arthur Blank: Hey Rich,  Dan Reeves is losing what do we do? 
    Rich McKay: I think we should hire a 1st time inexperienced coach in Jim Mora Jr. he is a defensive minded/defensive backs coach from San Fran and he doesnt come with much of a coaching staff but we can help him find coaches and I will draft.
    Arthur Blank: Hey Rich, Jim Mora Jr. didnt work out and our drafts are poor we have no defense and cant run the football what do we do? 
    Rich McKay: I think we should hire Bobby Petrino. He's a 1st time inexperienced NFL coach, who isnt coming with much of a coaching staff but we can help him find coaches,  and I will work with Bobby to make sure get better in the draft. 
    Arthur Blank: Hey Rich,  Petrino didnt work out he didnt last the full season and  our drafts are still poor and we have no defense and cant run the ball, what do we do?
    Rich McKay: I think we should hire a 1st time inexperienced d-line coach from Baltimore in Mike Smith who doesnt come with much of a coaching staff but we will help him find some coaches and will I hire a junior level exec with no GM experience, train him to draft  and then you can call me Team President and I will just consult.  
    Arthur Blank: Hey Rich,  Smitty aint working out and our drafts are still horrible, we cant play defense or run the football, how are we going to fix this?
    Rich McKayM: How about we fire Smitty and bring in Thomas's friend from KC Scott Pioli and see if he can help TD out with linemen in the draft and then let's hire this hot new 1st time inexperienced d-line coach from Seattle he seems pretty good. He doesnt come with much of a coaching staff but we will help him find some coaches.
    Arthur Blank:  Hey Rich DQ aint working out and we are still not doing well in the draft we have no defense and we cant run the football............................
    And so it continues....................
    Coaching hires under Blank  and McKay
    Jim Mora Jr- 1st Time NFL Head Coach/Defensive Minded (D back)
    Bobby Petrino- 1st Time NFL head Coach/Offensive Minded
    Mike Smith- 1st Time NFL Head Coach/Defensive Minded (D-Line)
    Dan Quinn- 1st Time NFL Head Coach/Defensive Minded (D-Line)
     
    Other Coaching Hire by McKay before Atlanta
    Tony Dungy- 1st time inexperienced NFL D-back coach that had no coaching staff- could not get Tampa the Super Bowl so the Glazer family hired Jon Gruden to the dismay of Rich McKay who was strongly urging the Glazer family to hire Marvin Lewis a DC from Baltimore with no head coaching experience. The first thing Gruden did at Tampa Bay? Run out McKay. 
     Blank may not influence the result onthe field but the results on the field are a result of the decisions made by Blank and McKay. Better scouts, better Team president/GM = Better coaches and players= Better teams.

    Watch out Ray you will be getting a pissed off Quinn. We all know what that means..... Well we don't but anyway. Can you get Coach Payton to laugh at Quinn when they go to shake hands at the end of the game also point at the scoreboard on his way out. I would pay good money to see that!!!

    His contract is expiring, wrong side of 30 and he's always nicked up. If the Bengals want a first for 3 month rental they're really smoking that dope.

    Pay the Zebra reacted to atlndvd in Do you think something happened behind the scenes during the off season that we don't know about that is causing this catastrophic season?   
    How about, this team just is not that good?  Sure theres some individual talent that makes people want to believe on paper this is a playoff team but reality is, outside of Ryan, Julio, Sanu, Debo, Neal (done now), Grady, this team pretty much sucks.  Oh add Hooper to that short list

    They're not unlike the Browns. Stacking high end draft picks for so long that eventually they will have success. This year could be it now that they have a competent coach to put it all together.
