The New Orleans Saints' defense was terrible in Week 1 giving up 568 total yards to Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons -- second most in Saints team history.

After conducting a top-five defense last season, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan admitted that his team played poorly in Week 1, specifically pointing to missed tackles as a big problem. Pro Football Focus charted 16 missed tackles by the Saints' defense last week.

"Look, that was a stinker for all of us, but nobody has to hit the panic button around here," Ryan said, per the Times-Picayune. "We are going to work hard. We are not used to losing, and we're not going to get used to it."

Facing the Cleveland Browns on Sunday -- one of Ryan's former teams --the coordinator vowed his defense would bounce back.

"You stick with what you do best. You improve it, you work on it," Ryan said. "At the end of the day, that wasn't a real good game by us. We're going to fix it and we'll be better. You watch, I guarantee we'll be better."

Facing a Browns team devoid of game-changing talent will help Ryan's unit bounce back. However, if the Saints' defense suffers from the same tackling allergy, the Browns' impressive rookie running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell could be in for big days.

We already have a bet superswamper which will keep you off the AFMBs for one month after the season. And they try and say WFW is old...Jeez

Yeah....like you'll really pay up. It's a given, that come January, you'll disavow any knowledge of a bet that you lost.rolleyes.gif

This is the D Van was trying to warn us about last season, but the wool was pulled over our eyes, and they played way above expectations. Now fast forward to this season and this is the Rob Ryan defense everyone is use to seeing. Can they turn it around? Meh, maybe. It's possible but it's more likely to stay this way, and just hope they're able to squeeze out some wins.
