One anonymous Saints player tells the Times-Picayune that defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be fired.
The Saints set the league record for most yards allowed in a season, giving up a jaw-dropping 440.1 per game. They also ranked 31st in yards allowed, 29th in sacks, 31st in pass defense and dead last against the run. "He does have that good-guy persona, but he is a control freak and treats people like crap," the player said. "(Spagnuolo has) no patience and zero personality. (He) has a way of pissing players and our defensive coaches off with how he says and does things. ... Don't even get me started on lack (of) ability to adjust during games. Bad, bad, bad."
