ll fight for Rob every game. Im a Rob guy,

  • 导出博客文章METAIRIE, La. Gabriel Mercado Argentina Jersey . - Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton doesnt necessarily believe New Orleans much-maligned defence needs wholesale changes heading into next season.While some roster adjustments will have to be made following a non-playoff campaign, Lofton thinks many pieces are already in place that will allow New Orleans to regain the form that took the Saints to an 11-5 record in 2013 and a spot in the NFC Divisional playoffs.One thing is clear, Lofton insists defensive co-ordinator Rob Ryan has to stay.I think Rob is one of the best defensive co-ordinators Ive ever been around and played for, Lofton said. Throughout the year, he stayed confident in himself and us.We let him down this year, so thats disappointing. He stayed the same old same old. We all love Rob and wed run through a wall for Rob.Lofton isnt alone in his assessment of Ryan.After the Saints 30-14 loss to Atlanta last week knocked New Orleans out of playoff contention, many players who were asked about the defence backed up their embattled coach.Why shouldnt he be back here? outside linebacker Junior Galette said. Were the ones out there on the field at the end of the day. He put us in a lot of good situations. I think its unfair.Images of irate coach Sean Payton yelling at Ryan became commonplace as the Saints (6-9) struggled this season. Criticism has been heaped on Ryan because the defence has looked more like the historically bad 2012 unit than the near NFL-leading group of last year.You cant just blame him when things go wrong, cornerback Keenan Lewis said. I dont think the blame should go to the coaches at all. Were the ones out there playing. Weve got to find a way to get it stopped.New Orleans has given up nearly a touchdown more per game this season than in 2013 when the Saints ranked fourth in the NFL by holding teams to 19 points per game. The current Saints are second to last in yards allowed, giving up 390.9. That is 85 yards more than a season ago.The 2012 defence, which gave up more yards than any other team in NFL history, only allowed two points more per game than this seasons group. The unit also stopped teams more often on third down. This years Saints are ranked 30th, allowing teams to convert on 45 per cent of third-down plays.Change helped last seasons defence improve as there were seven new starters. This season has featured only three new starters from last year.Still, the players dont believe Ryans sometimes complicated schemes are the reason for the decline.The guy came here and turned around a defence that was historically one of the worst defences ever, Galette said. We have one bad year and its like, Aw, Rob get out of here. Its unfair. Its crazy to me.This season has proven to be quite a lesson for younger players such as second-year safety Kenny Vaccaro, who came off a rookie campaign in which he played a key role in the Saints defensive success.This year, however, Vaccaro has had trouble backing up his sensational first season.Youve got to detail everything, he said. You cant take anything for granted. Just because you were successful the season before doesnt mean in the next season.But Vaccaro said that is on him, not Ryan.Robs my guy. I love Rob, Vaccaro said. Ill fight for Rob every game. Im a Rob guy, so theres no point even asking me about Rob. Hell ride with me until the end.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Nicolas Otamendi Argentina Jersey .
