No, I think he means will they be inconsistent, less than stellar, and a disappointment to their fans. That is all.

Life is hard when you're a dyslexic.

I was wondering if Falco and the Ravens would have a smilar post SB season as the Giants. I was also wondering if the Falcons would get deeper into the post season. Some how I mashed 'em together.

I think Falco is going to be declared a franchise player though.

Flaco is going to make a ton of money. Praise dog.

Rob Ryan gets hired as the Defensive Coordinator for the Saints.

So now the Saints defense will go from sucking a lot to just sucking an average amount?

I like Rob Ryan's defense, the hair not so much. But I think he does his Daddy proud. Dallas is a tough place to work. And I think he and Mangini were on the right track in Cleveland when they got kicked off the train. Time will tell, but I think the Saints benefit.

I agree. Overall, the Saints defense will get better. I mean, they couldn't get much worse, can they?

Rob Ryan as the linebackers coach for the Patriots had some success. And in Oakland he put together a pretty good defense, too.

In Cleveland, he just wasn't there long enough.

In Dallas, mediocraty was the name of the game. But how much of that was him and his scheme, or interference by the coach and owner, or overrated players not living up to their hype?

And in New Orleans, he's going to switch them to a 3-4 from a 4-3, so I think they're going to have at least one more tough years, for the transition. But he unquestionably a smart guy, so I think he'll probably have some success. Maybe even enough to get them back to the Super Bowl.

I like Rob. He did alright in Dallas. They didn't generate many turnovers though so a change was in order and it's always easier to change coaches than players.

I like Rob Ryan, too. I hope it didn't sound like I was bashing him. And I think he'll be good for the Saints.

But he has a long ways to go with the Saints, and he's changing their defensive scheme, which will add more time to the transition, I think. And the bounty scandal cost them a draft pick, which means they'll lose a pick on defense because I don't see them drafting a lot of guys on offense.

I don't know how they're fixed for cap space, though. They might be looking at free agency to pick up a few key guys on defense.

In three years (maybe two) I believe you'll see a big jump in the Saints' defense. I just don't think it'll happen in 2013.

Yeah, cause there are a ton of QBs out there that could've taken the Redskins to an NFC east title. The kid didn't have a whole lot to work with.

You do understand that a one legged quarterback led his team to the NFC east title. That says more about the level of play in that division than any thing else.

NFC was relatively week as a whole and the NFC west was overrated when 2 rookie QBs in that division were able to take their team to the playoffs. When RG3 was hurt Morris and Cousins were able to pick up the slack to keep them in an extremely tight conference.

It's hard to claim the NFC west was overrated when 2 of their teams made it to the round of 8 and one went to the Super Bowl.

It's hard to make a case that there was a dominant team in the NFL the last few years. Certainly not like the glory days of the Steelers, Cowboys and 49'ers.

Salary cap will do that.
