I remember a few of us talking about this in the other forums when ish first went down back in March. Now that it's out, it's worth discussing. Quite a few of us thought that Payton and Williams weren't getting along, and that Williams would've been leaving, even if his contract hadn't been up.

Quote:
Sean Payton had essentially fired Williams two months before the defensive coordinator was indefinitely suspended by Roger Goodell.


Quote:
Williams' "live by the blitz, die by the blitz" philosophy had helped bury the Saints in their postseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and Payton was ready for a sharp left turn in defensive philosophy.


Quote:
"Well, yeah, teams knew we were going to be in a blitz 90 percent of the time, and they reacted accordingly," defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis said Friday. "It started to be where everything was three-step drop. I feel like people started to know exactly what was going on."

I think we all knew that the defensive system was flawed; I didn't know that they didn't like eachother.
