If Rob Ryan’s going out, he’s going out his way
Much like his brother, if Rob Ryan was going out yesterday, he was going out guns blazing.
The Saints defensive coordinator fired up his guys and led the Saints to a comeback win over a sort-of trying Buccaneers team yesterday.
Ryan’s impassioned halftime speech was cited by some as the reason for his comeback, as he lit into players, telling them: “Act like you want to be here,” Ryan yelled.
“Rob came in and chewed us out,” Galette said, via Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “It’s like ‘Hey, this guy really cares.’ You know he cares. You know how passionate it is. And we started playing as a team and just played with our technique, we were gap-sound and they couldn’t do anything.”
While it might not make much of a difference as to his job security, he at least has players on his side, which is a trick his brother has mastered as well.
“I’d be shocked,” Galette said, when asked about the possibility of Ryan being fired.
Perhaps, but enough happened over the previous 15 games to mean few others would be.
