For our weekly installment of 5 Questions, we asked Chris Roling, lead editor of WhoDatDish, five questions about this weeks matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
With some of the Bears complaining that the Lions may have known their line calls, do you fear with Aaron Kromer on staff that the Bears will have an advantage Sunday?
Not at all. These things typically change weekly and the New Orleans coaching staff has undergone so many changes from last year, especially with head coach Sean Payton back, that it should be a non-issue. Besides, we all know Detroit teams under Jim Schwartz like to complain.
How is the revamped Rob Ryan Defense performing so far this year?
Amazing. While it’s hard to not improve on the worst statistical defense of all time, Ryan has changed the culture as well. The secondary is playing well thanks to the addition of Keenan Lewis and guys like Junior Galette are having breakout years thanks to a scheme change to the 3-4. Kenny Vaccaro is playing like a veteran and third-round rookie John Jenkins has made the team forget about injured starter Brodrick Bunkley. Finally, the pass rush is the strength of the team, which was impossible to predict before the year.
