The New Orleans Saints have a tall task in front of them on Monday Night Football as they must travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

The good news is this is not 2012. In other words, the Saints have a genius at defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who is more than capable of putting together new schemes to help his players find success in tough situations.

ESPN’s Terry Blount and Mike Triplett bring up a great point as to how Ryan will play a major factor in the outcome of the game:

I know this: Ryan will definitely have a plan. He is one of the league’s most innovative game-planners. Former player Scott Fujita described him as a “mad scientist.” We saw that quality more than ever two weeks ago when the Saints played the San Francisco 49ers. Ryan unveiled two new packages for that game, including a five-linebacker formation to corral the 49ers’ run game and the threat of the read-option. We may see the same thing this week, or maybe a new wrinkle since he likes to be unpredictable. I know the Saints’ defensive players will be amped to prove they’re just as good as the more-hyped Seahawks defense. Ends Cameron Jordan and Akiem Hicks, outside linebacker Junior Galette and cornerback Keenan Lewis are having breakout years, in particular.

It only makes sense that Ryan has something special up his sleeve. Ryan is known for his amoeba defense where all players come to the line standing up and can do multiple things once the ball is snapped. Against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, New Orleans is sure to give some new looks to have a competitive edge in a hostile environment.

We can’t wait to see what the “mad scientist” has up his sleeve come Monday. Whatever it is, Seattle is sure to be ill-prepared.
