It's a strong message from Bush, who states that it wasn't Ryan's fault, but that the defense let down their coach.

Ryan should catch on somewhere else sooner than later, but his time with the Saints had definitely hit a rough patch, and it seemed as though things weren't going to turn around anytime soon.
