Rob Ryan is no stranger to Ms. Mae's, and the Saints' defensive coordinator once again visited his Uptown watering hole to celebrate last night's victory against the Cowboys. NoDef reader Rachel Stickney was on the scene to film Ryan cheering with fans after dropping $200 on the bar to buy everyone a round.
Ryan had plenty to celebrate after the Saints routed the team that fired him at the end of the 2012 season. His defense limited the Cowboys to 193 yards of total offense, with quarterback Tony Romo passing for a mere 20 yards in the first half.
The Ms. Mae's crowd was ready for more, as they broke into the chant of "Defense!" upon Ryan's arrival.
"He stopped in for about ten minutes, dropped $200 on the bar to buy everyone a round and then scooted off with his wife and friends, but first, he stopped for a picture with every single person who asked him," Stickney reports.
