Sad to leave NOLA to AZ; going into ministry

Coach Marrone is doing a fantastic job as Offensive Coordinator/OL Coach. Look at the development of Strief & Jahari Evans... as well as moving Jammal Brown to the left side.

This team has leadership, a game plan and confidence is growing each week.

Didn't know that Marrone played for the Saints in 1989.

No kidding. Nobody expected this level of play from and offensive line with new starters at every position. J. Brown hurt? No problem, we'll just plug in rookie Zach Streif. Obviously, Doug Marrone knows what he's doing.

Remember all the talk in the preseason that the OL was going to keep the Offense from doing anything? The OL was supposed to be a huge weakness, instead it's a huge strength. I'll take 8 sacks in 8 games. The running game hasn't been dominating but good enough to keep D's honest. At this point keeping Brees' upright and healthy is far more important than grinding it out on the ground. Coach Marrone is doing an excellent job. Anytime you can plug in a late round rookie at LT for a star first round pick that says something about your coaching. Watch Jon Stinchcomb's technique, he's never going to be an overpowering RT but has been killing guys with his technique and footwork both signs of good coaching. Jhari Evans is playing like a vet, is getting stronger every week, and is probably one of the top three rookie O linemen (Mangold, Ferguson, Evans in no particular order). These are just couple of examples of Marrone excellence.....
