We've talked ad nausea this offseason about all the issues the New Orleans Saints have had. Controversy upon suspensions upon front office ineptitude has now driven us to the beautiful part of the offseason in which we reside—OTAs.
Now is the time Joe Vitt, Steve Spagnuolo, Aaron Kromer and Pete Carmichael (as well as all the other assistant coaches) get to hunker down and do what they do best—coach football. Done are the scouting evaluations, draft meetings, free agency visits and other crap most NFL coaches tire of quickly.
These guys finally get to do what they love, which is simply coach ball.
Of course, coaching in OTAs is also a matter of evaluating the players in the building. That is a huge part of what takes place throughout the offseason program and training camp. They must make a decision based on what they see during these practices and the ones in late July and August to determine who makes the opening-day roster.
And they get the opportunity to begin planning the ways in which they will implement certain players into certain packages while determining which players will get some of the key roles on the football team.
The New Orleans Saints have a number of players whom coaches are excited to place in the lineup of the black and gold when September 9 rolls around.
