In our latest podcast, I’m joined by the one and only Jeanna Kelley and our own Evan Birchfield to discuss the debut press conferences from new head coach Arthur Smith and general manager Terry Fontenot. We discuss the impression both men made, some of their key statements and overall sentiment about the direction of the franchise.

Topics discussed include:

  • Arthur Smith retaining play-calling duties and why having a good surrounding coaching staff will be important
  • The importance of his background in having played offensive line in college
  • Why Terry Fontenot comes across as the exact opposite of former GM Thomas Dimitroff
  • Why fans shouldn’t be considered with his 18 years with the Saints organization
  • The incredible praise given to him by Saints GM (and noted Sith Lord) Mickey Loomis
  • So much more
