Saints | Unsure who is calling plays

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 14:59:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he's unsure who will be calling the offensive plays for the team this year. Offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael called the plays last year with Payton serving his year-long suspension. The offense under Carmichael put up 28.8 points per game, which was third highest in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of whether it's Payton or Carmichael calling the offensive shots, the Saints offense should be in good shape. The high-flying aerial attack led by Drew Brees is expected to continue, and they have enough options in the running game to keep defenses honest.
