Saints plan to use committee on fourth-down calls

Print

New Orleans Saints interim to the interim head coach Aaron Kromer is in a weird position. He's never run a team before and his only practice at game management came in the preseason.

So what will Kromer do when it's fourth-and-one? He'll ask for help.

On one hand, head coaches often consult with their coordinator and quarterback in this situation. But this sounds a little different. This sounds like a committee is making a decision.

To put it another way: In what situation will Brees ever suggest to punt?

Kromer needs to be the final word. We anticipate he will be. We will also be watching the Saints game closely on Sunday to see if Kromer's committee creates any issues.
