Former St. Louis Rams LB James Laurinaitis, uh, had some interesting quotes today on the, the um...well, here:
#Saints' James Laurinaitis: I think it’s refreshing to me to be in a place where they’ve won, the expectations are to get back to that.— Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) June 2, 2016
Laurinaitis: Went to St. Louis where we had to try climb out of it. Get here, hear 7-9 isn't acceptable. Awesome to be around that hunger.— Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) June 2, 2016
That's from Larry Holder, the New Orleans Saints beat writer for the NO Times-Picayune, the leading paper in the Big Easy.
I'll let readers form their own opinion since it's Laurinaitis' words and not those of an analyst.
For reference, the Saints have had seven-win seasons in three of the last four years as have the Rams.
Since Laurinaitis was taken in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, the Saints are 69-43. The Rams are 37-74-1 in the same time period.
Laurinaitis was released on Feb. 9 after seven NFL seasons all with the Rams.
