Saints C de la Puente answering bell when called on
 
METAIRIE, La. ― When Jonathan Goodwin decided to ply his trade elsewhere, the Saints were left in a hole at center.

They signed veteran Olin Kreutz but he walked away from football after the sixth game of the season.

But football is a game of opportunity and for Brian de la Puente, the timing was right.

Now hes a trusted mainstay on the line.

Hes been awesome, Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. Thats a good way to put it. Hes Mr. Steady.

The Saints offense has thrived with de la Puente at center. This past week he helped pave the way for 195 yards rushing.

I think our line has improved with D.L.P., also with Strief back.

Knock on wood - we need a healthy & fast O-line to keep Drew upright & non-harried!!

I like it when a guy grabs the opportunity and runs with it. He has been good for us so far.

How steady has Brian de la Puente been?
“He’s been awesome. That’s a good way to put it. He’s Mr. Steady. I’m really happy for guys like that who maybe bounced around the league, practice squad here for a couple games, get picked up elsewhere, kind of biding time to improve, get better, never get discouraged or frustrated, just kind of wait to be in the right situation or opportunity. He’s found that here. Good thing for us, because I think he’s been a great addition, albeit how he ended up in that spot, but I feel extremely comfortable with him and I know the rest of the offensive line does too.”

...and I read somewhere our record has been excellent the past couple of years in November.

Time for us to rise and shine... and to shake off the doubters.

Don't forget we also got D Thomas back. I think we missed him more than anyone realizes.

It was good to see DT out there.
