Also, it does not make sense that an F grade could be based on a feature most players don't use, as it would not be an F if an equal number of B's and C's were averaged in. Probably there are a lot of complaints ranging from hours to food quality, decor, maybe the dishwashing machine is getting old and missing spots and the fridge sometimes overheats on warm days.
The main complaint according to an article on it was the lack of third meal specifically. The feature wasn't used because it wasn't available, thus the grade. If only a few players answered that question it doesn't take much to affect the grade. That's been one of the caveats of the survey. Sometimes ONLY the squeaky wheels are heard in all categories. That said, the food has been provided by a food service and not area chefs and the facilities have been in the plans to be overhauled for a couple of years anyway.

Excellent decision. Way to support the local franchises. 2030 right around the corner. Kinda looks like they are scouting for a new home.

Too bad that's not included in any survey.

I think the Saints still have him on speed dial.

It wouldn't surprise me to see hiim re sign in N.O. after the draft.

He might work in Kubiak's system if he can stay healthy. He's always been good at getting downfield to block and that's essential for the Shanahan/Kubiak offense. But it would have to be a prove it contract. For sure. Although, he did play fairly well last year. So, we'll see what Kubiak thinks about him after the draft.

It would be funny if the Saints cafeteria was bad on purpose because of past issues with players getting fat, and then they fixed it and players got fat. New Orleans is definitely not known for its health food outside the team facilities, so you combine that with too good of a buffet inside the facilities too, and watch out.

I'm pretty sure they have a nutritionist/dietician on staff.....maybe working with a New Orleans chef.
