New Orleans Saints offensive tackles best quote from the 2021 season:

“I think one important thing will be the mind-set of, if you’re not the starter coming out of training camp, just to be ready. Not just be ready to play a game, but that you might be called upon to start 14, 15, 16 games throughout the season. I think just having that urgency of game planning week-to-week and understanding that you might not play this week or be active on the roster this week, but next week that could very well change. Every guy is one play away (from having to play). That’s the type of sport this is. I think that lesson will stick. I think the lesson of communication, how important that is, how important establishing how to communicate with teammates, and understanding and learning each guy individually as well. I think those things are going to stick with guys for a long time.” James Hurst
