Saints News, 2/4/14: Rob Ryan to Reign as Krewe of Argus' Grand Marshal

New, comments

Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will serve as the Krewe of Argus' 2014 grand marshall. The parade rolls on a Metairie route on Mardi Gras morning. In Greek mythology, Argus is known as a giant with 100 eyes. In Saints lore, Rob Ryan is known as a giant with 100 ways to wreak havoc on a QB.
