Canal Street Chronicles: Generation Next

Filling Dave Cariello’s shoes isn’t going to be easy, but I’m damn sure going to try.

I find myself in an interesting position right now. I feel like I’m that next guy up having to fill in for a legend like Brett Favre or Peyton Manning, and it’s hard to imagine how it will go.

You yourself are probably wondering the same as well.

Let me first say that Dave Cariello will always be a legend to this site after his eight years of pouring into Canal Street Chronicles. Life happens fast, and you can’t be anything but happy for this guy. As a family man myself, I can absolutely relate to his situation. In many ways, I admire him for making this decision, as it was likely a very difficult one.

Dave referenced in his stepping down post that he would like to stay if the new managing editor would have him, and that’s an easy and resounding ‘absolutely’. You don’t just toss out someone like that, and I’m a firm believer that his legacy will remain with this site.

A little about me

After several faithful years of being a managing editor with FanSided and Who Dat Dish, I honestly never expected to be approached and asked to do this.

While you may or may not know me or my work, I only have to say that it will speak for itself. I take a very objective approach when talking about the New Orleans Saints, and it’s one of the things I firmly believe that has helped me earn gigs with The Sun Herald and WDSU News. I’ve also made radio and television appearances locally in the Crescent City.

You might not like or agree with all I have to say, and that’s okay. I don’t think there’s any question that Who Dat Nation has one of the most passionate fan bases in the NFL, and it consistently shows up in a big way.

I’ve often had visions of where life would take me after countless posts and connections I have made over the past four years. I always questioned whether or not things I did made a difference. I believe they do, and it’s time for more people to see that.

I’m thrilled with the opportunity to bring in this new era of Canal Street Chronicles, and giving you the coverage you desire for the black and gold.

Thank you, and look forward to exciting things to come.
