Saints reporter Larry Holder has great response to Jahri Evans criticism
New Orleans Saints beat reporter Larry Holder, who has written for The Times-Picayune since 2012, wrote a piece earlier this week that included some criticism of All-Pro offensive guard Jahri Evans. While Holder noted that it was Evans’ blocking that sprung two crucial touchdowns in a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he also concluded that Evans was “chewed up” by Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy for much of the game. Evans did not appreciate that.
@LarryHolder Good luck on winning the Pulitzer award…..

Holder was simply doing his job. The Saints are off to an incredibly disappointing start and should have been able to manhandle a Bucs team that was on the road for a third consecutive week. But don’t worry, Holder got the last laugh with a perfectly-executed comeback.

Burned. The Sun Herald in Mississippi won a Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina. Holder was with the paper at the time and took part in the honors. Evans and his 2-3 Saints are now very much aware of that.
