2. Ken Dorsey, Offensive Coordinator, Buffalo Bills

While there has been some conflicting opinions on Ken Dorsey this season, his work, as a whole, does speak positively. The Buffalo Bills have endured some hiccups throughout the 2023 season, but not all of them can be attributed to the offense. Buffalo's defense has been sneakily susceptible to the pass, and that's not on Dorsey.

Buffalo's offense still remains a top-5 unit in football under Dorsey. Despite Josh Allen's turnovers still being an issue at times, the Bills are putting up over 370 yards of offense and 26.7 points per game (good for fifth-best in the NFL).

Buffalo ranks fifth in the NFL in passing as well, and if Dorsey came to New Orleans to work with Carr and company, maybe he could launch this offense into the top 10. Dorsey learned under Brian Daboll, of course, who was credited with really developing Allen into the quarterback he is today. Dorsey has been with the Buffalo organization since 2019, where he started as the quarterbacks coach. He also coached quarterbacks in Carolina back when Cam Newton was in his prime.

If you're telling me the Saints' offense could operate similarly to the current Buffalo Bills, I'm in.
