SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New Orleans Saints' search for second starting cornerback failed from the start

The New Orleans Saints were on easy street at cornerback, for once, during the 2013 season. They weren't going to find much better than Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer. The tandem stood as one of the primary factors in such an over-achieving turnaround on defense last season. New Orleans was 8-2 when Lewis and Greer started together. Greer then sustained what turned out to be...

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Mailbag: Is there a precedent to move on from New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees?

Nick, there’s no question it’s been a difficult season so far. In light of Drew Brees’ late interception against the Lions, I have to ask if the Saints should move on from Brees this offseason like the Colts did with Peyton Manning? – Carl Carl, I understand your frustration and Brees certainly hasn’t been at his best this year. But we need to be careful with this kind...

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees deemed one of Week 7′s biggest goats

Nearly midway through the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Sean Payton to reporter: “Be quiet”

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was quite testy during his press conference after Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. Next question.

Video: Sean Payton tells reporter to ‘be quiet’ after being interrupted during press conference

Do not attempt to interrupt New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton when he's in the middle of speaking. One particular reporter learned the hard way in the news conference that followed Sunday's game—which the (2-4) Saints lost to the Lions, 24-23. Things got a bit chippy in the presser after the game. Payton was first asked a question that he didn't like. So he...

Sean Payton Tells Reporters To ‘Shut Up’

Sean Payton kept it real today, perhaps a little too real.  We understand your frustration, coach, but keep your cool when talking to reporters. It’s ironic that mainstream teams are getting criticized for their record but no one is really saying anything about the Saints, yet. Today, the Saints lost to the Detroit Lions. The post game presser was quite interesting. “Next question...

Saints suffer inexplicable loss 24-23 to Lions

The Saints are now 2-4, somehow, and all we can chalk this up to is some sort of road voodoo. The Saints were up 23-10 and in complete control of this game until a comedy of errors and referee contribution helped the Lions pull off the improbable comeback. This loss hurts worse than the Falcons game and Browns game and it will leave a mark both literally and figuratively. Multiple...
