The Sins of the New Orleans Saints

Nice Saints analysis from Robert Mays at Grantland:. The Saints’ status as a preseason favorite was based, at least in part, on how much better they were playing defense. Even if they do start to figure things out, they aren’t likely to be anywhere near what many (hi again) predicted this summer. The chance to have a top-10 unit has vanished into the French Quarter on a Friday...

Mailbag: New Orleans Saints Sean Payton/Rob Ryan/Mickey Loomis on the hot seat?

Nick, I’m at sea. This season has been an absolute disaster, and I find myself reaching for people to place blame upon. It’s easy to blame the players – they are the ones that are out there on the field losing; however, is there any blame to be had amongst the coaching staff and front office? And if so, should any of them lose their jobs if this train wreck continues? – Wayward...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints: 2014 Week 5 NFL Pick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) at New Orleans Saints (1-3) The Saints are 1-3, which has caused some people to hit the panic button for them, much like they did for the Packers last week (how did that work out?). The Saints did not look good in Dallas last week, but you have to look at more than their record. Three of their first four games have been on the road and they came very close...

New Orleans Saints shut out of NFL offensive awards (and disappointments) so far

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Is Julius Thomas the best tight end playing in the NFL today?

Most sportswriters would tell you that Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints is the best tight end playing in the NFL today. I am not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, Graham is a fine tight end but I consider him to be a wide receiver in all but name only. If you take issue with that you should know that Graham himself made the same argument when he was trying to renegotiate his...

Twitter Tuesday: Dez Bryant disrespects New Orleans Saints

Dez Bryant has never been a quiet person, but after waxing the Saints on national television his ego got the better of him. Dez Bryant, jogging down the tunnel to the locker room, yelling: “Who Dat? We Dat. Yeah, I said it.” — David Helman (@HelmanDC) September 29, 2014   I understand that you’re all fired up from a huge win, but you have to have a bit more tact than that...

Saints’ Sean Payton: ‘I don’t think we discuss the postseason at 1-3′

The New Orleans Saints were considered by some to be Super Bowl contenders.  But after Sunday night’s 38-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Saints are just 1-3 this season. “It’s challenging. It’s disappointing. It’s frustrating,” coach Sean Payton said Sunday.  “But that’s on all of us right now. It’s on me, it’s on our staff, it’s on the team and those are...

Saints embarrassed by Cowboys in Dallas 38-17

The Saints lost on the road again, but this time it wasn’t by a last second game winning field goal. Instead, they were completely outplayed in all phases as they lost 38-17. The score was 24-0 at halftime in favor of the Cowboys and the game was never in doubt. Many will wonder what has happened to the Saints and to me it’s pretty clear. This game is on everyone in the organization...

Tony Dungy Can't Believe New Orleans Saints HC Sean Payton Went for the Fake Punt

As the second half of the Sunday night game between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints went on it appeared as if Drew Brees and the Saints might be able to pull off a comeback.

Drew Brees says he is in favor of Goodell having less power

Goodell has made it clear that he won’t resign as commissioner so most of his critics are looking for the next best thing.

WATCH: Drew Brees loses it after being slammed

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is usually calm and collected on the field. But in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, after CB Captain Munnerlyn came free and sacked him late in the third quarter, he lost it. It wasn’t about the sack, though. It was about the way he finished it. Munnerlyn blitzed off the edge on the play and as he hit the QB, he grabbed and slammed...
