Brees and his Saints teammates, who are preparing for Thursday night's preseason game with the Patriots, took the day off in Boston to enjoy some of the sights of the city, and more importantly to catch a Red Sox game. The 33-year-old QB seemed excited to be catching a game at...

Offensive shortage leads to defensive display as Patriots win 7-6 (photos)

Sometimes, a good thing can be a bad thing. In saying that, Drew Brees struggled against the Patriots defense. The bad thing is that the Patriots offense did the same thing - struggle. In a game of offensive ineptitude, both defenses showed promise. The Patriots and Saints practiced against each other on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and the knowledge learned stopped both...

Nike swooshes on new NFL jerseys are not backwards (Picture)

Now that Nike is the official sponsor of jerseys across the NFL, a lot of buzz has been created regarding what some perceive to be a backwards Nike swoosh symbol.

  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. By Eric Judd   The Hall of Fame Game Arizona 10 – Saints 17   The Good Yeah, I’m totally worth it. Drew Brees: There is a reason, (okay quite a few reasons) he just got a big fat check. Just watch the first drive of this game.

Saints Nation: Photos From Hall of Fame Weekend

Here are a number of shots taken from Hall of Fame weekend. All photos taken by Anne Juge of Antiques of Paris. Above is one taken with myself and Drew Brees.

State Of Louisiana: Safe Haven For Embattled Quarterbacks

Drew Brees. Zach Mettenberger. And now Robert Bolden. What is it about Louisiana that makes it such a great place for footballers down on their luck? Brees, coming out of a franchise tag, his throwing shoulder torn, his pride wounded, was looking for a home. The Saints gave him one; and now, nearly six years later, he gets roughly the same attention from New Orleans football fans...

Nicks says Bucs ready to shock some teams

TAMPA, Fla. If the Tampa Bay Bucs are going to put up a good front this season, Carl Nicks is just the man to help them do it. The All-Pro left offensive guard, regarded as one of the leagues best with the New Orleans Saints, has the goods to take a solid Bucs offensive line to the next level. The 6-5, 343-pounder was a key element in the Saints ability to pass protect for Drew...

Offensive Line Fantasy Value of the New Orleans Saints
