Found January 14, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
This is actually something I’d expect to hear from the likes of Mr. Skip Bayless. Colin Cowherd isn’t a stranger to his dubious opinions at times, but they are after all his opinions. On Cowherd’s afternoon radio show on ESPN ‘The Herd’ he spent a lot of time heaping praise on rookie QB Russell Wilson. And to his credit, Wilson deserves that praise, despite the loss, but he’s had a remarkable season. Cowherd decided to one up all others by flat out proclaiming that Russell Wilson has now elevated himself to a top 5 Quarterback in the NFL, even better in some regards than Drew Brees. I don’t know why I have to wait to say that I think the guy is a top 5-6 Quarterback in the League…He’s Drew Brees, with a better arm and better feet. Do you Agree?

Re-Signing Jermon Bushrod Saints Top Priority This Offseason?

According to Saints GM Mickey Loomis, re-signing unrestricted free agent left tackle Jermon Bushrod will be the biggest challenge facing the Saints front office this offseason, per Sheldon Mickles of the Baton Rouge Advocate. “It’s going to be subject to what his perceived market is and what we’re able to do. He’s the No. 1 tough deal,” Loomis said of Bushrod. As thing...

Saints Nation: Can Obama Help Saints Get 2nd Round Pick Back?

Take the time to go to THIS WEBSITE and sign the petition for executive order that Roger Goodell give the Saints their 2nd round pick back. My friend Ralph Malbrough took the time to put this together so that we can finally put "Bounty Gate" to bed. Goodell shouldn't be allowed to ruin our 2013 season as well, which is already affected by the fact that Sean Payton can...

Saints Nation's Top 10 Plays of the 2012 Season: #8 - Patrick Robinson Pushed Mike Williams Out ...

Besides the Falcons win at home, I think the Bucs win on the road was the most memorable Saints game of the season. This one was full of big plays and you will be able to enjoy a couple others as we get deeper into this series. For #8 on the year, though, I've picked the play that ended the game, with Patrick Robinson pushing Mike Williams out of bounds to seal the deal. Williams...

Payton, who was suspended for the season by Goodell for his role in the Saints bounty scandal, is eligible...

New Orleans Saints 2013 Needs

How valuable is Head Coach Sean Payton? Well, if you look just at records, you could say he’s worth 6 wins, as the Saints went from 13-3 in 2011 to 7-9 in 2012. However, Payton’s absence wasn’t the only reason for the decline. Drew Brees’ numbers were still great without Payton, not as good as they were in 2011, but it’s unrealistic to expect him to produce like that every...
