The Saints Nation:
New Orleans Saints
New England Patriots
St. Louis Rams
Today we look at a position group that's been fairly depleted over the last few years in terms of talent. Robert Meachem bolted for San Diego, Devery Henderson got too old, and Adrian Arrington never really panned out. What's left behind a couple reliable but aging starters is a slew of youngsters with some ability but lots of unknowns. I view the receiving corp as a pretty wide open battle with so many unproven players. Predicting how this plays out in terms of the 53 man roster is difficult, but the Saints need someone to emerge as a clear cut #4 for this offense to continue to perform at the peak level. Here are the players:
Marques Colston: The quiet storm continues to be as effective and solid as ever. He did have some drop and fumble issues at times last season, but he continues to be largely very reliable. He provides a huge target for Brees that moves the chains and regardless of how well covered he is, Brees will never fear to fit a ball in a tight window for ...

The New Orleans Saints offense has been in the top 5 every season since Sean Payton took over, breaking records and shredding defenses alike. Given this fact, one would not think anything needs to change (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it); however, expect there to be a change in the look and style of the offense, most notably the use of the two tight end set.
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was selected after Rob Gronkowski (round 2) and before Aaron Hernandez (round four), but right now he’s on top of the NFL TE’s list.
The summer of discontent in New England stretches to the fallen duo and their status as the two best TE’s in the league.
Graham was selected between the two tight ends in the third round; however,...
“With the 95th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints select…Aaron Hernandez.”
It almost happened that way and thank Goodness it didn’t. Three years ago, the Saints were on the hunt for a tight end with their third round pick. Rob Gronkowski had just been snagged by the Patriots in Round 2. Jimmy Graham of the University of Miami and Aaron Hernandez of the...

New Orleans Head Coach Sean Payton filed for divorce from his wife Beth about a year ago. Now we’re finding out who the woman is that Sean reportedly left his wife for — Our source tells us the former suspended coach left his wife for Kenny Chesney’s sloppy seconds, a girl named Skylene Montgomery. Sean and Skylene were dating back in 2011. Supposedly...

Drew Brees is my #1 ranked QB this season, because year in and year out as the Saints’ QB, he finishes either #1 or right at the top. With Sean Payton and Mickey Mouse in his corner, he should be right there again in 2013.

Marques Colston Turns 30 Years Old
Even with Chris Ivory traded away, I view the running back position as one of the most stable positions on the entire roster. In fact, that's exactly why Ivory was traded, an overload of talent at the position. There's a lot of variety at that position with a 1st round draft pick, a couple undrafted players that make an impact, and a free agent that demanded a medium priced...
Andrew Juge and Kevin Held join Ralph to do a podcast with hardly any actual Saints news. It's July and that's a good thing. The boys wonder if the 2013 Patriots = 2012 Saints. Meaning experts and fans will think huge missing pieces won't matter. Plus random thoughts on the NFL.
In actual Saints talk Ralph has talked himself into the awesomeness of the Ben Watson...
