“@SI_PeterKing: Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain, David Hawthorne. Get the message, Jonathan Vilma?”that u know how to type peoples names?? — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) April 3, 2012 Yesterday, Peter King tweeted out the names of three linebackers the Saints have signed in the last week and a half, along with a vague needling remark directed at Jonathan Vilma. Presumably, PK is implying that the Saints see the writing on the wall for Vilma, as well as others, and are scurrying to have replacements on hand for when the Ginger Banhammer falls on one or more of their defensive players. Of course, it being PK, the message would never be that clear. So cheer to Vilma for calling Peter out on his sanctimonious douchebaggery as well as his general lack of coherence. @SI_PeterKing reckless journalism is beneath you sir. You’ve become a glorified blogger — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) April 3, 2012 Probably could have done without the cheap blogger slam, but those are par for the cou...

Jonathan Vilma and Peter King are beefing on Twitter

Jonathan Vilma and Peter King traded a few shots over Twitter Tuesday after King pointed out that the Saints were signing linebackers to prepare for potential bounty suspensions. The Sports Illustrated NFL writer singled out Vilma with this tweet: Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain, David Hawthorne. Get the message, Jonathan Vilma? — Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) April 3, 2012 King...

Saints' Brees hoping for shot at Kentucky Derby glory

Drew Brees has already won a Super Bowl and now has his sights set on the Kentucky Derby. The New Orleans Saints quarterback is part-owner of a racehorse named Holy Candy, who could end up running at Churchill Downs in Louisville on the first Saturday in May, if all goes well. Holy Candy, having raced only four times, winning once, was a surprise late-entry Wednesday in Saturday...

Sean Payton and The Saints: Appealing and making a huge miscalculation

The New Orleans Saints are quickly becoming the bad boys of the NFL. Just recently, Sean Payton indicated how sorry he was for the bounty program that Gregg Williams ran as the Saints defensive coordinator. But Payton has eschewed his position and is filing an appeal of his suspension of one year that was handed out by Commissioner Roger Goodell. Why file an appeal if you’ve already...

Parcells makes perfect sense for Saints

Roger Goodell, the same man who levied the suspension, will hear Sean Payton's appeal on Thursday. And the odds are slim that Goodell will shorten his season-long suspension of Payton for basically misleading NFL investigators and not putting a stop to Bountygate when the league first checked out the allegations at the end of the 2009 season, just weeks before Payton and the...

Goodell won’t prevent Saints from hiring Bill Parcells

In what has become rare for the team these days — fortunate news — there is one less roadblock to worry about in the Saints’ pursuit to rustle Bill Parcells out of retirement as the substitute head coach. Per the Associated Press, commissioner Roger Goodell stated he won’t prevent New Orleans from hiring Parcells, saying, “That’s their decision.” “That’s their...

Sean Pamphilon released a statement regarding the Saints bounty audio

Sean Pamphilon, the filmaker who released the damning audio of former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams talking about hitting 49ers receiver Kyle Williams hard enough to see if he can take a hit after suffering multiple concussions during the season and then told his team to essentially take out Michael Crabtree ‘s ACL, has released a statement on his website...

Vilma, Saints prepare for possible bountygate charges

According to the Associated Press, the NFLPA has told players that will be interviewed by the NFL with regards to the bountygate scandal that it would be in those players' best interests to have a lawyer and a union representative present during any meetings with the league. Are we surprised by this? No, but the suggestion underscores just how serious this matter really is. ...

NFL: Out With the Old and In With the New

WOOOOO, Baseball Season, Get, Uh, Um, Excited!

Judging from the building rumble of Norman Rockwell Americana, it appears as though another GOP convention or a baseball season is about to start. [Checks Google News] Yep, baseball season. Or it already got a soft launch last week with a two-game series in Japan that nobody noticed. Either way, baseball is back, y’all. I’m not gonna launch into a trollish rant claiming that...
