Saints lineman Zach Strief has found an unusual New Orleans restaurant where he can satisfy both his cravings for Creole cooking and his hunger to give back.
While Strief enjoys the restaurant's white beans and shrimp, it's no ordinary lunch spot in the Big Easy - known for famous eateries and fine Creole cuisine. It's a noon-profit restaurant established to give troubled youth a chance to succeed in a uniquely New Orleans way.

But the program is showing teenagers like 19-year-old former gang member Kentrell Morrow ''success is obtainable.''

"I found out very quickly four years ago that this is the biggest rival that the Atlanta Falcons have," Falcons coach Mike Smith...
I recently overheard a Falcons fan say he had his team’s Monday night match-up against the Saints circled on his calendar. I chuckled to myself and thought, “Cute.”
You see, I can appreciate the rivalry, the implications and all the hype surrounding the NFC South battle that’s about to go down in the Superdome, but I sadly don’t respect the Falcons enough to spotlight...
