The Penalty Flag:
Is there any team hotter in the NFL right now than the New Orleans Saints? After getting off to a 0-4 start, the Saints have won four of their last five games. Sunday’s win over the previously undefeated Atlanta Falcons puts the Saints at 4-5 with seven games remaining. If the Saints can continue their winning ways they could very well make a late season push for the playoffs. Getting in to the postseason is key as a hot New Orleans team could very well go on a Super Bowl run similar to last year’s 9-7 New York Giants.
Why the sudden turnaround for quarterback Drew Brees, and company? The answer is offensive balance, and it could have Saints fans dancing in the streets of New Orleans come February.… Read more

Even though the Buccaneers took a tough loss to the Saints a few weeks ago there was one winner: the Bucs Cheerleaders. Granted this squad is always a winner in my book (my favorite cheering squad in the NFL) they pulled off an even bigger victory by whipping out the old school uniforms.
It was bright orange and “stewardess” type gear. Unfortunately Drew Brees wasn’t...
