According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, ESPN is working on a character study of both Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
“A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that ESPN plans to televise this weekend a “character study TV feature” on Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
“ESPN has contacted players via letters signed by Barry Abrams, a Feature Producer. Abrams invites players to call and “chat . . . for 10 minutes or so” on the subject, explaining that the story will run on September 29 or 30,” wrote Florio.
It will be interesting to see what ESPN comes up with in their “character study” and how they decide to spin it.

The New Orleans Saints are off to a bad start and they know it. They are sitting at 0-3 after both sides of the ball have failed to shine at critical moments.

When the bounty suspensions were handed down by Roger Goodell this summer and the New Orleans Saints found out they were going to be without head coach Sean Payton for the season -- and without assistant head coach (and obvious choice for interim coach) Joe Vitt for the first six games -- I promise you that more than a few of the Saints players thought, "No problem."
There are a number of enticing games as we enter week four of the NFL season. Still, the most intriguing game of the week involves a 1-2 team and an 0-3 team.
That game, of course, is Sunday when the New Orleans Saints travel to Green Bay in what could become their last stand for saving their season.
The Saints have become a caricature of all teams stuck at 1-2 or worse. The...
A street performer covered from head to toe in sparkling paint sits atop a garbage can on Bourbon Street. Above his battered tip bucket is a cardboard sign that reads, "To NFL Roger Goodell."
The "Gold Man" then sends his message for the cameras with a middle-finger salute -- and he says business has never been better.
Not far from New Orleans Saints headquarters...
I've had the same poll up on the left hand side of the blog forever, so it's time for a new one. My previous question was regarding the Saints' new free agents, and which you were most excited about. Curtis Lofton landed 70.6% of the vote, so you the fans clearly picked him as the guy you were most excited about. And sure enough, he's the only that's really lived...
The last quarterback the NFL's lowest-ranked defense should want to face next?
But if the New Orleans Saints are going to rise from the league basement, finding a way to stymie the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player is a must in Sunday's game at Green Bay (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, FOX).
Among the biggest reasons for the Saints' 0-3 start is a defense...
New Orleans Saints (0-3) at Green Bay Packers (1-2)
The Saints and Packers are a combined 1-5 three weeks in the season. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I strangely see no hands. This is a huge, must win game for both teams, and given that we should expect huge performances from both quarterbacks. You know it’s really not sitting well with both of these quarterbacks that...
The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers have been two of the NFC’s best for the past 3 years and have had some of the most explosive offenses in history, largely due to the play of their all-pro QBs, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. This year, the pass-happy offenses that lit up the league [...]
