Trade With Cardboard Collections: Gordon, Ginter, Sproles, and Blue.

I completed my second trade with Colbey from Cardboard Collections. Colbey contacted me about a few cards from my Want List he could help out with, and our second deal was underway after a few e-mails. I received two relics and a bit of Ginter help when all was said and done.First up, a sweet Darren Sproles relic, complete with a powder blue piece of jersey. Every Chargers' relic...

Why I Traded Drew Brees

Brees has played three of the NFL's worst defenses so far - Redskins, Panthers, and Chiefs - with two of those matchups at home.  Nonetheless, Brees has "just" 904 passing yards, 7 TDs vs. 5 INTs, and a 6.7 YPA.  Not awful stats, certainly, but they're a far cry from the Brees we saw in 2011.  I spent a fair amount of time this week trying to figure out which...

Drew Brees Sees His Saints Fall By One Point to The Packers They Are now 0-4

The New Orleans Saints could get it done, now they are off to a 0-4 start. Drew Brees did what he could in this one, the Saints defense just could stop Aaron Rodgers from finding the end-zone 4 times to give the Packers a one point margin if victory over the Saints. This one has to hurt Bress more than the other three losses. Brees threw for 446 yards and had three touchdown passes...

Juan Eye On: Marques Colston

Time for me to put a smile on that face Juan… Marques Colston was one of my favorite undervalued WRs coming into the season.  Drew Brees was going to throw 5,000 yards again, right?  Colston has easily the 2nd best target after Jimmy Graham coming into the season, but that has not come to fruition.  A foot injury has caused a lack of production and according to reports, he could...

Ref scuffles with Clay Mathews (Video)

The Green Bay Packers were once again on the wrong end of a bad call by officials: With the ball clearly being out of his hands before Darren Sproles hit the ground, the REAL refs ruled that in the above play the runner was down. The Packers had no challenges remaining and the Saints ended up driving down the field for a touchdown.Here’s the ensuing pile-up after the fumble...

PSW week 4 Fantasy recap

Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 4 recap Predicting the Saints to lose and they did I am now 2-2, though not the way I predicted it. Drew Brees showed up and showed up big but it wasn’t enough. Fantasy owners got huge points off the 446 yards and 3 touchdowns. DUD of the week Cam Newton> had him as a fantasy sit against the Falcons and he has his best game of the year. Having...

Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers Outduels Brees in Win vs. Saints

A week after poor officiating by the replacement referees cost Green Bay a victory it looked like a repeat was in the making with the regular referees in their Sunday afternoon game of the week against New Orleans.Some stiff red zone defense and a missed field goal with under three minutes left gave Green Bay the narrowest of victories, 28-27, overcoming the officiating and Drew...

New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers: Week 4 NFL Pick

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...

Green Bay Packers win nail-biter against New Orleans Saints

Now that nobody in Green Bay has fingernails left and some will be sporting new gray hairs on their head it is time to sum up the game. This game featured a battle between the starting quarterbacks as Aaron Rodgers threw for 319 yards and four touchdowns.  Not to be outdone Drew Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns. In terms of offense, the Packers had a solid attack. ...

Packers 28, Saints 27

The New Orleans Saints finally saw an offense they recognized. The result was the same, though - another loss for a team whose tumultuous offseason has spilled over into a winless start. This time Garrett Hartley missed a field goal in a wild ending at Lambeau Field, where the Saints (0-4) blew a fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Green Bay Packers 28-27 on Sunday. ''...
