Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn set bar eight years ago: pulling out a cell phone from the goalpost to celebrate at Superdome touchdown. Current Saints tailback Pierre Thomas continued the “I really think is a football movie, and not the actual NFL” type TD celebration with a holiday-themed maneuver on Monday Night Football.
After punching it in from inside the five, the former Illini and Chicago southsider pulled out a Saints colored gold bow, and stuck it on the football before handing it to a lucky fan in the stands.
Thomas seemed to have some issues with the adhesive part of the bow; making the process take a bit longer than expected. He eventually figured it out, and with it created a cutesy yet original Christmas themed celebration. And at the same time, the act of benevolence inherit to the act makes it somewhat resistant to outside criticism.
But the referee whistled him for using the ball as a prop and tacitly delaying the game, and gave the Saints runnin...

The New Orleans Saints have professionally been given a reason to say ‘ bah humbug’ as other teams cruise towards the playoffs and they prepare for the end of a grueling season.

According to Dan Parr of ProFootballWeekly.com, the New Orleans may end taking some time this coming offseason to sit down with tight end Jimmy Graham to try to work out a contract extension.
The Saints have not always made it an urgent priority to get extensions done with players before they enter their contract year (see Drew Brees), but our sources expect the team to at least...
Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt is urging his players to keep thinking about the Lombardi Trophy as they prepare for what otherwise is an anticlimactic season finale between two non-playoff teams.
''There's two types of Super Bowl winners: Those that win and those that win one. And our goal is to win two and we're working toward that goal right now,''...
There is no question the better team won this game on Sunday. The Saints' offense move the ball well and struck perfect balance. The offensive line played well, and while numerous mistakes were made, reflected in a very up and down game, the end result was 34 points scored in a win. What's not to like?
Drew Brees: A+ (2.76) To me this was his best game of the...
1. When they are on the Saints can beat anyone.The Saints looked good the last two weeks. They destroyed the Bucs last week and they beat a hot Dallas Cowboy team on the road. Drew Brees, when not throwing interceptions, is out of this world. Even though this team isn’t going to make the playoffs they are still an offensive juggernaut. Brees leads the NFL with 4781...
A victory with mixed emotions for the second consecutive week as the Saints won 34-31 in Dallas. On this same day they were eliminated from any chance at the playoffs due to a Vikings win, and we're left wondering why they couldn't play like this more consistently this season. It was a game full of ups and downs, but there is no question in my mind that the better team won...
Garrett Hartley kicked a 20-yard field in overtime, and the New
Orleans Saints damaged Dallas' playoff hopes with a 34-31 victory
against the Cowboys on Sunday.
The defense had one of their signature games of 2012, riddled with inconsistency. If you take away Dez Bryant and two late fourth quarter drives to make the game interesting, the defense was fantastic throughout. Unfortunately you can't take those things away, and the defense has what would be considered a "bad" game because of it. It's too bad, because this...
The Saints blew a 14-point 4th quarter lead but managed to escape Dallas with a win after a wild overtime ending.
After missing his first field goal attempt earlier in the game, Garrett Hartley nailed his next two, including the overtime game-winner, as the Saints held on in Dallas to beat the Cowboys 34-31.
The Saints finished with 562 total offensive yards, the 5th most...
ARLINGTON, Tex, - Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won't go to the playoffs in their season without suspended coach Sean Payton. The Dallas Cowboys again need help to get there.
