Found September 27, 2013 on The Football Fan Spot:
Miami Dolphins (3-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-0) The Saints have held all 3 of their opponents this season to 17 or fewer points this season, something they did a total of 3 times last season. Young stars have broken out, especially Cameron Jordan, who is playing like an All-Pro back at his collegiate position of 5-technique defensive end. The offense doesn’t look right yet, but I don’t have big concerns about that going forward. The Saints could possibly be as complete as they’ve been in years this season. The Dolphins are also 3-0, but I haven’t really changed from my pre-season projection for them because none of their wins have surprised me all that much. Teams win 3 games in a row all the time (22 of 32 teams did last season, including these Dolphins, who finished 7-9) and it’s not usually that impressive, but it’s just so much more noticeable when it happens at the start of the season. I’m not saying the Dolphins are the 2011 Bills or the 2012 Cardinals, but they are the worst...

Saints fans give wide receiver Robert Meachem’s touchdown ball back

In a common touchdown celebration that all football players do, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem flipped the ball into the stands last Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals. Meachem thought about the touchdown and it dawned on him that it really meant a lot to him since this is his second stint with the New Orleans Saints, after having a dismal time with San Diego Chargers...

A complete breakdown of the Dolphins next opponent; the Saints

The Miami Dolphins game against the New Orleans Saints is keeping me up later than I’d like to be. All I can say for sure it’s that I wish we would’ve played them last year instead of this year, but it is what it is thus we must move forward with our schedule. I took a look at this game 2 days ago, based on Miami’s success against Atlanta and now, as the Monday night game...

All the Dolphins do is score touchdowns

There are a variety of reasons why the Miami Dolphins are number one at red zone scoring efficiency this year with an 87.5% touchdown conversion rate.  The first reason is obvious and Brian Hartline describes it with just two words, “better players”.  Miami’s three scores on the road against the Indianapolis Colts outline are proof of a more explosive line-up.

Week four fantasy football sabermetrics: RB rankings

In case you missed it, I’ve just introduced sabermetrics to fantasy football. The format is easy enough: I calculate who the highest risk players are for the week, then figure out who the highest reward guys are. Factoring in both risk and reward, an overall value is calculated, with the ideal player being low risk and high reward. The math factors in carries, fantasy points, matchup...

Blast from the Past: 20 years ago today, Bryan Cox told Bills they were #1

The rivalry between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins use to be one of the best games to watch. Well why the two teams have not been that good lately, we are reminded that it was twenty years ago today when Bryan Cox told the Bills fans they were NOT the best fans. If this […]

Ingram debunks rumors he's seeking a trade from Saints

Thursday, Saints running back Mark Ingram barreled head on into the dicey discussion of whether he's seeking a trade. After less-than-ideal results for Ingram in this young season, rumors swirled he wanted out of New Orleans, especially after he missed this past Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals with a toe injury. There was no sign of Ingram on the sidelines,...

Best friends become foes as Dolphins meet Saints

Just across the Mississippi River from the world-famous French Quarter is neighborhood called Algiers, where Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace and Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis became playmates around age 5. Their friendship went beyond sports. Wallace didn't even play football until Lewis persuaded him to go out for their high school team at O. Perry Walker. A decade later, they...

Saints Nation: Interior Depth An Issue for Saints

We saw how much having Jahri Evans healthy meant to this team last week as undrafted rookie Tim Lelito started his first game and struggled mightily going up against Darnell Dockett. Evans was active and dressed in that game, mind you, because Tim Lelito is their only backup interior lineman. The Saints also have Bryce Harris and Terron Armstead as reserve linemen, but both are tackles...

Know your enemy: an interview with Saints Nation Blog

    Earlier this week I had a chance to speak with Andrew Juge, the managing editor of Saints Nation Blog.  The conversation, quite honestly went back and forth with some trash talk, but these are the questions I posed to to Andrew.     1. What frightens you about the Dolphins offense?  The Dolphins have Mike Wallace and you...

Miami Football: The Beast Unleashed – Miami Needs an Indoor Practice Facility

Nailed It! 2013: Settling into the groove in Week 3

“The Saints are who we thought they were.” That is what I would imagine Denny Green would say if he looked at the results of this past week. For the first time in the history of the Pantheon, we had 10 people get a prediction correct on a single game.  That prediction just so happened […]The post Nailed It! 2013: Settling into the groove in Week 3 by Troy Monson appeared first...
