Saints praise Colston's consistency, reliability

Marques Colston never goes out of his way to be noticed. He became the New Orleans Saints' all-time leader in touchdowns scored this season with 56, yet does not have a touchdown dance. He seldom appears in commercials, and is often hard to find when the locker room at team headquarters is open to reporters. At Dallas last Sunday, Colston's 10 catches for 153 yards put...

Greatest Christmas themed TD Celebration: Saints Pierre Thomas (Video)

After punching it in from inside...

NFL Coroner's Report: New Orleans Saints Autopsy

It's appropriate here to pay tribute to TV's most famous coroner, Mr. Jack Klugman, who passed away Christmas Eve at age 90. Take care, sir, and remember: on those notes that Tony Randall left you in the beyond, "F.U." is nothing vulgar. In case you forget.This week's stuffing of the stiffs provides a challenge for the Football Nation ME's office, as a quartet...

Saints Nation: Thomas Morstead and Jahri Evans to Pro Bowl

Pro Bowl rosters were announced and only two Saints players made it to the starting roster this year. Guard Jahri Evans is headed to the game for the fourth year in a row, and punter Thomas Morstead who is one game away from breaking the all time net yards average record for a season is a first timer. While both are very much deserved, Evans' place amongst the elite group is...

Vitt praises Saints' resolve, aims for .500 finish

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,''...

Jimmy Graham Not Practicing Wednesday

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham missed Wednesday's practice due to a wrist injury which has plagued him all season. It shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game.Fantasy Spin:It could be part of the reason Graham leads the NFL in dropped passes. Despite that, he's still caught 76 balls for 867 yards and eight touchdowns and is a stud at his position.

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Cowboys

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...

Saints Clip Cowboys In OT Thriller: 5 Things We Learned

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.

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Cowboys

  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...
