Welcome to NFC South Nuggets, where the most biased Falcon fan from the Gritz Blitz blog presents some NFC South links in the most biased way possible. It is a great week around the NFC South if you are a Falcon fan. Now it is time to "get [our] ducks in a row" as if we were Saints players about to give the NFL "categorical denials" of our activities.
You say they franchised me? Excuse me. I need to flip over a Mardi-Gras float.
Arguably the 18th biggest issue facing the Saints is their lack of cap space. New Orleans is currently believed to have about $6 to $7 million free, meaning they are out of the running to sign Carl Nicks, Marques Colston or anyone who had any football relevance the past few years, considering their desperate need for depth.
Speaking of complete football irrelevance, the Saints brought in Randy Moss for a work out so everyone forgets about whatever caused Roger Goodell to privately say, "God forbid this is true," or w...

The hits keep on coming for the New Orleans Saints. With severe penalties on the horizon from Bountygate, Saints Quarterback, Drew Brees is said to be “livid” about being tagged as the Saints franchise player. Apparently Brees will not sign it. If he doesn’t sign, he’ll probably be holding out once training camp starts. Just what the Saints need.

Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune was a guest of Mike Florio’s on PFT Live on Thursday and indicated that Saints quarterback Drew Brees won’t sign his franchise tender and plans on skipping offseason workouts when they begin in April.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees posted a letter to his fans on his website denying any knowledge of the team's bounty system - which was conducted over the last three seasons.
"There is no place in the National Football League, or any sport played at any level, for players to conspire, to be coerced, or to be incentivized to intentionally injure another player...
When Marques Colston had a surprising rookie season, all that was talked about is how he was drafted in the 7th round and was from Hofstra. He did put up numbers that are reserved for 1st and 2nd rounders. 70 receptions for 1038 yards and 8 TDs. Drew Brees had a surprising 1st year in New Orleans, after all, he had just had shoulder surgery. He wasn’t thought of as being elite...

It's a sad day for Indianapolis Colts fans, but a no-brainer for the franchise.
So where will Peyton play next? We have an idea.
Plus, Drew Brees is selfish and Plaxico Burress gets it.
Did I just write that?
It's time for a sizzling Schein 9:
1. Selfish Brees
The Saints have big issues on their plate. How's that for the understatement of the century?
NEW ORLEANS, March 6— According to sources, Randy Moss’ workout today with the New Orleans Saints “could not have gone better.” In the midst of all of the drama that surrounds that organization right now, if that is true there are a variety of upsides to this situation.
Please click the link to read the rest of this story to find out what stat Moss could create for himself...
The notion seems ridiculous when you consider what the team’s current signal caller has done for the club like setting the single season passing record last year and taking the team to the Super Bowl and winning it just two years ago.
Had the announcement come that the New Orleans Saints had signed him to a lucrative multi-year deal it would have come as no surprise, but instead...
The month of March has not been kind to the Who Datters. It began with the reports that general manager Mikey Loomis was soft-pedaling the talents of his elite franchise quarterback and then proceeded to get exponentially worse with the fulmination of GregggggggGggggate. If only matters smoothed over, we’d assume that the team might be able to outlast this catastrophe, but, alas...
The first football jersey I ever had was a full Bobby Hebert football uniform that I proudly wore for to celebrate my 4th Halloween. Before Drew Brees and Aaron Brooks and after Archie Manning, there was the Cajun Cannon. Those Saints teams were known for the dominating Dome Patrol defense, but Hebert did make one Pro Bowl in 1993 and had offensive weapons like Eric Martin, Dalton...
