THROUGH THE WIRE
Sean Payton has done some interesting things while he’s been banned from the NFL, but nothing compares to the 48-year-old getting braces. Yes, those are braces on his teeth. The guy is running around New Orleans or wherever looking like Ted Stroehmann.Our research team seems to believe these braces were installed within the last week or so and debuted over the weekend at a couple...
In the aftermath of Sean Payton being suspended by Roger Goodell for the entire season, “Free Sean Payton” t-shirts began to pop up all over the web. But one place we never thought one of those t-shirts would pop up is in a photo with Roger Goodell himself.
Well, that all changed when a Saints fan who posts under the name,”2009ring” on SaintsReport.com posted the picture...

Jason WhitneySaints’ receiver Joe Morgan won’t watch ESPN because of Skip Bayless
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan apparently is not a big fan of Skip Bayless. So much so, that he refuses to watch ESPN because of him. Wait a minute, the room is spinning…someone doesn’t like Skip Bayless? All jokes aside, Morgan made a ridiculous acrobatic touchdown play and will...
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints continued to lead his team in the right direction on Sunday. In Week 7, Brees carried his team to a big win over their division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brees began with a monster first half, and was able to close it out in the second.

Saints receiver Joe Morgan said he was over his mini-scare from Sunday that sent him to a Tampa-area hospital for observations. Morgan injured his chest during the third quarter of the Saints' 35-28 victory over Tampa Bay when he leaped to catch a deep Drew Brees pass before for colliding with a pair of Buccaneer defenders.
Like Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer said following...
The last time Peyton Manning and Drew Brees met - in Super Bowl XLIV - the game ended with Brees and the New Orleans Saints raising the Lombardi Trophy.
Manning will be looking for a bit of revenge Sunday night as the Denver Broncos host the Saints, who play their first game under interim coach Joe Vitt.
A lot has changed since that matchup in February 2010. Of course, Manning...
I know, I know, you might think that I am crazy for saying this. But I firmly believe that The Madden Curse is real and I HAVE PROOF! Here are the stats of the last few Madden Cover players and the failing seasons that they have had.
2011: New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Had a good year, but the Saints were beat by the Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns starting linebacker Scott Fujita will be placed on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his stormy season -- and perhaps his football career.
Fujita, one four players suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal, was inactive the past two games. He last started on Oct. 7 in a game against the...

The Tampa Bay Offense. The Saints won? Oh right, like you had any doubt. You expect the New Orleans offense to fire on all cylinders. Tampa Bay on the other hand, not so much. Free Agent acquisition Vincent Jackson goes for 216...
