EMMANUEL LEWIS ROCKS IT!
Emmanuel Lewis takes on Falcon Stephen Nicholas in a dance off.
Chris Ivory doesn't know why he didn't get his first chance to carry the ball until the eighth game of the season.
The Saints running back figured the best thing he could do during the first seven weeks of the season was simply stay sharp and focused, so that he could be relied upon when his number finally was called.
''I still don't get it. I just played the...
Linebacker Curtis Lofton left Atlanta just in time to miss out on the Falcons' best start to a season in franchise history.
Now a defensive leader for the struggling Saints, Lofton insists he has no regrets, did what was right for him and is eager to experience one of the NFL's more intense and longstanding rivalries from the other side when the Saints (3-5) host unbeaten...
Last week it was reported that Sean Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints has been voided by the NFL and he’ll be free to sign with any team he likes once the season is over.
According to Dan Parr of ProFootballWeekly.com, even though both Payton and the Saints have indicated that they plan on working everything out, both sides haven’t been talking.
However, our sources...
I have just one hope: that none of you had Doug Martin on the bench last week.
I had Martin ranked 9th, which, come to find out, was just a bit low. His 251 rushing yards and four touchdowns vaulted him to the number one spot in the running back rankings.
Fear the Muscle Hamster.
Obviously, Martin can’t duplicate his monster performance this week against San Diego, but the moral...
Pepsi recently unveiled a commercial that depicted a showdown between Drew Brees and One Direction for the last can of Pepsi. The concept was decent, the execution was mediocre (why are fans of various NFL teams cheering for Brees? No Saints fans?) and the singing from Brees was, as expected, dreadful.
Now Pepsi has released the second part of the ad showing what happened if...
The Atlanta Falcons are starting to get questions about perfection.
The Falcons (8-0) have gotten off to the best start in franchise history, but lineman Tyson Clabo points out that they're still only halfway through the regular season, with a number of tough games still to come. That includes a trip to New Orleans on Sunday, plus a December game against the Super Bowl champion...
Will a can of ice-cold Pepsi bring pop stars One Direction and NFL quarterback Drew Brees together… or tear them apart? See what happens this time around when the music sensations and sports icon go head-to-head in pursuit of Pepsi refreshment.-TO

Drew Brees Teams up with One Direction
The Falcons have released Lousaka Polite and have re-signed Mike Cox, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Michael Turner has rushed 128 times for 517 yards and is on pace for another 1,000-yard season, but the offense is averaging 376.5 yards passing, which is eight in the league and the Falcons are hoping to provide some balance with some better lead...
The '72 Dolphins. Almost the '07 Patriots. Perfection is, and will always be, a headline in the sports world, due to its rarity.For the Atlanta Falcons, currently 8-0, perfection remains an option. But nothing is guaranteed. Last season, the 13-0 Green Bay Packers got clipped by the 5-8 Kansas City Chiefs, when freshly-interim coach Romeo Crennel neutralized Aaron Rodgers...
If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...
As the undefeated Falcons march into the Superdome for a match up with the Saints on Sunday a question lingers. How are the Atlanta Falcons going to combat a very relevant and potent Saints aerial attack. The answer lies in one place and that is the interior defensive line. With Peria Jerry’s status in doubt for Sunday the Falcons have a prime opportunity to give their 2012 seventh...
