A look ahead: New Orleans Saints face difficult three game stretch

The New Orleans Saints are 3-0 to start the season. The last time they got off to that kind of start was 2009, a season that ended with a Lombardi trophy in New Orleans. Being undefeated at this point of the season is a breath of fresh air compared to last season, where the Saints didn’t get their first win until Week 5. Though the team is feeling great right now, all their hard...

Report: Saints made a contract offer to Jimmy Graham

According to ProFootballTalk.com,  the New Orleans Saints have made a contract offer to tight end Jimmy Graham to lock him up with a long-term extension. The Saints are still waiting for Graham’s reps to respond. But Graham still doesn’t have a new contract.  Per multiple league sources, the Saints have made an offer.  Graham’s camp has not yet responded. Graham is currently...

Sean Payton claims Mark Ingram isn’t on the trade block

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that the Saints might end up trading running back Mark Ingram. Saints head coach Sean Payton told NOLA.com that any trade report regarding running back Mark Ingram are ”completely false” and have “zero credibility.” There’s no doubt that Ingram has been a first round bust so far for New Orleans.  Even if they did want to trade him...

Jimmy Graham mulling over contract offer from Saints

The Saints star tight end Jimmy Graham is proving to be Drew Brees' most reliable weapon so far this season: accounting for 23 receptions, 358 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He's already No. 6 on the list of the Black and Gold's all-time touchdown reception leaders. Now it seems that the Saints' management is ready to talk business, since Graham is in the final...

New Orleans Saints: Saints move to 3-0

The New Orleans Saints beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday to maintain their perfect season. The Saints were able to dominate Cardinals offense with yet another stifling defensive performance. This win, unlike the two previous wins, also featured some offense. As ludicrous as it sounds, Drew Brees and the Saints offense were a bit out of sync the first two games. For the first time...

Saints rolling with Payton back on the sidelines

For the Saints, it's as if 2012 never happened. After three games a year ago, they were 0-3 without coach Sean Payton and coming off an overtime home loss to Kansas City when they blew an 18-point second-half lead. With Payton back from his one-season bounty ban, New Orleans is 3-0 after a 31-7 rout of Arizona that resembled many of the games in Payton's best seasons. New...

Defense carries New Orleans Saints through three weeks

The Saints have started 3-0 this season, but what does that really mean? Are they a legitimate Super Bowl contender? Are they just good enough to beat a few teams? Or are they just flat out lucky? Resurgent defense Under first-year coordinator Rob Ryan, there has been a truly remarkable turnaround in the defense, recently […]The post Defense carries New Orleans Saints through three...

Saints vs Dolphins: Perfection at stake

The Saints are now 3-0 for the first time since their Super Bowl run in 2009, and this past Sunday's victory against the Cardinals definitely feels better for the Black and Gold because it was such a decisive win, 31-7, compared to the narrow wins the Saints ground out in Weeks 1 and 2. Statistics show 75 percent of the teams that start 3-0 make the playoffs, but head coach...

Payton says no truth to Ingram trade rumors

We’ve seen it time and time again, trade rumors start about a player and then coach denies it as hard as possible. That’s currently happening right now with the New Orleans Saints, head coach Sean Payton and running back Mark Ingram. Last night, Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reported that Ingram could be one of the next big name draft picks traded. Payton denied all that by...

Saints vs Cardinals: 3 and “0″ That Was Fun!

You know how it is when you’re in a new relationship and you feel a certain way about the other person, but you’re just not sure when it’s safe to say it? Maybe you’re just blinded by the “newness” of it all. Maybe you need more time to see if what you’re getting from the other person is the “real deal”. Maybe revealing how you feel will freak them out. You...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Cardinals

Quite a strange performance by the offense in this one, which turned in negative yards rushing in the first half before finishing with 104 yards on 24 carries thanks to finding some lanes late. Luckily the passing attack was mostly effective despite Brees being under constant duress. It was clear the only way to move the ball was going to be to spread things out. I will say, the...
