In a common touchdown celebration that all football players do, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem flipped the ball into the stands last Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals. Meachem thought about the touchdown and it dawned on him that it really meant a lot to him since this is his second stint with the New Orleans Saints, after having a dismal time with San Diego Chargers. Meachem told The Baton Rouge Advocate, that “I was kind of mad at myself. He also added, “That ball meant a lot to me, but some fan got it.” But the cool thing about this story is that Robert Meachem got the ball back. The fans who had the ball returned it to the Saints’ practice facility and gave it to the Meachem and in return he gave the fans autographed footballs, the Saints confirmed this today. Hopefully, Robert Meachem doesn’t do this on Monday night against the Miami Dolphins because the next group of fans probably won’t give him the ball back. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

The 3-0 Miami Dolphins will travel to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to try to knock off the New Orleans Saints. The Saints look to improve to 4-0 on Monday Night, where they have had a good amount of success. Since the hiring of Sean Payton, the Saints have been 10-2 on Monday Night including 8 straight victories by an average margin of 16 points. Though the Dolphins being 3-0 is surprising...
In case you missed it, I’ve just introduced sabermetrics to fantasy football.
The format is easy enough: I calculate who the highest risk players are for the week, then figure out who the highest reward guys are. Factoring in both risk and reward, an overall value is calculated, with the ideal player being low risk and high reward.
The math factors in carries, fantasy points, matchup...
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said he isn't sure why Saints fans are adamant that the organization "Pay the Man!" when referencing his contract situation.
"You know that comment is funny" Graham said jokingly. "I get paid every two weeks here. I'm not really sure what everybody is talking about."
Of course Graham understands the...
We saw how much having Jahri Evans healthy meant to this team last week as undrafted rookie Tim Lelito started his first game and struggled mightily going up against Darnell Dockett. Evans was active and dressed in that game, mind you, because Tim Lelito is their only backup interior lineman. The Saints also have Bryce Harris and Terron Armstead as reserve linemen, but both are tackles...
Jimmy Graham insists he isn't miffed about his lack of a contract extension, even as his highlight-reel catches and gaudy statistics put him on track to be one of the best tight ends the NFL has seen.
Then again, if Graham were angry, it might not be such a bad thing for the New Orleans Saints.
Graham, who'll seek a third-straight 100-yard receiving game when New Orleans...
Monday night football in the Superdome with two 3-0 teams battling to keep their record perfect. What more could you ask for as a fan? The Saints will host the Dolphins tonight for a chance to start the first quarter of the season with a perfect record. This is, like the first three games, one that the Saints will come in as favorites in. Here's five things I'll be looking...
Miami Dolphins (3-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-0)
The Saints have held all 3 of their opponents this season to 17 or fewer points this season, something they did a total of 3 times last season. Young stars have broken out, especially Cameron Jordan, who is playing like an All-Pro back at his collegiate position of 5-technique defensive end. The offense doesn’t look right yet, but...
The Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints meet on Monday night in a game of two teams who have begun the season 3-0.
Both the Saints and Dolphins entered the season looking for improvement. The Saints stumbled though the 2012 season without head coach Sean Payton while the Dolphins just missed out on the playoffs.
ESPN and WatchESPN will have coverage of this game beginning at 8...
Just across the Mississippi River from the world-famous French Quarter is neighborhood called Algiers, where Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace and Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis became playmates around age 5.
Their friendship went beyond sports. Wallace didn't even play football until Lewis persuaded him to go out for their high school team at O. Perry Walker. A decade later, they...
Monday Night Football will present and undefeated versus undefeated game this week with one of the participants being undefeated not nearly as big a surprise as the other. The Miami Dolphins have shocked a lot of people by starting this season 3-0, the New Orleans Saints being 3-0 can only be a surprise if you picked them to lose to the Atlanta Falcons on opening weekend. I did,...
Heading into the season I would not have expected to be looking forward to this game as much as I am. The Saints were clearly going to be better than in 2012, but undefeated and dominant, particularly on defense, is unexpected. The Dolphins were also going to be better. But so far the fish have stuck right with New England for tops in the AFC East.
Monday Night Football does not...
