Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to preview the Saints preseason opener against Arizona. Before they talk football Ralph and Andrew make fun of the Falcons and explain why Atlanta not letting the Saints use their logo on the Steve Gleason statue is fine because it just gives Saints fans a reason to hate the birds more. They also discuss Willie Roaf going into the Hall, why Devery Henderson deserves more love, and why the injuries in the secondary might be a good thing. Andrew also tries to guess who the kicker will be and who will get fans excited in August but be forgotten by September.

Grubbs hungry to fit in on elite Saints offense

Ben Grubbs says that when he ventured into free agency, New Orleans seemed like the right fit personally and professionally. Grubbs grew up in Alabama and played at Auburn, and when All-Pro left guard Carl Nicks left New Orleans during same offseason in which Grubbs became a free agent, the opportunity to return to the South and join a record-setting offense presented itself. Grubbs...

Roaf's road to HOF paved by 13 years of honors

Willie Roaf might have missed out on a whopping 11 Pro Bowls had he been 2 inches taller. Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs, Roaf, who loves basketball and says he can still dunk at age 42, stopped growing when he was 6-foot-5. Roaf says if he had been 6-7, he probably would have kept playing basketball in college, but instead took one of only two scholarship...

New Orleans Saints Will Choke in 2012

Will the Saints be able to handle the whip lash that lingers from the 2011 season and continues to overshadow the 2012 football season, even before it has begun?

Brees backs up comments on player's trust issues with Goodell

Well-respected Saints quarterback Drew Brees told NFL Network on Wednesday that he was representing the league's consensus opinion earlier this week when he said nobody trusts NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Saints Nation: Jabari Greer Potentially Out Till Opener

Another Saints season, another player hernia surgery. That seems to be par for the course with the Saints, so all is right with the world. This time it's Jabari Greer going under the knife after we were first misled to not worry due to the fact that he was "day to day" with a "minor groin injury". From now on, anytime you hear "groin" and "Saints...

Saints focused on mastering Spagnuolo's scheme

With most of the roster set, Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt decided to move practices to the mornings, in part to make sure the team is getting in full sessions. It's back to more of the normal training camp routine after it made more sense to have afternoon practices last year with so much turnover following the end of the lockout and quick start to camp. "This...

Linemen lead charge into Canton

The linemen led the way as they always do, accepting their inductions into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with an abundance of humility.
