This week I'm going to be talking about the elephant in the room, the defense. What does one say to friends/co-workers when their team's defense is this bad. What do you say? It becomes kinda comical after a certain point when your defense allows that kind of yardage and point gain in a single game, let alone a single season. They played well at times, for example in the Tampa Bay game when they had a couple goal-line 4th down stops. Aside from those times, they played horribly. One can list reasons why they played so badly and that person may be right, but in the end of the day it has to stop.

Famous late New Orleans radio talk show personality Buddy Diliberto used to always say something to my buddy Ralph Malbrough that always resonated with me: "never listen to what they say, watch what they do" in reference to the Saints' front office. Watching their moves, the theory goes, would tell you everything you ever need to know about their thought process, while...
Last week I wrote about the top playmakers in Saints history excluding quarterbacks. This week I figured I would write about the top 5 quarterbacks in Saints history. The Saints aren’t known, typically, for their quarterbacks. So some of these aren’t great per say, but nonetheless, here they are starting at 5.
5. Billy Kilmer: Kilmer played only 4 seasons with...

A total of eight head coaches were fired and the New Orleans Saints had a coaching change as Sean Payton, who was suspended for the entire 2012 NFL season, was reinstated.Despite the lockout, the 2011 off-season also saw NFL eight teams making head coaching...
