The Saints Nation:
New Orleans Saints
Kansas City Chiefs
Gameday is here and it's another chance for the Saints to get this bitter winless season taste out of mouths, pronto. The Chiefs come to the Superdome as the lone team that's given up as many points as the Saints through two games. They've played some bad football so far, which makes them the perfect candidate to face a team so desperate to get back on track. I'm sure they are thinking the same thing about the Saints. Below are five things I'll be looking for in this game.1. Can the Saints Generate Any Kind of Pass Rush?
The company line in week 2 was that RGIII was great preparation for Cam Newton. We all know how that turned out. Now they are feeding us the line that it'll be nice to face a traditional offense where they don't have to worry about the quarterback's escapability. Sorry, I'm not drinking that Kool-Aid. The defense just isn't playing well, period. It doesn't matter who they face, they just need to execute. It's not li...

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has seven receptions for 120 yards through two weeks of action. While those numbers would be respectable for your typical NFL receiver, they’re not quite up to Colston’s standards.
Interim coach Aaron Kromer suggested that a foot ailment that landed Colston on the Weeks One and Three injury reports has been adversely affecting his play....
According to Gary Estwick the SunHerald.com, New Orleans Saints undrafted rookie free agent Travaris Cadet spent last week learning the wide receiver position, to help himself get on the field, since as a running back he’s currently buried on the depth chart.
If the Saints can install some specific packages for Cadet, he’ll just be another weapon that opposing defenses will have...
I’m good at the ring toss Juan…
Pierre Thomas came up big last week with 143 total yards against the Panthers and gets the lowly Chiefs defense this week as well. Looks like Pierre Thomas came up big at Six Flags too. He either tossed the softball in milkcan or shot the basketball in the oval hoop to get the moster stuffed animal.

Will Smith will play Sunday for the New Orleans Saints, but his original four-game "bounty" suspension, which since has been sent back to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, continues to hover over him.
The defensive end hopes that will change soon. Smith met with NFL officials Tuesday and said he trusts Goodell to act judiciously in reviewing the penalties levied on the...

Saints right tackle Zach Strief had an extremely rough day against Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston. Houston had three sacks, including a safety in the fourth quarter while the Saints' offense was imploding. Afterward, Strief admirably fell on the sword.
"I've never felt more individually responsible for the destruction of an offense before," Strief said. "...
Coaching, contrary to popular belief, is important. Don’t believe me? Check the Saints 0-2 record to start 2012. No Sean Payton = No wins. It’s been that simple. Romeo Crennel, as solid of a coach as he may be, is also off to a 0-2 start which has left some scratching their heads. They haven’t had the toughest of starts schedule wise yet they come into Week 3 winless heading...
Everybody knew that Peyton Manning is great, but perhaps it took us witnessing the team without him last year to realize just how valuable he is. We are getting the same thing this year with the other Payton (with an “a”), Sean, the coach of the Saints.
In a season already filled with surprises, the biggest shocker in Week 3 is the same thing from the opener, how disappointing...
Even though he was the player the NFL said the New Orleans Saints targeted during the so-called bounty scandal, retired quarterback Brett Favre doesnt believe there was a bounty put on his head, calling the allegations, hearsay, reports ESPN.com.
In all honesty, Im pretty indifferent. But Id have to say when they were allowed to play, I thought that was the right move...
(Eds: Updates throughout. With AP Photos.) By BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer Drew Brees readily acknowledges he is an eternal optimist - and won't buy into the notion that an 0-3 record is proof the Saints are doomed without suspended coach Sean Payton.
When he reviewed video on Monday of New Orleans' collapse in a 27-24 overtime loss to Kansas City a day earlier, he took...
Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 3
Week 3 PSW game of the week, Philadelphia at Arizona. The Cardinals are coming off a big win last week against the Patriots while the Eagles own the record for starting a season with 2 one point wins. This will change Sunday, as the Eagles will feast on the fact that Arizona cannot run the ball. A big game can be expected from someone unlikely...
