For Meachem: New Orleans feels like "home"

The first practice of Robert Meachem's second stint with the Saints ended, he pulled off his No. 17 jersey and shoulder pads, then started running extra pass routes for Drew Brees on a mostly empty field. Those moments on Wednesday afternoon brought back fond memories of a time when he was thought of as something far better than a free-agent flame-out. ''Me and Drew...

Saints right tackle Zach Strief recalls sadness consuming him when he saw the Superdome go dark during the Super Bowl. Strief had settled permanently in New Orleans since being drafted by the Saints in 2006 - less than a year after Hurricane Katrina - and he understood the central role the rebuilt stadium had played in the city's regrowth.

Chick Chow: Roasted Falcon, A Little Gamey But Good For The Soul

Ever go to a fancy-schmancy restaurant but vacillate on what to order? Seems like Sean Payton had the same dilemma recently, but in the end settled on the perfect meal, Roasted Falcon.

Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints: The Rivalry By the Numbers

Say what you want about the rest of the country, but there is no better way to start off the NFL season in the deep south than by pitting the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints against each other in Week One.

Blogging with the Enemy: Q&A with Grits Blitz
