Found September 10, 2013 on The Saints Nation:
Sander Philipse of Bucs Nation stops by to discuss the Bucs loss to the Jets, why Greg Schiano can't instill any discipline in Tampa, and why Josh Freeman has fallen completely apart. He then breaks down what the Bucs need to do to beat the Saints. Kevin, Andrew, and Dave then join in and Kevin demands Ralph pay off a bet. Your ears will suffer and we apologize. Andrew is really excited about John Jenkins but wonders if he can handle the increased workload with Brodrick Bunkley being out. The boys argue about if fans will be upset if Kenny Vaccaro starts getting personal foul penalties on the regular. Rob Ryan is apparently making up defenses on the fly and celebrating at Miss Mae's and the guys are really excited about it. Andrew says Kenny Stills beating single coverage is excellent news for the offense. Kevin wonders if Andy Tanner will be Sean Payton's victory cigar. Dave is ready to break up with his BFF Mark Ingram and Andrew wonders If the Saints do phase out Ingram who gets his carries? The boys then wrap up predicting the Saints-Bucs game with Kevin mixing in wrestling terminology. PS: Donate and the audio quality stays awesome and don't forget to download our Iphone app!

Rob Ryan buys entire New Orleans bar drinks after win

The Saints winning a game with an honest-to-God goal-line stand is enough reason for a parade through New Orleans in itself. But it turns out new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan gave one lucky group of fans even more reason to celebrate their win over the Falcons on Sunday night. According to the NOLA Defender blog, Ryan showed up at the Uptown bar Ms. Mae’s, where he was showered...

Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan celebrated Sunday’s win by buying a round at New Orleans bar

Rob Ryan coaching in New Orleans is perfect on many levels: the hair, the “I don’t give a F” attitude. But the most perfect thing about Ryan coaching in New Orleans is the fact that Ryan is just a regular dude that just so happens to coach football. For example, while other Saints players and coaches celebrated Sunday’s win over the Falcons either privately or in downtown...

New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

The Saints have to be very pleased with their defense holding Atlanta to 17 points. Junior Galette, Cameron Jordan, and David Hawthorne all excelled in their new roles in Rob Ryan’s new 3-4 defense. They probably won’t play that well every week as they just don’t have the talent, but if they can be even average defensively like they were in 2011, they’ll have a chance to...

Saints say Payton's presence a factor in victory

From his bright orange shorts to the smile with which he greeted reporters, Sean Payton looked about as cheerful as a man in a high-pressure job can be on a Monday. It helps when you win on Sunday, which is exactly what the Saints did in what also marked their head coach's first meaningful game since his one-season bounty ban ended last winter. Payton downplays his role in...

Fans tune in to watch Saints' win, Payton's return

No doubt the The Who Dat Nation was all in, desperate, in fact, to welcome coach Sean Payton back to the sidelines after his season-long Bounty Suspension. Sunday's season opener featuring the Saints versus the Atlanta Falcons on Fox scored ratings that rival Super Bowl numbers. The Nielsen Company says Sunday's game averaged a 75 share of the television audience in the...

Saints committed to balance, but seek better runs

Sean Payton's play selection has backed up the coach's offseason pledge to restore more balance between the times the Saints run or pass. Now, as New Orleans prepares to visit Tampa Bay this Sunday, it's up to the offensive line and running backs to give Payton a reason to stick with it. ''It's going to get better,'' running back Pierre Thomas promised...

Report: Saints NT Brodrick Bunkley Likely To Miss “Several Weeks”

Ian Rapoport reports that Saints NT Brodrick Bunkley will be out “several weeks” after he suffered a calf injury during Week 1′s win over the the Falcons. Rapoport adds that the injury isn’t season-ending. The fact that New Orleans has already used their injured reserve designation that allows a player to return later in the season on LB Jonathan Vilma means that they’ll...

Saints receiver Marques Colston making history -- even if no one notices

It's no surprise that Marques Colston set the New Orleans Saints' career receiving record in the 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons and hardly anyone noticed. The only thing the Saints' star receiver has failed to catch during his stellar career is people's attention. Colston's 25-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter was his 533rd catch in eight seasons...

Bucs hope to get ground game going vs. Saints

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face Drew Brees twice a season, so they know it takes more than a sturdy defense to slow down the New Orleans Saints quarterback. A revamped secondary led by cornerback Darrelle Revis figures to be one of the keys to the team's chances for success when the NFC South rivals meet Sunday, however the Bucs also are hoping their sputtering offense can do...

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Falcons

When you give up 17 points to an extremely potent offense, including a game winning goal line stop at the end of the game to seal the victory, it's safe to say this was an overwhelming success. Rob Ryan's first game was a huge hit. The defense gave up some plays, sure, but the overall result was more than we could have asked for. They deserve all the credit for this win,...

NFC South Week 1 Recap: Saints up, Bucs, Falcons down

New Orleans Saints 23 Atlanta Falcons 17Rob Ryan may have just needed a change of scenery as his injury depleted defense held the high powered Falcons to only 17 points.  New Orleans managed to force two fumbles and recover one and also had a key Roman Harper interception in the end zone with the Falcons threatening at 4th and goal from inside the 5-yard line with under a minute...
