The Saints are winning games right now but are there enough games left to get back into the NFC playoff picture.  The teams that are ahead of them include Green Bay, Detroit, Minnesota, Seattle and Arizona.  I don't think they have enough time. I'm sitting at 84-49 heading into the weekend.  I need to have a huge run to get over .750 for the season. NY Giants @ Cincinnati - The Giants are coming off a tough home loss last week to the Steelers.  I think last weeks events caught up to the Giants.  I think their routine during the week with practice and meetings was thrown off and it ended up costing them in the game.  The fact that they were able to play as well as they did is a testimony to how mentally tough they are.  Giants fans shouldn't take anything away from this loss, they'll be fine. The Bengals have not matured as much as people thought in the second year of Dalton/Green era.  Cincinnati hasn't beaten a good team an...

Sean Payton can hold the Saints hostage

In nullifying Sean Payton's contract, Roger Goodell may have actually been rewarding Payton while simultaneously punishing the New Orleans Saints in a big way. There's been a lot of talk about Payton moving to the Cowboys at the conclusion of his suspension, and while I'm not sure he'll leave New Orleans, the whole situation does give him a great deal of leverage...

Jonathan Vilma ready to get off “pitch count”

New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has made it clear that he’s ready to get off the “pitch count” that his coaches have put him on, so he can make a bigger impact by being on the field more. “I told him he needs to take that pitch count off me, ASAP,” Vilma told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. “I’m ready to go. I’m always ready to go.” Vilma was on the field...

Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys? Who cares!

Sean Payton: Heir to the Cowboys Throne? “Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys.” No one would be surprised if that was the leading headline in the coming NFL off-season. Since the NFL voided Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints, speculation about Jerry Jones setting his sights on the former Cowboys assistant has run rampant. And why not? We have seen it before. Jerry...

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints: Week 10 NFL Pick

Atlanta Falcons (8-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-5) The Falcons are an undefeated 8-0, but they have not played a tough schedule (it doesn’t really get harder) and they’ve won 5 of their 8 games by a touchdown or less, including 4 at home. Their +77 points differential is just 6th in the NFL. Typically, records in touchdown games even out over time. Teams that win a game by a touchdown...

JDub's Fantasy Football Week 10 Predictions -- Quarterback

Matt Ryan is one of the best quarterbacks in the league this season. He is going up against the New Orleans Saints defense, who are the worst in the league. They have allowed 450 yards of offense each game this season, which is a NFL record.  It will be a fun game with Matt Ryan and Drew Brees going head-to-head in what is, in my opinion, the game of the week. Look for Matt Ryan...
