The Saints are back on track this season standing at 4-0.  The Bears are looking solid under their new coach, but they are in a tough division. After a rough Week 3 we were able to get back on track with a 12-3 week 4 performance.  That puts us at 48-15 for the season, better than all of the ESPN Experts. Week 5 is gives us some more tough match-ups.  Let's stay above .500 this week. Lions @ Packers - This is a great division match-up the in the NFC North.  The Lions are playing well, but still have weaknesses at WR and DB.  The Packers get their rookie RB this week to help the offense.  I like the Packers at home. Panthers @ Cardinals - The Panthers are coming off an early bye after demolishing the Giants.  Can the defense hold-up and can Cam get things rolling on offense?  The Cardinals needed some help to win last week and need to get the running game going to help Palmer and the offense.  I'll go with Arizona at home. Saints @ Bears - This is going t...

Saints Nation: Saints Pick Up Valuable Win on the Road 26-18 at Bears, Still Unbeaten at 5-0

After a fantastic first half, maybe the best of the season, the Saints played some ugly and mostly conservative football to hang on 26-18 (led 20-7 at halftime). But a win is a win, particularly on the road with a field like that. Soldier Field was in horrific condition and footing was very difficult, affecting the offense negatively. Drew Brees played very smart and efficiently...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Bears

The offense didn't have one of their best performances by any means, but got the job done. The offensive line continues to be the achilles heel of the entire team, but they had a mediocre game this week which I view as an improvement. The running game was decent early, just good enough to force the Bears to passively pay attention to it. That helped the passing game and protection...

You Interpret: ESPN Refers To Danny Woodhead As “Working Man’s Darren Sproles”

So, ESPN, what are you trying to say here?  Is Darren Sproles not a hard worker?  Does Danny Woodhead work harder than Darren Sproles?  Perhaps there are some racial undertones here as well.  Either way, interesting take on the Chargers running back who is a diminutive dynamo.
