Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
I completed my second trade with Colbey from Cardboard Collections. Colbey contacted me about a few cards from my Want List he could help out with, and our second deal was underway after a few e-mails. I received two relics and a bit of Ginter help when all was said and done.First up, a sweet Darren Sproles relic, complete with a powder blue piece of jersey. Every Chargers' relic should feature powder blue. There should be some sort of federal law stating such a mandate. The card surface is in some sort of weird and totally awesome textured state, which I really dig. It also happens to be numbered 258/299 and prominently features a sick action shot of the former Chargers' tailback. Part of me thinks it has patch-like qualities. Who knows.Next up, a new addition to my small Alex Gordon PC. It's been a while since I've added a card to this particular tertiary collection, but I like Gordon a lot and am always happy to pick up a hit of his. And again, a sweet blue relic....
BEST OF MAXIM
Brees has played three of the NFL's worst defenses so far - Redskins, Panthers, and Chiefs - with two of those matchups at home. Nonetheless, Brees has "just" 904 passing yards, 7 TDs vs. 5 INTs, and a 6.7 YPA. Not awful stats, certainly, but they're a far cry from the Brees we saw in 2011.
I spent a fair amount of time this week trying to figure out which...
CRY ME A RIVER
Clay Matthews says the Saints are like a "wounded dog" coming into Green Bay and that he doesn't feel sorry for them.

Original Story Here!
There are a number of enticing games as we enter week four of the NFL season. Still, the most intriguing game of the week involves a 1-2 team and an 0-3 team.
That game, of course, is Sunday when the New Orleans Saints travel to Green Bay in what could become their last stand for saving their season.
The Saints have become a caricature of all teams stuck at 1-2 or worse. The...
Linebacker David Hawthorne is inactive for the New Orleans Saints for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Hawthorne missed practice all week, and will be replaced by Will Herring.
The Saints are thin at linebacker as backup Jonathan Casillas also is inactive because of a neck injury.
Defensive end Turk McBride, running back Chris Ivory, cornerback Elbert Mack, defensive...
The New Orleans Saints finally saw an offense they recognized.
The result was the same, though - another loss for a team whose tumultuous offseason has spilled over into a winless start.
This time Garrett Hartley missed a field goal in a wild ending at Lambeau Field, where the Saints (0-4) blew a fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Green Bay Packers 28-27 on Sunday.
A street performer covered from head to toe in sparkling paint sits atop a garbage can on Bourbon Street. Above his battered tip bucket is a cardboard sign that reads, "To NFL Roger Goodell."
The "Gold Man" then sends his message for the cameras with a middle-finger salute -- and he says business has never been better.
Not far from New Orleans Saints headquarters...
I've had the same poll up on the left hand side of the blog forever, so it's time for a new one. My previous question was regarding the Saints' new free agents, and which you were most excited about. Curtis Lofton landed 70.6% of the vote, so you the fans clearly picked him as the guy you were most excited about. And sure enough, he's the only that's really lived...
The last quarterback the NFL's lowest-ranked defense should want to face next?
But if the New Orleans Saints are going to rise from the league basement, finding a way to stymie the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player is a must in Sunday's game at Green Bay (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, FOX).
Among the biggest reasons for the Saints' 0-3 start is a defense...
New Orleans Saints (0-3) at Green Bay Packers (1-2)
The Saints and Packers are a combined 1-5 three weeks in the season. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I strangely see no hands. This is a huge, must win game for both teams, and given that we should expect huge performances from both quarterbacks. You know it’s really not sitting well with both of these quarterbacks that...
