New Orleans Saints: Why to watch Vinnie Sunseri

Last season, the New Orleans Saints’ rookie class was one of the best since 2006 producing starters Kenny Vaccaro, Terron Armstead, Kenny Stills, and John Jenkins. This is season, with the exception of Brandin Cooks and possibly Stanley Jean-Baptiste, the rookie class won’t feature as many bona fide starters. However, this doesn’t mean that an impact can’t be made by one...

Jonathan Goodwin according to Pro Football Focus

I’ve watched the 49ers play enough the past couple years that I truly do feel great about the Jonathan Goodwin pickup. Even at 35 years old I believe he is a significant upgrade over Brian de la Puente last year and Tim Lelito this year. Durability is one of his obvious strengths, but how has his play on the field been? I personally have been impressed with his performance in the...

Why, statistically, the New Orleans Saints are set up for success in 2014

Last week Bill Barnwell wrote a fascinating column for Grantland on different statistical categories which impact winning in the NFL. I would recommend reading it here. As a wannabe statistical nerd, I too, try to evaluate wins and losses by more than just the film, though as a former high school coach I recognize that of course the film is crucial as well. If nothing else, a statistical...

White is out to show what he can do against competition on the Saints

After the Saints selected him in the fifth round of the 2012 draft, cornerback Corey White chose jersey No. 24 because that was the number worn by the two NFL players whom he considered the best at his position: Darrelle Revis and Champ Bailey. Little could he imagine that 12-time Pro Bowler Bailey would end up being his teammate. And little did he know he’d spark a mini-controversy...

Khiry Robinson: Breakout Candidate For 2014

In 2013 when the New Orleans Saints backfield was thought of, names like Sproles, Ingram, and Thomas came to mind. However, when the 2014 Saints take the field, Robinson will be a household name. Khiry Robinson is a 6'0 220 pound running back who started his college football career in 2008 at Mesabi Range Community and Technical College in Virginia, Minnesota. Robinson shined...

Position Breakdown: New Orleans Saints’ offensive line could be diamond in the rough

The final offensive position of note on my positional breakdown of the Saints roster is the offensive line. Currently rostered offensive tackles: Terron Armstead, Zach Strief, Bryce Harris, Tavon Rooks, Marcel Jones, Thomas Welch, Jason Weaver, Manase Foketi and Ty Nsekhe. Currently rostered interior offensive linemen: Jahri Evans, Ben Grubbs, Tim Lelito, Jonathan Goodwin, Matt Armstrong...

Scouting report for Saints opponents weeks 12-14

After the Bengals the Saints finally get to exhale and play some of the softer parts of their schedule…right? Well, yes and no; the latter portion of the Saints schedule is on paper not as strong as the earlier portions, especially with the lack of any teams on the level of the Niners left to play. However, there are three division game remaining and three potentially challenging...

Vernon Davis Thinks Jimmy Graham Deserves to be Paid

Either Vernon Davis really is a huge Jimmy Graham fan, or he’s lobbying for Graham in an effort to help his own cause. Davis has spoken out and said that Graham deserves a new deal from the Saints. Even more interesting is that Davis believes that Graham should get a WR type contract. “He believes that he deserves more, and I believe that he deserves more,” Davis told ESPN...

Photo: Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze Spent Time With Saints’ Sean Payton, Learning About Offense

There might not be a better offensive mind in football than Sean Payton, the head coach/often play caller of the New Orleans Saints. In 2013, New Orleans finished the regular season ranked No. 4 in total offense. In 2011, the Saints ended the year ranked No. 1 in the same category. (Payton was suspended for the 2012 season.)  In 2013, Ole Miss ranked No. 22 in the country in total...

Vernon Davis Believes Jimmy Graham Deserves More Money

New Orleans Saints’ tight end Jimmy Graham has a grievance hearing scheduled for June 17 and 18 to have a third-party arbitrator hear arguments to to determine if Graham should be considered as a wide receiver instead of a tight end. Vernon Davis of the San Francisco 49ers believes Graham is worth more than just tight end money. #49ers TE Davis believes #Saints Graham deserves...

Exciting Players to Watch for in 2014

Today I’m going to be discussing what I’m most excited to see coming into the 2014 season. I will be discussing one or two things on each side of the ball. When it comes to special teams, It won’t necessarily be me being “excited” for it due to the kickoff rules as they stand, but more curiosity; but we’ll get to that. First things first; In New Orleans, it all starts...

The 2014 Offensive Rookie Of The Year Will Be_______

Brandin Cooks.The New Orleans Saints moved up seven spots from 27 to 20 in order to draft the 5'10 4.33 speedster Cooks out of Oregon State. Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees is one of the top 3 quarterbacks in the league, almost always passing for over 5,000 yards. Adding a receiver like Cooks to the mix only makes that even more likely in 2014.Brandin Cooks...
