The Saints are starting to lean defense

When you think of the Saints in the Sean Payton era, you think of Drew Brees, an explosive passing offense, points and yards. In fact, while the team won a Super Bowl in 2009 behind it’s high powered offense, it was the 2011 unit that broke the NFL record for the most yards from scrimmage in a season ever. You read that correctly, more than the “greatest show on turf”. The...

Twitter Tuesday: What would Drew Brees look like at WrestleMania?

The answer is this: .@WrestleMania is 2 days away! “What’cha gonna do brother, when Breesmania runs wild on you?!” @DrewBrees pic.twitter.com/fpgpmWkEPW — New Orleans Saints (@Saints) April 4, 2014   Thank you internet, thank you. In honor of the raw athleticism evident in that picture, I give you ‘that one time Drew Brees dunked the goal-posts’: “@Lark_NessMonsta...

Top 5+: New Orleans Saints wide receiver prospects

It’s no secret that the New Orleans Saints have had one of history’s most prolific offenses with Drew Brees at the helm and Sean Payton calling plays. However, last year it was their defense that was the strength of the franchise. In both games against Seattle (which were – in my opinion – the two worst games to watch as a Saints fan), one of the major reasons the Saints...

NFL to soon embrace allowing tablets on sidelines?

I laugh nowadays when I see quarterbacks and position coaches analyzing plays on the sideline by staring at frozen print-outs from a nearby computer than I can only assume looks like this: It’s 2014, man. Paper playbooks have become a thing of the past, moving almost entirely to tablets. So why shouldn’t teams be allowed to use technology on the sidelines? “NFL players and...

Numbers don’t lie: Drew Brees is one of the all-time greats

Don’t look now, but Drew Brees is fifth all-time in career passing yardage. His 51,081 yards leave him 294 yards shy of fourth place behind Denver Broncos legend John Elway. Brees figures to eclipse the current Broncos General Manager in the third quarter of Opening Weekend 2014 (or at least by the end of the first quarter in Week 2). Number three Dan Marino is a little further...

Power Rankings: Where’s Drew Brees among faces of the franchise in the NFL?

When people think about an NFL team, usually one person immediately jumps to mind. It’s the player, coach or owner who is most immediately identifiable with the club. It’s the person TV networks use in game promos, the team puts on the cover of the media guide and fans blame when things go awry. It’s the face of the franchise. And every team has one, for better or worse. Some...

New Orleans Saints: State of the quarterback position

Another year, another prolific passing year for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Drew Brees threw for over 5,000 yards for the 3rd consecutive season, the first ever quarterback to accomplish this feat. Along with that he added 39 touchdowns and only 12 interceptions, one of his lowest totals since joining the Saints. Though the overall year was great for Brees, he did...

Saints should be ready to replace Drew Brees

Drafting a ready-to-use QB remains a crapshoot in the NFL. Drafting in the first round still does not, and will never, guarantee success. For every Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson, there is a JaMarcus Russell, Matt Leinart and Rex Grossman. For teams like the New Orleans Saints, the best strategy should be to select a first-or-second-round quarterback within the next year or two. Wait...
