NFL Draft: The dependency of an NFL quarterback

It’s amazing to believe that the general managers of the National Football League make their careers by predicting the future when drafting young talent. Hundreds of players, from the biggest of universities, to the smallest. It’s a science that many have failed and few have conquered. To help make sense of the elaborate formula of building a winning roster, I’ve created rule...

Breaking down Sean Payton’s influence on the New Orleans Saints’ offense

Sean Payton’s offensive system has been in place in New Orleans since 2006 when he arrived with Drew Brees. Since then, he has gone 73-39 in the regular season, 6-4 in the playoffs, and he has a Super Bowl under his belt. It’s well-established by now that Payton calls his own plays, rather than allowing Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. to run the offense. He only has...

Saints expected to draft a wide receiver

The New Orleans Saints have one of the best quarterbacks in the league thanks to Drew Brees, but they could be looking to improve his chances of success by adding more weapons around him during the 2014 NFL Draft. According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, the Saints are expected to select at least one receiver during the draft. The Saints will need to begin looking for Marques Colston’s...

KSK Kontent Klearinghouse — Drew Brees Can Fly (He Can’t Fly)

Breesus takes flight, provided he has ankle supports while doing explosive push-ups. More or less the same thing. Hopefully this comfort with supports means Brees will warm up the idea of being in a kung-fu movie once day. Even better: a kung-fu version of Noah.– Sidney Rice visited the Jets then immediately re-signed with the Seahawks. Rex must have picked the wrong kind of stripper...

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...

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...

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...
