Five things to look for in Saints at Bears

This has to be one of the least exciting Monday night football games in Saints history. That seems insane to say when the Saints are still in the thick of the playoff picture but it’s the reality of where we stand given the team’s performance for the better part of a month and a half. When looking at these teams it’s crazy to think about how similar they are. Besides the 5...

Self-Scouting: Where the New Orleans Saints Secondary Ranks in the NFL

My evaluation of the New Orleans Saints’ starters and how they rank in the NFL continues with the secondary.  I’m looking at how the Saints’ four defensive backs who have seen the most action in the 2014 season (Rafael Bush, Kenny Vaccaro, Keenan Lewis, and Corey White) place amongst their peers in a few position-specific statistical categories.  Let’s start with the safety...

Saints' shake up brings new role for Vaccaro

METAIRIE, La. (AP) New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro expects to look back on this week as a turning point in his career. For now, though, he's adjusting to an apparent demotion and a dose of humility. With the Saints still in the playoff picture but coming off a stunning 41-10 loss to Carolina, Vaccaro said Thursday that he'd been called into a meeting with coach Sean Payton...

Saints' Kenny Vaccaro has new haircut, new attitude

Sean Payton took drastic measures this week to send a message to the Saints locker room that they are not getting the job done and a big reason why is attitude. Payton didn't just talk; he also made several moves: wide receiver Joe Morgan is history, safety Kenny Vaccaro is benched and kicker Shayne Graham is still wearing black and gold by the skin of his teeth.   Thursday, there...

Is Payton's Shakeup in New Orleans Too Late?

Much has been said and written in the four days since the Saints lost to Carolina, 41-10, in the Superdome. And one of the most notable, during his post game presser, was Head Coach Sean Payton's statement saying "Changes will be made" this week. And he wasted little time in getting that ball rolling. First came the announcement on Tuesday that long-embattled Saints WR Joe Morgan...

Report: Saints benching former first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro

  The New Orleans Saints have underachieved all year and now, for head coach Sean Payton, the time has came for him to make a change in the back end of his defense to send a message. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Saints will be benching former first round-pick Kenny Vaccaro, relegating him to the bench and elevating former Viking Jamarca Sanford to a more prominent role...

Kenny Vaccaro: 2014′s enigma

I can’t count how many times I have seen fans this year (myself included at times) wonder aloud (or on twitter) what exactly is wrong with our star rookie from last year. How has Kenny Vaccaro gone from the hard hitting dynamo we drafted last year whose instinctive play-making and tenacity made him an instant fan favorite, to Roman Harper with slightly better coverage skills and...

Steve Smith gets into it with Kenny Vaccaro, delivers money quote after win (vids)

In a development that should surprise no one, Steve Smith mixed it up with an opponent during a game and then delivered a fantastic quote about the dust-up following it. The fiery Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, no stranger to confrontations, shoving matches and epically brilliant trash talk, delivered a trifecta of quintessential Smithian antics during...Read More The post Steve...

Kenny Vaccaro makes New Orleans Saints defense extra scary

Kenny Vaccaro is a monster. He’s the football version of Pierre The Pelican, before the poor bird had beak surgery right around the NBA All-Star break. That Pierre was fierce-looking. He ate people! OK, he didn’t actually; thank heavens! But the point remains, Pierre pre-surgery was scary. Vaccaro proved to be that to opposing offensive players last season. In 14 games in 2013...
