Saints Nation Podcast: Saints Need Healthy LBs and Skype Fail to the Max

The gang is all here for the first training camp edition. Dave is back and wonders if Scott Shanle might be the Saints savior at linebacker. Kevin needs Skype instructions, and Andrew is very close to being in full blow panic over the linebackers. He is so nervous he has already crapped his pants. The boys break down Kenny Vaccaro looking good the first week of camp, Mark Ingram...

Saints Nation: Several Former Saints Still Looking for Jobs

Four players still looking for jobs that played in black and gold last season are out there hoping an NFL will sign them. They are Devery Henderson, Scott Shanle, Elbert Mack and Sedrick Ellis. Shanle and Mack haven't really sniffed much of any interest, and while Mack at 26 was decent enough last year that he may get a look later in the offseason, it's looking more and more...

Saints Nation Podcast: Enjoying the Falcons' Choke Job

Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to join Ralph in congratulating the Atlanta Falcons on blowing the biggest lead in NFC Championship Game history. Is it small and petty? Absolutely but admit it, you loved it too. They then review their favorite Krewe Du Vieux float mocking Roger Goodell. The boys then discuss why a lot of coaches can't manage the clock and what might...

Saints set record: Worst defense in NFL history

There are some things Drew Brees can do nothing about and defense is one of them. Just how bad was the New Orleans Saints defense this season? The last-ranked defense has now allowed more yards in a season than any defense in NFL history. By allowing 287 yards in the first half against the Carolina Panthers in Week 17, they passed the 1981 Baltimore Colts. Only twice this season...

Saints say NFL bounty probe took a toll on season

History will show that in the wake of the NFL's bounty investigation of the New Orleans Saints, the club missed the playoffs for the first time in four years. Saints players and coaches have said throughout the season they wouldn't allow the probe and resulting suspensions to become an excuse for failure. At the same time, few at Saints headquarters completely discount...

Saints scratch LB Shanle vs. Falcons

The New Orleans Saints have scratched veteran linebacker Scott Shanle for Sunday's game against the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons. The decision on Shanle was the only one by either team affecting a healthy regular. The Saints already had ruled out running back Darren Sproles with a broken left hand, right tackle Zach Strief with a left groin injury, defensive end Junior Galette with...

Scott Shanle says Donte Whitner “needs to shut his mouth”

Getty Images San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner recently criticized the New Orleans Saints by claiming they needed a bounty system in order to be motivated to play hard. “If you have the right type of guys in that (defensive) room, you don’t have to set bounties or pay money for guys to play physical and play hard,” said Whitner. Saints linebacker Scott Shanle took...

Saints’ Shanle blasts Donte Whitner, 49ers on Twitter

They may hail from different divisions and their paths don't cross very often, but the Saints and 49ers are quickly becoming the NFL's hottest rivalry. The two have traded barbs since their NFC Divisional Round tilt, and the verbal battle continued to drag on this week. It started (again) on Monday, when San Fran safety Donte Whitner, who famously -- and legally -- knocked...

Scott Shanle tells Donte Whitner to shut his mouth

Good old twitter. It seems that Saints linebacker Scott Shanle (Don’t worry I had to google his name as well) had a few choice words for 49ers safety Donte Whitner. It seems that Shanle read an article where Whitner said that ‘good defenses don’t need bounties.’ It looks like Shanle didn’t take to kindly to that. I’m guessing Shanle still can’t get over the fact that...

Scott Shanle blasts Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford had nowhere to hide with the Saints linebacker coming his way. But Stafford found Kevin Smith open for a first down on a pass play. Nice way to turn a third-and-long into something positive.
