Why the New Orleans Saints should trade up in the first round

The New Orleans Saints have had a whirlwind of an offseason. There have been big signings, emotional trades, and heart wrenching cuts. Mickey Loomis has been a wizard navigating the salary cap to put the Saints in position for another Super Bowl run. And with the draft just a month away, he has a chance to really round out this roster. Because of Loomis’ extreme zealousness in...

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...

Champ Bailey: Saints are very close to a championship

New Orleans Saints new cornerback Champ Bailey likes his chances of winning his first Super Bowl ring. “(The Saints) are very close (to a championship),” Bailey said to the team’s website. “You look at, Coach Payton took a year off, came back and they got in the playoffs, and won a game. They’re very close. I think any time you have a guy like Drew Brees calling the shots...

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...

Fisher: Graham’s goalpost dunk in Atlanta inspired rule change

St. Louis Rams coach and NFL competition committee co-chairman Jeff Fisher told reporters Wednesday morning that the game delay caused by one of New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham’s dunks was the reason the goalpost celebration will now draw a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. “The background is when the committee basically defined unsportsmanlike conduct and celebrations...

Saints Sean Payton’s Draft Tendencies

AP Photo/Gerald Herbert Deuce Windham New Orleans Saints Writer As we approach the NFL Draft one question that every Saints fan is asking is, “What Will Payton Do?” (Kudos to anyone who catches the WWJD reference). I think the answer lies not necessarily in the scouting profiles of players in the draft, but in the history of the Saints’ drafts under Sean Payton. There have...

Power Rankings: Where’s Sean Payton rank among the 32 NFL head coaches?

Teams will go to such lengths to land the right head coach. They’ll spend a ton of money. They’ll hire whatever assistants are requested. And they’ll make sure wives and kids find a comfy new home. But it’s also why they expectations are high. Lose a few too many games, even if it’s in season one, and there’s a chance a head coach will be shown the door. In the ultimate...

New Orleans Saints: Sean Payton’s ego has cost Saints

Lack of balance and variety led to Brees being pressured all day against Carolina. It feels like just yesterday the New Orleans Saints were 9-2 and gaining momentum after hard fought wins over the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons. Now the season has taken a nightmarish turn as they have dropped three of their last four going from being in contention for the one seed to having...
