Is the Saints offensive line really better than you think?

If you’re looking for silver linings about the New Orleans Saints’ disappointing start to the 2015 season, you may be in luck. Yesterday the team gave up 39 points to the Philadelphia Eagles and now they’re heading into a short-week matchup with the division leading Atlanta Falcons, who have one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses. However, there’s at least one thing they’re...

Time For The Saints To Say Goodbye To Rob Ryan

After a dismal start to the 2015 season,(1-4) the Saints need to focus on the future. The Saints have drafted well and have a lot of talented youth, that just takes time to mold together. Sean Payton is a solid coach, and with another strong draft class in 2016, he should get the program turned around. It may be time to say good bye to Rob Ryan, after 3 years and little improvement...

Three brutal tweets about the New Orleans Saints’ terrible defense

Football is a complicated game with a lot of moving parts but one thing I have always found to be true is that defense wins championships. If that’s the case fans of the New Orleans Saints are not going to have a great time this season. Yesterday the Saints gave up 39 points in a losing effort to the Philadelphia Eagles that included some truly embarrassing moments on defense....

Willie Snead proves value for Saints despite blowout loss to Eagles

The New Orleans Saints are fresh off of a disappointing loss against the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday afternoon and are searching for any bright spot that they can find. Willie Snead is one bright spot for the Saints this week and proved a lot of value for them moving forward. Snead ended up catching six passes for 141 yards on the afternoon, but wasn’t able to get into the end...

Saints burn to the ground in second half in 39-17 loss at Philadelphia

The Saints came up with 2 interceptions in their own end zone (yes really!!) and two turnovers on downs to nurse a flimsy 7-0 lead, before going down 10-7 at halftime. They would then put a comprehensive drive together to make the score 10-10 in the 3rd quarter. It was a competitive game, one right there for the taking. Then, complete implosion. The offensive line in particular was...

Five things to look for in Saints at Eagles

The Saints are 1-3 as they travel to Philly today to face the Eagles. Can you imagine a win? That would be the Saints at 2-3 with a chance to get back to .500 facing the hated Falcons at home on Thursday night. How much fun would that be? Before we can imagine something that fun on the heels of starting 0-3, though, a very tough but not impossible win in Philadelphia will need to...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Eagles – Week 5

Another week another win. Wait? Am I talking about next week? I probably am. Having said that I expect a total blowout. Luckily there is Andrew to reverse jinx this for the Saints. You’ll see his prediction at the end of the post. Last week Patrick had a pick correct though I think his predictions are more like “attainable” then “bold”. The fact that he is still not often...

Saints' top draft choice Peat ready for likely first start

METAIRIE, La. (AP) New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton says the club is ''looking at'' playing first-round draft choice Andrus Peat at left tackle on Sunday in Philadelphia. Terron Armstead normally starts at that spot, but he has not practiced this week after playing through a knee injury in last Sunday night's victory over Dallas. Peat was drafted 13th overall out of Stanford...

Saints rookie LB Kikaha riding wave of early success

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints rookie linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha's inexperience may have been most obvious after his third sack of the season, when he tried to pay homage to his upbringing in Hawaii with a celebration meant to look like a surfer catching a wave. Many fans didn't get it, and Kikaha understood why when he saw the replay. ''That was trash,'' Kikaha said. ''I've got to practice...

New Orleans Saints First Quarter-Season Report: Part 1: The Defense

At first glance, a 1-3 record doesn't exactly scream success for an NFL franchise. And taking into consideration the volume of turnover on this roster in the offseason, it would be a pretty safe bet to say that for the New Orleans Saints, the level of expectations was much higher than to be 1-3 at this juncture of this young 2015 season.In this first installment of a two-part series...

Well Saints fans, there is finally some good news. Following Sunday night’s dramatic 26-20 second play of overtime win at home against the Dallas Cowboys, the 2015 season has finally commenced—assuming you subscribe to the idea a season doesn’t really start until your team wins a game (not saying I do).

Eagles and Saints are weirdly similar teams heading into Week 5…

I was perusing the Saints website here on the Bloguin network known as The Saints Nation, which is written by an old colleague of mine named Andrew Juge. Andrew is a cool dude. He tells it like it is. Always has. But the funny thing is, as he described his Saints’ performance so far in 2015, it reminded me a lot about us. Make no mistake, both teams are 1-3 coming into this game...

The Saints traded Graham to the Seahawks back in March after signing him to a four-year extension the year prior, leaving many fans and analysts alike questioning why they would part ways with quarterback Drew Brees’ favorite...

Drew Brees contract restructure places Saints in unenviable position

The New Orleans Saints already placed themselves behind the proverbial eight-ball when they released Junior Galette this past summer. Less than 10 months after signing the pass rusher to a four-year, $41.5 million extension, the Saints were left eating nearly $17 million of dead money on that deal.While the Galette situation was brought about due to an off-field situation, the Saints...
