Grade Day: New Orleans Saints are a failure

The entire season was hanging on a thread. Could Sean Payton rally the troops as he’s done so often in his career and lead the Saints to an improbable win on the road? No. Week 7 ended as a 24-23 loss at the hands of the Lions, and the most disturbing part is the way the Saints managed to lose this time. The defense actually played relatively well, holding Matthew Stafford and...

Sean Payton to reporter: “Be quiet”

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was quite testy during his press conference after Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. Next question. Next smart question.” And: “Be quiet, I’m answering the question. Be quiet. You asked a question, I’m answering it. Can you let me finish?

Video: Sean Payton tells reporter to ‘be quiet’ after being interrupted during press conference

Do not attempt to interrupt New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton when he's in the middle of speaking. One particular reporter learned the hard way in the news conference that followed Sunday's game—which the (2-4) Saints lost to the Lions, 24-23. Things got a bit chippy in the presser after the game. Payton was first asked a question that he didn't like. So he...

WATCH: Sean Payton has tense exchange with reporter

The New Orleans Saints fell to 2-4 this afternoon after losing to the Detroit Lions. Saints head coach Sean Payton was not happy and actually lost his temper with a few members of the media.

Game Recap: New Orleans Saints can start preparing for 2015

It happened again. Not only did the Saints play well enough to win their Week 7 matchup against the Lions, they had them dead to rights.

The silent storm had been mostly just silent...

Saints suffer inexplicable loss 24-23 to Lions

The Saints are now 2-4, somehow, and all we can chalk this up to is some sort of road voodoo. The Saints were up 23-10 and in complete control of this game until a comedy of errors and referee contribution helped the Lions pull off the improbable comeback. This loss hurts worse than the Falcons game and Browns game and it will leave a mark both literally and figuratively. Multiple...

NFL week 7 predictions

With 11 of the 15 home teams winning in week 5 and just 4 of the 15 winning in week 6, the NFL has reached that point in the season where deciphering the good teams and the bad ones is significantly easier–the problem comes when 2 good teams and 2 bad ones play one another. Week 7 looks relatively upset free, with most of the home teams doing the winning. Thursday, October 16th...

Saints reporter flashes Pulitzer after Jahri Evans rips him

As a Saints fan, it’s been a bit of a tumultuous season.  A 2-3 record heading into the bye week is a disappointment heading into the bye week for a team that very clearly had Super Bowl aspirations.  The losses have been heartbreaking (two on the last play and one SNF blowout in Dallas) and the wins haven’t been all that impressive.  That includes an overtime home victory...
