Do the New Orleans Saints have the best coaching staff in the NFC South?

On Tuesday we looked at the offensive staffs of the four teams in the NFC South, with the goal of figuring out how the New Orleans Saints stack up with the rest of the division. We found the staffs to be relatively even across the board—which is far from surprising. As important as coaching is, the reality is at the NFL level every coach is pretty solid. Sure, each one has their...

History and Opportunity Led to the Drafting of Andrus Peat

Every team has their weaknesses, but there’s usually one in particular each season that does them in. The challenge for coaching staffs and personnel departments is addressing current needs while making sure other positions don’t go to pot. While you always want to fill immediate needs, the latter is just as important as the former. An area of strength can soon turn into an area...

If you're good at something, there's no reason to not let everyone know about it. Thomas Morstead of the New Orleans Saints proved that point with this ridiculous punt below. To answer Morstead's question on his official Instagram account, I have no idea how far away that light pole is, but that was more than a little impressive.

Post Draft Analysis: Linebackers

I saved the Linebackers for last because it is in my opinion without question the group that both needed, and got, the most attention in the offseason.  I have actually found it a little disturbing how little attention the Saints horrendous linebacker position has gotten over the last few seasons. A solid group of linebackers is every bit as important to a defense as a QB is to...

WATCH: New Orleans Saints Punter Thomas Morestead Nails Field Lights With Ridiculous Punt

Punters are often the overlooked football player. People don't expect to see them do anything but kick the ball really, really far when they are called upon to actually get on the field and above all else never get a kick blocked (because it will be his fault if it is). However, what they don't realize is that these guys are athletes too and they are capable of doing big things.For...

The Saints Look to Shrink the Field in 2015

The Saints had nine picks heading into the draft and surprised everyone by using all nine. Payton stated that the picks acquired during the off-season would be used to shore up the defense.

Drew Brees: Saying I'd play until 45 may have been 'overzealous'

After a rough 2014 season, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is rethinking a bold statement he made a year ago. Before the season began, Brees was excited about the possibility of playing into his mid-40s—a statement he now admits was a bit “overzealous.” Brees called his playing until he's 45 overzealous, but still kicked around the idea. — Larry Holder (@LarryHolder...
