Have the New Orleans Saints given up?

It appears that the New Orleans Saints cannot wait for 2016 to arrive, and who can really blame them? They have lost their last three games, and they have gotten bulldozed in their last two games. Those two devastating losses were handed by mediocre teams with a a combined 11-11 record. Even among the large group of so-so teams in the league, the New Orleans Saints are far below...

New Orleans Saints defensive and special teams player grades at Houston Texans

On the surface you may look at 24 points and think “oh it wasn’t that bad!” but it was. The defense was as bad as ever. Brian Hoyer did whatever he wanted for the most part. Late in the game the run defense improved and the Saints sent 5/6 guys on every third and long which helped them get off the field. The pass rush with 4 guys was absolutely non existent. This defense is...

Sean Payton makes outrageous claim on Dennis Allen’s debut

The New Orleans Saints own arguably the absolute worst defense in NFL history, but don’t tell that to Sean Payton. Defensive coordinator Dennis Allen took over for the fired Rob Ryan, and it was an ugly debut: 24 points allowed, 205 passing yards and 167 rushing yards. But that’s okay, because Payton believes their defense was fine under Allen, per Evan Woodberry of

Look: Saints see incredible streak come to an end on Sunday

The New Orleans Saints’ identity has been completely on offence ever since Drew Brees signed with them nine years ago. Plenty of incredible streaks and records have come and gone for New Orleans. It’s fitting that such a remarkable streak came to end in a dismal 2015 season and ugly 24-6 loss to the Houston Texans. Saints fail to score TD for first time in 155 games, second...

Saints are likely the worst team in the league, get stomped 24-6

This is not a day to cry, nay it is a day to celebrate. Why you ask? Because finally, FINALLY, the ‘same ol Saints’ crowd gets their day in the sun. They have been telling you all for years that its all a mirage, that the Saints are secretly an awful organization and the Super Bowl win was nothing more than a mass delusion. The Saints are awful at FA, awful at drafting, and reports...

Saints Nation Guru – Week 12 – Texans

So by the time this is posted the game against the Redskins has been a week away. For me writing it, it has been just a few hours. Patrick bailed out in the 4th quarter according to his twitter. I stopped paying attention too I must admit. The only thing I was rooting for was my fantasy players. Losing an other 20 yards is ok as long as Byrd made the tackle and giving me a point...

Just how bad is the Saints defense? Here are the numbers

For the first time since October, the New Orleans Saints will NOT surrender 40-plus points this week. I can guarantee you that only because the Saints do not in fact play this week. Otherwise, there’d be no reason to expect a defense that has given up an insane 116 points in its last three games wouldn’t be victimized again, regardless of its opponent. The Saints fired defensive...
