SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Mailbag: Is there a precedent to move on from New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees?

Nick, there’s no question it’s been a difficult season so far. In light of Drew Brees’ late interception against the Lions, I have to ask if the Saints should move on from Brees this offseason like the Colts did with Peyton Manning? – Carl Carl, I understand your frustration and Brees certainly hasn’t been at his best this year. But we need to be careful with this kind...

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees deemed one of Week 7′s biggest goats

Nearly midway through the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

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? That’s what I’m doing — trying to.”   var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551'...

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...

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...

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...
