SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Saints have good showing in Pro Bowl

If you missed the Pro Bowl last night, first of all congratulations. That’s what I’m here for. I suffered through it to give you a little recap since some of our boys were playing for the last time this season. Team Irvin won the game 32-28 meaning Jimmy Graham and Mark Ingram were on the winning side, while Drew Brees suffered through defeat. The winners walk away with $55,000...

Was Keeping Ryan a Good Move for New Orleans?

The 2014 season left Saints fans in complete confusion when it comes to the defense side of the field. Without any doubt, the biggest letdown of the year was the playing and coaching under Rob Ryan. Losing consecutive games by less than three points, while having the lead, is nothing but pure disappointment. After many teams losing head coaches, players, and other personnel, the...

Saints Nation’s 10 Worst Plays of 2014: #6 Colston’s fumble at Falcons

The season started off with such promise as the Saints raced to an early lead in Atlanta while Jairus Byrd quickly created his first takeaway. But Matt Ryan would end up throwing for a career high in yards, the Falcons would march down in the final seconds to send the game to overtime with a 50+ yard field goal, and then Marques Colston would cough up the game with this fumble which...

Saints sign CFL cornerback Delvin Breaux

I guess it’s a good sign that Breaux was so high in demand for a workout, but we’ll need him to turn out better than Marcus Ball if it’s going to help the Saints’ cover abilities at all.   Delvin Breaux, a standout CFL CB who worked out for 13 NFL teams, has reached agreement with the New Orleans Saints. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 24, 2015 You can also...

Saints Draft Analysis: Tight Ends

During the Sean Payton era in New Orleans, there has been perhaps no position on the field as crucial to the success of Drew Brees and this offense than that of the tight end position. And Jimmy Graham has matured into one of the best in the league. But last season, with Graham's production down significantly early on, the Saints discovered that they not only had depth at the position...

Jimmy Graham plans to dunk at the Pro Bowl

Dunking the goal post in official NFL games is a violation that has earned the term “The Jimmy Graham Rule.” New Orleans Saints’ tight end Jimmy Graham, who is known for making some awesome and sometimes goalpost bending dunks, was fined $30,000 in the preseason for violating his namesake rule. Now that Graham is on free range at the Pro Bowl, he was asked if he planned to...

New Orleans Saints Free Agency Departures

As we approach the beginning of the 2015 offseason the New Orleans Saints must take a good hard look at their roster if they hope to not have a repeat of their disappointing 2014 season.

Wednesday New Orleans Saints News & Senior Bowl Practice Items

If yesterday was about the defensive side of the ball, today is about the offensive side of the ball. It’s easy to blame the New Orleans Saints’ lack of success in 2014 entirely on the defense. And it deserves a lot of the blame. But not all of it. The offense was rugged and at times downright offensive (pun very much intended). The offense had its own troubles. Drew Brees...

Reviewing New Orleans Saints prospects from the 2015 Senior Bowl

I’m back! It’s been a month, at least, since I last wrote here in this space. In case you missed me, I sincerely apologize. But that’s how long it’s taken for me to get over the horrendous loss at home to the Atlanta Falcons. Frankly, I’m probably still not over it, but we can pretend. After a month, though, it is time to start thinking seriously about how the Saints can...

Saints Draft Analysis: Wide Receivers

Looking from a purely personnel standpoint, the Saints receiving corps was somewhat underwhelming in 2014. It was never an issue of having the talent, more so of actually showing it. That being said, it is sort of difficult to get a read on exactly how this position could be handled by the team in this year's draft.But you can bet that if there is a talented player that could bolster...

New Orleans Saints: Three New Year's Resolutions For 2015

Do you get the feeling 2015 will be the season that will determine the fate of the New Orleans Saints? After a 7-9 record, the team that could score on a dime and move the ball down the field like they were playing sandlot football looked a bit average, a bit slow and a bit older.That is not a good sign for a franchise that has one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game...
