Positional review: Wide Receiver

If I were ranking these positions purely on talent and maximum potential, then the Saints Wide receivers might be at the very top for the team. There is more receiving talent on this team than at any point in the Brees/Payton era. However, there is also a lot of young and (as of yet) unproven talent that is still developing. Football is a game that requires a lot more than the raw...

Grade Day: New Orleans Saints show out at 2015 Pro Bowl

The New Orleans Saints couldn’t seem to put it all together during the 2014 season, but bless their hearts they showed up at the 2015 Pro Bowl.

Drew Brees: An Aging Star, A Lost Season

Good piece by Greg A. Bedard below on Monday Morning Quarterback. This touches on the reasons for 2014 demise we’ve all already discussed, but it’s worth repeating because the quote by Brees is poignant. This quote is still indirect, but reading between the line it’s clear he thinks that while the team may be talented, lack of maturity and leadership doomed the Saints from...

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.

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.

But last season, with Graham's production down significantly early on, the Saints discovered that they not only had depth at the position...
