C.J. Spiller Believes the New Orleans Saints are Super Bowl-Bound

New Orleans Saints running back C.J. Spiller has a better chance of making the playoffs than he had with his former team, the Buffalo Bills. But Spiller took it a step further: He believes the Saints are Super Bowl-bound. While with the Bills—who finished a better-than-average 9-7 in 2014—Spiller had to deal with the AFC East-dominating New England Patriots. After signing...

Finding a winning game plan for the New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints cannot deny they were a huge disappointment last season. When you look at the NFC South on paper (or on the computer in this case), was there a more disappointing division in the NFL last season? The Saints gave away the division in the most unflattering way. The Carolina Panthers proved that if a team gets hot at the right time, anything can happen. With a...

Rumor Mill: Will the New Orleans Saints trade up in the first round?

At this point guessing what any particular team outside of the top five will do in the NFL Draft is a bit like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping it will stick… In fact I think that sounds like a pretty excellent diversion for my evening. I think I’ll boil up a big batch of it for the occasion. Anyway. Today we may have gotten a sneak peek at the New Orleans Saints’...

What to Expect from the Saints’ Wide Receivers

Since 2006, only once did the Saints offense find itself ranked outside the top-five in total yards. During that span, this passing attack has been the catalyst of that success. So to say that Drew Brees has led the best vertical offense for nearly a decade would be an understatement.Surprisingly, in that time, not one Saints’ receiver has been named to a Pro Bowl. This speaks...

2015 Overrated: C.J. Spiller

One thing's for sure, the hype train has always been strong with this one. And deservedly so. A perpetual description of "incredible athlete on the brink of breaking out" was a yearly norm for C.J. Spiller. So much so, he's been heralded as such for the past 581 years. Alright, so maybe it's just four years, but still, in the NFL, that's an average career span right there. And after...

Anthony Spencer missing piece to Saints free agency

I know what some of you are thinking. So let’s get this out of the way. Anthony Spencer is older now, he had microfracture surgery on his knee which devastates the vast majority of NFL careers.
