Saints offense could face changes after season

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Four seasons after the Saints traded to get back into the first round of the draft to select Mark Ingram, the running back could be playing in his final game with New Orleans on Sunday. He's not the only one. With the Saints missing the playoffs for only the fourth time in nine seasons, New Orleans' offense could see a roster shakeup in the offseason. The Saints...

Saints Offensive Player Grades vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Saints put up 10 points at home against the 30th defense in the NFL. Granted the defense allowed such long clock draining drives, that didn’t help, but the bottom line is the production wasn’t good enough. The Saints put up 75 yards on the ground and 2.9 per carry against a defense that was giving up over 140 yards per game rushing and 4.5 per carry going in. The offensive...

Five Things to Look for in Saints @ Lions

The bye week was fun and all but I’ve been desperate for some Saints football. I will admit that sitting on an overtime walk off win for two weeks has been much easier to tolerate than some bye weeks in the past. In just a handful of hours the Saints will be back to their season and this is a chance to get back to .500 for the first time since Cleveland made that gut wrenching...

Where the Saints roster stands with injuries and depth

Time is dwindling for the Saints to get themselves prepared for the regular season, particularly with some of the veteran players who have been missing practice. That’s why yesterday had some terrific news if you’ve been paying attention to the team’s extensive injury list. Drew Brees, Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs all returned to practice in full for the 11 on 11 drills, a surefire...

Young Guys Making Names for Themselves, Pushing Veterans. Saints Preseason Week 2 Review

#453667246 / gettyimages.com Deuce Windham NFC South Staff Writer Once again the Saints flicked on the Friday Night Lights and completed their second preseason game of the 2014 season with a victory.  We move to 2-0 during the preseason (a meaningless stat, but) and there was a lot of good, and bad, performances to go over from last night’s game. Drew Brees, Jahri Evans and Ben...

Saints prepare to march into New Orleans with questions marks

Wednesday the New Orleans Saints capped off their West Virginia training camp experiment on a high note, with players and coaches heralding the three-week stay at the Greenbrier as a triumphant success.  Head coach Sean Payton predicts the team will return for more pre-seasons than the current contract calls for at the present time.  "It's written for the next two years, but we...

Saints win preseason opener 26-24 at Rams

It was about what you’d expect from a preseason game. Lots of sloppiness, mistakes, and boredom to a degree. But I thought the positives outweighed the negatives overall. The Rams missed a 59 yard field goal just wide left at the buzzer to finish the game. The Saints will leave this game with plenty to work on but when you consider the fact that both sides of the ball showed good...

Greenbrier Day 4 recap

This was my final full day at the Greenbrier and I’m sad to see it coming to an end. Today was very much the massacre day as the Saints are starting to drop like flies. A lot of guys are banged up. As much as I can tell, here’s the injury status right now: Drew Brees (oblique) not in pads, practicing a bit with conditioning off to the side. Champ Bailey (foot) has been out, was...

Greenbrier day 3 recap

The most significant thing I noticed at practice yesterday was that Jonathan Goodwin had been moved to left guard to compensate for the continued absence of Ben Grubbs. Goodwin took every single snap at that position with the 1s throughout practice. Interestingly, the guy he replaced in Senio Kelemete didn’t go to the bench but instead shifted over to center. That was a very curious...

New Orleans Saints: State of the Offensive Line

How many times as Saints Fans, while watching a game, have we said: “C’mon man!”, “Are you kidding me?”, “Block for him!”, “There’s too much pressure on Drew!” ? In my opinion, this has been a difficult year for the Saints Offensive Line. Maybe it’s just because we saw so much improvement in the defense department and tend to focus on Drew and the running game...

Pleasant Surprise at the Pro Bowl

I was all set before the weekend even started for the title of this blog post to be "upon further review, yep the Pro Bowl still sucks". Truth be told: I wanted it to be awful. The game had progressively gotten worse and worse every year, with the effort had all but completely gone by the wayside. Quaterbacks were free to survey the field for as long as necessary and the combined...

Saints Nation: Saints Send Five Players to 2013 Pro Bowl

The Saints sent five players to the Pro Bowl this year, with some surprises and some no brainers. As far as snubs, you could make a case for Keenan Lewis, Thomas Morstead, Zach Strief and maybe Junior Galette, but unfortunately they missed out. Colston didn't put up the kind of numbers this year to truly merit being in the discussion. The invitees are Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham, Jahri...
