NFC South Off-Season grades: Saints

Since we are now approaching training camp I figure it’s time I get off my butt and start taking a look into the 2015-16 season. The first thing I want to do is to take a look at all of the teams from the NFC South and I’m going to grade their off-seasons. Now to be clear this isn’t necessarily a grade on the team overall, that will come later when I scout them, it’s just...

What the Pundits Are Getting Wrong About The 2015 Patriots

If you look at the 2015 New England Patriots from strictly a "change-of-personnel" standpoint, things look pretty stale for the defending champs. Let's face it, the loss of Darrelle Revis alone is enough to cast doubt on the ability of the defense to stop opposing offenses. Add Vince Wilfork, Brandon Browner, Alphonso Dennard, and Kyle Arrington to that list and the doubt grows...

Brandon Browner and Keenan Lewis could be huge bargains for the New Orleans Saints

Going into this spring, I and many other people thought that this era of New Orleans Saints history would come to a close in 2017.  The contracts of the most important pieces to the franchise – Sean Payton, Drew Brees, Jahri Evans, Marques Colston, Curtis Lofton, and others – were all slated to expire in two years, giving the Saints a brief window to make the defense acceptable...

Breaux-mancing and other Mini Camp Updates

Brandon Browner watched Wednesday’s practice with a minor “tweak,” and first year corner Delvin Breaux took his place with the first team defense. He did not disappoint. Breaux made a one handed interception while covering Josh Morgan on a back shoulder throw. Back shoulder throws are hard to defend in the first place. Picking one off is pretty impressive, especially again...

The Saints have a Simple Kind of Plan

The second week of OTA’s wrapped up today and a theme is emerging in regards to the defense. Simple. Last week corners Brandon Browner and Stanley Jean-Baptiste both made comments about the defense being stripped down and simplified. Coach Payton was asked at Thursdays practice if the defense was indeed being simplified. Coach Patyon: “Yes to improve execution, reduce the variables...

Gimme Three Steps: NOPD More Than A Catchy Nickname

Last week veteran cornerback Keenan Lewis dubbed the New Orleans Saints secondary "The NOPD" (New Orleans Pass Defense). But it is catching on with many in the WhoDat Nation. There is even a Facebook page devoted to them already. Many of these people are hoping that they patrol the secondary and dole out punishment to those who challenge them with 'extreme prejudice'.This unit is...

The 2015 Saints are a ‘Barrel of Monkeys’

The 2015 Saints need to be a ‘Barrel of Monkeys’. If you are wondering what the heck I am talking about that’s understandable. I am of course referring to the children’s game where you take a large number of monkey shaped figurines and use their hooked arms to create a long linked chain of ‘monkeys’.  The purpose of the game is to use one monkey to pick up another, and...

Post draft analysis: CB, D-Line, RB

The Saints roster isn’t the ‘night and day’ level of difference that some media members have implied with all of the ‘fire sale’ talk, but there has been some fairly significant change this year. Hopefully all of that is for the better and the Saints have been able to cover many of their weaknesses from last year, only time will tell. What we can look at it how the positions...

New Orleans Saints sign CB Brandon Browner

It’s a common narrative that Brandon Browner is a good cornerback. After all, he’s the only play in the NFL to win each of the last 2 Super Bowls, as he was on the Seahawks in 2013 and the Patriots in 2014. Plus, he’s so big (6-4 221)! Well, he didn’t even play past week 10 for the Seahawks in 2013 because of suspension and he’s one performance enhancing drug suspension...
