The Saints will look to rebound from a largely questionable performance in Baltimore to play better in New Orleans. After practicing with the Patriots at the Greenbrier the Saints will now face them in a live game. Here are five things I’ll be looking for: 1. No serious injuries. True to form we’re sticking with this as the permanent preseason #1. I’m glad I pointed that out...

Brandon Browner is looking forward to some tough matchups in 2015. Possibly one of the toughest of those matchups will come against Julio Jones, and the New Orleans Saints will obviously face him twice.

Saints defense generating more concern than confidence

Revamping the Saints defense was a key priority coming into this season, but the fruits of the labor of New Orleans' front office are still in question. Granted, the Black and Gold is grappling with some key absences/injuries....Brandon Browner, Dannell Ellerbe, Jairus Byrd...but the fact that the Saints first team defense failed to record a sack versus the Baltimore Ravens in the...

New Orleans Saints rookie linebackers shine in their NFL debut

That was a rough game to watch.  The New Orleans Saints came out and played sloppy in another loss to Baltimore, losing 143 yards to 16 penalties. A number of injuries plagued the team, but the three starters who went down early – cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Delvin Breaux, and linebacker Danell Ellerbe – have all been reported to have avoided any severe injuries.  So...

Expect a lot of vanilla as Ravens host Saints in PS1…

I don’t expect the first-team Ravens guys to play much, if at all, on Thursday night against the Saints. Same goes for the Saints’ big playmakers, like Mark Ingram…save ’em for the games that count seems to be the new mantra around the league. Baltimore fans are excited to have football back in town when the Ravens play the Saints under the lights on Thursday night. But...

2015 Roleplayers and ‘Splash players’ first look

Since I first started watching Football back in 2006 there have been two things I could count on every year, the New Orleans Saints offense being great and their defense being mediocre or worse. Even if you add in years like 2010 or 2013 where statistically speaking the defenses were ok, they really benefited from a weak offensive schedule. Even in the magical 2009 season the defense...

Ranking the NFC South Positional Groups: Cornerbacks

#1 New Orleans After a disastrous year for the secondary, the Saints set out to make sure not to repeat the mistake of overestimating the quality of depth at the position. Keenan Lewis is probably on that second tier of top cornerbacks. He routinely takes players out of the game. Brandon Browner was brought in to be the #2 cornerback opposite Lewis, but he could get some real competition...

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

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...
