NFL Notes: NFC East, Browns, Cowboys, Steelers, & Texans

NFC East Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti told The Oregonian on Monday that he has spoken to every NFC East about a potential position in an attempt to gain an edge on Eagles HC Chip Kelly. “I have been asked by everybody in the NFC East ...” Aliotti, who is now retired. “The Giants asked me to come back when Chip got the first job.

Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. 49ers

The defense played poorly in the first half and with a 21-10 deficit at halftime things looked bleak. Then the defense shut down the 49ers completely for the rest of the game until a 51 yard pass on 4th and 10 with the game on the line. In overtime they did everything they could to win the game for the team, but the Saints’ offense was intent on giving it away. The defense deserved...

Scouting report for week 10: 49ers

Carolina was the first time all year that I claimed the Saints were playing an inferior opponent and should win handily… and they did. They have only played two other teams in their league through 8 games (Det, GB) and through the next 5 weeks they will play 4. Of all of those teams, not one of them has as much hype, history, or emotional baggage attached to it as the upcoming...

Injury Bug Comes at a Bad Time for Cameron

#455865994 / Jordan Cameron was a stud in 2013. The former USC Trojan hauled in 80 catches for 917 yards and 7 TDs in 2013 while being thrown to by a QB carousel of Brian Hoyer, Brandon Weeden, and Jason Campbell. Cameron turned into the star that everyone knew he could, and quickly captured national attention as one of the top TEs in the game. Unfortunately Cameron...

Saints Nation Guru – Week 4 – Cowboys

Boy am I glad JDup22 had the bonus question way off (by 41 yards) or this would have been the most lopsided guru victory very soon! He had 3 answers correct. The answers were: No, still no points given up on the first drive. Cadet ran the ball twice. The first TD was scored by Pierre Thomas and Cameron Jordan had the second Sack. Finally a multi sack game. The total yards that Robinson...

Cleveland Browns OC Kyle Shanahan Needs to Get Jordan Cameron the Ball

After Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, there are many directions one can go to assess blame for the inability to close out a rival and move to 2-1 before the bye week. Since every sports talk show and website around the web will be doing that today, I’d like to focus on something more alarming—the lack of working Jordan Cameron into the offensive strategy on Sunday.

Minnesota gets a Viking funeral: Saints scouting report week 3

Tell me if you have heard this one before; the Saints are by far the better team here and should win this game by a landslide. That was the case week 1, was the case last week against Cleveland, and is the case this week against Minnesota. They key word there of course is should.

Could New Cleveland Browns Tight End Gerell Robinson Surprise on Sunday?

Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl tight end, Jordan Cameron, returned to practice on Wednesday. His return came in a limited fashion, as the star pass catcher did light work, while making his way back from a shoulder injury. Whether Cameron suits up on Sunday or not will likely be a game-time decision, but whether he should suit up at all is an entirely different question to pose. With Cameron’s...

For the second consecutive week the Saints gave up a game winning field goal and this time it was even more on the defense. Yes the tackling and coverage was worse against Atlanta, but the degree of difficulty was so much lower against the Browns.

Saints lose 26-24 to the Browns

For the second straight game a field goal ended the game (there were 3 seconds left in regulation this time). The narrative has always been that the Saints are a different team on the road. I thought the playoff win in Philadelphia put that to rest but it’s hard to argue against that at this point. If you can’t beat the Cleveland Browns with Brian Hoyer at quarterback and no...
