Saints getting a first look at their defensive overhaul

METAIRIE, La. (AP) An autograph-covered football commemorating the New England Patriots' Super Bowl triumph last season now sits in cornerback Brandon Browner's locker at the headquarters of his new NFL team, the New Orleans Saints. In a sense, Browner is the face of a defensive overhaul New Orleans initiated after ranking second to last in yards allowed last season. He isn't trying...

Should the New Orleans Saints go after Arik Armstead at No. 13?

Don’t look now, but there may be another leader in the clubhouse for the New Orleans Saints with the No. 13 pick in next week’s NFL Draft. Brace yourselves, Saints fans, there will be a lot of those words spoken in the next 12 days. Figure that prognosticators and analysts will change picks more than they change their underwear. This time, while a pass rusher is expected to be...

The Miami Dolphins have been very busy this offseason, as they signed free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, tight end Jordan Cameron, traded for wide receiver Kenny Stills from the Saints and then they traded away wide receiver Mike Wallace and his hefty contract.

Don’t expect the Saints to draft a character red flag, ever

Lots of chatter recently I’ve seen online (and on twitter) center around the question of whether or not the Saints would take guys like LB Randy Gregory, CB Marcus Peters and WR Dorial Green-Beckham. If you’ve never heard of these players, they’re all three considered some of the best prospects at their position but their stock in the draft has dropped due to off the field...

New Orleans Saints: Roles of Offseason Acquisitions

View image | The New Orleans Saints were in a tight bind in regard to cap space this offseason, fans shouldn’t have expected more than what was given. It’s like going to a restaurant with bad ratings, you don’t know what to expect, but you aren’t going to expect the best possible scenario. It seems that the Saints are going to a more defensive minded approach...

Dolphins continue to revamp receiving core

The Dolphins have added tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills in the past week. Cameron, if healthy has the potential to be a stud. The only question mark is he has had three concussions. Cameron is potentially replacing Charles Clay, who just yesterday signed an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins have until Sunday to match that offer. Cameron is the...

Trade Targets The Bears Must At Least Consider

It seems every team is getting in on the crazy trade action of late around the NFL.  Every team except the Chicago Bears.  While others are wheeling and dealing, GM Ryan Pace has gone about his business in a meticulous and methodical manner.  His only transaction of the trade variety came when he dealt Brandon Marshall to the Jets before the insanity even began. Regardless, this...

How do the Saints overcome salary cap issues?

The New Orleans Saints entered this past regular season with Super Bowl aspirations. A year removed from earning a playoff spot, Drew Brees and company seemed destined to control the landscape in the NFC South. What followed was one of the most disappointing seasons in recent franchise history. New Orleans finished with a 7-9 record and in second place in a historically bad division...

Position Review: Defensive Line

Now at last we are getting to one of the three positions on the team that the Saints MUST address in the off-season in some shape or form if they want to even dream of winning the division…much less the Super Bowl.  The Saints Defensive Line took the biggest step back of any unit from 13′ to 14′. That’s right it fell further than the corners or the linebackers the two units...

Saints Nation’s Top 10 Plays of the 2014 Season: #6 The Brief Return of Joe Morgan

Joe Morgan is no longer with the Saints and his high potential was sadly never realized. But after missing 2013 with an devastating knee injury it was still nice to see him break away not once, but twice, for old time’s sake against the Baltimore Ravens. For one game it looked like Joe Morgan was back. Hard to believe after this game he would be gone for good shortly after. Watch...

Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades at Bucs

The defense played an embarrassingly horrible game in the first half which led to a 20-7 deficit. Then, the Bucs shelved Mike Evans (after Vincent Jackson had already left the game in the first quarter) and refused to throw the football. Surprisingly the Saints made some nice tackles and were able to contain the run game and it resulted in stops. And of course the defense came up...

Saints vs Panthers will tell us who they are

Well we all totally saw that coming right? The Saints who are notoriously a vastly superior team at home versus on the road (who isn’t?) get shellacked at home and lose 3 straight, and then go on the road and give a pseudo-beatdown to the Pittsburg Stealers. Yup, totally saw it coming. Well that is as they say ‘why they play the games’. Who Dat Dish’s Barry Hirstius talked...

Saints Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades at Steelers

The defense gave up 32 points and 538 yards. On the surface if you told me that going in, I’d figure that meant an epic horror film ending in a gory Saints loss. But the unit actually played well. At least as well as they are capable of playing at this point. No it wasn’t pretty and yes the last two drives were inexcusable. Let’s face it, the tackling was a joke. But the fact...

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...

Perspective is a great thing to practice.

They are coming off of back-to-back victories and have an average scoring margin (points scored minus given up) of 12.7 since their bye week, fifth-best...
