Cleveland Browns big Free Agency Splash – More like a ripple!

One thing that I’ve always been successfully able to manage has been having overly high expectations.  Being a life-long Browns fan, the ability to temper my exuberance on all matters football has probably kept me from being committed, or at least going into rehab. Four days ago, I was anxiously awaiting the beginning of free agency so I could watch my Browns take that big pile...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Offensive Line

The offensive line in 2013 was a complete mess until late in the season. Then something weird happened. The Saints made the move to have Terron Armstead replace Charles Brown at left tackle, the team started to run the ball not only more but more effectively, and that unit ended the year on a real high note. By the end of the playoffs the line almost felt like a strength on the team...

The Saints will not draft an offensive lineman in round one

Draft analyst after draft analyst mock an offensive tackle to the New Orleans Saints with pick number 27 of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft. I have one simple question: Why? I understand most of said analysts are not Saints fans, and because the team maintains a relatively low profile outside of the Gulf South most fans and analysts are limited in their understanding of what...

Terron Armstead is ready to shine in 2014

I started this year off talking about the pre-season battle to take over the gaping hole at left tackle in the wake of Jermon Bushrod’s departure to Chicago. Charles Brown eventually won the battle, but not the war. By the end of the year, Terron Armstead worked his way into the starting lineup and maintained that position until their season’s unfortunate end in Seattle. Who...

Five Things to Look at in Saints at Seahawks - PLAYOFF EDITION!

ZB Game of the Week: Saints at Panthers

Two weeks ago in New Orleans, the Saints put a whoopin’ on Carolina, ending the Panthers’ eight-game win streak. The victory reestablished the Saints as the favorite in the NFC South and gave them control of their own destiny. That changed last week, when Drew Brees and Co. laid an egg in St. Louis. So the Saints/Panthers rematch this weekend, once again, has huge stakes. And...

If "do your job" is the tagline that the Saints were supposed to abide by last season, clearly that didn't carry over to some this year under Sean Payton's eyes. Here we are, at 10-4, going into the biggest regular season maybe in team history against the Carolina Panthers. Week 16, and the roster as been significantly revamped.

Yet another dismal showing by the Saints' offense, which we've seen quite a bit of this year, especially recently. To me the most glaring issue was under the microscope and more visibly on display in this game in particular, but it's been the elephant in the room all season. We often ignore it because the team is doing well, and we conveniently hide behind the safety...

Saints Nation: Saints Implode in St. Louis, Lose 27-16

This game will do nothing to stunt the narrative that suggests the Saints can't play on the road. Forget cold weather games, the Saints got embarrassed in a dome by a 5-8 team. There was no phase of the game where the Saints played well. They didn't stop the run, they couldn't get off the field on 3rd down, they couldn't run the ball, the pass protection was non-existent...

The offense didn't have one of their best performances by any means, but got the job done.

The running game was decent early, just good enough to force the Bears to passively pay attention to it. That helped the passing game and protection...
