Saints Nation: Final Saints' Player Grades for the 2012 Season

With the season officially over, I've included below all the player GPAs for the season. I will be announcing my player awards for the season this week as well, but before I do that you'll get a good sense of who will win what based on these final grades. Perhaps my grading was a little harsher than last year, but you'll see the difference between a 13-3 team and a 7...

Tracy Porter doesn't get shot at former team

Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter missed his second straight game Sunday night because of symptoms he continues to experience following a seizure he had in August. Porter was held out of practice most of the week and visited a doctor in hopes of being cleared to play against his former team, the New Orleans Saints. He'll be replaced by Chris Harris in the base defense with Tony...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Buccaneers

Anytime your offense puts up over 30 points you have to be pretty satisfied with that. The grades reflect that for the most part. Late in the first half we saw just how scary the Saints can be when they are firing on all cylinders. I wasn't thrilled with the play-calling in the 2nd half which was conservative. Right now this defense is just too bad to milk the clock. The...

Saints Nation: Saints' Offensive Player Grades vs. Chargers

The Saints finally have a W and can go into the bye week with the relief of knowing they are no longer winless. It didn't come easy and the offense wasn't always dominant, but they got the job done. One point of concern has been the run game, which for the second week in a row looked completely unable to get anything going. That said, despite no Lance Moore, a diminished...

Saints Nation: Saints' Offensive Player Grades @ Packers

The offense on this day looked more like the 2011 version of the Saints, at least to some extent, but they will live with their fair share of regrets based on the 1 point loss. The positives in my mind were the play of Drew Brees and the pass protection. Unfortunately for this team and for what has been the case all season, the minute one area plays well, other areas fall apart...

Vote: Which Ravens Player Should Be the Patriots' Biggest Concern on Sunday?

For Bill Belichick, Ed Reed may be "the one that got away." Back in April of 2002, Belichick and Scott Pioli chose to take tight end Daniel Graham with the 21st overall pick in the NFL draft. Reed went just three picks later, and after eight pro bowl appearances and eight all-pro teams, the Patriots head coach may still be kicking himself. But after eleven seasons in the...

NFL Week 3: Patriots Offense Like Looking In Mirror Vs Ravens Offense On Sunday Night Football?

The New England Patriots became famous in NFL Draft circles for drafting multiple tight ends in the draft in various years. Drafting one in the first round never worked out as well, such as with Daniel Graham or Benjamin Watson, but once the Patriots learned that you could draft two or three in the second through seventh rounds instead of just one in the first, things started to...

Saints Nation: Saints Make Numerous Roster Changes Heading into Jaguars Preseason Game

I've neglected to make light of some of the roster moves the Saints have made over the last week so I wanted to catch up on that front. On 8/6, the Saints waived CB Laron Scott (despite a nice kickoff return in the game against the Cardinals) and injured G Scott Winnewisser. To replace them in time for the Patriots game, the Saints re-signed LB Ramon Humber (pictured), who is...

Pursuit Of A Veteran Blocking Tight End

  With Owen Daniels, James Casey and Garret Graham, the tight end position appeared to be a strength for the Houston Texans but is now possibly a weakness, as pointed out by Kubiak last week, “We’ve normally had a physical tight end around here to go with O.D. (Owen Daniels). We don’t have that presence right now. That’s something Rick (Smith) and I are looking at.” ...
