New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees doesn’t fare well in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

Texas A&M Football: The New and Improved Va Tech

Pre-1999, UVA was the football powerhouse in Virginia, with Va Tech as the “other” school.  Aaron Brooks, Thomas Jones, and just about every other legitimate talent went to UVA.  In fact, some Vick guy committed to Tech because his fellow district rival, Virginia Mr. Football and Basketball, Ronald Curry initially committed to UVA.  Then the unfortunate injury happened. ...

How Can A Driver’s License Impact the Arizona Cardinals?

Your driver’s license seems like a rather harmless thing. You might be an organ donor. You may have the sticker for an ignition interlock device on yours. You probably have a horrendous picture on yours. For the Arizona Cardinals, a simple driver’s license could really derail the team if they make it to the playoffs for a second straight year. According to Catherine Holland of...

San Diego Chargers: Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

The San Diego Chargers have been guilty of getting rid of or negligent in drafting Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. Just look at their history: they traded the rights to Eli Manning, released Drew Brees and passed on selecting Tom Brady in the NFL Draft. The common thread between all three is the ability to play at their best in big games. How often does a franchise regret their...

What are the New Orleans Saints' Plans at Tight End?

Since the beginning of the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era, the Saints have been a team that utilized the tight-end position extremely well; this has been a huge part of their offensive success. In 2014 the Saints tight ends were, like always, a huge part of the offense's scheme. So if New Orleans wants to keep this strategy heading into 2015, what changes need to made? Last season, the...

Is New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees too low in this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

New Orleans Saints climb in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

Jameis Winston Reportedly Met with the New Orleans Saints

A handful of quarterback-needy teams with early first-round picks in the upcoming draft met with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston at the NFL Scouting Combine. However, one of the somewhat more surprising of teams who reportedly met with Winston was the New Orleans Saints. Probably just an act of due diligence, it is still intriguing that the Saints—selecting 13th overall—chose...

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.

New Orleans Saints Receivers: Divided Attention

931 is the most yards gained by a New Orleans receiver in 2014. 1,430 yards was the league lead. Considering that the Saints were ranked in the top five in passing yards last season, that seems a little odd. But does it really? Of the sixteen players to catch a pass last season, and yes, I'm counting the time Drew Brees caught his own--eleven of them racked up more than 100 yards...
