Saints Nation: Training Camp Position Battle Preview - Guards

The guard position is probably one of the most secure on the Saints' team, but also one of the most important. The Saints have spent much more money on this position than the tackle position, which suggests they value it much higher with Drew Brees at quarterback. Interesting, because traditionally tackle has always been more important to other NFL teams. Brees has great footwork...

Players Comment On Wildcard Weekend

  Part of what makes the NFL America’s Game is the fact that anything could happen.  ’Any given Sunday’ was expanded to a very wild wildcard weekend, as all four home teams unexpectedly won, leaving my playoff bracket dead in the water (1-3). But I digress. The Redskins actually had a rooting interest in each one of the four games this weekend.  Here’s a recap: Cincinnati...

No-Shave-November Yields Few Honors

AP Image November is a month dominated by football, Thanksgiving, and the growth of beards and mustaches for a good cause. Call it what you want: Movember, No-Shave-November; but it’s a good opportunity for Redskins players to put down the razors and show what they can grow.

Players Having A Deep-Fried Thanksgiving

There are three fundamental truths to this Thanksgiving holiday: 1. Football will be on TV. 2. Food will be on the table. 3. And one of the best ways to cook anything is in the deep fryer.
