Catching Up with Richie Andrews: Former FSU Kicker Working to Revolutionize Headgear

They’re rarely talked about when they come through, but never forgotten when they fail. That’s the placekicker. Over his four years at Florida State, Richie Andrews — a young man with a big leg from Fort Lauderdale — blossomed into one of the best in the country. Andrews began his Florida State career under head coach Bobby Bowden in 1987. That year, the Seminoles began a...

Saints kicker battle is Dustin Hopkins vs. Zach Hocker… for now

I don’t think many of us pictured the Saints carrying Dustin Hopkins and Zach Hocker as their two kickers on the 90 man roster right now, and yet here we are. What’s most surprising about this is that Sean Payton has never not had a veteran battling it out in camp before. Whether it was John Carney, Olindo Mare, Martin Grammatica, John Kasay or Shayne Graham, there has always...

NFL moves extra point back to 15-yard line

The extra point as everyone has been used to for years is no more, the NFL owners have approved of a rule change that will move the line of scrimmage on extra point attempts to the 15-yard line. The change will take place for 2015, as reported by Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Talk, and the rule change is just for 2015 and could be revisited by the NFL’s Competition Committee in...

Top 101 All Time Saints Players, 10-19

As we close in on the top 10 (top 9 since I’m revealing #10 here) we are now really zeroing in on the best the franchise has had to offer. My favorite of this list has to be Marques Colston, who still has time to move up this list and re-write the Saints record books. 19. DE Will Smith (2004-2013)   With 67.5 career sacks he’s fourth in team history. His best season came in...

In honor of FIFA World Cup, best kickers in Saints’ history

With Thursday’s all important World Cup match between the United States and Germany in part determining who moves onto the knockout round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, I was wondering about the evolution of the kicker position in the NFL. Of course I knew the “soccer style” of kicking the football had become the common technique for NFL kickers long ago. Upon researching further...

On LeBron talk and the state of journalism … While We’re Waiting

“The idiots are bad, but the smart people who take them seriously might be even more unbearable. … With the people who think LeBron isn’t a real winner, has no heart, will never be MJ, whatever … Why should anyone care what they think? It’s like discussing Obama’s legacy with people who still think he was born in Kenya.” – Grantland’s Andrew Sharp I’m a big fan...

Aaron Brooks and John Carney to Saints Hall of Fame

The picture you see is a Sports Illustrated cover of the Saints’ first regular season game after Hurricane Katrina. While that was by far Aaron Brooks’ worst season as a Saint as the team went 3-13, they won their first game to go 1-0 on a game winning John Carney field goal thanks to a drive orchestrated by Brooks. It may not have the sizzle of the return to the Superdome a...
