So, all those big Patriots “fanz” who felt that last week’s win was “cheapened” by a “gift” pass interference call have to be waking up pretty pleased this morning, right? I mean, better to lose honorably than to get a cheap win, right? So, congratulations, Pats Fanz on the loss! The Patriots had issues scoring touchdowns in the red zone yesterday, which led to a 24...

Saints Nation: Training Camp Position Battle Preview - Specialists

Special teams is relatively stable and shouldn't feature much competition. In fact, the only battle is at kicker, since the Saints aren't even bothering bringing more than one punter and one long snapper to camp. That kind of stability is nice, as special teams is largely a stable unit. And while it won't be mentioned in the player presentation below, who ends up the...

John Kasay Cut By Saints

Former Pro Bowl kicker John Kasay was released by New Orleans on Friday.Fantasy Spin:The Saints kicked (no pun intended) the 42-year-old Kasay to the curb in favor of fifth-year kicker Garrett Hartley. Lots of kickers have been swapping places over the last few days so it's very possible Kasay will find a new home within the next couple of weeks.

Saints Nation: Saints Lose Preseason Finale to Titans 10-6

The preseason is over and the Saints leave Nashville with a 10-6 loss at the hands of the Titans. The Saints played very few players of any true importance and had quarterback Sean Canfield play the entirety of the game. The Saints did get a long look at a number of backups to give them one last roll of tape to consider as they finalize their last 22 cuts tomorrow. Below are my brief...

Saints Nation: Who Kicks for the Saints in 2012 - Garrett Hartley or John Kasay?

When Garrett Hartley injured himself in 2011 forcing the Saints to seek outside help to get a kicker on their roster, I suggested that as good as Hartley was, he might be more trouble than he was worth. As I said back then, "If your kicker can't consistently give you 16 games every season then you're dealing with a serious problem". Well, for 4 straight seasons...
