Game Recap: New Orleans Saints snatch loss from jaws of victory

Once again the Saints found a way to lose a game they had every right to win, falling to the San Francisco 49ers 27-24 at home. MVP – Ramon Humber Again a defensive player is our MVP, and how can you blame us? The offense only looks passable in spurts, and in this one it was the Saints defense and their ability to contain Colin Kaepernick that kept New Orleans in the ball game...

Five Things to Look for in Saints @ Lions

The bye week was fun and all but I’ve been desperate for some Saints football. I will admit that sitting on an overtime walk off win for two weeks has been much easier to tolerate than some bye weeks in the past. In just a handful of hours the Saints will be back to their season and this is a chance to get back to .500 for the first time since Cleveland made that gut wrenching...

What's Next For The New Orleans Saints?

All the "talking heads" said that the Saints had to beat Tampa to save their season. So, that being done now, what's next? First of all, there's the league-mandated bye week. And all things considered, this could have played out to be a very opportune time for it after all. So far this season, the injuries have mounted up. Key players like tight end Jimmy Graham, center Jonathan...

Saints start bye week looking for improvement

METAIRIE, La. (AP) When Saints players gathered at team headquarters Monday for a film review session before getting the rest of their bye week off, coach Sean Payton had a request. While his team was relieved to head into the break coming off a victory over Tampa Bay, Payton wanted to be sure his players were able to still harness the same analytical focus they had a week earlier...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades vs. Buccaneers

A win is a win. The Saints scored 31 points in regulation and drove 80 yards for a winning score in overtime to find a way to steal this game. Based on that the offense deserves a lot of credit. The offense rushed for 140 yards (4.8 per carry) and added 371 through the air. While that kind of production is every bit of what they needed to pull this game off, this game would have...

Five things to look for in Buccaneers at Saints

Going into this game with the news of Jairus Byrd gone for the season just isn’t the same. The Saints are 1-3 and now they no longer have what the salary cap suggests is one of the team’s top 5 players. So where does that leave the Saints?

Saints Travel to Dallas for Week 4 Test vs. Cowboys

After a less than impressive 0-2 start to their 2014 campaign, the New Orleans Saints managed to get a little positive momentum established against the Vikings, taking a 20-9 victory at home. But this week it's back on the road for their border skirmish with the Dallas Cowboys. In recent years, this has become quite an annual battle. In 2009, the Saints reeled off 13 straight wins...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Falcons

The offense put up 34 points and were effective both running and passing. That should be sufficient for a win, and yet the unit will live with the regret of a couple miscues that left some points out there. And while it’s hard to blame the offense for the loss, the Colston fumble was the final dagger. Still, the Saints on this side of the ball seem in sync and primed to put up...

Five Things to Look for in Saints @ Colts (Preseason Edition)

The Saints are nationally televised for this heart stopper of a preseason game in Indianapolis today. I say “heartstopper”, mind you, not because of the excitement level but because it’s preseason and these games are flatlines with no pulse. In fact, I’m not certain these preseason games mustered a feint pulse to begin with. So maybe the heart never stopped. Maybe it was...

Greenbrier day 3 recap

The most significant thing I noticed at practice yesterday was that Jonathan Goodwin had been moved to left guard to compensate for the continued absence of Ben Grubbs. Goodwin took every single snap at that position with the 1s throughout practice. Interestingly, the guy he replaced in Senio Kelemete didn’t go to the bench but instead shifted over to center. That was a very curious...

Day 2 at the Greenbrier

Yesterday was an off day for the team, so not much to report. I ran into Jonathan Goodwin on his way to getting a massage who said he felt really good about how he was playing, in addition to being completely healthy. The biggest news was that I saw Victor Butler walking around in a walking boot. Prior to that no news had come out on Butler of an injury, but clearly he’s dealing...
