What to focus on during tonight’s game

The preseason is upon us. It is a time of breakout performances, unrealistic expectations, surefire bottom of the roster ‘stars’, and even a few guys that make you wonder how they got there. I have given myself the unenviable duty of re-watching each preseason game and looking for the few bits and pieces that are actually relevant from these games. To a certain degree this year’s...

Which position can the Saints least afford an injury besides quarterback?

Maybe it’s the cynic in me but every time training camp starts I immediately worry about the starters that won’t make it through and healthy coming into week 1 of the regular season.

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Receivers and Tight Ends

Wide receiver has been a position of depth and strength during the majority of the Sean Payton era, but the lack of development of younger guys combined with the aging of the veterans has left the Saints a little thin at the position. The Saints need to infuse more talent into this group if they want the offense to continue to perform at level we're all used to, especially now...
