Can the New Orleans Saints Turn the Season Around?

The New Orleans Saints were projected by many to be Super Bowl contenders this season. They were predicted to run through the NFC South division en route to a top four seed in the playoffs. But at just 4-6, the disappointing Saints sit in 2nd place behind the Atlanta Falcons in the division. The Saints are very fortunate to be in 2nd place in the division with a dismal record...

Mailbag: What in the world happened to New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram

Nick, how can one player go from dominant to mediocre so quickly? Was this past weekend’s version of Mark Ingram the real him? – Kendall, Baton Rouge Kendall, as much as I’d like to say that the real Mark Ingram was the angry bull we saw the previous three weeks, I think his overall NFL stature is much closer to Sunday’s performance than any other. Prior to 2013 Ingram hadn’t...

Saints Offensive Player Grades vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Saints put up 10 points at home against the 30th defense in the NFL. Granted the defense allowed such long clock draining drives, that didn’t help, but the bottom line is the production wasn’t good enough. The Saints put up 75 yards on the ground and 2.9 per carry against a defense that was giving up over 140 yards per game rushing and 4.5 per carry going in. The offensive...

Game Recap: New Orleans Saints dismal season continues against Cincinnati

It was another home disappointment for the Saints on Sunday, as they fell to the Bengals 27-10. MVP – No One As this is a Saints-centric site I’m inclined to pick someone from the Saints to be the MVP in this one, but for the life of me I can’t find anyone who even played respectably in this game. The offense was stagnant, the defense was porous, and even the special teams...

Drew Brees Fumble Gives 49ers a Chance to Steal Win in New Orleans

The New Orleans Saints are usually money in the bank when they play at home. So even though a very tough 49ers team was in town hopes were still high for the home team.

Saints Nation Guru – Week 10 – 49ers

So that was an awesome game. The real winners here, the defense who did not quit and found themselves. Although it helps if there is only 1 real WR on the opponents side and you have a Pro-Bowl CB on the roster. I would like to thank Deion Sanders for pointing that out in the post game show. That might have been the only thing not equivalent to verbal diarrhea coming from his mouth...
