Week 13 New Orleans Saints Preview: How to beat the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been good, and sometimes not so good, this season. Exhibit A was a thrashing of the Carolina Panthers on the road on a Sunday night early in Week 3. The next week, they suffered a debilitating home loss to the then winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers.   It’s been that kind of season for the bumble bees from Steel Town. Still, through 11 games they stand at...

Huge win by Ravens’ total-team effort over Saints, 34-27…

What a huge win for the Ravens… They ultimately turned the Saints’ game plan into a joke. Rob Ryan’s exotic blitz pressures did not work. Joe Flacco and his receivers read the blitz so well… Joe’s audibles at the LOS were right on… The Ravens’ offensive line (especially RG Marshal Yanda and RT Ricky Wagner) was dominant. Huge run-blocking plays courtesy of the up-front...

Game Recap: New Orleans Saints make history in another loss

Another week, another home loss for the Saints. This is the first time since 2007 that the Saints have lost more than two games at home in a row, capped off by a 34-27 loss to Baltimore on Monday night. MVP – Marques Colston After Brandin Cooks was lost for the season to injury it was pretty obvious that someone would need to step up amongst the Saints’ pass-catchers – and...

New Orleans Saints: Four Downs vs. Baltimore

First Down – Replacing Brandin CooksLosing Cooks to the injured reserve due to a broken thumb is tough. As far as the receivers, Cooks is leading the team in just about every receiving category. This means Kenny Stills and Marques Colston must step up. Colston is having a disappointing season and Stills is on pace to have a statistically better season than his rookie season, but...

Report: NFL investigating Saints for stashing Todd Davis

Saints suffer heartbreaking overtime loss to 49ers 27-24

This was a cruel ending to a rollercoaster of emotions in a seesaw battle. Despite going down 14-0 early and looking completely out of it on their way to a 21-10 halftime deficit, the Saints put together an improbable comeback to take a 24-21 lead with under two minutes left. The defense seemed to have the kill shot in place with a 4th and 10 deep in 49er territory, but a 51 yard...

Colston Quiets Down In Week 8 After Great Day In Week 7

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston wasn't very active against Green Bay, catching four balls for 49 yards.Fantasy Spin:Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 7, but took a back seat to Brandin Cooks and even Kenny Stills in this one. As the young receivers grow, Colston's production is likely to be more and more inconsistent.

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Offensive Player Grades at Lions

23 points on the #1 defense in the NFL isn’t that bad. They moved the ball pretty well on a number of drives, too. Still, the offense had this game handed to them on a silver platter numerous times by the defense and they couldn’t close. In fact, they played a heavy hand in sabotaging everything late in the 4th quarter. The Saints finished with 73 yards on 21 carries (3.5 per...

It happened again. Not only did the Saints play well enough to win their Week 7 matchup against the Lions, they had them dead to rights.

Jimmy Graham to miss at least 2 games

The New Orleans Saints who are currently on a bye week, will be without their superstar tight end Jimmy Graham for at least 2 games following their bye. Graham was hurt in the Saints week 5 win against the Bucs and the Saints did not seem to be to concerned about the injury, making many to believe he would return in week 7. However Graham's sprained shoulder will force him to...

Fantasy Football: Which Owners Got Screwed in Week 1?

Contrary to popular belief, fantasy football is not a science. It can be dissected and experimented upon, but it cannot be predicted, nor can it be a pure form of enjoyment, largely due to repeated run-ins with agonizing playcalling and bizarre goal-line packages. Every week, fantasy owners throw their pitiful arms into the air as if the world revolves around them and their 15 member...

This time around, the performances actually mattered. It wasn’t about auditioning for a job. It wasn’t about fine-tuning and preparation. It was about posting results that would count, written in the record books and into the standings in pen. Some players and teams got off to a great start. Others, sputtered out of the gate.

New Orleans Saints lose to the Atlanta Falcons: Don’t freak out please!

Don’t blame Marques Coslton. Don’t blame Patrick Robinson. Don’t be that guy, or gal. Those two are easy targets for bashing. And no, their performances on Sunday were not great (or in Colston’s case, the fumble). But they were far from the only, or even primary, culprits. If you feel the need to blame, and sorry for sounding a bit self-righteous, but that is truly being...

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...
