Saints Nation’s Top 10 Plays of the 2014 Season: #5 Patrick Robinson’s Interception vs. Tampa

It was a miserable start to the season for Patrick Robinson, which included a demotion. But to his credit he continued to play hard and eventually turned his season around as a reserve cover man. This interception in particular was incredible and it came at a time in week 5 when the Saints the Saints had only forced a single turnover coming in and were desperately in need of a takeaway...

New Orleans Saints Four Downs: End of Season Review

First Down – A roller coaster-type seasonThe high point of the season came in a Week 8, 21-point win over the Green Bay Packers – now the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. Going into the game the New Orleans Saints were 2-4 and lost a last-minute road game the week before to the Detroit Lions. Losses to the Atlanta Falcons in overtime and Cleveland Browns to a last-second field...

Patrick Robinson Had the Best Catch of the Bears-Saints Monday Night Game

Typically, when it comes to figuring out who has the best catch of the night you look at one of the wide receivers or maybe a tight end. During Monday night's Bears-Saints game it would not have been shocking to see Matt Forte come up with the catch of the night (he has almost 90 after all).Instead the catch of the night belonged to a defensive back, Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson...

Saints vs Panthers will tell us who they are

Well we all totally saw that coming right? The Saints who are notoriously a vastly superior team at home versus on the road (who isn’t?) get shellacked at home and lose 3 straight, and then go on the road and give a pseudo-beatdown to the Pittsburg Stealers. Yup, totally saw it coming. Well that is as they say ‘why they play the games’. Who Dat Dish’s Barry Hirstius talked...

Saints' Robinson has rebounded from early demotion

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson is back in the starting role he was drafted to play, and looking a lot more comfortable this time. If he can perform the way he did at Pittsburgh last Sunday, he won't have to worry about another demotion for a while. ''My confidence is a lot better than it was the last couple years,'' Robinson said after Thursday's practice...

Saints Whip Packers 44-23

As the Falcons, Panthers and Bucs all lost today in last second fashion, the refrain of how bad the NFC South is was strong as ever. But the Saints wouldn’t be included in that mess today. The Saints are now 3-0 at home on the season and being back in the Dome seems to be the cure all. After trading points for a 16-16 tie at halftime, the Saints went on a tear in the second half...

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...

Twitter Tuesday: Fans rejoice after New Orleans Saints CB Patrick Robinson’s pick

Patrick Robinson has had a rough year. He was picked by the coaching staff to start over Champ Bailey in the offseason – leading to the Hall of Famer being released – only to be unceremoniously torched by the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. After getting the team’s first interception of the season against Tampa Bay on Sunday, fans took to Twitter to rejoice. Of course P-Rob makes...

Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Buccaneers

For a second there I thought the defense might hold a team out of the end zone for a second consecutive home game when the Bucs had 3 points with under 2 minutes left in the first half. Then Brees threw a bad pick, the Bucs scored a touchdown and the wheels came off. The second half saw a couple touchdown drives yielded which led us to believe they were back to the usual season implosion...

Saints Patrick Robinson making a resurgence?

Cornerback Patrick Robinson is showing some initial signs of promise that perhaps he can indeed turn his season around and live up to expectations, both his own and those of the New Orleans Saints. After enduring a painful demotion from the starting lineup earlier this season, Robinson got the chance to get back out on the field against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday due to injuries...

Ground game helps Saints to 37-31 OT win vs. Bucs

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that there can be much more to New Orleans' offense that the prolific, record-setting passing for which he is known. ''People get enamored with our passing statistics at times and they maybe just don't - aren't aware - or don't give our guys enough credit for their ability to rush the ball,'' Brees said. ''The...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Cowboys – Week 4

Looking at last weeks predictions… Robinson ran indeed for more yards than Peterson. Even Patrick Robinson ran for twice the number of yards. That call is void with Peterson not even playing. Saints did get a win. And looking by the way they got it, as ugly as it was, it does count as a valid call. Weak. But valid. Saints did not really implode on defense. It wasn’t  good...

Nick, although I’m pleased with the way the defense played against the Vikings – we’re headed to Dallas next week. That means a heavy dose of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant.

Saints Not Giving Up on CB Patrick Robinson, Despite His Struggles

Instead, Robinson was on the sidelines watching, replaced by Corey White, after struggling in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns.

Saints get first win over Vikings 20-9

To win 20-9 at home against an opponent this weak confirmed our fears more than it put them to rest, but a win is a win and the Saints now have something to build on. Without Adrian Peterson the Vikings rushed for 59 yards at 2.7 yards per carry, so his absence obviously made an immense difference. Offensively the Saints struggled to get much going after jumping to a quick two touchdown...

Five things to Look for in Vikings at Saints

The first home game of the season is upon us and this feels like a must win given the Saints’ 0-2 start. If they lose this game, a game they are the overwhelming favorite in, an 0-3 start pretty much kisses any chance at the playoffs goodbye in my mind. Rebounding from that would take more than a miracle. At 1-2, however, you’d feel the odds are still decent. So this is a big...
