Saints suffer inexplicable loss 24-23 to Lions

The Saints are now 2-4, somehow, and all we can chalk this up to is some sort of road voodoo. The Saints were up 23-10 and in complete control of this game until a comedy of errors and referee contribution helped the Lions pull off the improbable comeback. This loss hurts worse than the Falcons game and Browns game and it will leave a mark both literally and figuratively. Multiple...

New Orleans Saints shooting for a shootout Sunday

When the New Orleans Saints roll into Ford Field on Sunday afternoon (Noon CT) they’ll apparently be doing so with a revamped vehicle. Michigan’s own Mark Ingram is set to return to the lineup after missing the past three games with a broken hand. Ingram’s return is good news for a Saints offense which has been remarkably stale outside of the two overtime games the team has...

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...

5 Reasons why the New Orleans Saints will beat the Buccaneers

If the Saints don’t win this week, you’ll officially find me in full blown panic mode. That being said, it’s hard to believe this team drops a home game to the 1-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here’s why: 5.) The running game is still strong   Despite the woeful performance by the Saints as a whole against Dallas, they still managed to run the ball relatively effectively. The...

Saints embarrassed by Cowboys in Dallas 38-17

The Saints lost on the road again, but this time it wasn’t by a last second game winning field goal. Instead, they were completely outplayed in all phases as they lost 38-17. The score was 24-0 at halftime in favor of the Cowboys and the game was never in doubt. Many will wonder what has happened to the Saints and to me it’s pretty clear. This game is on everyone in the organization...

Saints Nation Guru – Week 4 – Cowboys

Boy am I glad JDup22 had the bonus question way off (by 41 yards) or this would have been the most lopsided guru victory very soon! He had 3 answers correct. The answers were: No, still no points given up on the first drive. Cadet ran the ball twice. The first TD was scored by Pierre Thomas and Cameron Jordan had the second Sack. Finally a multi sack game. The total yards that Robinson...

Grade Day: New Orleans Saints pass, but without flying colors

The Saints finally jumped into the win column on Sunday, earning a 20-9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at the Superdome. It wasn’t a world-beating performance – and it certainly won’t set our minds at ease for the coming weeks – but it got the job done. Drew Brees was efficient, completing 77-percent of his passes for just under 300 yards and two touchdowns, while also...

Mark Ingram Out a Month - Hand Injury

Mark Ingram was finally starting to look like an NFL running back, picking up 143 yards on 24 attempts, with 3 TDs over the New Orleans Saints first 2 games of the season.  Now, he will miss a month with a hand injury.  Obviously if you own Pierre Thomas in fantasy football, this puts a little smile on your face, but Thomas has 4 less carries than Khiry Robinson and 2 less rushing...

Five Things to Look for in Saints at Browns

The best part of the game today is that once it starts we can start focusing on it as fans and at least momentarily leave behind the painful ending of week 1 in Atlanta. I’m not ready to call this game a “must win” but going 0-2 to start the season would be a big hole to climb out of. This is certainly a winnable game for the Saints and it’s critical to play well if they...

New Orleans Saints Week 1 preview: Offense

The New Orleans Saints enter the Georgia Dome on Sunday afternoon with the highest of expectations. In 2014, it’s Super Bowl or bust for this Saints squad.
