Positional review: Wide Receiver

If I were ranking these positions purely on talent and maximum potential, then the Saints Wide receivers might be at the very top for the team. There is more receiving talent on this team than at any point in the Brees/Payton era. However, there is also a lot of young and (as of yet) unproven talent that is still developing. Football is a game that requires a lot more than the raw...

Saints offense could face changes after season

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Four seasons after the Saints traded to get back into the first round of the draft to select Mark Ingram, the running back could be playing in his final game with New Orleans on Sunday. He's not the only one. With the Saints missing the playoffs for only the fourth time in nine seasons, New Orleans' offense could see a roster shakeup in the offseason. The Saints...

Five things to look for in Bengals at Saints

The Saints are in 1st place in the NFC South at 4-5, but by virtue of a Falcons-Panthers matchup this Sunday it is mathematically impossible for them to be in first with a loss this week. That means if the team wants to hang on to the NFC South lead, it’s going to need a win. This is because Atlanta currently owns a tiebreaker over the Saints, and the Panthers would own a higher...

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...

Where Has the Saints' High-Octane Offense Gone?

Inconsistency has plagued this team from the first snap of the first game. A unit that has been known for its ability to move up and down the field with relative ease just simply has not been able to do it this season, for whatever the reason. So many times they've started drives that looked oh, so promising, only to reach the red zone and wind up settling for a field goal opportunity...

Saints bye week: what we have learned part 1 of 2

We have reached the end of the bye week, and now like our team we need to focus not on the past, but on what can be done for the future. Still the key to progress is usually to look back and see how you got where you are; the Saints are a team that could (should?) be 4-1, has looked 1-4, and sits at 2-3. We came into the season with high expectations and the hopes of a second SB...

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...

Saints make Junior Galette a very rich man and bring back Robert Meachem

I step away from my computer and twitter for two hours and news blows up about the Saints. The first is that they will indeed carry 6 receivers on the roster after all. After signing Shayne Graham and releasing Ryan Griffin, the Saints designated rookie Khairi Fortt for IR with return and used the open roster spot to bring back Robert Meachem. That makes me wonder if Griffin and...

Pierre Warren’s release over Marcus Ball is a surprise and both kickers is a bit of a shock. This is the 53 man roster for now, but the Saints need a kicker, so expect at least one change...

Saints drop preseason finale 22-13 to Ravens

The Saints played very few key players, but that didn’t stop Robert Meachem, Champ Bailey and Parys Haralson from all getting banged up. As far as I could tell it doesn’t seem like it will jeopardize their ability to play in Atlanta, as Haralson and Meachem both returned, and Bailey seemed to dislocate a finger. Comically the Saints had one penalty in this game, it was by far...
