With Mark Ingram out, Khiry Robinson 'fired up' to show growth from rookie year to now

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram somehow managed to play an entire half with a broken bone in his hand last Sunday, then patiently fielded post-game questions in the locker room without betraying the slightest bit of pain. "I did not know (he was injured)," said teammate Pierre Thomas. "I don't know if he knew." There's a fine line in the...

Payton instilling 'crisis' mentality into Saints this week

This isn't where the New Orleans Saints expected to be in Week 3: preparing for their home opener by diagnosing what went so wrong on the road that they're now desperate to survive a 0-2 start. Players in the locker room are referring to this as the team's "Week of Crisis" – at least figuratively on the field, if not literally, given what teams like the...

Payton: With Ingram out, Saints other RBs ready

METAIRIE, La. (AP) New Orleans' running game has been the least of coach Sean Payton's worries during the Saints' first two games. The coach expects that to remain the case, even with his most productive rusher, Mark Ingram, sidelined by a broken hand. Payton said Ingram, who has averaged 6 yards per carry and scored three touchdowns, won't be able to play Sunday...

Mailbag: How do the New Orleans Saints turn this around?

Nick, are you as frustrated as we are? Look we realize it’s only two weeks into the season, but this is certainly not the way we had envisioned the start to the year going. How can the Saints turn this around? – Bewildered Ben & Betty, Basile Guys, I feel ya. It’s hard to be optimistic after being kicked in the gut in Week 1 against Atlanta, only to be disappointed once...

Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints: 2014 Week 3 NFL Pick

Minnesota Vikings (1-1) at New Orleans Saints (0-2) The Saints are 0-2, but I’m not too worried about them. If one of their offensive players had been able to tackle Tashaun Gipson on his eventual pick 6, there’s a very good chance they’d be 1-1 right now and heading home to face the Vikings as at least 12 point favorites. They weren’t able to do that and they lost as a result...

There’s still hope even if you’re 0-2

The stat that’s been thrown out a lot the last few days is that out of the last 60 teams to start 0-2, only one has made the playoffs. That stat is terrifying and it suggests that if recent history is true the Saints have a 1.67% chance of making the playoffs. But this is the Saints with Drew Brees as their quarterback and Sean Payton as their coach, so I think it’s pretty clear...

Payton harps on Saints' mental errors in 2 losses

METAIRIE, La. (AP) New Orleans safety Kenny Vaccaro shows no interest in defending the Saints' performances in their first two games by pointing out how close they came to winning. That fact that New Orleans led both games in the final 10 seconds of regulation, and lost each by a field goal or less, is of little solace. ''Honestly, a loss is a loss. I don't care...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Browns

The Saints’ offense had about as horrific of a first half as I’ve seen them have in the Sean Payton era. Only an incredible score on a one on one fade jumpball by Jimmy Graham saved what would have otherwise been a 30 minute disaster. The score gave the Saints 10 points with mere seconds left in the half. The second half saw more success, but one has to be left with major regrets...

Pitiful coaching drops New Orleans Saints to 0-2

The unthinkable happened. In the face of all the expectations, all the hype, and all the attention, the New Orleans Saints have fallen to 0-2 after an all-around pathetic showing against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns deserve credit for a good game plan and overall superior execution, but this was a game the Saints needed and should have had against a supposed inferior opponent...

Sean Payton Screams Rob Ryan (Video)

Rob Ryan better watch himself. The Saints are 0-2, and the defense has given up game winning drives two weeks in a row. Head coach Sean Payton had seen enough during the fourth quarter and let Ryan know about his displeasure in a loud manner.  Ryan, of course wasn’t going to go quietly, and shouted back. This is a relationship to watch.

Saints' Payton, Brees return to Cleveland where journey began

This Sunday's matchup between New Orleans and Cleveland will be more than just a get-right opportunity for the Saints after last weekend's defensive debacle in Atlanta. It's also a trip down memory lane: a return to where it all started for the current Sean Payton/Drew Brees regime.  In 2006, Payton made his regular-season head coaching debut at New Orleans' helm...
