Explaining the New Orleans Saints’ Salary Cap Situation

Well it’s been a rough couple of weeks hasn’t it, my fellow New Orleans Saints fans?  This season is a wash – between the team (and opinionated types like me) misevaluating what it had on the roster (and coaching staff?), impossible to foresee injuries, and just plain old Saints-brand Bad LuckTM, things are in a bad way in New Orleans.  They’ve lost back to back home games...

The New Orleans Saints season from hell continues

Let’s just be honest for a second. The Saints’ effort last Sunday against the Bengals was one of the worst, not only this season, but in recent memory. It was more embarrassing than the Dallas debacle in Week 5. It was more humiliating than the entire 2012 season (Okay, maybe not, but the point isn’t too whacky). Who Dey invaded the Who Dats’ land and ransacked it. Lost in...

Saints banged-up secondary bracing for Baltimore

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Either Saints coach Sean Payton doesn't want to tip Baltimore off as to who'll start in New Orleans' secondary on Monday night, or he really doesn't know yet. Both scenarios are possible in the wake of safety Rafael Bush's season-ending leg injury and top cornerback Keenan Lewis' ongoing recovery from a knee bruise. "We will look...

New Orleans Saints HC Sean Payton is safe, but these 10 coaches could be fired

If the NFL season ended right now, with most teams having played 10 games, the playoff match-ups would be interesting. Some of the usual suspects (New England and Denver) would be taking part, while some preseason contenders (Seattle and San Francisco) would be on the outside looking in. Some surprise teams (Detroit and Kansas City) would be playing, while others (Miami and Buffalo...

I think those are the odds for every coach in the league not named Belichick or Sean Payton.

Have The Good Times Gone For New Orleans?

"Laissez les bon temps Rouler!" The time-honored motto for the people of New Orleans translated means "Let the good times roll". But for the New Orleans Saints this season, those good times have been fleeting. Even in their once invulnerable safe haven of the Mercedes Benz Superdome, where the Saints have been a dominating force for years, in their last two appearances there, they...

Saints believe playoffs still within reach despite 4-6 record

Sunday's debacle inside the Superdome was an embarrassing episode for the New Orleans Saints, as they dropped their second home game in a row. However even at 4-6, the Saints are still talking about reaching the playoffs. Given the poor state of the NFC South, it's an achievable goal. "It's wide open," guard Jahri Evans said. "That's what we talked about today: there are six games...

New Orleans Saints are better than their record,have NFC South all but wrapped up

4-5. That’s the infamous record of the NFC South leading New Orleans Saints through nine games. The rest of the NFL looks upon the NFC South and laughs, mocking and deriding it like a well-known religious character who was said to have suffered the same fate some 2,000 years ago. Except in the case of the NFC South, much of it is justified. Tampa Bay is downright horrible. Atlanta...

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...

Saints Nation Guru – Week 10 – 49ers

So that was an awesome game. The real winners here, the defense who did not quit and found themselves. Although it helps if there is only 1 real WR on the opponents side and you have a Pro-Bowl CB on the roster. I would like to thank Deion Sanders for pointing that out in the post game show. That might have been the only thing not equivalent to verbal diarrhea coming from his mouth...
