Brady Poppinga: Packers’ Loss To Saints Not Mike McCarthy’s Best Day

The Green Bay Packers had a bad day at the office Sunday. The Packers fell to the New Orleans Saints 44-23 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints’ offense finally looked in sync after being up and down for most of the season, but Green Bay’s decision-making really opened the door for New Orleans’ convincing win. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was very aggressive early...

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick

New Orleans Saints (3-4) at Carolina Panthers (3-4-1) I’ve been high on the Saints this whole season, picking them to win the Super Bowl before the season and not really wavering from that a ton even as they got out to a 2-4 start. That 2-4 start was largely a result of starting the season with 4 of 6 on the road, a significant injury to Jimmy Graham (which he’s over now), a...

In short, Sean...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Saints coach Sean Payton has spent much of his team's erratic season trying to build his players up.

5 Reasons the Packers will beat the Saints (and 1 reason why they might not)

The New Orleans Saints are a not quite as good version of the Green Bay Packers. Both teams have elite quarterbacks, but Drew Brees isn’t quite as good as Aaron Rodgers. In 12 seasons as a starter, Brees has thrown double-digit interceptions 11 times and is well on his way to 10 or more picks this season, his 13th as a starter. Rodgers has thrown double-digit picks in just two...

An open letter to New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton

It’s hard to criticize Sean Payton.  He’s easily the most successful head coach in franchise history and has led this organization from the brink of literal disaster to a golden age of annual Super Bowl contention.  So I’m not really comfortable challenging what Payton has done as of late and putting the Saint’ shortcomings squarely on his shoulders, but it’s what’s...
