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...

Luck not favorable to the New Orleans Saints in Week 2

So I started dating a girl about a month ago. Or at least that’s what I think we’ve been doing. We’ve gone on dates, talked on the phone and via texts. In modern day vernacular that is called “dating”. I bring that up for two primary reasons. First, I’ve told her a few times that I am the eternal optimist. In fact, I’ve told her—and other people—that “I am the...

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.

The New Orleans Saints Are 0-2 And Sean Payton Is Yelling At Rob Ryan

Nobody is happy after a loss. Nobody is happy after starting off the season 0-2. Nobody is happy losing to the Cleveland Browns. So, here is Sean Payton yelling at Rob Ryan two minutes before the Browns kicked their game-winning field goal. The Saints are 0-2 and it’s weird.

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...

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.
