2014 Saints take their ‘last ride’ against Tampa

That game was the only possible way the 2014 season could end. The Saints were out of sync, underperformed, hurt, and simply not themselves. At least, they weren’t the team we are used to seeing. This is however the Saints team that has existed since the loss to the Niners; with the exception of the game against Pittsburgh the Saints have been a hollow and broken shell of their...

His future with the Bucs remains uncertain.  Head coach Lovie Smith talked about holding Foster out of practice all week followed by Sunday’s injury report and game status: “Mason Foster did not practice again, but it’s not like he pulled his Achilles...

Saints Hold As Favorite Over Bears On ‘Monday Night Football’

The Chicago Bears will play host to the New Orleans Saints on “Monday Night Football” to wrap up Week 15 of the NFL season. The Saints opened as a field goal favorite, and the line has stayed pretty steady at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Neither team is doing much of anything at this point in the season. New Orleans is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) New Orleans left tackle Terron Armstead and pass-rushing outside linebacker Junior Galette have been hurt during the first half of the Saints' game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

WATCH: Ravens DL Chris Canty Gives Saints OL Terron Armstead One for Flinching

There is one thing that every offensive line coach at every level of the game tells his guys. If you are going to jump you might as well go all out and hit someone. Why not since you are going to get penalized anyhow, right? It's also to make sure the defender doesn't unleash on you because he can since you moved first.Just like Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty did...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Falcons

The offense put up 34 points and were effective both running and passing. That should be sufficient for a win, and yet the unit will live with the regret of a couple miscues that left some points out there. And while it’s hard to blame the offense for the loss, the Colston fumble was the final dagger. Still, the Saints on this side of the ball seem in sync and primed to put up...

Pregame Look at the Saints Heading into Atlanta

The time has come. For the Saints, it has got to be about respect. After nearly four decades of being the laughing stock of the league, along came Head Coach Sean Payton. And with him came the hard-earned respect that comes with winning.On Sunday, they begin the season as the odds-on favorites to win the division. And it all starts against their biggest, and possibly most hated rival...

2014 Saints Predictions from @neershah9

Training camp has finally begun, and with it comes the anticipation of the regular season’s long-awaited arrival. Hope and expectations have been building in NOLA, across the country and around the world. But when many teams are in Super Bowl or bust mode, disappointment surely follows for some. With that in mind, here are some predictions I believe will play out this year: -...

Five New Orleans Saints Players To Watch During Training Camp

Training camp can be a crucial time in a player's career. For a veteran, it can be a time to solidify their position as a starter. But for other players, it can be a time to make a move into the starting lineup and become key contributors to the success of the team.For the New Orleans Saints, I've selected these five offensive players as most likely to make their move this training...

New Orleans Saints 2014 Preseason Analysis: Offensive Linemen

One thing that even the most casual of Saints fans could all agree on in terms of successes/failures over the course of last season is that the weakest link was without a doubt the offensive line. That translated into QB Drew Brees not only being sacked, but being hit far too often. But even worse than that was a largely ineffective ground game. I mean, think about it-how many times...

Five Saints players with the biggest question marks surrounding them going into camp

Going into camp we already have a good feel for the Saints’ roster and the role most players will have. This is a mature team with an established track record and along with that comes proven commodity players that are known entities. The identity of the team is largely formed from a tenured coaching staff and talent, and so they’re just building on top of the foundation that’s...

Five biggest questions going into Saints Training Camp

With OTAs now wrapped up the Saints have some time off before diving back into the season full bore. The Saints will report to the Greenbrier in West Virginia on July 24th to start training camp, which means the players have a little over a month off. This is known as a pretty dead period in terms of news unless the players are doing something stupid. So basically no news is good...

New Orleans Saints: 5 Pressing Questions Going Into Training Camp

The New Orleans Saints are viewed by many as a sure fire contender to win Super Bowl XLIX.

However, no team is perfect, and just as 31 other teams, the New Orleans Saints have legitimate questions going into training camp.1. What will happen...

On the other hand, if they falter, some may fall into the deeper depths of the roster and potentially not make the final team. Josh Hill The Jimmy Graham saga...

Saints Draft Predictions from @_andrewdoyle_

I would have loved to see the Saints get Mathieu as well as Armstead and they were only a couple picks off from potentially landing...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Offensive Line

The offensive line in 2013 was a complete mess until late in the season. Then something weird happened. The Saints made the move to have Terron Armstead replace Charles Brown at left tackle, the team started to run the ball not only more but more effectively, and that unit ended the year on a real high note. By the end of the playoffs the line almost felt like a strength on the team...

Five Things to Look at in Saints at Seahawks - PLAYOFF EDITION!

Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!?!?! I started my last pregame road playoff game the exact same way as above, and we all know how that worked out in Philadelphia, so consider this both for amusement and a little voodoo to affect the outcome. The Saints are back in Seattle just a month after the 34-7 drubbing they took on the chin. But that was then, and this is the playoffs. Win or...

Battle In Seattle: Will The Saints Get Their Revenge?

Both New Orleans and Seattle are dreaming about playing in the big game next month, but all of their focus is set on Saturday. Back in week 13, the Seahawks dominated the Saints in almost every aspect of the game, and if you're a fan of the Black and Gold, it was pretty tough to watch. This time around may be a little different. The running game is stronger, the offensive line seems...

Reasons for Saints to have Optimism Against the Eagles

There's no denying the Saints' struggles on the road this year. Going a perfect 8-0 at home and an underwhelming 3-5 on the road, the Saints can blame their low seeding on any of their road losses this year that should have been a victory (with the exception of Seattle, since they're the only clearly superior team that the Saints have played).Regardless, the media will reiterate...

Why can't the offense be like 80% this good on the road? This was a vintage performance by the Saints offense at home as they put up 42 on the 13th best defense in the NFL.This despite the customary mediocre job on the ground. No matter, the Saints were so explosive in the passing game they left the Bucs no chance in this game. Would love to see them play like this in the playoffs...

Well, it won't be a division title and it won't be a first round bye, so the Saints will have to settle for access to the playoffs by way of the wild card and final 6th seed. Give them credit, though, they took care of business today at home and earned it, ending the season with a pretty solid 11-5 record. Most impressively they annihilated a team they had trouble with on the road...
