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...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Ravens – Week 12

So far Brees has not had a turnover. Andrew Juge will have 2 more games to make good on this prediction. I was way off with my bold prediction since Hill and Green both each scored over 10 points. I wish I still was correct since I did not need them to win my FF I was not the only one who was way off. We all were, even for you commenting and adding your own. So far Juge is somewhat...

NO Saints Jimmy Graham On Drew Brees, Basketball, And “Do:More”

If you know anything about football, you know all too well that All-Pro TE Jimmy Graham is an absolute workhorse. He’s overcome numerous setbacks–both on the field and off–to become one of the NFL’s most dominant offensive players. But it wasn’t ever easy, and his aggressive attitude shows that hard work pays off. That’s why he’s teamed up with Degree to show...

New Orleans Saints fans will be steamed if these Week 12 bold predictions come true

Anyone can pick games. Whether selecting winners or making guesses against the spread, it’s essentially an exercise in flipping a coin. But providing some specifics about what’s going to happen in a game, detailing how things are going to play out, takes some thought, imagination and guts. And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

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 Nation Guru – Week 12 – Ravens

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.

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...

Tight end power rankings: Is Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints number one?

The NFL is becoming a passing league more and more every year and nowhere is that more apparent than at the tight end position.

Former basketball stars like Jimmy Graham...

Mailbag: What in the world happened to New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram

Nick, how can one player go from dominant to mediocre so quickly? Was this past weekend’s version of Mark Ingram the real him? – Kendall, Baton Rouge Kendall, as much as I’d like to say that the real Mark Ingram was the angry bull we saw the previous three weeks, I think his overall NFL stature is much closer to Sunday’s performance than any other.
