Five things to look for in Falcons at Saints

Well this is as big as it gets in terms of NFL regular season games. Depending on how things go with the Browns at Panthers game, the outcome of this game in New Orleans could either clinch the NFC South for the Saints or eliminate them from any possibility of the playoffs. This is not necessarily a playoff clinching win or a elimination loss, though. I know that’s redundant based...

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints: 2014 Week 16 NFL Pick

Atlanta Falcons (5-9) at New Orleans Saints (6-8) The Saints recently won 20 straight home games with Sean Payton and Drew Brees, covering in almost all of them (18-1-1 ATS), but they’ve since lost 4 straight games at home, all as favorites.

Where the New Orleans Saints’ Receivers Stack Up in the NFL

My evaluation of the New Orleans Saints position group starters continues this week, moving into offense with the wide receivers.  Even though he has since gone on injured reserve and Kenny Stills is now starting in his place, rookie Brandin Cooks still has seen more snaps (545 to Stills’ 543).  So for the purposes of this exercise Cooks will be counted as a starter for the first...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Falcons – Week 16

Ok, I was a bit negative last week. Saints are not weak, Saints are weird. The comment on borderline still stands. Andrew was so nice to “correct” that to bipolar in last weeks post, while in fact he is making a common mistake. Read this and know that bipolar is something that has to do with an illness while borderline has to do with a personality disorder. I think it is a personality...

Rainy Holiday Weekend brings chance for New Orleans Saints to end 2014 doldrums

If you’re in New Orleans for this almost holiday weekend, you know (or should know) that rain is in the forecast, and the skies will be overcast for the next few days. That seems appropriate given that Sunday’s NFC South tilt is essentially an elimination game. It’s just sad that a 6-8 team, AND a 5-9 team are both still theoretically alive for a division crown. The rain metaphor...

Darren Sharper charged with yet another heinous crime

(Credit: Business Insider)   Former NFL safety Darren Sharper is already facing a slew of charges in various states, most of them being rape. But it doesn’t end there. Sharper was recently indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiring to distribute drugs with the intent to rape. In layman’s terms, this means Sharper drugged women purposely to rape them.

Darren Sharper’s Accomplice: NFL Players Drugged Girls With “Horny Juice”

It appears that Darren Sharper’s accomplice Brandon Licciardi (who was a sheriff deputy by the way) is cooperating with the Feds.

Darren Sharper Indicted On Federal Drug Charges

Darren Sharper has been accused of raping multiple women in multiple states. If he doesn’t go to jail for those heinous crimes, he’s likely to go down for the drug charges against him via Deadspin. A federal grand jury also brought charges in district court against the former NFL safety last Friday. The federal charges aren’t for rape but instead focus on the drugs that Sharper...

Why the Saints pose a legit threat to any playoff team

Does the NFC South deserve to have a team in the playoffs?  I may be in the minority (Brady Quinn agrees with me http://www.footballbyfootball.com/column/nfc-south-is-rising-no-playoff-change-needed), but I believe it does.  Every team sets goals during training camp and one of those goals is to win the division. Therefore, a division title has to mean something.  It means you’ve...

Saints sign new kicker to practice squad, Shayne Graham on notice?

Hard to envision the newest practice squad member, kicker Dustin Hopkins, being much of a threat to Shayne Graham before the end of the season/playoffs. But it looks like he’ll be in 2015 training camp to give Graham some competition. And with Graham in a mini slump as of late, this kid seems like a threat.
