Snubbed? No New Orleans Saints RB named top-30 in the NFL

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 running backs in the NFL today, there were plenty of people angry about their favorite team’s workhorse not making the list. It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. The second batch of RBs, Nos. 11-20, generated a similar response. The next logical step in the ranking of the game’s running backs...

Camp Summary: Wide receivers shine for the New Orleans Saints

Thursday saw the wide receivers take over team drills, with guys like Brandin Cooks, Nick Toon, and Marques Colston (of course) looking very sharp. Cooks has been the talk of the camp so far, and if you’ve read any of our other Camp Summaries you know he’s been one of the guys we’ve been most impressed with. He’s showing the burst and quickness necessary to separate from...

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton pranks Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees got a surprise when he arrived at his locker this morning for training camp. His red jersey had undergone a slight transformation: What's wrong with this picture?! Sean Payton got me this morning. #Payback pic.twitter.com/vvcnqLnj1I — Drew Brees (@drewbrees) July 31, 2014 I’m just guessing here, but I think that one is a little too...

New Orleans Saints: Safety trio can be special

Recently, New Orleans Saints’ prized free agent Jairus Byrd said that he and Kenny Vaccaro as a safety duo “stand right at the top.” Saying they are number one is difficult to claim with the Seattle Seahawks still around, but as far as tandems east of Seattle he may have a strong case. Regardless, Vaccaro and Byrd, along with Rafael Bush are a nice set to have. With the addition...

Do the New Orleans Saints have any of the most underrated players in the NFL?

Last week, I provided my annual list of the 10 most overrated players in the NFL. As expected, it caused an uproar, mostly from people who can’t take off their team-colored glasses and deal with the truth. For a good time, read the “Comments” section below the article; it’s pure gold and classic examples of denial. In the spirit of showing that it’s not all negative on...

New Orleans Saints undrafted free agent standouts

It’s a great time of the year for those of us that follow the NFL offseason.  Teams are finally having padded, full-contact practices that can make some players stand out and others fall by the wayside.  Every team has to carry a roster of 53 active players and at most 8 practice squad players before opening day in September.  Competition is fierce to earn one of those roster...

Drew Brees Goes Skeet Shooting With a Football (Video)

No wonder Drew Brees thinks he can keep playing until he’s 45-years-old. When you possess not only a rifle arm, but this kind of accuracy to boot, sticking around the NFL well into your mid 40s doesn’t seem all that crazy. Then again, I’m sure at least half the QBs in the league can skeet shoot a frisbee with a football, but that shouldn’t take away from Brees’ impressive...

Do the Saints have the NFL’s best safety tandem in the making?

If one were asked to name the best starting safety tandem in the NFL right now, the most likely answer you’d expect to hear would be Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks. Not only did the Seahawks win the Super Bowl behind what can only be described as the best defense we’ve seen in at least the last decade, a big part of that defense’s success was the play...

Camp Summary: New Orleans Saints players take the day off, we re-live a few fun moments

Saints players received a much-needed off day on Wednesday, and while the guys rested we took a look at a few of the noteworthy moments we missed. First off, Drew Brees created a buzz when saying he plans on playing another 10 more years in the NFL. That would make him a 45-year-old quarterback, out living the NFL lives of Doug Flutie, Mark Brunnell, and Warren Moon. Brees says he’s...

Drew Brees hits a frisbee with a football (Video)

The main reason Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL despite being barely 6-feet tall is that he is incredibly accurate. Brees throws the ball downfield as well as anyone in the game, and he apparently polishes that skill by pegging frisbees out of mid-air. While we have no way of […]

This season the New Orleans Saints are looking to strike a better offensive balance between their aerial assault and their rushing attack.  Head coach Sean Payton and offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Jr would like to return to statistics like the Saints posted during their 2009 Super Bowl season when the established run game amassed 2,106 rushing yards.

Pierre Warren turning some heads at Saints training camp

Rob Ryan loves his safeties. And when you think about the rotation, the players you’ll see on the field exclusively are Kenny Vaccaro, Jairus Byrd and Rafael Bush in no specific order. Beyond that, barring injury, you won’t see anyone else on the field when the games matter. Corey White is another possibility in certain formations, though, as he’s gotten some camp reps as the...

Camp Watch: Drew Brees in skeet shooting QB competition (video)

To say Drew Brees is surgical on the field is an understatement. Watching him do what he does best on the field is usually a treat. Apparently, so is watching him do practice drills as part of a quarterback competition. Here is the video that the Saints vine account posted on Tuesday that I’ve watched about 40 times since then. Luke McCown actually ended up being the winner...

When the Saints were in the playoffs last year, I wrote an article about music that should be on a Saints playlist for Canal Street Chronicles based upon the tracks I had on my Spotify playlist.
