Drew Brees poised for monster season rebounding from injury

I long wondered aloud how much the oblique injury affected Drew Brees over the course of the 2014 season.

We were all already aware that an oblique injury forced Brees to miss […]


Saints lose to Patriots 26-24

The game ended once again in a last second score by the opponent that led to another “heartbreaking” defeat, if there is such a thing in preseason, but Saints fans should walk away from this game feeling much better about the team’s prospects in 2015. The Saints led 21-0 and left 3 points on the […]

A few positives from the Saints and Patriots joint practices

As can be expected from really any part of training camp the Saints joint practice sessions with the Patriots had its highs and its lows. Fortunately there weren’t any significant injuries to starters (beyond what’s already occurred) so I think we can dub the practices a resounding success. I may be the resident Brady hater, […]

Saints lose 30-27 in Baltimore to open Preseason

There were few positives to take away from this first preseason game and the strongest sentiment that prevails is disappointment all around. Three things in particular were very poor: 1. Injuries.
