Top 10 All Decade Saints Teams – 1960s

The offseason means top 10 lists. A blogger has to milk whatever topics come to mind this time of year. And frankly, at this stage of the year, I’d much rather reminisce about guys that played well for the Saints than talk about a Junior Galette-esque fiasco or some random injury. So this new series […]

Five “camp bodies” with a good shot of making the 53 man roster

Whether it’s Kasim Edebali, Isa Abdul-Quddus, Brian Dixon, Willie Snead or Bobby Richardson – there always seems to be a couple guys every year that make the 53 man roster and become contributors. And it’s often times not someone we expect. Some of us saw Snead and/or Richardson happening, yes, but Edebali, Abdul-Quddus and Dixon […]

Saints sign WR Vincent Brown

It’s never too late to get involved in free agency, apparently. The Saints are thin at receiver so they added a veteran to the mix in Vincent Brown. This much we expected:

3 players who must step up for the Saints to win in 2016

Ideally a team would like all of its players to improve each year, even first ballot hall of famers like Drew Brees, but back here in reality we’re going to look at 5 players who both need to step up and can. To me a player ‘stepping up’ isn’t just about putting up better numbers, but […]

The Saints have a new kicker battle: Kai Forbath or Connor Barth?

The release of Josh Scobee took us all by surprise as the recently injured but former star kicker never even had a shot in training camp or preseason. Now, we know why. The Saints signed Connor Barth after hosting him at rookie mini camp. Barth became available despite a pretty good season in 2015 because […]

Where does the Saints roster stand, post 2016 draft?

Now that the draft is over I’ve been meaning to run through the position groups and give my thoughts on where things stand. Where the Saints are deep and where they are vulnerable. I’m really trying to assess the strength/weaknesses of every position group. Thoughts welcome. Quarterbacks With Griffin Neal waived yesterday the Saints are […]

Many thanks to their writer “boomtho” for taking the time to answer some of these questions below. Here’s what they had to say about the Saints rookie: The Saints Nation: Not going to […]

Ex Saints still looking for jobs in 2016

When you look at the Saints roster you get the feeling it is close to complete but they could still round out some of their needs with some post draft pick ups. When the Saints start seeing some of these guys practice, too, they’ll get a better feel for whether or not they need to […]

Is Dennis Allen Set Up for Failure?

The Saints have long attempted to fortify their defense with inconsistent results. Gregg Williams was able to stabilize the defense for 3 seasons until finally imploding under his own aggressiveness. Steve Spagnuolo was an abject failure who’s overly complicated scheme was poison to a team already dealing with a ton of off field distractions. Rob […]

How much do the Saints value Guards, and what it means for 2016

The following article is entirely the fault of two men, so if you find it irrelevent, insane, or totally off base… blame Andrew Juge and Nick Underhill. The following tweet started it all, and it got me to thinking about not only the matter at hand (the Saints guard position), but the potential for the […]

As you’ll see, their comments are super insightful. Many thanks to Joe Dexter and his staff at Buckeye […]

Grading the Saints off-season part 2 of 2

As I covered in part 1 the Saints like most teams tried to use the off-season to fill the holes on their roster, re-sign their own players, and acquire good football players in the draft. I gave them a B- for the first part of the off-season because I thought they did about as well […]

Grading the Saints off-season part 1 of 2

The off-season is always an interesting time for any football team. Anywhere from the lowly Browns to the defending Super Bowl champs (whoever it may be that year) has an opportunity to get better, stay stagnant, or get worse if they are unable to keep key players. The New Orleans Saints are certainly no exception […]
