Saints’ Offensive Player Grades vs. Vikings

This was a disappointing performance by the offense. After jumping out to a quick 13-0 lead at home, it felt like this would be a vintage steamroll blowout type game. But the offense would stall from there with a series of miscues, drops, penalties, poor blocks, bad passes, and more. And it took a personal […]


Saints get first win over Vikings 20-9

To win 20-9 at home against an opponent this weak confirmed our fears more than it put them to rest, but a win is a win and the Saints now have something to build on. Without Adrian Peterson the Vikings rushed for 59 yards at 2.7 yards per carry, so his absence obviously made an […]


Five things to Look for in Vikings at Saints

The first home game of the season is upon us and this feels like a must win given the Saints’ 0-2 start. If they lose this game, a game they are the overwhelming favorite in, an 0-3 start pretty much kisses any chance at the playoffs goodbye in my mind. Rebounding from that would take […]


Minnesota gets a Viking funeral: Saints scouting report week 3

Tell me if you have heard this one before; the Saints are by far the better team here and should win this game by a landslide. That was the case week 1, was the case last week against Cleveland, and is the case this week against Minnesota. They key word there of course is should. […]


Saints Nation Guru – Week 3 – Vikings

Upset alert! JDup22 is going to take an early lead. We better have a good time throwing the ball because he has done it for 2 consecutive weeks. He has proven to be the Saints Nation Guru. The answers to last week were: No. The first drive was about the only time the Saints D […]

Saints tickets 10% below season average for Vikings game

The New Orleans Saints couldn’t get a home game at a much better time. After failing to silence the critics in regard to their inability to find success on the road, the Saints enter week three in search of their first win of the 2014 NFL season. That’s nothing a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings […]

Saints Payton Football

0 and 2… a beginning or an end?

0 and 2. Three little words that bring the taste of bile to one’s mouth, they make you nauseous, angry, sad, and most of all confused. This was (and is) a team that was celebrated as the most talented in franchise history, a team that was not only supposed to perform well… but to dominate. […]


Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Vikings – Week 3

Brian Pavek is the first one to have called a bold prediction correctly. But really, it wasn’t bold. It was sarcasm. So sorry Brian, that does not count. Indeed the Saints gave up less then 400 yards. It was 324 total. There are some more calls that are sarcasm this week. Try to spot them! […]


Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Browns

For the second consecutive week the Saints gave up a game winning field goal and this time it was even more on the defense. Yes the tackling and coverage was worse against Atlanta, but the degree of difficulty was so much lower against the Browns. For Brian Hoyer to be without Ben Tate, Josh Gordon […]

Super Bowl XLIV

There’s still hope even if you’re 0-2

The stat that’s been thrown out a lot the last few days is that out of the last 60 teams to start 0-2, only one has made the playoffs. That stat is terrifying and it suggests that if recent history is true the Saints have a 1.67% chance of making the playoffs. But this is the […]

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Browns

The Saints’ offense had about as horrific of a first half as I’ve seen them have in the Sean Payton era. Only an incredible score on a one on one fade jumpball by Jimmy Graham saved what would have otherwise been a 30 minute disaster. The score gave the Saints 10 points with mere seconds left […]


Saints lose 26-24 to the Browns

For the second straight game a field goal ended the game (there were 3 seconds left in regulation this time). The narrative has always been that the Saints are a different team on the road. I thought the playoff win in Philadelphia put that to rest but it’s hard to argue against that at this […]


Five Things to Look for in Saints at Browns

The best part of the game today is that once it starts we can start focusing on it as fans and at least momentarily leave behind the painful ending of week 1 in Atlanta. I’m not ready to call this game a “must win” but going 0-2 to start the season would be a big […]
