With things being slow, at least for now, I reached out to you and you were kind enough to set us up for some really good topics and discussion. Let’s dive right in:
After letting some time sink in post combine I’m ready to unveil my new and improved board. Looking back at my old board I think it was pretty good at the top but faded down the stretch. This one is better rounded with appropriate prospects down the list. I envision the board like this: once […]
I have been on a little bit of a personal crusade as of late to build hype for the Saints to draft Shaq Thompson, the versatile linebacker out of Washington. So as to re-establish my sanity I want to explain why I would not only be happy if the Saints got him… but I just […]
Humor me for a second. Let’s just say Marcus Mariotta, Jameis Winston, Kevin White and Amari Cooper all get taken before 13. That leaves 8 picks before we get to the Saints. Here are guys I’d be happy with: Dante Fowler, Jr., OLB, Florida Leonard Williams, DE, USC Danny Shelton, DT, Washington Randy Gregory, OLB, […]
The boys talk about Saints starting to get under the salary cap, Oscars, and your Twitter questions. AND THE THEY DO IT LIVE! It’s the off season, what else could you expect? Check Out Sports Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with Forecast Radio on BlogTalkRadio with Chronic Podcast on BlogTalkRadio
Sean Payton has already come out and clearly stated what the Saints must add to improve in 2015 in his live video with Pro Football Talk. So the top three “musts” listed should be obvious. But I liked Payton’s categorizations of how they attack the offseason with “musts”, “needs” and “wants”. I thought I’d take a stab […]
As you watch the combine, I thought I’d give you the 10 players most likely to be selected by the Saints at 13 right now, along with a write up. I firmly believe one of these ten guys will end up being in black and gold come mini camps. Here’s who we should all be […]
Irritating, frustrating, maddening, bothersome and every other synonym for the word annoying can be used to described the 2014 New Orleans Saints season. The team’s rhythm never came into fruition but with the way the rest of the NFC South was performing, the playoff door was always cracked open. The fans believed the Saints had […]
The Saints have managed to make at least one notable signing in each of the last couple of years despite being in a constant state of ‘salary cap hell’. Cap maestro Mickey Loomis always seems to find a way to create just enough room to bring in a few new quality players while also retaining […]
Thanks for all of you that participated in the Twitter/Facebook questions. I’ve included the answers below. I look forward to doing it again.
There’s a very cool and dangerous tool out there right now to help you pass time when bored called the Fanspeak On the Clock Mock NFL Draft Simulator. I could spend all day doing this and clearly the Saints shouldn’t be using my advice on drafting because of my propensity to take LSU players. Or […]
The boys discuss Saints resigning Shayne Graham, assemble the worst fantasy team built of only Saints players, Mardi Gras king cakes, and your Twitter questions. PS: Donate and the audio quality stays awesome and don’t forget to download our Iphone app!Itunes.
The NFL combine starts tomorrow and we’ll start to get a good look at some of these prospects. There’s undoubtedly some of you that will sit through the boring and mind numbing exercise of watching each shuttle run, lift, and evaluation. Does any of that stuff really matter? Sure, a little bit. I think the […]
While there seem to be a lot of ‘holes’ on the Saints team right now I honestly think they need somewhere between 3-5 solid new additions in the offseason to really be able to make some noise next year. To me, the real question isn’t how many players they need, it’s what players (and positions) […]
In an effort to stick with nautical references, clearly the ship has steered significantly off course. The ship is of course the Saints defense, led by defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. I don’t think any of us saw this coming. How could an offseason that saw aging players that barely contributed leave in tandem with the […]
