Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades at Lions

Without a doubt this was the best half of football the defense has played all year. In the second half, well, they did their part to help the team go down in flames as the Saints blew a gimme of a win. The Saints were very effective against the run and look no further than […]

Offensive Player Grades at Lions

23 points on the #1 defense in the NFL isn’t that bad. They moved the ball pretty well on a number of drives, too. Still, the offense had this game handed to them on a silver platter numerous times by the defense and they couldn’t close. In fact, they played a heavy hand in sabotaging […]

Saints suffer inexplicable loss 24-23 to Lions

The Saints are now 2-4, somehow, and all we can chalk this up to is some sort of road voodoo. The Saints were up 23-10 and in complete control of this game until a comedy of errors and referee contribution helped the Lions pull off the improbable comeback. This loss hurts worse than the Falcons game […]

Five Things to Look for in Saints @ Lions

The bye week was fun and all but I’ve been desperate for some Saints football. I will admit that sitting on an overtime walk off win for two weeks has been much easier to tolerate than some bye weeks in the past. In just a handful of hours the Saints will be back to their season […]

New Users Guide: Brandin Cooks

I have spent so much time railing against the way Brandin Cooks has been used the last few weeks that I thought it was only right that I put down what I know about him and his skillset. Let’s be clear on something though; I am in no way saying I have a better understanding […]

A look ahead on the Saints schedule

The New Orleans Saints got off to a shaky start in 2014, losing their first two games before patching things up and settling on a 2-3 mark going into a week six bye. Their struggles have continued on the road, while Rob Ryan’s solid defense of 2013 has turned mostly to mush in 2014. While […]

After the bye part two: how we can fix our issues

After five games the flaws in this team are pretty apparent; the defense is awful, the o-line can’t pass protect, the receivers can’t get open or can’t catch, and our coach needs to go full on Benjamin Button Stat! Is all lost at this point? Nope. We play in a disaster of a division and […]

Reggie Bush vs. Saints

In light of the Saints up against Reggie Bush as an opponent for the first time, here is a cool montage of some highlights he had during his time in the Black and Gold. While he had his limitations and weaknesses, there’s no question he was an explosive playmaker during his time in NOLA.

Saints blueprint for success on the road

The Saints are 0-3 on the road this year and have done nothing to quiet the narrative that they can’t get a win away from the Superdome. That narrative was loud and clear last year for much of the season but my hopes were it would die with that incredible playoff win in Philadelphia. Instead, […]
