Saints receiver battle standing out, with Nick Toon out in front

If you asked most that pay close attention to Saints training camp who the MVP was at this point, after about a week in, I think the majority would say Nick Toon. The corner he’s turned and the consistency with which he’s making plays out there is impressive. His biggest play today was a 40 […]


Pierre Warren turning some heads at Saints training camp

Rob Ryan loves his safeties. And when you think about the rotation, the players you’ll see on the field exclusively are Kenny Vaccaro, Jairus Byrd and Rafael Bush in no specific order. Beyond that, barring injury, you won’t see anyone else on the field when the games matter. Corey White is another possibility in certain […]


Jairus Byrd activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list

The big piece of news this morning at practice was the return of Jairus Byrd, who came off of the “PUP” list. Byrd underwent back surgery recently and was listed as “day to day”, but while the procedure was described as “minor” it’s always a bit unsettling to hear the words back and surgery together. […]


5 Bold Predictions for the Upcoming Season

Today I’m going to go over some bold predictions I have for the Saints for the 2014 season. These are in no particular order.  That being said, let’s get to it. 1. Khiry Robinson will emerge as the #1 back: Nobody doubts this dude’s talent or will to work hard. We all saw it at […]


Position battles at Center, Quarterback, Wide Receiver and Kicker developing

Putting four specific positions is admittedly a little silly when clearly all positions have their own little battles, but nonetheless there’s four battles that really emerged as most intriguing to me through the first week of training camp. That doesn’t mean things could shake up at other positions very soon to turn the attention elsewhere, […]


2014 Saints Predictions from @neershah9

Training camp has finally begun, and with it comes the anticipation of the regular season’s long-awaited arrival. Hope and expectations have been building in NOLA, across the country and around the world. But when many teams are in Super Bowl or bust mode, disappointment surely follows for some. With that in mind, here are some […]


The Saints finally get to start on the road to AZ

It’s a strange feeling to finally have the season starting. Today the Saints finally get to don the Black & Gold and take the field for the first time as a team in the 2014 season (I don’t count OTA’s). There are a lot of expectations and most if not all of them are entirely […]


The three biggest things to accomplish going through camp for the Saints

With camp starting today I started thinking about what this team really wants to accomplish as they get ready for week 1 of the regular season. They want to avoid injuries, of course, but some of those will come. It’s the nature of football. Beyond that I see three clear areas where the focus needs […]


Saints sign NT Tyrone Ezell and LB Marcus Thompson

The Saints made a couple of roster moves to their 90 man team yesterday as they prepare for camp, which starts tomorrow. The new additions are nose tackle Tyrone Ezell and linebacker Marcus Thompson, and they released NT Moses McCray and LB Cheta Ozougwu. All four players are undrafted rookie free agents, so the odds […]


Which position can the Saints least afford an injury besides quarterback?

Maybe it’s the cynic in me but every time training camp starts I immediately worry about the starters that won’t make it through and healthy coming into week 1 of the regular season. Kenyon Coleman, Will Smith, Victor Butler and Joseph Morgan were a few that had things end for them in 2013 before they […]

Thoughts on the Jimmy Graham signing

I know it’s late but here are my thoughts on the Jimmy Graham signing. I’m not going to go back on what I said due to the excitement because he’s back. Yes, I know I’m on record as saying the Saints should trade him and I stand by that. I think the return on a […]


Saints now have just under $5 million in cap space for 2014

After the Jimmy Graham contract the Saints’ cap room stands are just under $5 million in space. That’s because while Graham’s deal is for $13 million in year one, a lot of that is bonus money which prorates over the life of the deal against the cap. So Graham’s cap figure is $4 million for […]


Top 101 All Time Saints Players, 1-9

Our final segment on the top 101 Saints players of all time finally comes to a close and most of these last ones should be of no surprise. Thanks for reading along, this has been a really fun feature for me to revisit some of the greats in team history. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed it as […]


Who are the top 10 most overrated players in the league today?

To be clear this is my list of the players who I believe are the most overrated in the game today. The criteria for being overrated to me is not reliant on the player being poor, simply to not live up to the billing given to them. There are a lot of players in the […]
