NFL: SEPT 13 Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints

Saints Re-Sign Robert Meachem

It took a little while but Robert Meachem is back with the Saints, as expected. He signed a one year deal, likely for the veteran’s minimum to compete for a spot on the 53 man roster this season. The Saints’ official twitter account broke the news:   The


Making the case for Mike Ditka as the “Worst Saint Ever”

We’ve reached the final four in our podcast bracket of the “worst Saint ever”. We started with a field of 64 and we’re now down to the final four. Surprisingly only one 1 seed made it out of their bracket alive, and that was Jason David who clawed his way to tiebreaking wins over Carl […]


A look at Draft prospects Lee, Roby, Fuller, and Mosley

It’s been long, it’s been wordy, and it’s not done just yet folks. I have a few more players I want to go over before I consider this bit wrapped up, and while not all of them are prospects that everyone will like, they are all players who the Saints could/should look at for the […]


Saints 2014 NFL Draft Board Version 3.0

This is the third draft big board I have done for the Saints and quite a few things have changed since the last one I completed just prior to free agency’s start over a month ago. Down the list are offensive tackles after the re-signing of Zach Strief and safeties after the Saints signed Jairus […]

Draft Board coming

I’m in the middle of a “Saints draft board” 3.0 version that I’ll be posting tomorrow of 50 rookie to be draft prospects. It’s amazing as you look up and down the roster how deep the team is becoming. After this draft the Saints may be a receiver and a center away from being two […]

Sean Payton, Drew Brees

Thoughts on Preseason Schedule

I’m two days late on this but the Saints’ preseason schedule was announced. Of course we don’t have dates yet, just weekly matchups. I’ll take this opportunity to reiterate how insufferable preseason is and that there should be 3 games at most, never 4. And honestly, I’d be fine with 2. There is some value […]


Do Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandin Cooks make sense for Saints?

As we all know Saints fans the draft is almost upon us, and as such, there a more and more mock drafts and opinion columns coming out of the woodwork by the second. With that in mind I am going to (hopefully) give you guys something a little different. I am not going to play […]

Saints match Falcons offer sheet and retain Rafael Bush

Picturing Rob Ryan in a room when Sean Payton breaks the news “the Falcons signed Rafael Bush to an offer sheet” is fun. “They did WHAT?!?!”. I picture him responding. “Give me ALL the safeties Sean. I want all of them. You better match that $%&*#$ offer sheet. You want a Super Bowl?” “Well obviously.” […]


With de la Puente bolting to Chicago, O-line needs help

When free agency began the consensus was that the Saints were likely to lose one of their two free agent starting offensive linemen. Most agreed that Zach Strief was the priority to retain, which happened, but the Saints will be going with a new starting center in 2014 as Brian de la Puente signed a […]


It may be now or never for Nick Toon

We’re now in year three of the “Nick Toon experiment” and this upcoming season really does feel like the fork in the road for the Saints’ receiver. After a 2012 season spent entirely on injured reserve, Toon didn’t fare much better last season. He turned in a 4 catches for 68 yards 2013, despite a […]


Saints have gone with a complete revamp of the safety position

We know Rob Ryan loves his safeties. I also know that I’ve been frustrated and disgusted with the Saints’ safety tandem for quite some time now. Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote this piece about the state of the safeties. I remember being THRILLED by the Vaccaro draft pick even though so many other Saints […]
