Five Things to Look for in Saints @ Colts (Preseason Edition)

The Saints are nationally televised for this heart stopper of a preseason game in Indianapolis today. I say “heartstopper”, mind you, not because of the excitement level but because it’s preseason and these games are flatlines with no pulse. In fact, I’m not certain these preseason games mustered a feint pulse to begin with. So […]

Talent less likely to make final 53?

So there are 10 instead of 8 spots on the practice squad as of this season. Does that mean anything when it comes to talent making the final 53? So let’s say it comes down to 2 players for a position. 1 is a vet and a solid player. The other is a rookie or […]

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Colts – Preseason W3

So last week’s bold predictions came true. As in they were bold. None of them were correct. Some were even so bold that called for actions by players that did not even see the field. That is pre-season for you. The real season will have some better calls I assure you. Neer was close with the […]

Podcast: Interview with Jason Cole on Jimmy Graham

Since some of the national media was in full freakout mode over Jimmy Graham’s penalties for dunking after touchdowns we were fortunate enough to have Jason Cole of Bleacher Report stop by to talk about it and what it might mean for Graham’s relationship with Sean Payton plus how it might impact the 2014 season. […]

Will the Saints’ fullback not be Erik Lorig in 2014?

Sean Payton dropped a nugget of information at his press conference today stating: Our preparation has to be with the idea that, as Erik is rehabbing, we’ve got to be ready to have a fullback Week 1, with the chance it’s not going to be Erik. That to means suggests pretty strongly that Erik Lorig […]

Saints’ Practice Squad will increase to 10 players this season

This news may not be much comfort initially to those that experience the disappointment of being left off the final 53 man roster, but two players currently on the Saints’ 90 man roster will remain with the team this year when otherwise they might not have. Granted that is a little presumptive because the Saints […]

Where the Saints roster stands with injuries and depth

That’s why yesterday had some terrific news if you’ve been paying attention to the team’s extensive injury list. Drew Brees, Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs all returned to practice […]

Saints spend second preseason game in ‘penalty box’.

The second preseason game once again saw the Saints missing a number of key veterans (Drew, Jairus, Prob, and Champ to name a few) due to injury. If this were the third game, I would be very worried right now as that is the only one that really matters, however it isn’t so I will […]

Saints survive 22 penalties to beat Titans 31-24

Sean Payton was really unhappy about 10 penalties last week, so that leaves one to wonder how he’ll feel about more than double this time around. That’s not including maybe as many as five or six others that were declined. Like any preseason game there was a mixture of some good stuff and some painful […]

Five Things to Look for in Titans @ Saints (Preseason Edition)

For the second straight Friday, the Saints are playing a game. That feels a bit weird, doesn’t it? The Saints will host their first game of the season, even if it doesn’t matter. I have to say this tweet in particular took me back to the Super Bowl win and gave me goosebumps:   The […]
