Saints Announce Practice Squad

We still don’t know who the Saints’ kicker will be, though it doesn’t appear like it will be Ryan Succop. What we do know is the Saints have added seven players to their practice squad (edit: the last three names has since been added). Here’s who was added: NT Lawrence Virgil WR Brandon Coleman WR Seantavius […]


Predictions for the 2014 season

The rehearsals are finished, the players are selected, the stage is set… now let the games begin. We are one week away from the first game of what promises to be one of the all time great seasons in New Orleans Saints history, and what a better way to start things off than with Falcons […]


Saints announce provisional 53 man roster

The Saints announced their 53 man roster and there were some big surprises. Champ Bailey getting cut is right up at the top, and Robert Meachem is another big name that did not make the team. Pierre Warren’s release over Marcus Ball is a surprise and both kickers is a bit of a shock. This is […]

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints

Saints Nation’s final 53 man roster prediction

The Saints will need to waive (or place on IR) a total 22 players by Saturday, or more if they pick up players that were cut from other teams. My cuts and 53 man roster are below. I’ll throw one caveat, though. I think the Saints will sign an offensive tackle if someone they like […]


Saints drop preseason finale 22-13 to Ravens

The Saints played very few key players, but that didn’t stop Robert Meachem, Champ Bailey and Parys Haralson from all getting banged up. As far as I could tell it doesn’t seem like it will jeopardize their ability to play in Atlanta, as Haralson and Meachem both returned, and Bailey seemed to dislocate a finger. […]


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

The preseason is mercifully coming to a close as we focus in on the final game against the Ravens before the regular season opener in Atlanta. I will be in attendance at this game tonight, though I’m not expecting much. The starters will be sitting almost across the board and the roster is set with […]


Saints Nation bold predictions – Ravens – Preseason W4

Yes folks we did it again. 2 of us mentioned Bold predictions having to do with Cooks who didn’t even see a single snap. That is the second week in a row I predict something on a guy who does not play. I guess by this rate I am going to have to predict a […]


Saints Nation ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I was nominated to do this and so despite my general distaste for this kind of thing, the cause was too important for me to pass this up. So below is my ice bucket challenge video that was done with the help of my son Cullen. I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage to […]


Saints pare down to 75 players on the roster

The Saints roster was already down to 86 after they had unloaded four players in RB Tim Flanders, WR Tobais Palmer, TE Je’Ron Hamm and LB Chidera Uzo-Diribe  prior to the third preseason game in Indianapolis. That left 11 more necessary roster moves to get down to the league mandated 75 limit. The biggest surprise […]

Impressions from Saints’ third preseason game

Congrats to WhoDat Nation, the preseason is now officially over. What? You think there is another game? Don’t be ridiculous; there are only three preseason games, and then an open tryout for the last five spots on the roster. I am saying that somewhat in jest, because the final preseason game is still very important […]


Saints beat Colts 23-17 behind an excellent first half performance

The Saints are now 3-0 in preseason despite a third straight double digit penalty performance. This time it was 10 penalties (compared to 3 for the Colts!) but overall the team played well. At halftime it was 20-10 Saints and the 1st stringers utterly dominated the Colts. You may say Andrew Luck is the next […]


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 […]
