Guide to fan survival for a miserable 2016 Saints season

After watching that debacle on Monday night most of us are ready to write off the 2016 Saints. And once again, for the second straight year, we’re left hopeless with still more than 80% of the season left. This team has been good at finding new ways to mortally wound itself each week and that’s […]

New Orleans Saints defensive and special teams player grades vs. Falcons

When you consider the Saints were starting their 6th and 7th depth chart corners (going into training camp… except Sterling Moore wasn’t even on the team) and the fact that they were without Tyeler Davison, Dannell Ellerbe and Kenny Vaccaro… I guess in hindsight it was silly to expect much. The Falcons were the #1 […]

New Orleans Saints offensive player grades vs. Falcons

474 yards of offense and 32 points should be enough to win games at home. The offense wasn’t always awesome and the pick six by Brees was a back breaker – but overall the Saints played pretty well on this side of the ball. Credit the offensive line for playing pretty well considering they were […]

Five things to look for in Falcons at Saints

Gameday!!! This one is a must win. I really don’t care how the Saints do it, they can’t start the season 0-2. A loss here is a death blow to the season, I’m ready to come out and say it. A win, though, and the Saints are just a game back out of 1st place […]

It’s time to start respecting Mark Ingram

Let’s face it: Mark Ingram has never been “the guy” for Saints fans. From the moment Ingram arrived in New Orleans, Ingram has had an odd sort of pall that seems to follow him through each and every chapter of his NFL career.  One minute he looks all-world, the following week he gets the ball […]

How to stay positive as a fan

Yes, I know, I’m THAT guy again. But before you click away, throw your phone, or begin berating whatever screen you are viewing this on calling me some variety of idiot, first listen to what I have to say. First of all lets all be honest with ourselves here, the 2016 Saints are not very […]

Saints Nation Guru: Week 3 vs. Falcons

Great result! Not talking about the game but about your activity! Spread the word! An other heart-breaker of a game. Not so much that the Saints season is fubar, I already realized it was, though I was surprised they managed to defend that well. But the story of the 2016 Saints will be: They will […]

Blogging with the Enemy (Falcons Edition) with @CarasikS of @BloggingDirty

We all hate the Falcons. They’re pretty much the worst, ever. But Scott Carasik is a pretty awesome dude. It’s too bad he doesn’t have better taste in football teams. He does know his football stuff otherwise, though, so I went to him for thoughts going into Monday night. Many thanks to him for the […]

Saints Happy Hour Podcast: Why does God hate Saints cornerbacks?

The boys break down another heartbreaking loss, this time to the Giants. Is the defense’s performance sustainable? Will the Saints have to play hobos at corner? Was the offense only scoring 13 a fluke or are was Raiders game the lie? Special Teams, they suck HARD. Is Stephone Anthony still on the team? Will the Saints […]

New Orleans Saints Offensive Player Grades at New York Giants

Very odd what a difference a week makes. The Saints went on the road against the Giants and just couldn’t muster much offense against Steve Spagnuolo’s defense. The balance in particular was a serious issue. In a close game like that it was incredibly one dimensional to throw 46 times and run only 13 times. […]

Saints lose to Giants 16-13 but show grit in loss

Stop me if you have heard this one before, but the Saints lost their number 1 cornerback to an injury in this game. 2nd-year pro PJ Williams took a pair of shots to the head while making a tackle and laid on the field looking lifeless for far longer than any fan, player, or family […]

Can the Saints defense survive the loss of Delvin Breaux?

You need to look no further than the fourth quarter of Sunday’s heartbreaking loss against the Raiders to see how detrimental the loss of cornerback Delvin Breaux is. What looked like a much improved, confident group in the first half quickly reverted back to their old ways when their best cover man went down. The […]

Five things to look for in Saints at Giants

The good news is once this kickoff starts, we can rid our minds of the atrocity that is the ending of the Raiders game. The bad news? We’re exposing ourselves all over again as fans to heartbreak. I feel like this game is ripe for the Saints surprising us. We’ll expect the worst, the Saints […]

Saints Nation Guru: Week 2 at Giants

So that was not nice. I was surprised by the offense and also surprised by the defense. Offense and Defense both started as we knew them. Then the Saints were figured out and exposed for the entire world. So now it is a steep learning curve and next year they will be good. I hope. […]
