2015 will be a return to offensive dominance

Before you say “the Saints were the #1 ranked offense last year,” stop and ask yourself some honest questions. If the offense was as prolific as that ranking would suggest, would the team have lost its last five home games? Would the team have traded away star tight end Jimmy Graham for a star center? […]

Saints give up 38 unanswered in 38-10 loss to Packers

I have trouble remembering a more miserable second half of football. The Saints were annihilated by the Packers reserves in every facet of the game. A disaster performance that leaves you seriously questioning the effort put forth by some players. If you look that bad in the 4th quarter of the 4th preseason game with […]

Preseason Game #4: Five things to look for in Saints at Packers

The Saints are 0-3 in preseason and save a monster first half against the Patriots they have looked atrocious. They’ve also played their starters a limited amount of snaps. Don’t expect that to change against the Packers as we’ll see fringe players attempt to make the bottom end of the 53 man roster. Here’s 5 […]

Saints Nation’s final 53 man roster prediction

The Saints are down to 75 players which means they’ll need to make 22 more moves to get down to 53 after the Packers game tomorrow. Here are my predictions on the final 53 below: S Jairus Byrd will remain on PUP – which means he’ll be inactive for 6 weeks and won’t count as […]

Saints-Packers Matchup Features Young Players Fighting for Roster Spots

The New Orleans Saints play at Green Bay Thursday night, but they don’t have to worry about freezing temperatures, because it’s only September.

First cuts to get the Saints roster from 90 to 75

The names of the cuts are starting to come. First it was Jalen Saunders getting traded to the Patriots for a conditional draft pick. That probably means a low round pick if he makes the Patriots roster. That puts the Saints at 89 and I’ll keep a running list as info comes out on the […]

Thoughts on Saints 27-13 Loss to the Texans

The Saints are now 0-3 in the preseason and while that’s no reason to hit the panic button, it’s plenty reason for concern. This team looks pretty bad. I took my son to the game (his first) and I felt for him because the experience was pretty miserable in person. I had the opportunity to […]

Preseason Game #3: Five things to look for in Texans at Saints

The Saints will host their final preseason game today. By the time you’re reading this I’ll be on a morning flight from Las Vegas (friend reunion, fantasy football live draft party) to New Orleans in time to take my 5 year old son to his first Saints game ever. I really hope my flight isn’t […]


Why Willie Snead WILL be a Saint this year

It seems that every year there is some young talented UDFA brought in by the Saints during training camp that fans fall in love with. Most of them either fizzle out or never even make the team in the first place, but New Orleans might have the best track record in the league for finding […]

Saints Training Camp’s top 10 booms and busts

Every year Saints training camp comes with surprises, reassurances, disappointment and moments of terror. This one so far as been no exception. Below are my top 10 booms and busts so far with two weeks remaining in preseason: BUSTS: 10. Josh Hill It’s not that his camp has been awful but he was hurt for a […]

The New Orleans Saints play their third preseason game Sunday at 4 p.m. against the Houston Texans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints (0-2) are seeking their first preseason win.

Drew Brees poised for monster season rebounding from injury

I long wondered aloud how much the oblique injury affected Drew Brees over the course of the 2014 season. If you listen to our Saints Happy Hour Podcast you likely remember me mentioning that several times over the course of the season. We were all already aware that an oblique injury forced Brees to miss […]


Saints lose to Patriots 26-24

The game ended once again in a last second score by the opponent that led to another “heartbreaking” defeat, if there is such a thing in preseason, but Saints fans should walk away from this game feeling much better about the team’s prospects in 2015. The Saints led 21-0 and left 3 points on the […]
