Saints Nation: Adrian Arrington Promoted to Active Roster

With Courtney Roby recently placed on injured reserve due to his concussion, Adrian Arrington has been promoted to the active roster. While the replacement for a special teamer is a receiver, most notable for the Arrington promotion is the knee scope that Marques Colston has received this week. Sean Payton has said there’s a “chance” […]

Saints Nation: Jammal Brown Trade Yields a 3rd Round Pick

I’m incredibly late to the party reporting this, but since there’s been so little news on this, I figured I would bring it to light. Evidently this news, while noteworthy, got lost in the shuffle of the season and upcoming playoffs. Most of you remember that former Pro Bowl left tackle Jammal Brown was traded […]

Saints Nation: Heath Evans and Jahri Evans Named to Bloguin NFL All-Pro Team

The Bloguin 2010 NFL All-Pro Team has been announced, naming the top player at each position, and two Saints players have been elected to the team. Heath Evans was elected as the fullback and Jahri Evans as an offensive guard. The team features Tom Brady at quarterback, Arian Foster at halfback, and many other top […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Falcons

This was an amazing performance by the defense. To go into Atlanta and hold the Falcons to 7 points (remember that 7 of the team’s 14 points came off a pick 6) was in my opinion the biggest feat of the season. While the usual suspects made plays, it was the Marvin Mitchells, Jeff Charlestons, and Jo-Lonn Dunbars that […]

Saints Nation: Saints Send 3 to Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl squads just got announced and three Saints have received invitations, all three coming from the offensive side of the ball. They are Drew Brees, Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks. Congratulations to all three players on an outstanding season and well deserved recognition. The biggest snub of the team, in my opinion, was […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Falcons

Forgetting for a second that this was arguably the offense’s worst performance of the season, which came in a game with the highest stakes, it’s important to note that they were able to put together the most important drive of the season when it counted. As bad as Brees had been to that point, he […]

Saints Nation: 5 Questions with Dirty Bird South

I had a chance to catch up with Rob Kelley of Dirty Bird South, the reputed top notch Atlanta Falcon Blog on the Bloguin Network, and he was kind enough to take the time to give me his take on a few topics leading up to the game tomorrow night. Many thanks to Rob, and […]

Saints Nation: Merry Christmas From Saints Nation!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and thank all of you that spend the time to read, comment on or enjoy my Saints blog. Hopefully you get as much out of it as I do. I appreciate your support and I hope you all have a wonderful day with family.  Don’t forget: The […]

Saints Nation: Good News For Saints As Jabari Greer Appears Healthy

I think we all collectively felt extremely nervous as Saints fans when Jabari Greer went down last week and never returned to the game in a loss to the Ravens. Greer suffered an undisclosed knee injury which forced Leigh Torrence to play starting cornerback, and that of course resulted in Joe Flacco going after the […]

Saints Nation: Saints Drop From #4 to #6 in Bloguin’s NFL Power Rankings

No surprise, but thanks to the loss to the Ravens, the Saints have dropped from #4 overall to #6 overall in the Bloguin NFL Power Rankings. The Eagles and Falcons remain the only two NFC teams ranked higher than the Saints, with the Falcons at #2 right behind the Patriots. The Ravens have leapfrogged the […]

Saints Nation: Roddy White is Talking Some Trash

Roddy White has been talking a little trash leading up to this Monday Night contest. To catch up on the chatter CLICK HERE and you’ll get a detailed recap of how the whole thing played out. The main thing you want to be aware of as a Saints fan is that Roddy White called us […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Ravens

If I had to pick one reason the Saints lost to the Ravens, it would be summed up with one word: tackling. Forget the lack of balance on offense, forget the horrible coverage units on special teams, forget the stupid penalties, the Saints lost this game because they couldn’t tackle to save their lives. It […]

Saints Nation: Playoff Picture

So I know we all enjoyed watching former LSU Tiger Matt Flynn give the New England Patriots a run for their money, but that Packers loss was huge for the Saints’ playoff chances. Wait a minute, is that picture Matt Flynn from his college days or Matt Damon in an LSU uniform?? I’m actually not […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Ravens

It’s a little late to go back and retroactively grade the coaches, but I really felt like the offense’s failures in this game had a lot more to do with the coaches than the players. Specifically, Sean Payton. He’s human, so while he’s still a premiere offensive coach with an uncanny ability to consistently dial […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Comeback Fall Short Against Ravens, Drop Game 24-30

The Saints dropped a very tough one against the Baltimore Ravens today, dropping to 10-4 overall and almost assuredly kissing goodbye their chances as repeating NFC South Champions. The final score of 30-24 was one I thought the Saints were very fortunate to have so close, as the Ravens continually ran the ball right down […]

Saints Nation: Chris Ivory Defying Long Odds

Chris Ivory has overcome incredibly long odds to get to where he is now. Forget the journey which landed him a mere opportunity to come to an NFL training camp, he also started his career with the Saints behind Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, Lynell Hamilton and P.J Hill on the depth chart at halfback.  Thanks […]

Saints Nation: Happy Trails DeMario Pressley

Most of you have maybe caught wind of this by now, but promising Saints’ young defensive tackle DeMario Pressley is no longer a member of the team. The Houston Texans signed Pressley off the Saints’ practice squad to became a member of their 53 man active roster. This represents an opportunity for Pressley to hopefully […]

Saints Nation: Get Used to The Saints Going on the Road for Big Games

Let’s go ahead and come to terms with this now: The Atlanta Falcons are going to win the NFC South and clinch the #1 seed in the NFC, barring a miracle. Even if the Saints beat the Falcons in two weeks on Monday Night in Atlanta, which will be the most difficult accomplishment the Saints […]

Saints Nation: Saints’ Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Rams

First off, I want to give special teams their due because the coverage units were outstanding. They underwent a dramatic transformation from the Bengals game to this week, so that was really nice to see. Defensively, the Saints are just in the zone right now. The turnovers are really starting to come, which seemed to […]
