Saints Nation: Photos From Hall of Fame Weekend

Here are a number of shots taken from Hall of Fame weekend. All photos taken by Anne Juge of Antiques of Paris. Above is one taken with myself and Drew Brees. Of all the people I met over the weekend, I have to say the most approachable and engaging, by far, were Joe Vitt, Steve […]

Saints Nation: Gregg Williams Bounty Audio Revealed

The most incriminating evidence against Gregg Williams in the bounty gate scandal came out in a leaked audio clip of a pregame speech to his defense before the 49ers playoff game this past year. If you haven’t heard it yet, be forewarned, there’s lots of profanity and explicit language. Here is the audio clip in […]

Happy New Year From Saints Nation!

I want to take a moment to thank everyone for their support of Saints Nation, it truly means the world… especially Marijn Pressers, Jim Gleason and Allison Smith who have been by far the most frequent commenters. I can’t tell you how much you are appreciated! Without you Saints Nation wouldn’t be nearly as much […]

Saints Nation: Previewing the Carolina Panthers

This is the final regular season game as the Carolina Panthers come to town. It should be a tightly contested game as the first time these two clubs faced each other it was won on the last drive the Saints had the ball. I expect this game to go two ways: either the Saints will […]

Saints Nation: 5 of Saints’ 11 Offensive Starters Headed to Pro Bowl

It’s pretty amazing when you consider almost half of the Saints’ offense is getting elected to go to the Pro Bowl. That’s a testament to just how good they are, and of course they have the #1 ranking to attest to that. Drew Brees, Jahri Evans, Carl Nicks, Jermon Bushrod and Jimmy Graham are all […]

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

I’m starting to come to terms with what this Saints defense is. Once again they did a tremendous job against the run and I’m starting to become a believer that the interior is meshing well together. Stopping the run the last few weeks has come at the expense of giving up some massive passing yardage, but […]

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Falcons

While the night belonged to Drew Brees for breaking Dan Marino’s record in the 45-16 win over the Falcons, the may group I want to commend after this masterful performance is the offensive line and the running backs. The Falcons entered this game #4 in the NFL against the run and the Saints positively manhandled them. The Falcons […]

Saints Nation: 5 Things To Watch for in Today’s Game vs. Falcons

Today the Saints will have a chance to clinch the NFC South title with a win over the the Falcons in the Superdome. Here are 5 things I’ll be looking for: 1. Can the Saints run the ball effectively on the Falcons’ solid defense? The Saints managed just 41 yards on 16 carries last time […]

Saints Nation: Why I Hate the Falcons

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM SAINTS NATION! We wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday season, and Tyler’s got a nice ANTI ATLANTA post to getting you in the Christmas spirit! Being a Saints fan this has to be the easiest article to write all season. I truly hate the Atlanta Falcons as it has […]

Saints Nation: So Much On the Line As Saints Host Falcons

There’s an overwhelming number of things the Saints and their fans are rooting for as this season comes to a close. On Monday night the bitter rival Atlanta Falcons come to town and one would think that a victory would be the only objective the Saints are focusing on. Not the case, though. Here are […]

Saints Nation: A Case for Drew Brees as MVP

As the NFL regular season comes close to a close, one of the foregone conclusions we’ve expected all season long was the crowning of Aaron Rodgers as league MVP. Entering last week, Rodgers was 13-0 as a starter of the Green Bay Packers and his current  TD to INT ratio is a both sterling and […]

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

While 20 points is the most points the Saints have given up in three weeks, surprisingly, this was by far their best performance of the three weeks. For the first time perhaps this season the Saints looked strong against the run, good at pressuring the passer, and solid on the back end. All in all, while […]

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Vikings

Despite a sloppy start that included alarming mistakes, laziness, lack of focus and penalties, the Saints scored 42 points. The offense is that good. To be able to overcome some of the glitches to put up a point total like that is amazing. Granted, they didn’t exactly play the best defense in the world, but I […]


Saints Nation: Saints Demolish Vikings 42-20

The offense played a pretty sloppy first half, but beyond that it was a close to flawless performance in Minneapolis as the Saints rolled 42-20. The defense may have given up the most points they have in the last three weeks (20 points) but they played what I thought was their best game all season. […]

Saints Nation: 5 Things to Watch for in Saints @ Vikings

Gameday is here as the Saints find themselves on the road once again traveling to Minnestoa . The Saints are coming off a tough win against Tennessee, while the Vikings lost to division foe Detroit. This game on paper should be a blowout but just think back to that trip the Saints made to St. […]

Saints Nation: Scouting the Vikings

This week the Saints travel to the Metrodome to face the 2-11 Minnesota Vikings. I had to go back to look at the standings just to make sure that the Vikings have really lost eleven games. To say it has been a down year for the Vikings would be an understatement as they have played […]

Saints Nation: Drew Brees on Sesame Street

Few people are more obsessed with Elmo than my 19 month old son, so while some of you will find this incredibly boring and lame… it’s just too funny not to post. Drew Brees appeared on Sesame Street with Elmo this week. They get into the nitty gritty of the word “measure” in this one. […]
