What we learned from the New Orleans Saints first win of 2014

Home is where the heart is. No phrase could better explain the phenomena of this New Orleans Saints squad. Despite playing lights out offensively in Week 1 and making strides defensively in Week 2, both road games were debilitating losses. On Sunday the Saints weren’t necessarily splendid in any one phase of the game, but stellar in all three. It held a beleaguered Minnesota offense...

Grade Day: New Orleans Saints pass, but without flying colors

The Saints finally jumped into the win column on Sunday, earning a 20-9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at the Superdome. It wasn’t a world-beating performance – and it certainly won’t set our minds at ease for the coming weeks – but it got the job done. Drew Brees was efficient, completing 77-percent of his passes for just under 300 yards and two touchdowns, while also...

WATCH: Drew Brees loses it after being slammed

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is usually calm and collected on the field. But in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, after CB Captain Munnerlyn came free and sacked him late in the third quarter, he lost it. It wasn’t about the sack, though. It was about the way he finished it. Munnerlyn blitzed off the edge on the play and as he hit the QB, he grabbed and slammed...

Minnesota gets a Viking funeral: Saints scouting report week 3

Tell me if you have heard this one before; the Saints are by far the better team here and should win this game by a landslide. That was the case week 1, was the case last week against Cleveland, and is the case this week against Minnesota. They key word there of course is should. I am not a beat writer (as you can tell by my numerous grammatical mistakes and entirely Saints-centric...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Vikings – Week 3

Brian Pavek is the first one to have called a bold prediction correctly. But really, it wasn’t bold. It was sarcasm. So sorry Brian, that does not count. Indeed the Saints gave up less then 400 yards. It was 324 total. There are some more calls that are sarcasm this week. Try to spot them! Andrew Juge Saints get 7 sacks. Colston has 10+ catches. Neer Shah Saints win by...

Sean Payton Screams Rob Ryan (Video)

Rob Ryan better watch himself. The Saints are 0-2, and the defense has given up game winning drives two weeks in a row. Head coach Sean Payton had seen enough during the fourth quarter and let Ryan know about his displeasure in a loud manner.  Ryan, of course wasn’t going to go quietly, and shouted back. This is a relationship to watch.

Current and former NFL players weigh in about Adrian Peterson’s arrest on Twitter

The harrowing news stories that surfaced during this past week were difficult to digest for NFL players and fans alike.
