Drew Brees Doesn’t Believe Sunday’s Game is a Must Win

The New Orleans Saints may be in the verge of dropping to 2-5 on the season. The only way they can avoid that mark is by defeating a red-hot Green Bay Packers team on Sunday night in New Orleans. Attempting not to show any panic as it relates to the Saints slow start, quarterback Drew Brees doesn’t feel that this is a must-win affair for his team (via Packers.com). There’s no...

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Packers – Week 8

I loved you guys joining in and adding to the bold predictions! The Lewis pick 6 came close.. Pick was true, the 6 was not. Andrew Doyle’s week 5 prediction of the Saints winning the rest of the season was true for nearly 2 games. Not the rest of the season. Seems Payton needs to call the evil and ask him why his contract for a 13-3 season seems not to be working. Also none of...

New Orleans Saints' search for second starting cornerback failed from the start

The New Orleans Saints were on easy street at cornerback, for once, during the 2013 season. They weren't going to find much better than Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer. The tandem stood as one of the primary factors in such an over-achieving turnaround on defense last season. New Orleans was 8-2 when Lewis and Greer started together. Greer then sustained what turned out to be...

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Mailbag: Is there a precedent to move on from New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees?

Nick, there’s no question it’s been a difficult season so far. In light of Drew Brees’ late interception against the Lions, I have to ask if the Saints should move on from Brees this offseason like the Colts did with Peyton Manning? – Carl Carl, I understand your frustration and Brees certainly hasn’t been at his best this year. But we need to be careful with this kind...

Video: Sean Payton tells reporter to ‘be quiet’ after being interrupted during press conference

Do not attempt to interrupt New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton when he's in the middle of speaking.
