Brooks Can be a Huge Addition to Saints’ Defense
I was wondering if any NFL team would be in need of an eleven-time Pro Bowl linebacker who has started in 221 of 224 games played in his career? The New Orleans Saints could use such a player. Especially one who has Super Bowl championship experience. Derrick Brooks...

Saints’ defense: What to make of it?
The only thing who may have stumbled more then the Saints secondary last year was a tourist at 4 a.m. on Bourbon Street. One of the big questions about the Saints is whether the defense can come in and improve upon last year, as their offensive air attack led by Drew B...

One for the road would be nice for struggling Saints
There are a few certainties in the NFL. The Houston Texans won't make it to the playoffs until 2020. Eli Manning will hold the record for most times a QB shakes his head and adjusts his shoulder pads. And you won't make the playoffs without winning games on the road. Th...

Saints don’t have a prayer to make playoffs
Is there a voodoo doctor in the house? Something needs to be done to exorcise the New Orleans Saints' demons. They've been dominated two weeks in a row against divisional opponents, and even stellar quarterback Drew Brees was to blame in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Brees...

Time to pop the MVP top off Matty Ice
I received a text message Friday night from a friend asking me if I thought Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was a worthy candidate for Most Valuable Player honors in the National Football League. "No," I replied, "but he is the offensive rookie of the year, no que...

For Saints, game against Falcons no longer a ‘Brees’
S.O.S. stood for "Save our Saints" a few years ago. In 2008, it should mean "Save our season." The Saints find themselves behind the 8-ball in Week 10 as they prepare to face the surprisingly solid Atlanta Falcons. The days of showing up and beating the Falcons -- who a...

As injuries mount, Saints can’t take anything for Granted
Sometimes it just doesn't seem fair what has happened this season to the New Orleans Saints. A team chock full of potential has been hit time after time with injuries to key players. Reggie Bush? Check. Marques Colston? Check. Jeremy Shockey? Of course. Now the injury g...

Payton gives special teams a kick in the pants
Maybe there is some bad mojo going on in New Orleans, but the Saints seem to have quite a hard time getting a consistent kicker. Earlier this month, head coach Sean Payton released kicker Taylor Mehlhaff and punter Ben Graham and signed Garrett Hartley to replace the fo...

New Orleans’ backfield depleted
The door was open for Saints running back Deuce McAllister to regain his name after running back Reggie Bush went down with a torn meniscus in Week 7. McAllister made headlines, but not in the way he wanted. In fact, he failed an NFL drug test after testing positive for...

Brees looks to make Chargers pay
In 2006, the New Orleans Saints took a chance on free agent Drew Brees; back then, the San Diego Chargers were concerned about taking that very chance on the injured quarterback. Arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum and a partially torn rotator cuff, along with...

   Shockey opening mouth is no shocker
Is Jeremy Shockey's mouth running? Then you'd better go catch a pass for his team; after all, he won't be for a while. The often disgruntled tight end fired off complaints to anyone who would listen after New Orleans' embarrassing 30-7 loss Sunday in Carolina. Shockey r...

Colston could offer burst to first for Saints
Top-ranked quarterback Drew Brees has been doing just fine throwing the ball to second-tier receivers like Devery Henderson this season. This week, though, he'll look to go deep to one of the best wideouts in the NFL, Marques Colston. It could be the difference between...

Saints subscribe to Cable in beating Raiders
Raiders owner Al Davis thought he had cured his team's woes by firing Lane Kiffin during its bye week. Not so much. New Orleans took advantage of interim head coach Tom Cable's inexperience in crushing the Raiders last Sunday, 34-3. The win kept the Saints in the NFC So...

Opponents have their own personal Mardi Gras with Saints’ defense
The Saints, led by Drew Brees and Reggie Bush, may be the greatest show on turf right now, but it's all for nothing if New Orleans' defense keeps allowing teams to throw parties in the end zone at such a normal rate. The Saints are currently giving up 351.6 yards a game...

Lance offers Moore of the same for high-octane offense
When all-everything wide receiver Marques Colston went down with a thumb injury earlier this season, it appeared the Saints' passing game would take a substantial hit. However, unheralded veteran wideout Lance Moore -- who has 14 catches and 179 yards over the past two...

New Orleans running back Deuce McAllister ran for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 31-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. McAllister's effort was his best since coming back from a knee injury that knocked him out of the 2007 season. Commentary: S...
