New Orleans Saints defensive and special teams player grades vs. Falcons

When you consider the Saints were starting their 6th and 7th depth chart corners (going into training camp… except Sterling Moore wasn’t even on the team) and the fact that they were without Tyeler Davison, Dannell Ellerbe and Kenny Vaccaro… I guess in hindsight it was silly to expect much. The Falcons were the #1 passing offense in the NFL and Devonta Freeman is an absolute...

Saints lose to the Falcons 45-32, the magic is gone and the gloves are off

The Saints in 2016 are a team that fights, that is something that can’t be denied. However, it’s also a fact that even with ALL of their defensive starters it would be hard to stop the #1 offense in the NFL, and the Saints don’t even close to have all their starters. The Saints had 4 defensive players show up: Craig Robertson, Cameron Jordan, Nick Fairly, Sterling Moore. That’s...
