New Orleans Saints shut out of NFL offensive awards (and disappointments) so far

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Is Julius Thomas the best tight end playing in the NFL today?

Most sportswriters would tell you that Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints is the best tight end playing in the NFL today. I am not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, Graham is a fine tight end but I consider him to be a wide receiver in all but name only. If you take issue with that you should know that Graham himself made the same argument when he was trying to renegotiate his...

Saints’ Sean Payton: ‘I don’t think we discuss the postseason at 1-3′

The New Orleans Saints were considered by some to be Super Bowl contenders.  But after Sunday night’s 38-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Saints are just 1-3 this season. “It’s challenging. It’s disappointing. It’s frustrating,” coach Sean Payton said Sunday.  “But that’s on all of us right now. It’s on me, it’s on our staff, it’s on the team and those are...

Saints embarrassed by Cowboys in Dallas 38-17

The Saints lost on the road again, but this time it wasn’t by a last second game winning field goal. Instead, they were completely outplayed in all phases as they lost 38-17. The score was 24-0 at halftime in favor of the Cowboys and the game was never in doubt. Many will wonder what has happened to the Saints and to me it’s pretty clear. This game is on everyone in the organization...

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...
