SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees firmly on the hot seat entering Week 8

It doesn’t take long for the pressure to mount in the NFL. Just seven weeks into the 2014 season, plenty of people find themselves under the microscope, trying to answer questions about their most-recent performance. Who is in that spot? Here are five on the hot seat this weekend: *** 5. Jay Cutler Cutler can’t lay another egg this week A week after getting called out by teammate...

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...

May the least-bad team win

How unlucky have the Saints been? This season has become rather non-bueno, with the Saints sitting at 2–4 having already had their bye week. What’s scary: they’ve played the 31st-easiest schedule in the league through Week 6, according to Football Outsiders. Going forward, they have the 19th-hardest remaining schedule, so things are likely to get worse if the team doesn’t...

Every week, from now through the Wednesday before the Super Bowl, the editors at cover32 will gather to rank the NFL’s 32 starting quarterbacks. Depending on what’s happened the previous week, some will rise and some will fall, and even some of the names on the list will change.

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...

Sean Payton to reporter: “Be quiet”

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was quite testy during his press conference after Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. Next question. Next smart question.” And: “Be quiet, I’m answering the question. Be quiet. You asked a question, I’m answering it. Can you let me finish?

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. One particular reporter learned the hard way in the news conference that followed Sunday's game—which the (2-4) Saints lost to the Lions, 24-23. Things got a bit chippy in the presser after the game. Payton was first asked a question that he didn't like. So he...

Sean Payton Tells Reporters To ‘Shut Up’

Sean Payton kept it real today, perhaps a little too real.  We understand your frustration, coach, but keep your cool when talking to reporters. It’s ironic that mainstream teams are getting criticized for their record but no one is really saying anything about the Saints, yet. Today, the Saints lost to the Detroit Lions. The post game presser was quite interesting. “Next question...

Saints suffer inexplicable loss 24-23 to Lions

The Saints are now 2-4, somehow, and all we can chalk this up to is some sort of road voodoo. The Saints were up 23-10 and in complete control of this game until a comedy of errors and referee contribution helped the Lions pull off the improbable comeback. This loss hurts worse than the Falcons game and Browns game and it will leave a mark both literally and figuratively. Multiple...
