We've all been in this position before; I know I have said or written something I've regretted.  Saints defensive back Keenan Lewis also regrets his Instagram rant of a week ago and is happy to have a new deal with the Black and Gold.  "I'm a human being. I get scared sometimes, and it wasn't about the money. It was the promise because the love I had for my city." Read More

Cam Jordan

Steve: Saints working long-term deal for Cam Jordan

No Trade!

Greer's Take

Deke: Jabari Greer chimes in on Saints roster moves


It was November 11, 2013 and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was rocking. The Saints put a 23-20 licking on San Francisco 49ers to up their record to 8-2.  And the Black and Gold were in control of everything, from the lead in the NFC South to the #1 seed in the NFC Playoffs.  But none of us could see the impact that losing a key player would have.

Saints Plan

Deke: Saints clearly have a plan in place

High Stakes

T-Bob: With Graham trade, Saints are "all-in!"

Relax, Y'all

Jordan: Keep Calm and Who Dat on


Graham hauled in 386 receptions for a whopping 4,752 yards and 51 touchdowns.  He even led the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 2013.  No matter how you slice it, losing a 6’7, 260lbs tight end with that kind of production will hurt. However, Who Dats shouldn’t worry.  This looks like a win for the Saints.

T-Bob: Don't you dare call Drew Brees greedy


There has been a lot of debate recently over whether or not Drew Brees should take a pay cut.  This is a legitimate argument, yet it spawns a viewpoint that I absolutely hate, and that is that Drew Brees will be portrayed as greedy if he doesn’t take a pay cut.  This makes no sense to me. Read More

Kristian: Should Drew Brees take a pay cut?


The cash strapped Saints are trying to trim money off the 2015 salary cap, and the question becomes; is now the time for Drew Brees to come to the Saints rescue and take a pay cut?  I for one don’t think he needs to volunteer to take less money. Read More

Free Agency

Kristian: Corner is a priority for Saints in free agency


NFL free agency is right around the corner. Typically the Saints haven’t been big spenders in this time, aside from last off-season when they spent big money bringing in Jairus Byrd just hours into free agency.  The Saints like the bargain players. Read More
Sad Day

Deke: Who Dats are sad about letting PT go


Well it’s the nature of the business.  It can happen to anyone, and it has. But that does not make today’s news any easier for members of the Who Dat Nation.  Running back Pierre Thomas was informed today by the Saints that he would be released, ending an eight year run of the once-Cinderella story in a Black and Gold uniform.

Deke: Saints have fiscal work going into free agency


If history tells us anything, the New Orleans Saints are right where they want to be.  Ha!

Saints Needs

Kristian: Top priority for Saints - corner or offensive line?


Which position is the highest priority of need for the Saints to address this off-season? Is it cornerback or offensive line (guard)?  You could make an solid argument for either one, and originally I thought it was offensive line.  However, my partner T-Bob Hebert has swayed me just a bit.
