The Saints traveled out to the Sunshine State to help fill seats in a stadium with no Chargers fans because they're all still in San Diego where the team should be. Fuck Los Angeles sports. You got the Rams back, why the Chargers?? Fucking assholes. I shall digress... I heard Lance Moore on WWL radio … Continue reading Saints Recline Sit Back and Enjoy: Preseason Week 2
It's Monday night, and the game was Friday night. What can I really say that hasn't been already said about week 1 of preseason? Well first of all, my shit comes out on Monday now barring a Monday Night Football game, so there's that (Expect it on Tuesday, fans). Second, all I've got is hot … Continue reading Saints Recline Sit Back and Enjoy: Preseason W1
How awesome is Wil Lutz really or is he just better than we can remember? Is Thomas Morestead really a punting god or just good for his age? Do we actually have a return game or did we just hire another beer delivery guy? Will this 2019 special teams squad be a liability or an … Continue reading Summer Positions Breakdown 2019: Special Teams is like, WHAAT?? A History of Now
First of all, what a fun group this has become during the Sean Payton era! So many trials and tribulations, so many expectations and failures, some YES moments, and a lot more NOOOOOO moments in general. This is a troubled group position with so many lows, and yet, great amazing highs when they have clicked. … Continue reading Summer Positions Breakdown 2019: The Secondary is Stacked, Y’all!!
And then just like that, it happened... Michael Thomas is now breaking more records, inking the first 100 million dollar contract for an offensive player that's not a quarterback AND being the highest paid wide receiver in NFL history. Now those two records are probably not gonna last that long. But what's amazing for the … Continue reading MICHAEL THOMAS GOT PAID, Y’ALL!!
Rewind before last season, and the linebacker position was quietly the perineal mediocre group of the defense under Sean Payton. The secondary had been under the microscope for so long that the linebackers were just assumed to be sufficient. "Sufficient" is a word I would use to describe the best of the Payton era linebackers … Continue reading 2019 Summer Positions Breakdown: Our Sweet Fragile Linebacker Corp
Do you want to know what is near impossible to do unless you're an NFL scout? Give an objective and thoughtful insight on offensive and defensive lines before training camp starts. Sure we know our returning gents. Cam Jordan is no mystery. Terron Armstead will likely start and have some injury he plays through. But … Continue reading 2019 Summer Positions Breakdown: The O Line and D Line: Parts 1
The days of Coby Fleener hypes and disappointments (oh remember the hope!) and 90 year old Ben Watsons still catching passes while still making babies are over. Well maybe not the babies part. Yes finally, the tight end drought is coming to an end. Jared Cook looks amazing and who cares if he's over 30? … Continue reading 2019 Summer Positions Breakdown: Jared Cook and the Other Tight Ends
Alright, alright, alright. This is gonna be huge and exciting! I was gonna combine wide receivers and tight ends, and then I looked at the current roster and saw 13 receivers and 5 tight ends!! So uh yeah I'll just stick to receivers here. This is by far the largest summer group competition. And the … Continue reading 2019 Summer Positions Breakdown: WR and Michael Thomas is About to Get Paaaaaaaid
Similar to the quarterback position with Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Co., right now there's Alvin Kamara, Latavius Murray, and everyone else. The loss of Mark Ingram is still a fresh sting, but will this 2019 group be able to adapt, dare I say, thrive? C'mon in, let's take a look. Remember Mark's early struggles … Continue reading 2019 Summer Positions Breakdown: RB
