They’re still at home Home field advantage continues to fall down our list as the Saints are now riding a two game home losing streak. That being said, the history of the Saints in New Orleans is undeniable and until they post a losing record at home for an entire season they still get the benefit of the doubt when playing in the Superdome.

    The NFL is becoming a passing league more and more every year and nowhere is that more apparent than at the tight end position.

    • Goodbye To All That
      This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

      Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?

This isn't to blame Brees for the Saints' misfortunes this year. But it's a primary reason why the Payton-era Saints have started to noticeably fade. Over their last 20 regular season games, the Saints have produced a middling record of 10-10. This…

On defense, they look confused and unmotivated. And overshadowing the whole affair is whether we're now watching the slow death of the Payton/Brees era. Nine seasons in, and it's a fair question to ask. If that's the case, what exactly are we witnessing right now? A temporary bump in the road? Or the inexorable fade to black? Of…

      Saints CB Keenan Lewis returns to practice

      METAIRIE, La. -- Cornerback Keenan Lewis returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, which is a very promising development for the New Orleans Saints.Lewis is arguably as important as any player on the roster outside of quarterback Drew Brees. And the Saints were noticeably impaired when Lewis was limited to just 10 snaps last week because of a lingering knee injury.Lewis said Thursday that he was hopeful the extra day of rest would help this week since the Saints aren’t playing until Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

      Saints' next punt returner remains a mystery

      METAIRIE, La. – I’ve written a lot this week about how the New Orleans Saints will look to replace rookie receiver Brandin Cooks’ production on offense. It remains an even bigger mystery how they’ll replace Cooks as a punt returner.The only player on the Saints’ current roster who has ever returned a punt for them in the regular season is running back/kickoff returner Travaris Cadet. He has two career punt returns for a total of two yards, plus four fair catches.

      Saints express faith in passing game without Brandin Cooks

      METAIRIE, La. – Rookie receiver Brandin Cooks played such a versatile role for the New Orleans Saints that no one single player will be able to replace his production.Fortunately for the Saints, they have more than a half-dozen options to help pick up the slack. Especially now that pass-catching running back Pierre Thomas and deep-threat receiver Robert Meachem are on the mend from lingering injuries.“Here’s the thing. Are we gonna miss him?

      Ravens will throw multiple looks at Jimmy Graham

      OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- By the way the Baltimore Ravens have talked about Jimmy Graham this week, they understand that the New Orleans Saints tight end is a major x-factor in Monday's night's game.Since the start of last season, the Saints are 2-5 when Graham finishes with three catches or fewer. But, when Graham has at least four catches, New Orleans is 13-6.How will the Ravens cover Graham? At 6-foot-7 and 265 pounds, Graham is bigger and more athletic than most tight ends.

      FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith couldn't exactly recall all of the details of his reaction on draft night in 2011."That's so far away,'' Smith said. "I've slept so many times that I don't even remember it.''All Smith knows is he got the player he had hoped for, even if the team traded five picks to Cleveland to get him. Julio Jones was well worth the investment in Smith's eyes."Any time there's a transaction and a trade, you're making that trade to improve your football team,'' Smith said.
