    As discussed when New Orleans’ opponents were released, games against the NFC East, AFC South, Detroit and Arizona present the Saints with the league’s fifth easiest schedule based on their opponents’ 2014 win percentage. Two games against the 2-14 Buccaneers, however, are greatly bringing down that percentage.With how their schedule is laid out, it’s imperative that the Saints get off to a hot start. The first eight games of the season are going to be a test, and if Sean Payton and the Bayou Boys survive this gauntlet, it’ll set them up nicely for a late-season playoff push.The comb…

    The experience, potential and skills of Georgia's Todd Gurley and Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon ought to entice a couple of teams to end the unprecedented two-year absence of running backs from the first round. Elite running backs haven't stopped being developed by college programs, as evidenced by the depth of this class that could produce about a dozen picks by the end of the third round. So why doesn't this position measure up anymore to some of the others when NFL teams rank their prospects? Maybe they didn't feel the running backs the last couple of years were first-round talent.

    Appearing on ESPN's 'Mike & Mike in the Morning' today during a Kenny Chesney interview segment, Payton said he expects his staff to finish up pre-Draft player grades tomorrow night and then complete all preparations early next week. Payton said he, his coaches, and college scouts have been meeting every day from around 7:30 AM to 10:30 PM to meticulously discuss and evaluate players available in the 2015 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday night.

    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?

Or are the Seahawks really this good?
