    Saints Training Camp 2014 Recap Notes: Day Five

    The top five things we've learned so far about the 2014 Saints after five days of training camp at The Greenbriar in White Sulphur Springs, WV. Here are five major points of interest coming out of Saints training camp at The Greenbriar in White Sulphur Springs, WV after four days of practice.***1. Nothing to panic about just yet but I definitely don't like the direction this is heading already. Jairus Byrd (remind me how much did the Saints paid him?) and John Jenkins on PUP. Kenny Stills out with a quad injury. Ben Grubbs missing practice with an unknown injury. Robert Meachem with a…

  • 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.

  • Carolina In My Mind
    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?

  • Downfall
    The Saints' loss to the Seahawks was so one-sided, so crushing a defeat, it seemed there must be shell craters on the New Orleans sideline. It wouldn't have surprised me to hear that Sean Payton had shot himself to avoid capture. But even so, it left behind unanswered questions: were the 2013 Saints nothing but a mirage? Or are the Seahawks really this good?

  • Rise Give Up
    Here's an obvious truth: the Atlanta Falcons are not a very good team. Here's a less obvious, but more profound truth—or, at least, one you won't hear from the established media: they never were a very good team to begin with. The lesson we learned about the Atlanta Falcons was as clear as could be: they are who we thought they were.

  • Just Another Day At The Office
    Because I live deep in enemy territory (North Carolina), I don't always get to watch the Saints games as they happen. But watching them after you already know what's going to happen can sometimes be instructive: it helps cut through the nonsense that tends to float to the surface afterwards.

    No Simple Highway

    As it turns out, getting back to the Super Bowl isn't quite so easy.Now five seasons removed from their greatest moment, the Saints, older and wiser in ways, younger and more promising in others, approach 2014 with the residue of a championship increasingly faint, the present challenges perhaps greater, the fleeting nature of opportunity threatening, yet the hope of a new day once again beaming in the distance.Navigating their way back to the Super Bowl has been a circuitous, and at times torturous, route for these Saints. They've been turned away and denied repeatedly, by Seattle, San Francis…

    Sea Change

    The second installment of the Sean Payton era is in full bloom.Earlier this year, the Saints jump-started their offseason by releasing Will Smith, Roman Harper, and Jabari Greer: all valued, productive, respected players who helped the Saints win their first Super Bowl.With those cuts made, the Saints took another step forward on Friday and released Lance Moore and Darren Sproles.

    The Jimmy Situation

    Here we go again.The Saints placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jimmy Graham, setting in motion the crucial stage of Graham's contract negotiations.Under the specifications of the non-exclusive tag, Graham is now free to negotiate with any team in the league. Should he sign a contract with a new team, the Saints, if they choose not to match the offer, would receive two first-round draft picks as compensation for losing Graham.Likely before any (meaningful) negotiations take place, however, there is the issue of whether Graham will be designated as a tight end or a wide receiver.

    Buccaneers Camp Report: Day 5

    TAMPA, Fla. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp:The defense dominated the first few days of camp, but Wednesday was the best showing by the offense so far. There were two players in particular that stood out. Quarterback Josh McCown and wide receiver Vincent Jackson showed they’ve developed some chemistry. They hooked up on a pass play of about 50 yards and connected for back-to-back touchdowns in red-zone drills.

    Rookie Devonta Freeman already beat odds

    Devonta Freeman has no worries.The Atlanta Falcons' rookie running back must have felt like he won the lottery after receiving his $475,000-plus signing bonus as part of a four-year, $2.7 million contract. But flashing his new riches was the last of his concerns.Taking care of his mother, Lorraine, was at the forefront of his thoughts."Me personally, I don’t want nothing," Freeman said. "I promise you. I can’t tell you one thing I want.

    Brees 'rejuvenated' by young teammates

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees looks around the field and the locker room this summer and recognizes more new faces around him than ever before.But Brees said as much as he misses longtime teammates like Lance Moore and Darren Sproles, he also feels rejuvenated by developing that “same trust and ESP” with new, young teammates.Brees is certainly excited by his newest toy, rookie receiver Brandin Cooks, whom Brees has been connecting with for some big plays on almost a daily basis.

    Saints' Rob Ryan loves his safeties

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan already proved how much he loves to feature safeties in his versatile defense last year. The Saints spent about 75 percent of their snaps in nickel defense -- almost always using three safeties on the field at once.Now Ryan has even more ammo to work with after the Saints added three-time Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd in free agency to pair with returning young players Kenny Vaccaro and Rafael Bush.

    Brees: Thomas NFL's best all-purpose back

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- It’s still too early in New Orleans Saints training camp to judge exactly how they plan to split the workload among their deep running back corps.My best guess is that Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson will split carries pretty evenly in base packages and early downs, while Pierre Thomas lines up more with the nickel offenses (sort of the old Darren Sproles role). That would make sense, since Thomas is both the best pass-catcher and the best pass-protector of all the Saints’ running backs.

    Spence, McDonald in close contest

    One of the best competitions of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' training camp is at nose tackle.Clinton McDonald was brought in as a free agent and Akeem Spence, last season's starter, returns. The competition between the two is intense, but healthy."You want to make each other better, you've got to push each other," McDonald said. "Iron sharpens iron and so does the kindness of a friend and that's the kind of approach we're taking with the whole team.

    Falcons Camp Report: Day 5

    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga -- A daily review of the hot topics from Atlanta Falcons' training camp:The news of the day was the absence of running back Steven Jackson, who apparently tweaked his knee during Monday's first padded practice. Although coach Mike Smith said he fully expects Jackson to be ready for the season opener against New Orleans (Sept. 7), Jackson had a right hamstring injury that lingered longer than expected last season and kept him out four games.

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of New Orleans Saints training camp:Another day, another "wow" moment for rookie Saints receiver Brandin Cooks. At some point, I'm going to have to borrow a Sean Payton term and start "de-recruiting" Cooks instead of continuing to pump him up. But that's hard to do when he keeps making eye-popping plays. This time Cooks took a screen pass from Drew Brees and shot past a couple hapless defenders for a touchdown.

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of the Carolina Panthers training camp from Wofford College:For the second straight day coach Ron Rivera extended practice, only this time was because he liked what he was seeing. He called it the best practice of camp, and he's liked most of the others. The biggest difference today was the energy. It began on a high note when left tackle candidate Byron Bell opened with what he calls his "hopping" dance -- something he learned in his college fraternity at New Mexico -- that fired everyone up.
