He graded out consistently higher than fellow Saint (and eventual ROY) Alvin Kamara, Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, and Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey.So it should come as no surprise that when Bleacher Report listed one NFL player at each position ready to break out in 2018, that it was Ryan Ryamczyk named at Offensive Tackle.…

Colossally poor free agent signings (Jairus Byrd, 2014), coupled with inconsistent production from high draft picks (Kenny Vaccaro, 1st round, 2013; Malcolm Jenkins, 1st round, 2009) led to a lack of playmakers in the last line of defense, an…

      • 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?

        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.

        Because I live deep in enemy territory (North Carolina), I don't always get to watch the Saints games as they happen.

Will Lutz is going all Great Dane with it. The Ingram-Peterson-Kamara crew looks fun as hell, if not downright daunting. Tommylee Lewis might just render the Brandin Cooks' departure moot.

They fielded one of the worst defenses the NFL has ever seen. They overpaid free agent Brandon Browner, installed him as a team captain, and then watched Browner immediately cement himself as the worst defensive player in franchise history. The defense surrendered a league-worst 4.92 yards per carry, while allowing the most passing touchdowns in a single season by a significant margin.

The offense, while capable, represents the least imposing unit under Payton’s direction. The special teams have suffered through a rotating cast of kickers, punters, and returners. Injuries have abounded. The roster is shallow, combining a core of older players with a collection of inexperience and youth. The Saints’ salary cap is in poor shape—among the league’s worst—and will remain stretched th…

Now midway through the season, it’s tough to tell if the Saints are poised to make a run or if they're just drunkenly shaking a Magic 8-ball every week.

This is an inescapable reality for every NFL team in any given era.  Two weeks into the 2015 season, here we are faced with the ugly truth: the end of the greatest era in Saints football is on the doorstep.For the third time in four seasons, the Saints have started 0-2. They're 7-11 in their last eighteen regular season games. They’re in a tailspin of increasing ferocity.

Who’s gonna do it? Among Brandon Coleman, CJ Spiller, and the combination of Ben Watson/Josh Hill, it’s tough to tell if the Saints have adequately addressed this need.

Just a few months later he'd won a spot on the team, beating out 4th-round draft pick Antonio Pittman, a player selected to eventually fill the shoes of an aging Deuce McCallister.
