    Saints News, 7/29/15: Saints Make Quiet Entrance at the Greenbrier for Training Camp

    From Katherine Terrell at NOLA.com: If the New Orleans Saints' arrival at the Greenbrier Resort for training camp on Tuesday proved anything, it's just how much can change in a year. Aside from a few banners leftover from last year in the towns of White Sulphur Springs and Lewisburg, W. Va, there was little indication that an NFL team was about to set up shop for the next month. Aside from a few scattered fans at the airport and at the entrance to the resort, the Saints who touched down just as it started to rain, arrived with little fanfare. Gone was the brass band that played at the ai…

    From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Brock, 29, has bounced around the NFL with 10 different teams since originally joining the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers in 2009 – mostly on practice squads and offseason rosters. But he finally started to see significant playing time over the past two years with the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals. Manhart (6-4, 298) originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles after this year’s draft but was released when they signed a veteran guard in June.

  • 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?

    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?

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. But it would be the then-unknown Pierre Thomas who would ably and memorably fill those shoes in the coming years, ultimately authoring a Saints' ca…
