    Saints vs. Texans: Five Questions with Battle Red Blog

    Ahead of the preseason dress rehearsal between the Saints and the Texans in the Mercedes Benz Superdome on Sunday, we spoke with Brett Kollmann of SB Nation's Battle Red Blog about the state of the 2015 Houston Texans. 1) ­­­­Canal Street Chronicles: The Texans rebounded from an abysmal 2-14 season in 2013, to a fairly respectable 9-7 record last year. Despite the fact that they missed the postseason in 2014, what/who do you credit with enabling Houston to improve so dramatically from one year to the next?Brett Kollmann: That jump in wins was 100% because of Bill O'Brien. He is a ph…

    Saints News, 8/27/15: Saints Using Preseason to Tinker with Configuration of Coaching Staff during Games

    From Nick Underhill at The Advocate: The Saints are using the preseason to find a set of best practices for the coaching staff during the season. During the first preseason game, the team had linebackers coach Joe Vitt on the sidelines and defensive assistant Dennis Allen up in the press box. During the second game, Allen came down to the sidelines and Vitt moved up to the box. It’s likely the team will continue moving people around this week against the Houston Texans to determine the best configuration. Those involved are open to trying out new things. “We actually switched around…

  • 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?

    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?
