Saints Say Farewell To 'Super' Foursome

Posted by Saints Fan in Austin , 12 February 2014 - * * * * * · 185 views

We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it any easier.
Today, the New Orleans Saints bid farewell to four of the best "people" to ever wear black & old gold. Though each came to New Orleans with varying degrees of fanfare, all of them leave New Orleans with unquestioned love from Saints fans. 
When I was sitting in Reliant Stadium watch...

Dark Nights Now....Brighter Days Ahead

"Gone for the year!" Wait, what? Gone for the year? As if it wasn't bad enough that one of my good friends and Falcons fanatics was delivering the news, our coach was being snatched from us for an entire season, the season in which we were to be the first team to host a Super Bowl that we were playing in. Took a minute to process. Or a few...

What Did You Expect?

wonderful offseason and 1 more...
Saints fans have been in awe of the free agency moves of Mickey Loomis and co. through the first two weeks of this abbreviated offseason but I have to ask, “Why are you surprised?” The Saints have been about winning since Coach Payton stepped foot into New Orleans and after tasting the ultimate prize, they are coming back for more.

Let us not...

What's The Deal???

So everybody is wondering what is wrong with the Saints.  I know I am.  The board is.  The media is.  Hell, the players are.  Let’s examine what is different this year from the last…

The first thing that stands out to me is the lack of big plays on both the offensive and defensive ends.  Well, I guess that was the obvious observation.  The less clear...

We Dat...

For fear of jinxing this season, I've avoided posting my blog, noting that we had lost every game after a blog entry earlier this season. Not that I'm taking credit for the wins, but I did realize how I could contribute to us not losing. But I digress...

The New Orleans Saints have won Super Bowl XLIV. Shall I repeat it? I think I will. The...

What A Ride...

The last time I visited with you was during the preseason, after the Saints had just monkey-stomped the Texans in Houston and I vowed when the regular season started that I wouldn't write another blog entry until the Saints lost a regular/post season game.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I wouldn't write again for more than three...

Home Away From Home In Houston...

Posted by Saints Fan in Austin , 26 August 2009 - - - - - - · 180 views

So, I've finally come down from the cloud that the Saints 38-14 monkey-stomping of the Texans in Houston produced and the thought that won't leave my head is, "this is the year!"  Well, it could be wishful thinking, projecting expectations, or the lingering effects of the sticky green a guys was smoking next to me at a concert here in...

Look At All These Rumors...

Posted by Saints Fan in Austin , 20 May 2009 - - - - - - · 168 views

With the amount of rumors surrounding the Saints this offseason, the actual season is going to be boring. I mean, when has the Saints ever been connected to the likes of LaDainian Tomlinson and now, the newly released almost-QB Mike Vick?

Now don't think I'm against bringing Michael Vick to New Orleans because I'm not. Hell, I'm for it. It's kind of...

It's A Wrap...

Well, draft weekend is a wrap and I must say, overall, I'm impressed with the way the Saints focused on their defense, secondary in particular.  Now I know highlights are supposed to impress you but Ohio State cornerback Malcolm Jenkins looks like everything this secondary has been missing the last few years.  He's been a stud on the big stage at...

Revolution Members 'Mock' The First Round...

Posted by Saints Fan in Austin , 23 April 2009 - - - - - - · 171 views

With the draft some two days away, our members decided to try their luck at 'mocking' the draft.  Below is our best guess at what will happen in Saturday's first round of the 2009 NFL Draft:

1. Detroit Lions - Northshore Saint - Matt Stafford, QB, Georgia
2. St. Louis Rams - GoEagles - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
3. Kansas City Chiefs...
