A Florida businessman has started a GoFundMe account to purchase a billboard in New Orleans to remind Who Dat nation that the Saints’ NFC South rival, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are Super Bowl champions for the second time in franchise history.
LSU was reportedly close to naming Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen as its next defensive coordinator on Monday, Jan. 18, but it didn’t happen and the Tigers are still searching for Bo Pelini’s replacement.
Sometime between Sunday, Jan. 10, and early February, Drew Brees will throw his final pass as a New Orleans Saint. Here's a tribute to the record-shattering future first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback.
The Saints’ defensive unit believes it has been battle-tested enough to earn the cliche’, “defense wins championships.” It finished the regular season ranked in the top five of every major statistical category.
The New Orleans Saints hope to have star running back Alvin Kamara and the whole gang back for their opening-round playoff contest against the Chicago Bears in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, Jan. 10.
Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes and the New Orleans Saints’ defense intercepted the Carolina Panthers five times and in the regular season finale in Charlotte, N.C. to take home the win and the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
The New Orleans Saints have placed running back Alvin Kamara on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team confirmed Friday, Jan. 1. He will miss Sunday’s game against the Panthers and the first playoff game is in question.
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his record-tying performance in the team’s win over the Vikings. It is Kamara’s first time winning the honor.
The Saints are coming off a 52-point explosion against the Minnesota Vikings but there were still a few throws Brees would like to have back. Despite those miscues, No. 9 did become the first player in NFL history to reach 80,000 yards through the air.
Alvin Kamara rushed for 155 yards and six touchdowns in the Saints’ win over the Vikings in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Christmas Day. His six rushing touchdowns set a new franchise record and tied an NFL record.
Some of the top priorities for the Black and Gold this week are rest and relaxation, especially for the defense following its 92-play performance against the Chiefs. Seven players didn't practice or were limited.
The Saints’ offense was out of step most of the day, not getting a first down until the second quarter. The wide receivers also had difficulty separating from the Chiefs’ defenders, leaving Drew Brees with no targets.
The New Orleans Saints fell to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 13, snapping a nine-game win streak. The Saints’ defense also snapped a 55-game streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher. The Eagles had two players run the ball for more than 100 yards.
Drew Brees is eligible to return for the Saints’ upcoming game with the Eagles but if he isn't activated, Taysom Hill will have a chance to go 4-0 in his absence. Jalen Hurts will start for Philadelphia.
The Saints have won all three games with Taysom Hill starting in place of Drew Brees but Brees is eligible to return from injured reserve this week and have clinched a playoff berth but Sean Payton maintained it is a small step in the journey.
