Saints Loss: Non-Call of the Game

Not much was made of this play, but during the replay it was pretty clear Ben Obomanu made the catch and a “football move” before the ball was dislodged by Jabari Greer. The pass was ruled incomplete and Saints head coach Sean Payton looked incensed. But because the pass was ruled incomplete, Payton couldn’t challenge […]

'Saints on 6'

The Saints/Seahawks wild card playoff game will be broadcast on WDSU. Kickoff is 3:30, but we’ll have THREE HOURS of Countdown to Kickoff coverage leading up to NBC’s coverage at 3:00.

So It’s the Seahawks…

The Saints (11-5) will travel to Seattle this week to play the NFC West Champion Seahawks (7-9) in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs. To get back to the Super Bowl, the Saints will have to win three straight on the road. The Who Dats have excelled on the road under Sean Payton. Since 2006, Payton’s […]

Saints Gameday: Tampa Bay @ New Orleans

Stranger things have happened. I’m not saying the Panthers will beat the Falcons and open the door for the Saints to clinch the top seed in the NFC. I’m only saying the Saints have made the improbable seem probable the past two seasons, so I won’t write it off completely. But if the Falcons show […]

Saints Return to Playoffs

The Saints are back in the playoffs. That hasn’t happened in back-to-back seasons since 1991-92. The defending Super Bowl champs served noticed to the Falcons and the rest of the NFL that they are still a force to reckoned with, still a team on a mission. Drew Brees, bouncing back from two confounding fourth quarter […]

Sunday Morning Saints Wrap

Tim Hightower broke free for 70 yards on the game’s first play. He ran five times for 17 yards the rest of the way. Almost immediately after the lightning-fast 7-0 deficit made the 70,149 in the Dome groan in disbelief  and the press box media shift a bit in their seats, the Saints dismantled the […]

Deuce's Intro

Saints Re-Sign Deuce McAllister

WDSU was first to report this morning that fan favorite Deuce McAllister had re-signed with the New Orleans Saints, the team that drafted him out of Ole Miss in 2001. McAllister is the Saints’ all-time leading rusher. Deuce will not be active for tomorrow’s game, but will lead the team onto the field. It’ll be […]

Cardinal Trash Talk

Seriously, why would Antrel Rolle say this just a few days before he actually faces Drew Brees? From NOLA.com: Arizona Cardinals free safety Antrel Rolle said of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a YahooSports report: “I don’t ever want to face him again in my life. I am dead serious. I’ll face Drew […]

New Orleans Sports Heat Up

It’s a good time of year to be a fan of New Orleans’ sports teams. The Saints (13-3) host a divisional playoff game on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals (11-6) and the Hornets have reeled off six straight wins. The Saints are in the midst of the greatest season in team history. When Byron Scott was […]

Let the Hype Begin!

Saints Will Host Cardinals

I was about to turn the game off when the Cardinals were up 31-10. Good thing I didn’t. I would have missed the highest-scoring game in NFL postseason history. Thanks to a thrilling 51-45 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers, Arizona is bringing quarterback Kurt Warner and his high-octane offense to the Superdome next […]

Packers or Cardinals?

The Green Bay Packers, winners of seven of their last eight games, are one of the hottest teams in football. The Arizona Cardinals are a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance. Which team matches up better with the Saints? I say Arizona. But I don’t think they’ll get by the Packers. Green Bay is […]
