  1. What does the term 'a number 1 wr' mean?

    https://thumbs.gfycat.com/SplendidSpottedBeardedcollie-mobile.mp4 Look me in the eye and tell me Ryan Fitzpatrick-to-Stevie Johnson doesn't get the blood going. You can't.
  2. Drew Brees will return for 2020 season

    love you too, buddy. No Rams game this year, but maybe in the playoffs??? See you then
  3. Offseason Talk:

    I know Rankins didn't get to play much this year and he was already recovering from a serious Achilles injury. Did anyone pay attention to him? I'm concerned that his ceiling might have shrunk with that injury and he won't make it to a second contract with us. If that's the case then that'll be really disappointing not because of draft position but because he really was showing a breakout in year 3 before his injury. Some of his highlights from that Minnesota game in 2018 were insane.
  4. Redskins Release Josh Norman

    I know it was obvious but I had my own Burnt joke ready to go so kindly screw you, sir
  5. RE: Payton's comments about not being able to retain all 3 guys next year. If 2/3 is an option I think Bridgewater is the odd man out, much as I appreciated him in the interim (and admittedly I was hating on the guy early on). I don't agree that we should move on from Brees yet (costly turnovers against the Vikings aside) and I really want to take a swing on Taysom Hill. I just like his upside and if the Saints miss on him and plunges this franchise into hell while they search for their next qb then so be it.
  6. None of it was easy, either. There are some games, that season included, where the Saints offense makes it look really easy (recent example would be the Colts game this year). That game however, I remember how hard it felt to get every single one of those yards. That very first drive I had a bad feeling because it didn't feel as it easy as it usually had that year, and then Pierre Thomas got KO'd and that's about the time I got real nervous. SOME of it was completely fluky though; Jimmy Graham should never have scored on that one super long touchdown at the end of the game.
  7. What's an NFL season that was just weird/unusual

    Can confirm but without as much hyperbole. Brees tore his meniscus early in the season and played through it all year, finishing with a career high in INTs thrown. I thought they really had something with rookie UDFA Chris Ivory, who went down right before the playoffs leading to the ineptitude of Ladell Betts and Julius Jones for the playoffs (purchase your ironic Betts or Jones Saints jersey today!). In Week 7 against Cleveland, the Saints got blownout by a Coly Mccoy-led Browns team that generated 210 yards of offense, 60 of which came on a 4th down run from punter Reggie Hodges (or, 'the token black punter in Madden that never had a photo') (bonus: that same Browns team would blow out the New England Patriots two weeks later). Darren Sharper was an All Pro in 2010 with a statline of 16 tackles and 1 fumble recovery in 8 games played (1 start). Seriously. On the surface of it the defense put up some decent stats but then they played against the lifeless corpse of Brett Favre (who would finally retire for good at the end of the year), Colt McCoy, Jimmy Clausen TWICE (nearly losing to an eventual 2-14 Panthers team in week 4 at home...), a 37 year old Jon Kitna, and... Max Hall of the Cardinals in his only career win in the NFL and THIS happened; such absurdity was commonplace all year and culminated in that most famous of touchdown runs in Seattle.
  8. Browns WR OBJ undergoes core muscle surgery

    some commentary on that line break if you please
  9. I like the bolded the most and hope it comes true.
  10. Cam Newton '15 vs Lamar Jackson '19

    Obviously? Where do you think you are
  11. NFC West going to be real fun for the foreseeable future.
  12. I don't know if the Salary cap logistics will work out, but I hope we retain Janoris Jenkins next year.
  13. Chiefs and Mahomes are going to be doing this to the league for a long time me thinks
  14. We need a Saints forum general thread because i don't know where else to put this. Just watched the highlights of the Titans/Ravens game and Kenny V had an all hands INT on an out route -- if the Titans complete this Cinderella story of theirs I'm gonna be very happy for him seeing as how he was on the cusp of not being able to find a team/role after the Saints released him because the Safety market is a weird one (+ I remember him looking like he'd been zapped of any speed he used to have in his last few seasons with the Saints). We also have Stills with the Texans if anyone's keeping tabs on former Saints on teams still in the playoffs.
  15. Divisional Round: MIN@SF (1:35PM PST)

    After beating the Saints, the rest of the playoffs gotta feel like you're playing with house money eh? Already got what you came for and you didn't have to wait till February, either.
  16. Rhule Finalizing deal to be Panthers HC

    wow the Cowboys drafted the Jimmy Smith? Imagine if they'd got to use him at all
  17. Divisional: TEN@BAL

    No disrespect to the Titans (congrats again on the New England win) or the Texans, but I'm going to feel jipped if we don't have Chiefs Ravens in the AFC Championship. A division rivalry in the conference title game should be incredible... but also nah, there's only one marquee match-up left in that conference
  18. That Seattle game in 2013 was fine. Saints were outplayed by a better team but played their tails off at the same time. Can they not just lose like that if they’re gonna flop anyway ? Unbelievable. Minnesota a really good team and Saints offence and defense, especially defense, played like they wanted it especially at the end. At least this was a wildcard game ? Stings slightly less. I’m gonna so mad if Minny just gets blown out next week anyway
  19. WC: Titans@Patriots

    Wow. I'll take my crow with a side of humility.
  20. WC: BUF@HOU

    Whoever wins I'd like to see some heroics from Allen or Watson (or both). First career playoff W for somebody today, this is how legacies get started. Good luck to both teams
  21. I've got some good news for ya, Arizona ain't even in the playoffs! I don't know what to think at this point, for all the playoff heartbreak the Saints have only ever had a first round exit once but that was also the stupidest thing of all time. It's been a long time since this team was laughed out of the playoffs (Chicago, '06) and even that was a 4 point game entering the fourth, so win or lose I expect Payton will have this team ready to fight tooth and nail and if Minnesota wins it will be because they earned it. And lord help me if the Saints get some questionable or downright ugly calls in their favor and I catch any of you smugly parroting the same rhetoric the Rams fans gave us last year. Quietly acknowledge our good fortune and move on
  22. wonder what Marcus Williams is thinking right now. I'm expecting a huge game from him.
  23. Playoff Predictions thread

    Can you get some more action on the Titans? I'm trying to go long the Pats at their cheapest, like -3 or something. If you could tighten the spread a couple points so I can get in I'd be grateful!
  24. and I don't know how far this team is going in the playoffs but mark my words: Janoris Jenkins is going to make plays this postseason.
