Drew Brees nominated for Week 7 FedEx Air Player of the Week Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-21-2014 06:40 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has earned a second nomination this season for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award after the Saints' 24-23 loss Sunday at Detroit.

Before throwing one deadly interception late in the fourth quarter, Brees completed 28 of 45 passes for 342 yards and two touchdowns (a 46-yarder to Kenny Stills and a 13-yarder to Austin Johnson).

The two other nominees are Broncos QB Peyton Manning, who broke Brett Favre's all-time record for touchdown passes in throwing for 318 yards and four touchdowns vs. San Francisco, and Colts QB Andrew Luck, whose 344 yards and two touchdowns helped Indianapolis crush Cincinnati, 27-0.

Pierre Thomas out 2-3 weeks with shoulder injury, per report Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-21-2014 06:36 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas left Sunday's game vs. the Detroit Lions with an injury, and on Monday coach Sean Payton would not comment on Thomas' injury or any other injured player.

However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted early Tuesday morning that Thomas will be sidelined 2-3 weeks due to a shoulder injury that occurred in the loss to the Lions.

Thomas' agent Lamont Smith said he could not confirm or deny the report.

Late implosion overshadows positives in New Orleans Saints' loss at Detroit: Film Study Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-21-2014 06:18 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Sean Payton pointed to the turning point of the "Motown Meltdown" in the New Orleans Saints' 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions as the failed coverage in the secondary resulting in 73-yard touchdown reception by Golden Tate.

It's certainly where the implosion commenced. It wasn't the end-all, be-all of the distressing loss in Week 7. Breakdowns on both sides of the football, as well as a questionable call or two, spurred the demise of the Saints in Detroit.

The horror is painful to watch, so readers' discretion is advised:

Even with shocking loss to Detroit, Saints still very much alive in NFC South Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-21-2014 05:50 PM


Full Story – Examiner.Com


After seven weeks of the 2014 NFL season are almost complete, the New Orleans Saints sit in the 11th spot in the NFC in the playoff race. They are 2-4 after a comeback loss to the Detroit Lions stunned them after their bye week. Even though they are so far back from the six teams that make it into the playoffs from each conference, they're far from out of the race.

The Saints have to figure out their problems and they need to fix them even faster. At 2-4, they could find themselves out of the playoffs by the halfway point of the season. Still, there is a way they're staying in the hunt and it is due to the poor play of the rest of the NFC South.

The Carolina Panthers currently sit atop the division, but they are a mere one game ahead of the Saints. After winning their first two games, the Panthers have gone 1-3-1 in their last five. The most recent loss in week seven was a huge blowout to the Green Bay Packers.

Anatomy of a meltdown: How an ugly 5 minutes at Detroit sent Saints' season back to the brink Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-19-2014 07:24 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Detroit -- Yes, there was that Drew Brees interception, an uncomfortably familiar part of the New Orleans Saints' fourth loss of the season on Sunday at Ford Field.

But the source of the ugly meltdown that led to the Saints' 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions goes beyond just Brees.

All of the Saints' problems that appeared to be vanquished -- and a few new ones, too -- emerged in the final minutes, sending the Saints (2-4) to their seventh consecutive regular-season road loss.

Drew Brees says he let Saints down with late interception in loss to Lions Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-19-2014 07:21 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Detroit -- If the New Orleans Saints had played only three quarters against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Saints quarterback Drew Brees would probably be getting much of the credit.

Instead, a few minutes after the Saints blew a 13-point, fourth-quarter lead to lose to the Lions, 24-23, he was shouldering the blame.

Brees was practically perfect through three quarters. He kicked off the second half by completing six of his first seven passes for 133 yards and a touchdown.

Sean Payton's final presser before the Detroit Lions game Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-18-2014 09:12 AM


Full Story – New Orleans Saints.Com


Does Erik Lorig’s return mean anything to the offense or add anything?

“We will see where he is at. He has had a good week or preparation. His rehab has gone well. The thing that he brings is he has some size and stature to him. Austin (Johnson) has been playing well. It is just a matter of how we see gameday.”

Is there any chance of two fullbacks staying on the roster?


“We will see. They are both on the roster.”

Rob Ryan talks about facing the Detroit Lions Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-18-2014 09:10 AM


Full Story – New Orleans Saints.Com


Did you guys take an extra-long self-scout look during the bye week at the front four and the pressure on the quarterback?

“We took a long look at about everything. Our situational football’s been really poor on defense. So we did that. The lack of sacks, we did go back and look at that. The pressures are up but the sacks are down. But there are a lot of things on the bye week as coaches that you have to look at yourself first. It is scheme first when you look at it, what your players do well, what are they not doing well, so you have to address those and then go forward and get better.”

Can you share what you and your dad talked about in Kentucky?


“Just a lot of good times. He is not doing too well so it was all about him and just getting caught back up and talking about old times and enjoying each other.”

Saints receivers Joe Morgan, Nick Toon doing 'really good,' but game day lineup tough to crack Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-17-2014 08:21 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


There are six receivers on the roster, and the New Orleans Saints typically activate only four on Sundays.

For most of the season, Joe Morgan and Nick Toon have been the odd men out.

Morgan was active in Week 1 when Kenny Stills was out with a hamstring injury. He didn't have any receptions and hasn't played since.

Toon has been active once, at Dallas, but did not play any snaps. The role is a familiar one for Toon, who is in his third year in the league. Morgan played in 14 games in 2012 after bouncing around the practice squad in 2011.

Lions coordinator Joe Lombardi: Drew Brees probably taught me more than I taught him Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-17-2014 08:16 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, who spent seven years as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Saints, said he's tried not to get sentimental as he prepares to play his old team on Sunday.

The Saints (2-3) and Lions (4-2) kick off at Ford Field in Detroit on Sunday.

"The quarterbacks told me that I get fined for every hug, so I'm going to try to keep those to a minimum," Lombardi told Detroit media on Thursday in quotes provided by the Lions. "I'll just try to wave and shake hands."

New Orleans Saints face formidable challenge against Lions defense Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-17-2014 08:14 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


It's not often that a team can register eight sacks in a game. Eight teams in the league, including the New Orleans Saints, haven't even hit that mark yet this season.

So when Jahri Evans and Terron Armstead were asked the last time they could recall such a game happening, they both scratched their heads.

"It had been a while I think," Armstead said.

Added Evans: "It's been a long time."

At least until last Sunday.

New Orleans Saints' coaching staff must find identity, just like players Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-17-2014 08:13 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


When the New Orleans Saints kick off against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday, some familiar faces will be wearing headsets on the opposing sideline.

Joe Lombardi, John Bonamego and Tony Oden each spent multiple seasons on the Saints' staff before advancing their careers elsewhere. Now all three are on Jim Caldwell's first staff in Detroit. And their hirings did not occur by accident. Their championship pedigrees attracted Caldwell.

"I think that's extremely important," Caldwell said. "I think there is quite a few of us on this staff that have been to various different Super Bowls, and I think that it benefits the guys that teach and instruct. They know what it takes to win."

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram back to 100 percent after thumb injury Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-16-2014 09:35 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram had a strong sense of deja vu following the second game of the season.

Ingram took his glove off in the locker room following the Saints 26-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sept 14. He stared at his swollen thumb.

The thumb had hurt throughout the game after he landed on it after a run, but not to the extent that he couldn't play through it.

But he knew it wasn't good looking at it in the moments following the loss. That meant x-rays, which led to a prognosis of a fractured thumb and surgery.

Sean Payton says waiving rookie Khairi Fortt was in the Saints' best interest Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 10-16-2014 09:23 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton didn't have much to say about the decision to cut fourth round draft pick Khairi Fortt last week.

Payton didn't even read it off the list of transactions the Saints over the course of the week, which included placing Jairus Byrd on IR and signing tight end Tom Crabtree. Fortt's release, which occurred Oct. 6, was the first transaction of a busy bye week for the Saints.

"We just felt like it was in our best interest," Payton said when asked about the decision. "It didn't work out for him. I will keep it at that."

Mike D's Top 12 Observations sponsored by Thibodaux Regional Medical Center @thibodauxreg October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


By Mike Detillier

1. NFL teams feed off the energy, focus and proper frame of mind from their head coach. NFL coaches are the face of each team. Just take a look at the NE Patriots with Bill Belichick, Mike Tomlin in Pittsburgh, Rex Ryan with the NY Jets, Chip Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles, Mike McCarthy in Green Bay, Mike McCoy in San Diego and Sean Payton in New Orleans.

Every team and head coach in the NFL goes through a period in which their squad is in a mental funk and the head coach has to snap that team back in the right mental frame and mood. Right now the Saints are not playing with any energy or sense of urgency.

Sean Payton knows his team needs a jump-start and now it is up to him to get this team back in the "winning" groove. And that comes one game at a time. Can't worry about Game #7, Game #10 or playoffs.

It's cliche, but it is true, it is one game at a time. Focus and get your team ready mentally and emotionally for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Coaches Motto: At any level players have to feel you are a part of them and they are a part of you.

It is indeed a crucial moment in 2014 for Sean Payton this week to snap this team out of their funk.. In a line from the movie "Moonstruck" in which Cher slaps Nicholas Cage and utters the line, "Snap out of It."- We are at that moment today.

2. Always a big believer in that "pressure" breaks the football pipe and the NO Saints defensive front have not gotten much of a sniff of a pass rush in 2014.

In the first 4 games this season the Saints have recorded 5 QB. sacks. Last year after the first 4 games the Saints racked up 12 QB. sacks.

The NFL is built around throwing the ball and for the Saints defense to come around they need to find that pass rush element and fast. Only 5 turnovers in the last 15 games, including two playoff games, reflects their lack of a pass rush early on in 2014.

That minus-6 in the giveaway/takeaway stat in 2014 is huge today.

3. Current NFL offensive coordinator on Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

"I have a lot of respect for Rob (Ryan), but like...
