NEW ORLEANS — If you want to be in that number and watch the Saints play in the Superdome, get vaccinated.

That’s the message as the Black and Gold prepares to take the field in front of a full stadium this upcoming season.

It was a little lonely in the dome last year.

“Who Dats” were few and far between.

Coronavirus restrictions even kept Saints superfan Leroy Mitchell, aka “Whistle Monster” out of the dome for the first time in 26 years.

“I haven’t been in the Superdome for over 300 and something days, man,” Mitchell said. “It’s odd.”

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has experienced the highs and lows of an NFL player’s journey. He has recovered from a major injury early in his career and also played with a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Drew Brees.

Bridgewater admits that he took a lot of information during his time with Brees. He joined the All Things Covered podcast with Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden earlier this week to discuss his career path.

The former Louisville star felt that Brees had a big impact on his career. He said Brees taught him to develop a daily routine when preparing each week.

“My two years there taught me the real meaning of valuing your process and honing in on your process,” Bridgewater said on the podcast. “I tell everybody, I watched Drew Brees be the same guy for two years straight. I am talking about eating breakfast at a certain time … This guy was so routine that it meant a lot to me because I was still a young guy.”

NFL takes a gamble on the Saints, but it’s more of an educated guess

The post-Drew Brees New Orleans Saints are a complete and total crapshoot. 2021 feels like one of two things could happen. Either they come and burn out spectacularly or they stay competitive. There’s really no in between. Either way, to a degree, the NFL wins. Because while the NFL’s hatred of the Saints tends to be overstated, NFL fans’ hatred of Saints fans is decidedly not.

With five primetime games for the Saints in 2021, the NFL is clearly hedging its bets on New Orleans. For those who need a reminder, the NFL can flex two Sunday Night Football games between Weeks 5 and 10 and any...

The New Orleans Saints are currently passing the torch presumably to quarterback Jameis Winston after decades of future Hall of Famer Drew Brees. The work ethic of Brees has led the Saints to years of success and wins, but now with Winston at the helm can he pick up where Brees left off?

Being the successor to one of the best quarterbacks of all time doesn't happen often. But Winston has done everything he can this offseason to make sure he is successful next season - he has spent this offseason with teammates, trainers, and even teaching the youth about the game of football.

The New Orleans Saints are hopeful to see a packed house for the 2021 season, but it might take a COVID vaccine to be in that number.

Saints officials will be monitoring vaccination rates and are considering a requirement of proof of vaccination for fans to enter games, according to a report from WWL-TV.

“We’ve got to be careful that all of the fans that are coming into that facility are vaccinated accordingly, so that we don’t get a COVID spread,” said Superdome Commission Chairman Kyle France. “That’s very, very important.”

The Saints hosted several games with no fans in attendance in...

The New Orleans Saints have added a defensive back!

That’s the good news. Bad news? It’s not veteran cornerback Richard Sherman. Instead, it’s former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun safety Deuce Wallace.

Wallace is the son of former University of Louisiana quarterback Donnie Wallace, and last played for the Ragin’ Cajuns in 2019, where according to the UL biography, Wallace:

This is likely nothing to get too excited about, as it’s most likely just a move to add a camp body to the Saints roster. Wallace should be considered a long-shot to make the team at this point.

The New Orleans Saints dipped into the pool of Louisiana talent, signing former UL safety Deuce Wallace, according to a league source.

Wallace walked on to the Ragin' Cajuns football team after a standout career at St. Thomas More in Lafayette.

He earned regular playing time on special teams and defense in his final two seasons at UL, finishing his career with 52 tackles, 1 sack and 1 interception.

Wallace was named a team captain for his senior season. He last played in 2019.

The Saints will begin their annual rookie minicamp this weekend at their Metairie training facility. Their...

Let’s look at the situation for the New Orleans Saints at defensive end.

Trey Hendrickson left in free agency to join the Cincinnati Bengals for a huge payday after a career year.

The jury may still be out on 2018 1st round pick Marcus Davenport (74 tackles, 12 sacks, 15 starts).

Proven star Cameron Jordan may or may not have a lot of gas in his tank as he enters his age 32 season.

Carl Granderson, undrafted, enters his third season as a promising but mostly unproven pass rusher.

Former University of Houston defensive end Payton Turner was the first round pick of the Saints this year...

Despite the offseason retirement of future Hall of Famer Drew Brees, the NFL still showed some respect to the New Orleans Saints when they released the 2021 regular season schedule. The Saints have five games in front of a Prime Time television audience, tied for most in the league. Their season opening contest against the Green Bay Packers at home will also be the Fox National Game of the Week.

New Orleans will also play two games on a holiday. The Saints will be part of the league's normal slate of games on Halloween, which falls on a Sunday. For the third time in four years, New...

Fantasy Forecast: Can Tim Tebow Match Taysom Hill's Value?

Tim Tebow played his last NFL game over 3,000 days ago. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner last appeared with the Philadelphia Eagles trying to make the final 53-man roster as a quarterback in the pre-season. Seven years later, Tebow will reunite with his college head coach Urban Meyer in Jacksonville, but this time at a new position, tight end.

Reports linked Tebow to New Orleans to play a similar role as Taysom Hill does today. Mike Detillier shared with the Bayou Blitz that Saints Head Coach Sean Payton approached the two-time National Champion to play a new hybrid role.

The 2021 NFL schedule was finally released. Many experts are fixated on the strength of schedules to project how their teams will perform. A more accurate factor to watch is when the matchups take place during the year. Another factor to consider is trends on how a particular team performs during different segments of a season.

Sean Payton is 143-81 in fourteen seasons as head coach of the New Orleans Saints. That excludes 2012 when Payton served his suspension. The Saints are 49-15 over the last four seasons, all resulting in NFC South championships.

UDFAs with the best chance to make the 53-man roster

The first undrafted free agent the Saints sign was Syracuse defensive back Trill Williams. The versatile Williams can line up all over the defensive backfield, starting multiple games at both nickel and outside cornerback during his time at Syracuse. He has also been known to play special teams at time, returning a blocked punt for a touchdown during his Freshman year. His versatility and the Saints lack of cornerbacks will mean Williams has a very good shot at making the roster.

If Williams is able to make the 53-man roster, he would be more likely to put in work in special teams during...

BetMGM: Saints favored to beat Packers by less than a field goal

Things could change in a hurry, but for now the oddsmakers at BetMGM like the New Orleans Saints to win their Week 1 game with the Green Bay Packers — but barely. BetMGM opened by slightly favoring the Saints (-2.5) against Green Bay, with an over/under tentatively set at 50.5. That suggests a final tally in the neighborhood of Saints 26, Packers 24.

It would be a setback from last year’s higher-scoring matchup, when the Packers left town after a 37-30 victory. That was the Pack’s first win in New Orleans since 1995, and the first of Aaron Rodgers’ career.

But it’s far from certain that...

The New Orleans Saints have finally scored another game on Halloween, and it’s a safe bet that many fans are already planning out their costumes. If the Superdome is able to return to full capacity, there should be all manner of ghouls, ghosts, and characters crowding the stands.

This time around the Saints will be hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the late afternoon spot, barring a flex to Sunday night, of course. While colorful costumes can usually be found dotted among the audience at most Saints home games, fans tend to go the distance on Halloween.
