Saints coaching staff receives highest vote of confidence in NFC

By John Sigler | Saintswire

There figures to be intense competition in the NFC as usual, as teams hope to represent the conference in the Super Bowl. With the New Orleans Saints on the trail for payback after coming up just short of a second title bid, and the Los Angeles Rams hoping everyone’s forgotten how pathetic an effort they made in last year’s contest, there’s a whole host of teams looking to make a deep run into the playoffs.

But some teams have advantages their peers can’t enjoy. In this case, the confidence in their coaching staff. Some coaching staffs have broken up this offseason with some coaches leaving for other jobs and others being shown to the door. The Saints came out largely intact, retaining everyone but the special teams staff — an area that needed some improvement, especially in the return game. ...

Mike Freeman's 10-Point Stance: Latest Buzz on Most Impactful NFL Stories

NFL teams are on vacation, but we here at 10-Point Stance headquarters never stop working.

We have two sayings that guide us in these seemingly quiet times:

1. Slow feet don't eat.

2. Slow texting leads to vexing.

In this expanded special edition, we look at storylines for all 32 teams. Particularly, what each team accomplished this offseason, what their hopes are for the coming year, and if those dreams can come close to matching reality. Think of this as The Bachelor but with football.

One pattern that has emerged heading into this season is that many teams, including the superpowers, are in some state of flux. The Saints are going to a more traditional single-star running back system instead of splitting the carries, as they have recently. The Patriots are playing for the first time since 2009 without tight end Rob Gronkowski. There remains at least some uncertainty about the knee of Rams back Todd Gurley. The Packers have reconfigured their front office, coaching staff and offense.

New Orleans Saints: Most surprising 2019 offseason move?

  • 30

By Rebecca Mills | NFLSpinZone

The New Orleans Saints usually run a pretty steady ship but sometimes they surprise us. Which offseason move was the most surprising, though?

There are times when NFL franchises surprise fans with the moves they make. For the New Orleans Saints, the 2019 offseason has been relatively tame. For the most part, the team has managed to keep most of their roster intact and even made some moves during free agency. Nevertheless, they did pull a few surprises — but which move was their biggest surprise this offseason?

The Saints are a team that doesn’t make many risks. If they do, their risks usually end up paying off. One such risk was trading up into the second round of the NFL Draft. While the team has always been aggressive, Sean Payton surprised everyone by trading up with such limited capital at their disposal. ...

Saints' Gayle Benson I'm Stickin' with 'Owner' Title

  • 112

Gayle Benson says she has no plans to change her title as "owner" of the New Orleans Saints and the NO Pelicans ... but insists she's sensitive to the concerns of the players.

Gayle's late husband, Tom Benson, bought the Saints in 1985 and the Pelicans in 2012 -- and she took over when he passed away in March 2018.

As we previously reported, several NBA teams and the NBA league office are moving away from the term "owner" out of racial sensitivity ... so the New Orleans Advocate asked Benson if she plans on following suit.

Benson told the Advocate she has no plans on making a title change -- though she considers herself "less of an owner and more of a caretaker of incredible assets."

She also issued a statement saying she hopes players aren't offended by the "owner" title -- and she's open to listening to their concerns.

P.J. Williams, David Onyemata suspensions off the table?

By Roy Anderson | WhoDatDish

All offseason we’ve been waiting for decisions on suspensions for Saints P.J. Williams and David Onyemata. With nothing up to this point, they may be in the clear.

Two things have been hanging over the Saints this offseason on the legal front involving possible suspensions for two players. P.J. Williams for an arrest for DWI and David Onyemata for possession of marijuana. There’s still a chance the NFL could levy some punishment on either or both men but for now, it’s looking like good news.

P.J. Williams was arrested in the early morning hours of January 23, not long after the Saints loss to the Los Angeles Rams in that controversial NFC Conference Championship Game. The charges were doing 80 in a 50 mph zone, improper lane change, failure to signal, careless driving and driving while intoxicated.

That was the last we heard on that matter until a report from Olivia Prentzel of The Times-Picayune. P.J. Williams had appeared in court on Feb 27 to plead not guilty to all five counts. Williams refused a breathalyzer test at the scene. ...

By Adam Rank | Analyst |

Where does your franchise stand heading into 2019? Adam Rank will set the table by providing a State of the Franchise look at all 32 teams over the next few weeks, zeroing in on the key figures to watch and setting the stakes for the season to come.

Members of the Saints organization, fans of the team around the world and those who boycotted the Super Bowl because, well, you know why.

It's been the best of times and the worst of times for Saints fans in recent years. New Orleans currently enjoys a level of football prosperity it has never seen. From a record-setting quarterback to a running back who is the human equivalent to a cheat code. But at the same time, the Saints have suffered the type of stinging playoff loss no fan base should ever endure. And not only once, but twice! However, New Orleans will answer the call like it always does as it moves on to 2019.

How the Saints got here

Let's take a quick look back at the highs and lows of the 2018 season. ...

Saints’ Taylor Stallworth trying to make a name (and a number) for himself in Year 2

Don’t get it twisted, Taylor Stallworth is as big a fan of now former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Tyler Davison as anybody, but that is not why he made the switch.

Yes, that is Davison’s old No. 95 jersey Stallworth is lugging around on the Saints practice fields, but it wasn’t his first choice when he made the switch from the No. 76 uniform he wore as an undrafted rookie out of South Carolina last season.

After a strong debut season as a rotational piece on the New Orleans defensive interior, Stallworth wanted to call back to those college days by switching to the number he wore with the Gamecocks. At least, that was the plan until Malcom Brown signed.

“What number is he going to get? Well, he had 90 with the Patriots,” Stallworth said. “Then they let Tyeler go to the Falcons. What number’s available now? I don’t want to get 95, Tyeler’s my dog.” ...
