Mike Detillier: Some old school football

By Mike Detillier / Sports Correspondent

The matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints is what many of us love to see.

It is “old school” football, winning in the trenches, running the ball, getting immense pressure on the opposing quarterback and stopping the run, and in many phases the Saints and 49ers are looking in the mirror when facing one another.

But where they really mirror one another is up front along the defensive lines.

When former NFL star safety John Lynch left the FOX booth to be the general manager with the San Francisco 49ers he put great capital in landing top college defensive linemen and the 49ers now have five former first-round defensive linemen on the roster.

The 49ers have used first-round picks in recent years on Nick Bosa, DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead and Solomon Thomas. Then last spring the 49ers traded a second round pick in the 202-0 draft to the Kansas City Chiefs for Dee Ford, who the Chiefs selected in Round 1 in the 2014 draft.

For the second time this year, the 49ers spent a week away from home between a pair of games on the other side of the country. For the first time this year, receiver Emmanuel Sanders was part of that road trip.

“It was really good for team bonding,” 49ers receiver Emmanuel Sanders told PFT by phone after Sunday’s 48-46 win in New Orleans. “We play as a team, and we play off each other very well.”

As to whether the plan to stay in the time zone where both games (at...

49ers vs Saints: Week 14 quick observations

  • News source: Don Kellum

It was a classic Saints-49ers game that featured a roller coaster of emotions and fireworks that ended in typical fashion with heartbreak for one of the fan bases. Today it was the Saints who were left stunned as they were unable to finish the job after going up early in the game.

The offense for both teams looked unstoppable at times as they combined to put up 94 points with the final three coming via the foot of 49ers kicker Robbie Gould as time expired to give...

2 Ups and 2 Downs from yesterday’s loss to the 49ers

  • News source: Chris Dunnells

That was absolutely brutal. And it felt too reminiscent of wounds that still hadn’t fully healed, but more on that in a bit.

It was still a roller coast of a game, with plenty of “Ups” and “Downs” along the way, though. Here are a few that stood out:

Down: Injuries

The New Orleans Saints were already down two of their three starting linebackers and their starting left guard before opening kickoff. By the end of the game, Marcus Davenport, Sheldon Rankins, and...

Beignets and Café au Lait: Backs Against the Wall

Good morning Y’all

As always, for our novice readers or non-New Orleanians, welcome!

Let’s start with some definitions:

Beignets (English: /bɛnˈjeɪ/; French: [bɛɲɛ], ben-YAY literally bump) are distinctly New Orleans, a delicacy intimately connected to the city’s rich French heritage. Best enjoyed heavily powdered with sugar.

Café au lait (/ˌkæfeɪ oʊ ˈleɪ, kæˌfeɪ, kə-/; French: [kafe olɛ]; French for “coffee with milk”) is a delicious New Orleans way to start...

Let's overreact to Week 14 in the NFL: The Super Bowl LIV chase is wide-open

NEW ORLEANS -- You couldn't watch Sunday's breathless 49ers-Saints game without concluding that either of those teams could beat the other anywhere, anytime. This is an overreactions column, but that is most definitely not an overreaction.

The game saw two of the NFL's top offensive playcallers, Kyle Shanahan and Sean Payton, trading haymakers all afternoon. It made one of the league's best defenses look as if it was using only 10 guys. It literally lived up to the...

Drew Brees: “Would have been nice to have” Jared Cook all game

  • News source: Josh Alper

The Saints didn’t get much from tight end Jared Cook in Sunday’s game against the 49ers, but what they got was pretty helpful.

Cook caught two passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter. He took a shot to the head on the second touchdown and suffered a concussion that knocked him out for the rest of the afternoon.

He missed a wild game that the 49ers won 48-46 and quarterback Drew Brees said after the contest that the Saints missed having Cook as...

Home-field advantage in NFC may not be as important this year

As the 49ers, Seahawks, and Saints jostle for the top seed in the NFC and postseason home-field advantage in the playoffs, maybe they should be careful what they wish for.

With Sunday’s 48-46 I-thought-the-AFL-folded matchup between San Francisco and New Orleans, the opening round of the round robin between the Saints, Seahawks, and 49ers concluded. And the road teams are 3-0.

The Seahawks lost at home to the Saints, the 49ers lost at home to the Seahawks, and now...

Saints by the Numbers: Brees’ big day can’t deliver victory

NEW ORLEANS – Ten times before Sunday, Drew Brees has passed for five touchdowns in a game. Each of those times, his team won.

Brees’ NFL-record 11th game of five passing scores was not enough on Sunday as the Saints fell 48-46 to the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Brees already had the NFL record for most games with 5+ touchdown passes. Peyton Manning is second with nine games.

Brees also became the eighth player in NFL history – and the...

On the day 46 Saints points was not enough, 'that's on the defense'

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

Forty six points ought to do the trick — it always had for the New Orleans Saints at home, anyway, until Sunday’s 48-46 loss against the San Francisco 49ers.

This marked the first time in franchise history, regular season or playoffs, that the Saints scored 46 points at home and lost a game. The previous high watermark was the 40 points they scored in last year’s season-opening loss to Tampa Bay. The 2013 Dallas Cowboys are the only team in NFL history to have...

49ers TE George Kittle's secret to success in New Orleans? Possibly this New Orleans-born fan's gift

  • News source: Staff report

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had a solid game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The reason? Outside of his size and skill level, it might be due to a necklace made out of gator feet a fan sent him ahead of the highly-anticipated NFC clash to wear protection while in New Orleans.

The third-year veteran caught 6 passes on 8 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the third quarter of the 49ers' 48-46 win over...
