What a week it was for football fans in Louisiana.

Last weekend the Tennessee Titans upset the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to advance to the AFC Championship game.

The architect and general manager of the 2019 version of Titans is former Nicholls State graduate assistant turned linebacker coach for the Colonels Jon Robinson.

Robinson left the coaching ranks once he left the Colonels to get into college scouting and worked his way up to a general manager position and now his team is playing for a spot in the Super Bowl.

Former Nicholls and Northwestern State coach Jay Thomas is also involved in the Titans scouting department as a pregame scout and personnel evaluator.
Then last Sunday afternoon the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans to advance to the AFC Championship game.

Three members of the Chiefs coaching staff -- defensive line coach/running game coordinator Brendan Daly, outside linebacker coach Britt Reid and strength and conditioning coach Travis Crittenden -- have been regulars coaching high school players at the Louisiana Line Camp at Nicholls in Thibodaux each summer for the past few seasons.

New Orleans Saints Vision Has Moved to Next Season

The playoffs are still underway, but the New Orleans Saints vision has moved to next season. Following another disappointing end to the season, the Saints are left with trying to figure out what needs to be done to improve for 2020. One thing is for sure, they will need to load their roster with more weapons, but the team has found itself in a beautiful mess with their quarterbacks.

New Orleans Saints Vision Has Transitioned to 2020

This year, the Saints will no longer have a signed quarterback on their roster. Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taysom Hill are free agents now. Brees has been the starting quarterback with the Saints since 2006. Bridgewater showed he can still manage as a starting quarterback during Drew’s hand injury. It will be interesting to see what the Saints do to remedy this issue...

The Top Offseason Needs for the New Orleans Saints

Another season ended in disappointment for the New Orleans Saints, and now they enter the offseason with a lot of questions to answer. Most tend to get wrapped up in the draft process, but before that comes free agency. No matter how you look at it, there are glaring issues that the team should and could address before getting to both points, and they'll have to also shift around some cap space to be players in March.

Here are a few areas the teams can afford to get better at and address in 2020.

Wide Receiver

The problems the Saints have had at the wide receiver position just didn't happen. It's been evident since the 2017 playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings. Outside of Michael Thomas, the production has just not been there. The team has tried, taking a chance on players like Cameron Meredith, but it hasn't panned out. Quite simply put, this is a group that doesn't scare anyone outside of Thomas. To put Thomas' 1,725 receiving yards in the regular season in perspective, five combined receivers (Ted Ginn Jr., Tre'Quan Smith, Deonte Harris, Austin Carr, and Krishawn Hogan) only managed 692 yards in 2019. Ginn Jr. was fourth on the team with 421 yards behind Alvin Kamara (533) and Jared Cook (705).

Demario Davis named a finalist for NFLPA's Alan Page Community Award

New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis was named a first-team All-Pro, and now he could add another honor to his trophy case. Davis was named one of five finalists for the NFL Players Association’s Alan Page Community Award for his efforts off the field, embracing the New Orleans community and working to enact positive change with his neighbors. The award’s winner will receive a $100,000 donation to a charity of their choosing.

Davis rose to prominence in the wake of a controversial NFL uniform violation fine. The league initially fined him for wearing a headband labeled “Man of God” during an early-season game, which he overturned in appeals. Davis then sold similar headbands in a fund-raiser for a Mississippi hospital, reporting more than $120,000 in donations. He also met with students and faculty at a New Orleans-area elementary school who had supported him during the appeals process.

Re-grading the New Orleans Saints 2017 draft class

By John Sigler | Saints Wire

The New Orleans Saints hit on nearly all of their picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, adding Rookies of the Year on Offense (Alvin Kamara) and Defense (Marshon Lattimore) while finding a future first-team All-Pro right tackle at the end of the first round. Other selections like Marcus Williams and Trey Hendrickson have contributed often, and the other misses still carry their silver linings.

It could have gone very differently. Saints coach Sean Payton was infamously on the phone with Alabama linebacker prospect Reuben Foster, preparing to draft him, when the San Francisco 49ers made a surprising trade up with the division-rival Seattle Seahawks. A serious of off-field incidents later resulted in Foster being waived by the team that picked him.

The Saints were fortunate enough to pick Ryan Ramczyk instead, and he’s proven to be much more than a worthy successor to Zach Strief on the right side — he’s a star in his own right.

If Tom Brady exercises his prerogative to move on from the Patriots in free agency, Jarrett Stidham potentially becomes the starting quarterback, in only his second season. Stidham claims he’s not thinking about that.

“Right now, I can’t really think too much about all of that,” Stidham told Mike Reiss of ESPN.com on Friday. “I have to worry about what I need to do to prepare to enhance my game, to learn as much as I possibly can. That’s the biggest thing I’ve...

On Tuesday night, Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly announced his retirement from the NFL in this heartfelt and articulate video.

McCaffrey opts to skip Pro Bowl; Kamara gets nod

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey has pulled out of the Pro Bowl after a memorable season.

McCaffrey isn't injured. Rather, he decided not to play in the Pro Bowl because Carolina's spring workouts have been moved up two weeks after the team hired a new head coach in Matt Rhule. The team can open camp as early as April 6. The third-year running back wanted enough time to allow his body to recover and be ready for the workouts...

Third year running back Alvin Kamara has now been named to his 3rd straight pro bowl. Kamara had what some say an off year. It is a little drop off from his year 1 and 2 numbers. The biggest drop off was his touchdowns, his rookie year he had 13 touchdowns, year 2 he had 18 touchdowns, and this season he only had 6 touchdowns.

Every year of his career he has amassed 81 receptions. Since year 1 his numbers have slowly declined from 826, 709, to 533 yards this season...
