The Saints and Teddy Bridgewater will have some tough
decisions to make at the end of the season if QB Drew Brees
comes back as good as ever and wants to keep playing!


By J.W. Miller | JW Miller Sports

This just in: Next week the Saints will sit Cam Jordan, Demario Davis, half the offensive line and Latavius Murray, just to make it even with the Cardinals. Breathe deeply and consider that the above is the product of a vivid imagination, although it is almost as preposterous as what we saw Sunday. Because of injuries, the Saints sat Hall of Fame QB Drew Brees, offensive sparkplug Alvin Kamara, rising TE Jared Cook, safety P.J. Williams, WR Tre’Quan Smith and defensive lineman Trey Hendrickson, and they still rolled over the Bears like they were playing the 1987 Spare Bears.

The score was 36-10 with three minutes to go and could have been 48-10 when Sean Payton cleared the bench and the Bears made the final score almost respectable. That kind of performance reflects the team’s sufficient depth to withstand serious injuries to its starting unit, most notably backup QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Cameron Jordan on Dan Patrick Show talks winning and Brees’ return

Coming off that Sunday win on the road in Chicago, Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was on the Dan Patrick Show today talking winning and the return of Brees.

By Roy Anderson | WhoDatDish

Cameron Jordan had a heck of a game on Sunday in Chicago where the Saints manhandled the Bears in a 36-25 Week 7 romp. His day was typical Cameron Jordan, two sacks, two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits on Mitchell Trubisky.

On the year to this point, Jordan is on pace for a career season with 7.0 sacks, 26 tackles, six tackles for loss and 13 QB hits. Sunday he was a presence all game long.

Jordan stopped by the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, Oct. 22, to talk the return or Drew “That’s a very Drew Brees, Sean Payton question, not a Cam Jordan question. Drew comes back when Drew comes back, when he’s healthy and ready to gun sling.”

The New Orleans Saints are back home this Sunday to face the 3-3-1 Arizona Cardinals. The 6-1 Saints have won five straight, including the last two on the road. They've been on this streak not only without injured quarterback Drew Brees, but defeated the Chicago Bears without injured starters Alvin Kamara, Jared Cook, and Tre'Quan Smith as well. Despite being shorthanded, New Orleans scored a season-high 36 points in the win over Chicago. They now take on an Arizona...

If Tom Brady leaves the Patriots, where would he go?

Ever since the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady agreed to a contract extension that isn’t really a contract extension and Brady put his house in Boston up for sale, some have been speculating that Brady won’t be back in New England next year. On Monday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter did more than speculate that 2019 could be Brady’s last year in New England.

Schefter may simply be throwing a bone to Brady and/or to agent Don Yee in order to generate interest...

METAIRIE – They are as different as Hollywood and Hempstead, Long Island, the places they left to begin their careers as New Orleans Saints.

One was the team’s top draft choice, No. 2 overall, a Heisman Trophy winner, a college football champion, a celebrity as much as a running back with a personality to match.

The other was an after-thought, the team’s last draft pick, a seventh-rounder, a compensatory pick no less, No. 252 overall, from an FCS program known as...

Saints release Zach Zenner, Ray-Ray Armstrong

The Saints released running back Zach Zenner, linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong and practice squad quarterback J.T. Barrett.

That leaves the Saints with two open spots on the 53-player roster and two on the practice squad.

Barrett became expendable with Drew Brees returning to practice.

Zenner’s release likely means running back Alvin Kamara‘s injury ankle is improving. The Saints signed Zenner last week with Kamara on the injury report.

Zenner played eight snaps on...

Even without a slew of key offensive players, the New Orleans Saints turned in their best statistical offensive performance of the season in Sunday’s 36-25 drubbing of the Chicago Bears.

They set new 2019 season-highs in points (36), rushing yards (151), time of possession (37:06) and plays run from scrimmage (74). They were efficient, converting seven of their 15 third down attempts and scoring touchdowns on four of their six trips into the red zone. For just the...

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have traded receiver Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots for a second-round draft pick in 2020, according to a person within the NFL.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams were still completing Tuesday's deal, which was first reported by ESPN.

The move signaled the Falcons are already looking to the future just seven weeks into the season. Atlanta (1-6) is mired in a five-game...

Michael Thomas was set to make $1.148 million this season. He held out of training camp to push the Saints toward offering him a new deal that would pay him closer to his worth. The move paid dividends worth millions as the Saints inked Thomas to a five year contract extension worth $100 million, with $61 million guaranteed.

Since entering the league in 2016, Thomas has broken almost every record a wide receiver can. During his rookie season, Thomas broke franchise...

How good is this Saints defense?

Consider the fact that it has never had all of its parts together at any time this season and how good it can be when all are in place.

To start the season, there was no Sheldon Rankins and no David Onyemata. Mario Edwards was also banged up.

Trey Hendrickson started the season on fire. Then, he went down.

Onyemata returned in week two before Rankins came back against Dallas on Sept. 29 after missing the first three games.

The NFL trade deadline is one week away, and the first dominoes are starting to fall as the Atlanta Falcons have traded Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots for a 2020 second round pick. The New Orleans Saints are sure to be buyers rather than sellers at the deadline, but it takes two to tango. Obviously Mickey Loomis and the Saints front office would love to add players like Patrick Peterson, Davante Adams, and Travis Kelce to the team, but that requires those...

METAIRIE, La. -- When the New Orleans Saints ruled out running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Jared Cook on Friday -- in addition to quarterback Drew Brees -- at least half a dozen Saints and NFL analysts made some version of the same decree:

If the Saints go into Chicago and win this week, you might as well hand Sean Payton the Coach of the Year award on the spot.

Well, the Saints didn’t just beat the Bears. They dismantled them with a 36-25 win that wasn’t...
