Horrifying images from the NFC championship were seared into our memory after the Rams got a little help from the refs to beat the Saints to advance to the Super Bowl. But, now is really the time to move on and focus on 2019 since the first practice of training camp is Friday, July 26th.

This year’s Black & Gold squad is expected to be right back where they were a year ago. They finished last season 13-3 and were the #1 seed in the NFC playoffs. A super talented roster remains intact and while everyone wants to talk about Drew Brees being a “40-year-old quarterback”, he has shown no signs of a decline in production and continues to shatter NFL records. You don’t have to worry about #9 heading into camp, but here are 5 guys that do have question marks around them:

Center Erik McCoy

Will the 2nd round draft pick be the Saints starting center week 1? The consistent and reliable Max Unger retired at the end of last season which leaves a massive hole up front. Putting that responsibility on a rookie could be too much to handle, but he’s got a pretty good support system around him with Terron Armstead, Larry Warford, Ryan Ramczyk and Andrus Peat on the o-line. Of course, McCoy won’t just be given the job, he will be competing against Cameron Tom and...

Barstool Sports
is being sued over its most iconic image -- Sad Roger -- with the guys who allegedly created the shot of Roger Goodell with a clown nose claiming Barstool has been using it without permission.

The guys behind the suit are Jake Bernier, Kenneth LeMarier and Joseph Bernier ... who claim they created Sad Roger and licensed it to Barstool for a "one-time use in 2015."

The image became the face of Barstool's war against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell when he went after Tom Brady for allegedly deflating footballs during the 2014 NFL season.

The image was a hit with Stoolies -- many of whom rocked Sad Roger towels at the Patriots 2017 home opener. Sports Illustrated reported Barstool spent $140,000 to give away 70,000 towels that day.

MICCOSUKEE, Fl. (WTXL) — New Orleans Saints running back and Miccosukee native, Javorius "Buck" Allen, came back to his hometown for a special event. He hosted Buck Mission Day 2019 which is the first year for the event.

The event featured financial classes for teenagers and adults, arts and crafts, and stem projects, just to name a few.

Allen explained that he thought about holding a football camp but realized that many football players already hold camps, so he decided to do something a little different for his hometown. "For me, I thought of a bigger picture, you know, about parents getting kids to the camp, grandparents and all that. I just came up with a whole day pretty much that helps them fulfill their needs. Get them something that they can't get on a daily basis; free STD testing, free visual, free eye exams, things like that."

It may not be curtains just yet for former New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles. He’s looking for one more season in the NFL after playing for the Philadelphia Eagles the last few years, but it’s an uphill climb for him following several serious recent injuries and his 36th birthday celebration earlier in June.

Sproles posted a video of himself catching passes from Saints quarterback Drew Brees and former Saints backup Chase Daniel (now with the Chicago Bears) to his official Instagram account, which was shared across other social media platforms. He’s one of several players Brees often works out with during the offseason, so this isn’t a new development. It is interesting that Sproles is taking the extra step to publicize his involvement.

By John Newby

Drew Brees is the unquestioned king of the NFC South, but who is next in line for the throne?

Given that Brees is 40 years old, the end of his career is clearly in sight. However, when it comes is yet to be determined. The Saints quarterback is still playing near the top of his game despite showing some occasional signs of his age. Still, his age does bring about some questions.

Specifically, who will be taking over as king of the NFC South? Will it be Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, or even Teddy Bridgewater? New NFL Network analyst DeAngelo Hall sees Winston taking over as the top quarterback, but for Nate Burleson, deciding on the heir apparent isn't a simple matter. ...

By Jason Owens | Yahoo Sports

It’s no surprise that when asked, the New Orleans Saints defensive end would choose Drew Brees as the best quarterback in the NFL.

But in doing so in an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” on Monday, he didn’t limit his case for Brees by simply talking him up.

He took shots at Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes and sent what sounded like unintentional shade at Saints head coach Sean Payton in the process.

Kamara on Ingram leaving in free agency: ‘that’s my boy, always love forever’

Garland Gillen, Sports Managing Editor |

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The Saints backfield will be noticeable different in 2019 with running back Mark Ingram leaving in free agency. After eight years with the Saints, the Heisman Trophy winner signed with Baltimore.

Alvin Kamara forged a close relationship with Ingram in his first two years with the Saints, and was sad to see Ingram go.

“Definitely miss him. I hope he does the same thing, different color, different team. If we play him, I don’t want him to do good. Because I know he’s a gamechanger. That’s my boy, always love forever,” said Alvin Kamara.

I followed that up by asking Kamara if he shed a little tear when he found out Ingram was going to the Ravens.

“Yeah, that’s my guy. He’s a big part of why I had the success that I had, these two years. I can say that without a pause or a stutter. He’s a big reason why I could do the things I’ve done. Thankful for him, and the short amount of time that we had him,” said Kamara.
