If only we had people with sources close to any number of Saints...

The fact that they can't come up with the corresponding move is pretty telling. All too often, someone else has to do their work for them.

Also, the PFT article on the story incorrectly says the reporter is from the NOLA FOX station. Guess even they think it should have been a reporter covering the Saints to break it.
Some organizations keep things shut down. The Saints are one of them.

Typically, when you see “source,” that is often an agent for the player. Those agents are national and that’s why you see Schefter, Rapaport, etc break most stories like this.

Sounds like a bunch of excuses to me. Underhill was solid.

Also, I out-scooped all of them by posting it to SR before any of them could so much as RT. And I don't get paid anything to do it and have no sources at all.

One of them has since posted her meal, though.

If the Saints are counting on T’eo, coming off the couch for the last year, to help stop the run vs San Fran... they’re in big trouble. T’eo doesn’t have the speed to beat any of the 49ers RBs to the edge.
That’s why it’s imperative for Jordan, Davenport, etc to maintain their assignments. They set the edge and let the beef in the middle maintain the gaps. Our D line is one of the best at knowing their assignments and executing. We will be fine.

It’s not an excuse. It’s how the business works.

You pointed out one Saints beat reporter from the past. I can point out dozens in virtually every NFL market. The game is different when it comes to transactions.
