  1. https://www.nola.com/expo/sports/erry-2018/12/4cfcc551994528/breaking-down-the-crazy-stats.html “We accomplished our first goal being division champion, so that’s one championship down for the year,” Ingram said. “So we’re trying to build a stride to get better so we can accomplish our big goals.” Ingram plainly laid out what that big goal was in a video posted to his Instagram account Monday (Dec. 10). In it, he showed the new division title banner hanging on the wall, then he spun around and zoomed in on the Saints’ 2009 Super Bowl Champion banner hanging on the opposite wall. “We’re coming for that big boy next,” Ingram said in the video. https://www.nola.com/saints/2018/12/nfc-south-championship-just-the-first-of-many-goals-on-the-saints-checklist.html Ingram going to break Deuce's club record for TDs. https://www.nola.com/saints/2018/12/mark-ingram-dragging-a-buccaneers-defender-a-fitting-way-to-tie-deuce-mcallister-td-record.html Eagles and Doug Pederson going to snatch RB Boston Scott from us. For those who don't know, Pederson played at ULM in Monroe and coached high school Calvary Baptist in Shreveport before getting back in the NFL. So he's got some pretty significant Louisiana roots even though he's originally from Washington.
  2. This is a snippet from an article that disparages the Trump / White House stance on climate change and the use of fossil fuels. Yet, does anyone believe this? One audience member asked whether the U.S. government accepted the urgency embedded in the United Nations’ recent report: “Do you believe that we have 12 years to save the planet and civilization as we know it?”
  3. Bears defense was stellar tonight. Glad to be in the driver's seat. WHO DAT!!!
  4. Referees in the game between the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys did not penalize Jaylon Smith for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Alvin Kamara last week, but the league office did. According to an ESPN report, the NFL fined Smith $26,739 for the hit on Kamara, which occurred on a third down play in the fourth quarter of the Saints' 13-10 loss. The Saints punted on the next play with 9:35 remaining in the game, and Dallas ground out nearly seven minutes of the game clock on the ensuing drive. Kamara briefly went into the Saints locker room after the hit, but returned to the field for the Saints' final offensive possession. Smith said this about the hit to Dallas media members Thursday (Dec. 6): “It’s the last gladiator sport. As I was going to tackle him he turned his body at the last second and I hit him. I hit him. I put my arms out to hit him and there was some contact. But, like I said, it’s the game that we love and definitely no intentions to play the game the wrong way. I’ve been taught well.” Smith plans to appeal the fine, according to the ESPN report.
  5. Cam Jordan was lying comfortably on one of the giant bean bag chairs in the New Orleans Saints locker room, eyes closed, when a statistic was brought to his attention: In their last four games, the Saints have recorded 20 sacks. https://www.nola.com/saints/2018/12/what-a-rush-the-saints-have-recorded-20-sacks-in-their-last-four-games.html
  6. No surprise here. The ex-girlfriend of Reuben Foster, who told police he attacked her in February, then testified under oath that she had lied to the police at that time, now says it was actually on the witness stand that she was lying and the original story she told to the police was the truth. Elissa Ennis said on Good Morning America that she was lying in court when she said Foster never struck her. “I was not telling the truth. I was not telling the truth,” Ennis said. Ennis said she lied under oath because she loved Foster and didn’t want to end his NFL career. “I did what I had to do for the person I loved. I thought he would change. Anybody in my position would do the same,” Ennis said. So what actually happened between the two of them in February? She now says her account to the police was accurate. “He dragged me down the stairs two or three times, he punched me in my face two or three times, pulled my hair, kicked me, spit on me,” Ennis said. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/reuben-fosters-ex-girlfriend-now-says-she-was-lying-when-she-recanted-previous-allegation/ar-BBQzTzE?li=BBnba9I&ocid=mailsignout
  7. New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead returned to practice on Wednesday (Dec. 5), the first time he’s participated with his teammates since suffering a pectoral muscle injury in a Nov. 11 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Armstead sat out the past three games, but assuming he suffers no setbacks this week, his participation on Wednesday is a good sign he’ll be available for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Armstead was practicing during the portion of practice open to media, but the practice report released later Wednesday will detail whether he was limited or a full participant. Meanwhile, wide receiver Michael Thomas was present but not participating while media was present. The practice report should provide clarity about his status. Right tackle Ryan Ramczyk was also present at practice Wednesday despite leaving last Thursday’s loss to the Cowboys with his arm in a sling. https://www.nola.com/saints/2018/12/terron-armstead-returns-to-saints-practice.html
  8. Good to see how communicative the DBs are and how much they are trying to help him. Hopefully that will limit any busts. Whomever is opposite Lattimore is going to get picked on and that's just the nature of the beast. He'll have to be mentally strong to stay with it, compete and continue to get better game by game. Truth is that PJ is an easy target too. He's always near his man, but the receiver almost always makes the play. Our DLine play has been very, very good and we'll need that to continue. https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/sports/saints/article_e891c8e2-f8a1-11e8-8b91-ff508e3c0ba1.html
  9. The game is in Tampa and the Bucs are probably feeling pretty decent about themselves after winning two in a row. Division opponent. Nonetheless, we should win this game. I strongly expect SP and the offense to get back in rhythm after a dud last week.
  10. We talked about him extensively pre-draft with some bright, flashing warning signs. Seems like, for now, he's turned it around and hopefully it sticks. http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/25426510/dallas-cowboys-randy-gregory-talks-being-real-bad-place
  11. He’s hurt. Got hurt pretty bad in the first game. Remember that season Drew played through a MCL? He was never listed, but it clearly impacted him. Rodgers’ injury is worse. I see this firing more more about personnel decisions and a rift between Rodgers and McCarthy for some of those moves / non-moves. No one can deny McCarthy’s success from 06 to, say 13. He’ll be at the top of the list for the MANY jobs that are opening this offseason, ala Andy Reid.
  12. As some others have mentioned, I thought the offensive game plan was the worst we've seen all season, but you do have to give credit to Dallas. They were physical as hell. That LB Vander Esch looked like a young Brian Urlacher out there. On one play toward the right sideline he ran down Kamara and stopped him for a minimum / one yard gain that in any other game would have been a 5+ yarder. We had Kamara running A LOT last night, in motion, on sweeps, and I thought he was winded. Without very viable passing options outside of MT, we need Kamara. Just like last year when he got knocked out in the Falcons game, our game plan was completely F*cked. This is super important going into the playoffs because I don't want another 2011 9ers game where we lose our RB and we're left scrambling. With the physicality of this game I kept thinking we needed to get more Ingram. Good news is the defense played well and the DLine still looks damn strong. Dennis Allen MUST find something to do to help the other corner. Apple is just getting abused. PJ isn't much better, I think Apple's just the easier target. Not worried. We lost to the Cowboys in 09. Like Herb said, we probably needed this one to, perhaps, remind us how quickly you can get beat and in the playoffs, you're out.
  13. Redskins double down: Redskins senior VP of player personnel Doug Williams opened up Thursday about the team's decision to claim linebacker Reuben Foster off waivers, despite the pending domestic assault charges against him. Williams, who also played quarterback for the Redskins, said he and the team knew there would be backlash for the decision, but said Foster deserved to have his case properly examined. “Oh yeah, we knew that was going to happen, and like I said, rightfully so with all the stuff that is going on in this country," Williams said on The Team 980 . “We’ve got people who are in high, high, high, high places that have done far worse, and if you look at it realistically, they’re still up there. This is small potatoes [compared to] a lot of things out there. But at the same time it’s a big issue in America today, whether or not it’s in football, whether or not it’s in everyday life, whether or not it’s in politics, it’s out there.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/redskins-exec-doug-williams-reuben-foster-allegations-small-potatoes-compared-to-other-things/ar-BBQgz2J?li=BBnba9I&ocid=mailsignout
  14. Oh Redskins.... ormer San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was claimed off waivers by the Washington Redskins Tuesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25394305/former-49ers-lb-reuben-foster-claimed-redskins
  15. He actually played most of his NCAA career standing up and SP said when we drafted him that Davenport would have to learn how to play with his hand in the dirt, but that we would also use him doing things he is most comfortable with.
