  1. I'm too young to have seen him play, but I'm aware of his greatness... Rest in Power Mr. Sayers...
  2. The LSU homer in me wants to scream yes to OBJ but I agree w/ above, he's a total 'me-first' selfish player for the reasons described above, and honestly, it's like he's set the world on fire as a WR the past several seasons, it feels like he's been milking that one-handed grab gravy train for as long as he can. If we didn't have Sanders on the roster, I'd really be worried w/ missing that vet presence on the field, but I think we should be ok, and here's to hoping one of the young'uns (I'm looking at you Calloway), steps up big time. Too bad I'll be occupied during the game tonight, so I'll be glancing at my phone when I can...
  3. Welp, looks like he's gonna miss some time... it's going to be up to Sanders and the young'uns to step up BIG TIME... https://www.nola.com/sports/saints/article_d38f7eae-f7a4-11ea-a551-0f11ae8e2f3c.html Saints receiver Michael Thomas expected to miss several weeks: report BY LUKE JOHNSON | STAFF WRITER New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas could be sidelined for the next several weeks with a high ankle injury, according to an NFL Network report. Thomas left the Saints 34-23 win late in the fourth quarter with an apparent ankle injury. He limped off the field ahead of the two-minute warning after teammate Latavius Murray clipped the back of his legs at the end of a run while Thomas was engaged in a block. Thomas did not return to the field, but was not spotted seeking medical attention on the sidelines. An earlier report indicated Thomas would try to play through the injury, but the injury was worse than originally thought and could force Thomas to miss a chunk of the season. The reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year is coming off one of his least productive games as a Saint. His three catches matched his career low and his 17 receiving yards were his second-lowest career total in a single game. He broke the NFL's single season receptions record last season with 149 catches, shattering Marvin Harrison's previous high watermark of 143 by Week 16. It was Thomas' second consecutive season leading the NFL in receptions. Thomas also paced all NFL players in receiving yards last season, with 1,725 yards, and he is the only wide receiver in NFL history to finish a season with more than 100 catches while also catching 80 percent or more of the passes thrown his way since Pro Football Reference first began tracking targets in 1992. Thomas has only missed one game in his first four seasons, when he sat out a Week 14 contest in his 2016 rookie season against the Buccaneers with a foot injury. He has played through other nagging issues in the past, and suggested via his Twitter account that he played with a broken hand in the playoffs. In that lone game that Thomas missed, quarterback Drew Brees threw three interceptions in a game the Saints lost 16-11.
  4. He says he can play thru it, but maybe rest him and focus on Sanders, Calloway, and activate Bennie Fowler?
  5. A solid if unspectacular win, the run D was solid, Jackrabbit's pick 6 was huge, but the pass D has gotta tighten up a bit and fix the penalties. Latt did a pretty great job covering Evans, but he's gotta not let him get in his head like he did early on w/ that boneheaded personal foul he got caught with. The offense is still sputtering, but w/o a pre-season and much TC work, I wasn't too surprised that they aren't clicking on all cylinders, but I'll give the yucs' 2ndary some credit where it's due, they did a solid job taking away the deep threat/longer intermediate throws for Drew as evidenced by the number of check downs to AK in the game that a few times ended up in him getting stuffed for a loss. Watching brady get sacked, throw those 2 picks, and him crying to the refs were satisfying things of beauty lol...
  6. AK got PAID... I saw that they got Rankins to restructure which freed up 4 mil for this yr... Considering all that AK has done besides being a RB, I say he's earned it... Next up, Shon and Ram (I hope)...
  7. Sweet, Fowler is on the PS... here's the list: https://www.nola.com/sports/saints/article_9c3e8f60-f053-11ea-9bf0-67a4ee8c78de.html NFL teams set their initial 53-man rosters on Saturday afternoon, but the roster moves were far from over on Sunday. The Saints signed 14 players to its practice squad on Sunday, coming in two shy of the league-maximum 16. Here's the full list: LB Joe Bachie LB Anthony Chickillo LB Andrew Dowell WR Bennie Fowler III TE Garrett Griffin CB Kemon Hall WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey DL Margus Hunt WR Juwan Johnson RB Tony Jones Jr. TE Tommy Stevens OL Calvin Throckmorton OL Cameron Tom DB Keith Washington Jr. The Saints initially announced the signing of offensive lineman John Leglue to the practice squad. Leglue, a Tulane alumnus, was with New Orleans on the practice squad for most of last season before the Green Bay Packers signed him to their 53-man roster. However, Leglue and the Saints hadn't quite finalized things when the team announced its practice squad, a source said. Then, the team said that the Saints wouldn't be signing him to the squad. Also of note, the Saints have three vested veterans among those 15 with linebacker Anthony Chickillo, wide receiver Bennie Fowler III and defensive lineman Margus Hunt. Additionally, the Chicago Bears have reportedly worked out a deal with former Saints defensive end Mario Edwards Jr., who the Saints released on Saturday. The NFL Network's Mike Garafolo tweeted early Sunday morning that Edwards had agreed to terms with the Bears, his fourth team since entering the league in 2015 as a second-round pick. Edwards didn't have to go through waivers since he's a sixth-year veteran. Edwards had been with the Saints since free agency in 2019, suiting up in 14 games for New Orleans last year. He recorded eight combined tackles and three sacks as a Saint. The waiver wire was quiet for the Saints, as none of the players New Orleans waived on Saturday were claimed. Additionally, the Saints didn't win any claims either, so for now, the initial 53-man roster remains the 53-man roster.
  8. I hope we can stash Bennie Fowler on the PS...
  9. Welp, he signed w/ the Titans...

  11. I know that SP and a few other coaches at at Clowney's house in Houston last night b/c he insisted that they eat there and have his personal chef cook (she's from Slidell btw). He also fired his agent as well. I'm really hoping we can get him on at least a 1 yr deal to help get us get dat the SB this yr.
