Saints blueprint: Moves, additions, cap adjustments team should make on offense

The combine is here, which means it is time to start laying out plans for the season. Over each of the next two days, I’ll be laying out a plan for how the Saints can get better on both sides of the ball, the biggest issues the roster faces, and where they can create cap […]

How Taysom Hill’s growth as a route runner could make him an even bigger weapon

Imagine a world where one player can do everything and never leave the field. Quarterback one snap. Tight end the next. Running back. Wide receiver. OK, so, maybe this isn’t the best exercise. The mind doesn’t have to stretch that far since everyone is already more than familiar with Taysom Hill. The football player has […]

What a new Collective Bargaining Agreement means for Saints salary cap, Drew Brees contract

The NFL could be closing in on reaching a new collective bargaining agreement with the players that would lock in labor peace for the next decade.

Imagining what the Saints would look like with Taysom Hill at quarterback

There might not be a more anticipated offseason pass than the next one Taysom Hill throws.

What was the reason for Drew Brees’ lack of deep passes last season?

The pass wasn’t particularly beautiful or memorable. It got the job done. A lot happened that day, so Drew Brees connecting with Ted Ginn Jr. down the Superdome’s right sideline during the 2018 NFC title game just a couple plays before the infamous no-call is an understandably forgettable moment. But the fact is, Brees reached […]

Why the Saints can win the Super Bowl with Drew Brees back

Go ahead and try to talk yourself into someone else. It’s fine. There are things to like about Teddy Bridgewater, and there might not be a more exciting idea in the NFL than Taysom Hill running an offense designed for him by Sean Payton. The thought alone has had imaginations turning for two years. But […]

We determined how much separation Michael Thomas creates with his route running

Michael Thomas isn’t fast enough. He’s not a burner. He can’t win deep. He might not create enough separation with his route running. The knocks made against the Saints wide receiver entering the league look idiotic in hindsight. People raced to draw conclusions based on his 4.57 40-yard dash time, and even though he has […]

How often does Drew Brees change plays? We found out

There are plenty of options from which to choose if you are looking to scapegoat someone for the Saints’ early playoff exit. Poor decisions. Poor protection. Poor performance. Take your pick.
