NewOrleans.Football acquired scouting reports on Hill from August 2017 via two league sources, which show what teams were thinking about the quarterback at the time.
Rank Michael Thomas wherever you want. There is probably a proper place to slot him, but some people think catching one of every five passes for 35 yards is better than catching seven of every eight for 8 yards at a time. Doesn’t matter. We all agree that he sits somewhere in the single […]
The Saints almost always find a way to get where they need to go, but faster isn’t always better.
Drew Brees reminded everyone last week why he is one of the best ever in two-minute situations. The pressure isn’t pressure for Brees. He’s too cool, too calm, even when it comes down to attempting a pass with five seconds left. See, that isn’t easy. The key is making sure that one tick remains on […]
PJ Quarrie thought Deonte Harris was bluffing. When the Saints wide receiver told Quarrie he wanted to start working on his game after the Super Bowl, the trainer thought he had maybe two or three weeks before Harris showed up. Tuesday morning, Harris was there, ready to get to work. There was no time to […]
The Saints produced what might have been the most impactful offense in football last season. Sean Payton’s playbook kept New Orleans among the top-three scoring offenses in the NFL despite being without Drew Brees for multiple games, and many of his passing concepts helped carry LSU to a National Title. All credit is due to […]
The Saints drafted two of the best center prospects to enter the NFL over the last two seasons. When everything settles as it should, Cesar Ruiz will likely end up playing center, with Erik McCoy moving to right guard. Both men’s talents are best suited at these positions, especially McCoy, who can use his athleticism […]
Some football fans would have you believe that Michael Thomas only runs slant routes and nothing else. They’ve convinced themselves that this is true. These people have even created memes to spread the word across social media platforms like an army of truthers with an undying need to educate the world. This narrative isn’t real, […]
One of the first things the Saints do when evaluating a player or prospect is look at his big moments. If they’re considering a wide receiver, they’ll pull up all of his plays over 20 yards and go through those to establish a ceiling. This process allows them to project a best-case scenario for what […]
The Saints want players who can move. Not just at the skill positions, but also on the offensive line. Blocking and being assignment sound are still the chief responsibilities for Drew Brees’ group of protectors. That will never change, but New Orleans now appears to be placing a premium on linemen with athletic ability and […]
