Film study: How Malcolm Jenkins will make an already dangerous secondary even better

You can see it right away. Malcolm Jenkins is a different type of player. He isn’t just someone who plays in the box or covers the slot or drops deep. He does a little bit of everything and does it all well. The veteran safety is just as comfortable sitting in a zone, reading a […]

Saints have much more flexibility in post-free agency draft simulation

The Saints did a great job during free agency of addressing most of their needs. This should allow them, for the most part, to be pretty open about how they approach the draft and go about checking off the rest of their needs. They might still want to add a linebacker, cornerback and quarterback to […]

Film study: Emmanuel Sanders gives Saints everything they didn’t have

The one route that stood out the most might have been the easiest to overlook. The play came during Week 1 against the Raiders and only gained four yards. Any study of any other player joining any other team and you might scroll right by it, looking for something spicier to present as an example […]

Podcast: Breaking down Emmanuel Sanders’ fit in the offense

The first wave of free agency is in the books. New Orleans made a big splash by bringing in Emmanuel Sanders, and we discuss all of the things that make him a perfect fit in the Saints’ offense. We then shift gears and explain why bringing back Andrus Peat might not be the craziest idea […]

The rundown: How does Tom Brady change the balance of power in the NFC South?

Everyone places a lot of blame on New England’s weapons for the struggles Tom Brady endured last season.  They aren’t wrong. Not totally. Brady never got up to speed with first-round pick N’Keal Harry, and Mohamed Sanu suffered an injury that derailed his season. Brady had Julian Edelman and not much else beyond a couple […]

Emmanuel Sanders could be missing piece for Saints

There was always one player who fit the Saints’ one need better than anyone else. Emmanuel Sanders sat at the top of the market, likely just a little bit too pricey for a team that doesn’t typically spend a lot to acquire wide receivers. But, man, if they decided to open up their wallet on […]

Why keeping Andrus Peat makes sense for the Saints

Not many people were expecting a repeat. When Andrus Peat hit the open market, the expectation was that he was going to find work elsewhere, and New Orleans would move on to other options. But as the top guards got scooped off of the market, Peat sat without a job. The possibility of a reunion […]

Moving on to Malcolm Jenkins was about cost analysis, a theme of free agency for Saints

Sean Payton carries with him two regrets. The first was letting Rob Ninkovich go. Watching the pass rusher flourish in New England pained the Saints coach, and he could never hide his disappointment with himself whenever New Orleans was preparing to play the Patriots. The other was letting Malcolm Jenkins walk to Philadelphia. Losing Jenkins […]
