D at Last?


The Saints have been a defensive disaster for several years now. On Thursday, the Black n’ Gold management finally looked beyond coaching changes and more pressure on the offense. The team used the No. 12 pick in the NFL draft to snag pass-rushing, 3-technique defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins.


Saints 2016 Schedule


Ready for football yet? The Saints released their 2016 schedule on Thursday (4.14) night— and it’s a tough one. The Black n’ Gold were handed the fourth most difficult schedule (statistically) in the league.


Purple n' Gold on the Greens


If you've been busy festing, you might be missing the Masters. This year LSU has been a huge presence in Augusta. Alumni Smylie Kaufman has been unabashed about his Tiger pride and he’s killing it.


Saints' Scrimmages


It’s never too early for Who Dat Nation to get ready for some football. On Thursday (4.07), the Saints released their full schedule and plans for the preseason.


Hoop Schemes


The Pelicans will most likely not be making a trip to the playoffs this year. However, New Orleans hoops squad will be making a trip to China in the fall. On Tuesday (3.29) night, the NBA announced that the Pels and the Houston Rockets will face off in a pair of Asian exhibition matches.


Smooth Finish


The Crescent City Classic is all New Orleasn whihc is to say that drinking and walking are both respectable p[arts of the race. Still, the annual 10k is still a respected destination on the running circuit and pros come to compete. Saturday's (3.26) race provided some reall challenges for serious sprinters.


Oranges't Ya Coming? Ingram Courts Auburn Allumn


Almost exactly a year ago, Mark Ingram learned that he would remain a Saint. In the time since, the visibly relaxed running back has whole-heartedly embraced New Orleans. Now, he is even helping the Saints out in their effort to recruit free agent defensive tackle Nick Fairley.


Payton's Pay Day


As promised, Sean Payton is with New Orleans for the long haul. On Wednesday (3.23), the Saints head coach announced that negotiations are complete on his new contract.


Low Brow: Davis Could Lose 23 MIl


Anthony Davis’ season came to a disappointing end on Sunday (3.20) when the Pelicans announced that the franchise’s star is done for the season due to injury. The Brow is most likely just as frustrated as Birds fans whose playoff hopes are all but destroyed at this point. After all, Davis stands to lose 23 million dollars on account of his early departure.


Not So Elementary: Watson Out


Free agent deals can not be made official until Wednesday (3.09) at 3:00p.m. However, the Saints’ tight end carousel is already spinning again. A year after the shocking departure of Jimmy Graham, his replacement Ben Watson is leaving the Crescent City to play for the Baltimore Ravens according to the Baltimore Sun.
