Saints Nick Rundown: Vilma Out for Season, Sproles Cleared
The Saints' midweek injury reports are always a merry-go-round this time of year. This time, there's not a pony for everyone. After just one game back, longtime Saints defensive captain Jonathan Vilma was placed on the injured reserve, meaning he is out for the season. Meanwhile, running back Darren Sproles was reportedly cleared to play in the wake of being concussed in New Jersey.
Saints Recap: Black n' Gold Beat Buffalo Bills 35-17
The New Orleans Saints' offense was a little slow getting over the Bye Week Blues, but Breesus and his followers rebounded over the final 35 minutes of the game to dominate the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Sparked by a renewed connection with his wide receivers, Brees tossed five touchdown passes to jumpstart the Black and Gold toward a 35-17 victory at home in the Superdome.
Who D@?! Saints 6-1, Fans Post Victory Tweets
The Saints returned from their bye week with renewed vigor, and Who Dats took to the Twittosphere before, during and after today's game at da Dome. With a 35-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans is now 6-1 for the season. Click through to find out what players, celebrities, and the rest of the Who Dat Nation had to say about today's win.
Bye Week Bits: 4 Reasons Saints Benefit From Break
If this were a normal autumn Sunday, New Orleans would be gearing up for the New Orleans Saints to take the field. But on this day, WhoDats have sadly stumbled upon a fate worse than Thursday night games on the NFL Network. It's the Saints' Bye Week. We'll try to second line to forget, but there will be a little hole in our Black and Gold hearts without any scores to follow or touchdown rituals to observe. Nevertheless, the Saints have more than a few things to think about after being left with the sour taste of Brady. Click through to read four observations that may help ease the Bye Week Blues:
Buc Wild: Last-Second Field Goal Lifts Saints, 16-14
The scoreline, tough defense and occasional flea flicker made the game look more like a Saturday afternoon matchup between LSU and Florida in The Swamp. But a clutch drive in the last minute of the fourth quarter left no doubt that this Sunshine State football contest played at Raymond James Stadium was an NFC South battle on a Sunday afternoon. In the end, the Ray-Jay cannons were silenced as Garrett Hartley hit a last-second field goal from 27 yards to give the New Orleans Saints a 16-14 win over the the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Saints Look to Re-Sign Jimmy Graham, Re-Awaken Vilma
With August approaching, the countdown to football has emerged from its vegetative free agency period to a rapidly moving hourglass. The New Orleans Saints began training camp late this week. For the first time in a few years, things looked something like normal as Sean Payton fielded softball questions, Breesus was optimistic beyond mortal capacity and Jonathan Vilma was being lauded for his on-field prowess instead of courtroom theatrics.
I'm In 2.0
There's no new name yet, but that's not stopping the Hornets from swarming the city with more advertising. In the first Tom Benson edition of New Orleanians you may or may not recognize saying that they're "in," we find ourselves looking for clues about the next name. Look, there's an alligator. Oh, a local McDonald's owner...so much for the Seafood Dome. Susan Spicer. The Jimmy Graham. Bag of Donuts!? Will we see any of these likenesses on the court? Only time will tell. Until then, get in like it was the first time, and watch the video here.
NoDef Nods: In, Out, and What's Next
Hot and Not in 2011, and Who to Watch in 2012
In 2011, a lot of the old maxims about New Orleans' resistance to change got thrown out the window. From Freret Street to Mayor Mitch's office to the Krewe of Chewbacchus, the City showed us that changing with the times, if not desired, is at the very least inevitable and therefore necessary. Waters around us have grown and all that. To be sure, many of the old vanguards of the city will live on past this period. But there are a few who came later that didn't live up to the hype. That doesn't mean they won't be back around again. As EWE taught us, you can always come back and marry someone who makes you look good. So, without further rambling, here's a list of who's in and who's out in 2011, and what to look out for in 2012.
Why Two New Offensive Weapons Make the Saints Even Easier to Love
The successful Saints look much the same this year as they have in the last two campaigns, but two new pieces of the winning formula are not like their predecessors. NoDef Guest Writer Grandmaster Wang of moosedenied explains why that's good a thing.
Sean Payton Coaching Hurt
Saints tight end, Jimmy Graham, has been filling up the stat sheet this year. But it's tough to earn points with the coach when you drill him on the sideline. In a first half play during Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Bucaneers, Graham caught a short pass and turned it into an 11-yard gain. But as Graham muscled the defender into the sideline, he was pushed into head coach Sean Payton. The Saints report the head coach suffered a knee injury on the play, suffering a torn MCL and tibial plateau fracture. For the rest of the game, he will coach and call plays from the booth.
