Jimmy Graham Dunks Would End Under New NFL Rule

The NFL often encourages basketball references when it comes to Jimmy Graham, but apparently the league feels dunking is taking things a bit too far. The league has been weighing whether to make dunking the ball through the uprights a penalty, which would force the Saints tight end to change up his touchdown celebration.

Litany of The Saints

Looking Back at the 2013 Team, and a Peek at Next Season

It's been a week since the New Orleans Saints' season lateralled forward to its soggy conclusion in Seattle. Most New Orleanians have just tried to start getting ready for Mardi Gras, while the true football addicts have already tried to hide their separation anxiety under salary cap talk.

Saints, Brees Lock in to Cage Panthers, 31-13

Round one goes to the Black and Gold guys. For at least the next couple of weeks, the New Orleans Saints gained the upper hand in the NFC South race with a 31-13 throttling of the Carolina Panthers. A week after Seattle made them look like mere mortals, a night game in the Superdome was just the balm the Saints' needed to rise back into exalted territory.

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 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.
