Broken Record?


Christmas Day is all about about Jesus. Tonight (12.21) is all about Breesus. The 5-8 Saints were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday (12.20) night, but WhoDats will have plenty of reason to watch the Saints’ host the woeful Detroit Lions tonight. Number 9 is on the verge of breaking a handful of additional records.


Saints-Seahawks Preview: Battle of Might on Monday Night


The Monday after Thanksgiving always hits hard, but the New Orleans Saints (9-2) have an especially tough wake up call at the end of their extended break. The Black and Gold are set to battle in Seattle on Monday Night Football (7:30 p.m., ESPN) at a loud, cold and soggy Century Link Field that was the scene of their undoing a mere three years ago. If that's not enough, it should probably also be noted that the Seahawks (10-1) are a very good football squad.


Saints' 2013 Schedule!


With Sean Payton back, the Dude installed at head coach and the NFL Draft around the corner, the countdown to Saints season is on. WhoDats will start to wish the clock to tick a little faster, with the official announcement made that the Saints will host the Dirty Birds in the Superdome to open the season on Sept. 8.

Monday Night Football Features Saints, Eagles, Candidates


Before the Tuesday Night Election, Monday Night Football takes a trip to the safe states for the New Orleans Saints tonight. The Philadelphia Eagles are in town to take on the Black and Gold at Da Dome (7:30 p.m., ESPN). With the presidential race on everyone's mind, politics can't help but bleed into the contest. But don't worry, this time we don't suspect Obama will be weighing in on the refs.


Saints' Sproles Sidelined by Injury


Sending bad news after bad, Saints offensive production machine Darren Sproles is out for Monday night's game against Philadelphia with a hand injury. Interim Head Coach Joe Vitt said the running back and kick return specialist had surgery on the injured hand.


Saints Shrink Giants: Links


With the Mondy Night lights turned up, Drew Brees again marked his territory among the top Quarterbacks in the league yesterday as our boys in Black and Gold dismantled the New York Giants 49-24 at the (insert car company) Superdome. Over at ESPN, Pat Yasinksas is already starting to put the Breesus in the MVP category. After all, that running dive did make Sean Payton raise both crutches. Canal Street Chronicles picks up the rest of the odds and ends on last night's game, including the one sign of a good night we should've picked up: The Saints won the coin toss.


Today's Events: 11.28.11


Today, the Saints return to action but long before: Ferdinand Magellan became the first European to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean (1520), Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 premiered in Leipzig (1811), Rachmaninoff debuted his Piano Concerto No. 3 (1909), the Grand Ole Opry began broadcasting in Nashville, Tenn. (1925), Randy Newman (1943) and Trey Songz were born (1984), and Washington Irving died (1859). Now back to the business at hand:
