Drew Brees Reps Who Dat Nation on Colbert Report (VIDEO)
Stephen Colbert was graced by Breesus on yesterday's episode of The Colbert Report, and the Saints' humble quarterback had some Super Bowl advice for his peers Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. Before shouting out to the Who Dat Nation, Brees praised both the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos and wished them well in Sunday's Bowl game.
Drew Brees Talks Sherman, Extra Points on David Letterman (VIDEO)
The Saints aren't in the big game and we're not hosting, but New Orleans is still has a place in Super Bowl hype. A King Cake baby already made an appearance in the NFL's pre-Super Bowl late night talk show blitz. Now, it's Breesus' turn.
Joe Buck's King Cake Baby Bite (VIDEO)
Joe Buck almost helped King Cake make a well-timed Carnival season appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday. Only trouble is, the Fox play-by-play announcer didn't mention Carnival. During an interview on Fallon's show in advance of his play-by-play duties at Sunday's Super Bowl, Buck broke out a King Cake baby that he's carried around with him for five years.
Drew Brees to Have Familiar Protectors at Pro Bowl
Sadly, Drew Brees isn't gearing up for the Super Bowl. But the Saints' exalted QB will still be calling signals this week and wearing the C on his shoulder. Brees was picked first by 49ers great Jerry Rice as a team captain for this weekend's Pro Bowl.
Ex-Saint Darren Sharper Arrested in L.A., NOPD Investigating Sex Assault Allegation

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' Season Ends With 23-15 Loss to Seahawks
While the scoreline was much closer and the defense fought valiantly, the New Orleans Saints left Seattle Saturday night with a dejected feeling that is likely not that different from a month ago. While it wasn't a blowout, the Black and Gold's season ended with a 23-15 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
Saints-Seahawks Playoff Rematch a Measure of Mends
While New Orleans Saints fans can often be forgiven for being overly optimistic, this week they're excused for a bit of hedging. Whether it's a car salesman's entreaty from the sky to "Believe" or the musings of a barstool WhoDat talking about how the pressure is all on the other side, even the chest-beating ahead of the Saints' NFC Division playoff showdown with the Seattle Seahawks (3:25 p.m., FOX), seems resigned to the fact that Black and Gold victory will require an intangible or four bouncing New Orleans' way.
Seafood on the Line in Saints-Seahawks Battle
Update 8:40 p.m.
Vegas has odds on Seattle for this weekend's football showdown with the Saints. But the line is holding when it comes to the seafood bet, even if only one side has gator. Senators and port captains alike from the Crescent City and Emerald City are putting up crusteacans and fish respectively in front of the NFC Divisional playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks.
Saints Lay it All on the Line of Scrimmage to Get First Road Playoff Win
The New Orleans Saints earned the franchise's first road playoff victory Saturday night by clawing to a 26-24 win over the Philaldelphia Eagles. Continuing the defiant tone they brought to Philly when they put a target on their team bus, the Saints relied on the old playoff football standbys of rushing and defense to get the victory. A Sean Payton masterclass in situational football and a precision performance from kicker Shayne Graham at the end of the game didn't hurt either.
