Rob Ryan (Finally) Talks Some Trash About Saints


Just a few years ago, NOLA was awash in love for Rob Ryan. But, the former Saints defensive coordinator quickly went from the hero of Ms. Mae’s to an exiled goat. It appears that the feelings are now mutual. During an interview with “The MMQB”, Ryan finally took some swipes back at the Black n’ Gold.


Ryan's Last Round


Updated 2:35p.m.

Rob Ryan and the City of New Orleans seemed like a perfect fit. Ryan relished the local food, bought rounds at Mae’s, and took strolls around the Quarter. The only problem for the Saints Defensive Coordinator was, well, the Saints’ defense. Today (11.16), Fox Sports reported that Black n’ Gold fired Ryan ending the agony (and the occasional ecstasy).


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.


Today in New Orleans 11.17.13


Who Dat! The Saints take on the 49ers today in da Dome. Families looking for a quieter afternoon can head to the final showing of Noah's Flood, the Benjamin Britten opera at Trinity Episcopal. Hell Yes Fest is also closing out this year's week of comedy at One Eyed Jacks. On this day in 1906, Shreveport hosted Louisiana's first state fair. Now, more to do this Sunday. 


Saints' Rob Ryan Buys Victory Rounds at Ms. Mae's (VIDEO)


Rob Ryan is no stranger to Ms. Mae's, and the Saints' defensive coordinator once again visited his Uptown watering hole to celebrate last night's victory against the Cowboys. NoDef reader Rachel Stickney was on the scene to film Ryan cheering with fans after dropping $200 on the bar to buy everyone a round. 


Saints Devour Dallas Cowboys, 49-17


The night wranglers rode again in the Superdome on Sunday Night Football. The New Orleans Saints' exalted offense found another gear and the defense shut down Dalas to score a blowout win over the Cowboys to mark yet another dominant performance in a prime time home game. The Black and Gold improved to 7-2 with the 49-17 win, and marched into the NFL record books with an all-time record 40 first downs in the game.


Tweet D@! Team, City Prepare for Saints-Cowboys at the Dome


Countdown to tonight's Dallas-New Orleans game has begun, and the city  is taking to the Twittosphere in preparation. If you are lucky enough to get to the Dome, arrive early for a card stunt in honor of Veterans Day. Click through for more from the players:  


Saints-Cowboys Likely to Be High-Flying in the Dome


A week after the Jets soared over them in New York, the New Orleans Saints (6-2) will look to get back to winning against the Dallas Cowboys (5-4) on Sunday Night Football (NBC, 7:30 p.m.). Head Coach Sean Payton and Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will be looking to keep their old cavalry at bay, while the Black and Gold look to extend their impressive run of prime time performances in the Dome of the last several years.


Today in New Orleans 11.3.13


This afternoon,  tune in to watch the Saints go against the Jets at Metlife Stadium. Later on, The Cure and Kid Rock are headlining Voodoo’s last night. On this day in Louisiana’s media history, the Lake Charles Weekly replaced the Lake Charles Commercial on November 3, 1900. Now, more to do this Sunday. 


Saints-Jets Preview: Rob v. Rex, Vilma Could Return


The New Orleans Saints will be on the road in New York on Sunday, but a few familiar faces will be back in the fold. The Black and Gold will look to move to 7-1 as they wrap up an early-season slate of games against AFC East teams by take on the New York Jets (4-4) at Metlife Stadium (Noon, FOX).
