THE

Defender Picks

 

D at Last?


The Saints have been a defensive disaster for several years now. On Thursday, the Black n’ Gold management finally looked beyond coaching changes and more pressure on the offense. The team used the No. 12 pick in the NFL draft to snag pass-rushing, 3-technique defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins.


Saints 2016 Schedule


Ready for football yet? The Saints released their 2016 schedule on Thursday (4.14) night— and it’s a tough one. The Black n’ Gold were handed the fourth most difficult schedule (statistically) in the league.


Oranges't Ya Coming? Ingram Courts Auburn Allumn


Almost exactly a year ago, Mark Ingram learned that he would remain a Saint. In the time since, the visibly relaxed running back has whole-heartedly embraced New Orleans. Now, he is even helping the Saints out in their effort to recruit free agent defensive tackle Nick Fairley.


Payton Presser Payoff?


The 2015 Saints raised a lot of questions about the franchise’s future. Social media went into overdrive with debates about Breesus, C.J. Spiller, the O-line (or lack thereof), and Rob Ryan. However, the number one question was the fate of coach Sean Payton. Today, Payton offered a definitive answer during his year-end press confeerence. NoDef live-blogged the event as a (almost) emotional Payton gushed about his love of NOLA. Click through for highlights.


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.


Report: Brees Out Several Weeks


WhoDats began 2015 with Lombardi Gras dreams swirling in their head, but the path to ‘Aints is paved with good intentions. After a dismal 0-2 start, the news got worse. NFL.com is reporting that Drew Brees may be sidelined with a shoulder injury for several weeks.


Who Dat? Saints 2015 Opponents Revealed


Baseball is just beginning, but NFL is looking forward. On Tuesday (4.21) night, the Saints released their 2015 schedule. WhoDats should prepare for some tough opponents and (potentially stressful) season closing game against the Dirty Birds of Atlanta.


Brees Keeps the Keys


A series of recent moves by the Saints front office have led to speculation that the Black n’ Gold are trading everyone from the beer vendor in Section 336 to Breesus himself. Today, GM Mickey Loomis made it clear that Brees is here to stay, as first reported by USA Today.


Write End: Saints Reportedly Ink Deal to Trade Graham


Jimmy Graham became an instant hero in da Dome. Drew Brees’ favorite target thrilled WhoDats with his goalpost dunks and gaudy numbers. Then he became the source of controversy with contract arbitration, goalpost dunks, and not so gaudy numbers. Now, ESPN is reporting that a trade to Seattle will end Graham’s Saints days.


"Blessed" Ingram Stays a Saint


Mark Ingram is a man accustomed to proving the pundits wrong. First, the talking heads were adamant that the Saints running back was yet another Heisman winner who couldn’t make it in the pros. After, the five foot nine, 215 pound Alabama allum put up a Pro Bowl season, the chattering class was convinced that a departure from New Orleans was imminent. Ingram proved them wrong again. Number 22 inked a four year, 16 million dollar contract to stay a Saint.
