Rob Ryan, like his equally rambunctious brother Rex, is an enjoyable personality in the NFL. He is not, however, a good defensive coordinator.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees messed up his shoulder after being hit in last Sunday’s game, and wasn’t immediately ruled out for this week, but it turns out his recovery wasn’t quick enough. Head coach Sean Payton said today that he’ll keep Brees out of this Sunday’s game against the Panthers.
Drew Brees played quite poorly Sunday as the Saints lost to the Buccaneers, and it might not have just been one bad game. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says the Saints believe the 36-year-old quarterback could miss time with a shoulder injury.
Football Outsiders published its Aggressiveness Index results yesterday, and came back with a very weird result. Jim Caldwell went for a shitload of fourth downs.
Chip Kelly's busy gutting the Eagles roster and reshaping it to his liking, but let's turn to the Saints, who are just throwing shit all over the office this week.
Marques Colston's very forward pass was one of the odder endings to a football game, and at first glance, one of the dumbest. But the Saints stayed strangely silent on the question of whether Colston was ad-libbing. Now we know: It was a designed play.
The NFL announced on Tuesday that Sean Payton's season-long suspension for his role in the bounty scandal was over. He presumably spent Wednesday moving all his desk tchotchkes back into his office. Today he fired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and secondary coach Ken Flajole.

Heading into this Sunday night's game against San Diego, Drew Brees is one TD pass away from breaking Johnny Unitas' 52-year-old NFL record for most consecutive games throwing for a score. That, Brees deemed, was a big-enough occasion to decide to personally email Roger Goodell and ask if he'd allow Sean Payton a…
Fledgling blues keyboardist Sean Payton has to sit out this season as New Orleans Saints head coach following this summer's bounty scandal, but that doesn't mean he's been exiled from all football activities everywhere. In fact, Payton hopes to keep his play-calling chops in game shape by helping out as the offensive…

New Orleans is getting used to life without Sean Payton, who has begun serving a one-year suspension for his role in the bounty scandal. There was always the possibility that the Saints would handle the situation quietly and without hyperbole or fanfare, not wanting to draw attention to the actions that have made them…
Reader Dave hit up the old inbox this morning and passed along a few pictures of currently suspended New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton tickling the ivories at the House of Blues in New Orleans last night. Per Dave:
ESPN reports that Sean Payton has floated the idea that Bill Parcells could be the Saints' placeholder coach while Payton serves his one-year suspension. Parcells is something of a mentor to Payton, so the two have been talking a lot recently, with Payton needing a big Tuna-y shoulder to cry on. But football makes for…
Jeremy Shockey is going to great lengths to prove that he's not the snitch who notified the NFL of the Saints' bounty program, including texting Sean Payton, and posting that conversation for everyone to see.
