For the New Orleans Saints, #FalconsHateWeek doesn't get much bigger than this

The long lumbering 2014 roller coaster ride has led us here, to an almost de facto NFC South divisional championship game in the Superdome against the Atlanta Falcons. A New Orleans Saints win, coupled with a Carolina Panthers loss, would bring the division title back to New Orleans. A Falcons win would put the title within Atlanta's reach.

Read it that way and you almost forget we're talking about teams that have a combined 11 wins this year.

Y@ Speak: it's beginning to look a lot like... something

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2014 at 1:15 PM

New Orleans Saints bloodbaths and indictments, Millennium Falcons lighting up the trees, roosters living at the grocery store, the smell of Curren$y baking on our timelines... all the makings of the holiday season are in this week's Y@ Speak. Also: Dave Chappelle, Wendell Pierce, LeBron James and more.

Time for Saints fans to dust off those paper bags?

By nearly any measure, this New Orleans Saints' season has been a complete disaster; one filled with so many bad memories, they'd be hilarious if they weren't so painful. But if you thought that this nightmare will end in three weeks (four if this teams somehow stumbles into the playoffs), think again.

Five terrible 2014 Saints moments that are almost kind of funny, in hindsight

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 at 3:40 PM

Many bad things have happened to the New Orleans Saints over the course of a 2014 season that went bad so long ago that, by now, it feels endless. Everything football has been pretty miserable, but sometimes the best thing to do in a situation like this is laugh.

If we're going to treat the Saints' 2014 lowlights as a showing of an old b-movie un-classic like Plan 9 from Outer Space, we'll start with these five horrible, no good, very bad plays.

Saints Twitter reacts to Sean Payton's Red Wedding

  • Coach Sean Payton looking displeased after the New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl. One can only imagine how he's looking today.

Breaking news hit Saints Twitter today like Walder Frey's soldiers annihilating House Stark. (Oh, come on, you know you watch Game of Thrones.)

After the most turbulent week of a turbulent season culminated in what was probably the most embarrassing loss of his tenure, Sean Payton took action.

Gone, now, is oft-in-trouble wide receiver Joe Morgan, and called into individual meetings were a number of other Saints players.

Saints Twitter smelled the blood in the water — and then had a grand old time.

Y@ Speak: throwing punches

Posted By on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 at 12:31 PM


Even the New Orleans Saints channeled a bit of rage (albeit during a ruthless loss) that New Orleans had stored up all week, from protest marches to elections and everything in between. Also this week: New Orleans remembers Jonah Bascle, and Lil Wayne is now a figurative prisoner.

Putting Mark Ingram's breakout season into perspective

One of the biggest stories of the New Orleans' Saints 2014 season — aside from the general awful disappointment of the thing as a whole — has been the continuing story of #AngryIngram. 
Above: don't ask. This is just what Saints Twitter does on Sunday afternoons.

But just where does Mark Ingram's 2014 campaign stack up compared to the success of other running backs in recent Saints history? Let's take a look.

Despite rumors that the Saints will replace Drew Brees, the QB is good as ever

Saints preparing for Life After Brees? Nah. - TULANE UNIVERSITY PUBLIC RELATIONS

  • Saints preparing for Life After Brees? Nah.

Before Drew Brees threw five touchdowns and no interceptions to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh and, once again, seemingly reverse the 2014 New Orleans Saints' fortunes, the big news was Brees was done, over, about to be replaced. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport made the headlines: There's no real reason to lend Rapoport's report any credence. The overwhelming majority of Sunday morning quick-take sources stuff turns out to be nothing, the fringiest conversation with a reporter's player or coach acquaintance made into mainstream news, because how else would the long pregame hours be filled?

The idea the Saints will soon replace Brees is lunacy, but the idea that Brees has struggled in 2014 to a degree he's never struggled before, and that this indicates he's declining, seems to have more traction.

But that idea is stupid too.

Y@ Speak: tipping the scales

Posted By on Mon, Dec 1, 2014 at 2:50 PM

Y@ Speak looks at a week of too much football, too much oyster dressing, and a whole lot of protests and calls to action. Also: Brennan's reopens and Parker the raccoon terrorizes City Park.
