Sanity Zone 8-28-2014 Looking down the Barrel

Posted 07-28-2014 at 04:01 PM by xan

A lot has happened in the last 6 months that seem to be going under the radar. Depending which side of the issue you're on, you could be looking down the trigger side or the exit side of the barrel.

First up, the exchange rate is really favorable for the US. That's excellent for anyone who likes a job. Demand for Manufacturing jobs are increasing, service jobs are increasing, wages are rising, inflation is creeping up (a good thing, for now) and asset prices are recovering. All...

What i tell you ! !! !

Posted 11-02-2014 at 11:37 AM by SAINTstunna

If you read my previous posts, I was right about the Saints not running the ball enough and committing to any of our running backs. I honestly think we would have success with any of the backs if we gave them enough touches. How can anyone get into a rhythm when our backs stat line looks like this: Ingram 8 carries, Thomas 7 carries, and Robinson about 9 carries ? ? ?? I understand running back by committee but I knew if we stuck to someone, anyone, that would open our team up as a whole....

Saints: A glimpse of the future

Posted 11-19-2014 at 09:52 AM by lee909

In the first of a two-part article I will attempt to look at were the Saints stand in the longer term. The team is a mix of older veterans (whose contracts are above what they offer to the team) and some very promising young players. Most of the Saints big contracts can start coming off the books in 2016 as contracts like Colston, Lofton, Bunkley etc will be at a point where the dead money is not too high to be written off if the team is in need of cap space or has found a better alternative. In...

Sanity Zone 10-2-2013 Shut Down and Loving it.

Posted 10-02-2013 at 09:54 AM by xan

Sorry for not posting anything for a while. I'd offer half-hearted excuses, but it's only because there's been nothing inspiring to talk about. But joy is back!

As a college professor, I like to use examples of catastrophically bad decision-making as teaching tools. Examining the process and the reasons for failure teach us a great deal about how the world works, and how to identify when we might be in a similar situation. There is a side effect of also being very funny. It's easier...

Sean Payton..Offensive Coordinator..Not Head Coach

Posted 12-30-2007 at 05:14 PM by abutler

Sean Payton is a scientist when it comes to drawing up plays. He's also reliable in doing his homework on stats and percentages, and he ensures everything looks good on paper. However; games aren't won on paper. Games are won by much more. One especially important intangible that Sean Payton lacks is feel. This has been OBVIOUSLY EVIDENT since he brought the Saints up to Chicago for the NFC Championship game. They showed up on Saturday night for Sunday's Championship game. I heard him say...
