MIA: Our defense has never been the same since we didn't replace Scott Fujita

I made some comments below in a thread about losing Fujita, Vilma, and even Shanle speculating that we lack a field general QB on defense. Last night against the Cowboys there were moments when I saw lack of communication between defensive players and it hurt. In fact, our defense has lacked communication since Fujita left.


Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma were a potent forced when paired together...

The ArtiChoke

Posted 09-18-2014 at 10:49 PM by Barry from MS

'The Art of War' was written over 2000 years ago, and this timeless wisdom has inspired many famous military strategists, including General MacArthur. The Art of the Choke (which we'll refer to as ArtiChoke) I'm sure can be traced as far back in history as 'The Art of War'. But for our purposes, we'll just use the ArtiChoke to apply towards our present and towards some traumatic past references of our Black & Gold.

If you can remember as far back as "The Bum Years"...

How to really handle Ray Rice and AP

Posted 09-17-2014 at 09:50 AM by neugey

I'm getting sick of the judgmental media and all the holier-than-thou hoopla. Let the judicial system and law enforcement sort these things out. It's all about the drama and the ratings, which is sad because people usually tune into sports to get away from all this BS.

Before online market places such as eBay and the subsequent rapid inflation of sports memorabilia creating economic windfalls of turning sports cards into lottery tickets, trading sports cards had other motives...

Sports Card trading motives varied from collecting a favorite team such as the Red

Childhood Trauma Prevention

Posted 08-29-2014 at 04:56 PM by Barry from MS

My 1st blog, so be gentle.

Since following this team in the shadows of my uncles and a dad griping and throwing stuff at the TV in the early 80's, I am amazed at just how far this New Orleans Saints team has come along over the past 3 and half decades of my existence.

We expect the playoffs, now. Our goal is home field advantage throughout the playoffs to help secure the ultimate goal of a second Super Bowl championship.

We gripe and forecast doom...
