  • The day after: Saints reflect back on the flag that wasn’t thrown

    Less than 24 hours after a 26-23 overtime loss in the NFC championship game to the Rams, Saints players were huddling for the final time this season. The loss was one of the most controversial in NFL playoff history. What appeared to be an obvious pass interference call on Rams defensive back Nikell Robey-Coleman against Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis was not called. If called, the Saints would have had first and ten inside the Rams six yard line with […]

  • Ed-itorial: Refs got it wrong, but Saints didn’t finish

    For the conspiracy theorists, the pass interference not called against the Rams in the final two minutes of Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Saints provides some fertile ground. Here’s some of the prevalent theories. The NFL wanted the largest market teams in the Super Bowl, therefore wanted Los Angeles instead of New Orleans. A story published on a local news media website trumpets the following. “At least two Rams-Saints officials are from Los Angeles.” Interesting. Before Sunday’s game, the […]

  • Payton: Refs blew the call, NFL agrees, Saints fall to Rams in Overtime

    The Rams are headed to the Super Bowl, and the Saints have to chew on another devastating post season loss. Greg Zuerlein kicked a 57 yard field goal in overtime to give Los Angeles a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game. But, Saints head coach Sean Payton said two officials cost the Saints a chance to end the game in regulation. Playing a third and 10 at the Rams 13, Saints wide receiver Tommy Lee Lewis appeared to be […]

  • Report: Ben Watson out for NFC Championship vs Rams

    Saints tight end Ben Watson will be inactive for Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Rams. Watson has suffered from appendicitis the past few days. He did not have surgery, and returned to practice Friday. ESPN was the first to report that Watson will miss Sunday’s game. If the Saints win, it is unclear if Watson would play in the Super Bowl. He’s announced his retirement after this season, so if the Rams defeat the Saints Sunday, Watson’s last NFL […]

  • Ed-itorial: Rams vs Saints, lots of wins, share of questions for both

    The last three NFC championship games were all blowouts won by the home team. By halftime, the home team was comfortably ahead. No visiting team has won an NFC title game since the 2012 San Francisco 49ers, who then lost in the Super Bowl at the Superdome to the Baltimore Ravens. The betting line on the game has held steady. The Saints are three point favorites at home and the total on the game in Vegas is 56 and a […]

  • Edi-torial: Truth from the mouth of an Atlanta politician, how cool is that?

    It provided a good laugh, at the time. And, now seems so ironic. When the Saints hosted the Steelers December 23rd at the Superdome, a friend from Atlanta was spotted in the press box. “The Falcons are already dreading the Saints coming to the Super Bowl, and using their facility,” the friend said. My reply was something like that’s the way it goes. When the NFC champion comes to New Orleans, they practice at the Saints facility. It seemed like […]

  • Hollywood performance: Davis scores 46, Pelicans topple Clippers

    It took Anthony Davis awhile to get rolling, but when he did. Davis scored 46 points, 42 in the last three quarters to lead the Pelicans to a 121-117 win over the Clippers Monday night in Los Angeles. Davis was 12 of 12 from the free throw line, including some clutch freebies in the final minutes. The Pelicans blew a 20 point lead, then rallied with a 15-6 run in the fourth quarter. Davis also added 16 rebounds, and 4 […]

  • Expected rematch: Brees said Saints figured they might see Rams again in NFC title game

    The Saints host the Rams Sunday at 2:05 in the NFC championship. The winner advances to the Super Bowl, to be played February 3rd in Atlanta. November 4th, the Saints beat the Rams, 45-35 in a game that featured a combined 54 first downs and 970 total yards by the two teams. Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he isn’t a bit surprised the Saints and Rams are playing for a second time this season. The Rams defeated the Dallas Cowboys […]

  • Tigers go OT: subdue Hogs

    LSU’s nine game road losing streak, and Arkansas’s nine game home win streak both ended Saturday in Fayetteville. Javonte’ Smart hit a key three pointer in overtime, and Skylar Mays added a more conventional three point play as the Tigers defeated the Hogs, 94-88. LSU moved to 12-3, 2-0 in the SEC with a key league game at Ole Miss, 3-0, coming up Tuesday night. LSU led 73-61 after a hoop by Marlon Taylor with 9:19 to play. But, Arkansas […]

  • Streak over: 3 game win streak for Pels ends at Minnesota

    An irritated Alvin Gentry got right to the bottom line. “They were better coached. They played harder,” said Gentry. That after Minnesota rallied to defeat New Orleans Saturday night, 110-106. Karl- Anthony Towns hit a crucial three pointer that snapped a 103-103 tie with just under three minutes to play. Towns had 27 points, and 27 rebounds, most in an NBA game this season. Anthony Davis scored 30 points, and grabbed 14 rebounds. The Pelicans made only 5 of 25 […]

  • Editorial: Saints hope to be dominate up front against Eagles, again

    The Eagles will have to be a lot better up front on both sides of the ball to have a chance against the Saints, Sunday. In the first meeting in November, a 48-7 Saints victory, New Orleans was dominate up front. The Eagles had zero sacks, and only one quarterback hurry. Drew Brees, with a clean pocket, at home in the Superdome is a very bad thing for the opposition. But, the biggest advantage for the Saints was in the […]

  • On line: Saints hope to have starting offensive line intact for playoff game vs Eagles

    The Saints offensive line, one of the best in the NFL, could be intact for Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff game against the Eagles. Tackles Terron Armstead and Jermon Bushrod, and guard Larry Warford were all present for practice Wednesday in the portion of practice that local media is allowed to view. Later, the Saints listed the trio, along with fellow offensive lineman Andrus Peat and Ryan Ramczyk, and defensive end Alex Okafor as limited in Wednesday’s practice. All three were […]
