Saints head to training camp optimistic about Dennis Allen's defense Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-24-2016 01:11 PM


Full Story – NewOrleansAdvocate.Com


Make no mistake about it: The pressure is on the defense as the New Orleans Saints get ready to open training camp this week.

Two years of disappointing 7-9 finishes have left the Saints hungry for a taste of the playoffs.

The difference has to be made on defense. For the most part, Drew Brees has been the same the past two seasons, as devastating and capable as ever of taking Sean Payton's offense to the top of the NFL.

But the offense can only do so much to offset a defense that has finished at the bottom of the NFL for two straight seasons. Now, with Rob Ryan in Buffalo working with his twin brother, the task of rebuilding the Saints defense back to respectable levels has fallen on the shoulders of Dennis Allen, who will install and run a scheme similar to the Gregg Williams defense that helped get Brees and Payton to the Super Bowl.

The key: Saints need to find an improved pass rush to change their fortunes Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-24-2016 01:08 PM


Full Story – NewOrleansAdvocate.Com


Sean Payton saw the problem for the first time during last year’s season opener.

He then had to suffer through watching some variation of it week after week.

That first experience flummoxed him. It flummoxed a lot of people watching the game. How, during that opener against the Arizona Cardinals, did the New Orleans Saints manage to give Carson Palmer 8.07 seconds to find wide receiver John Brown down the field for a touchdown?

It’s an impossible amount of time. The play lasted so long that pass rusher Hau’oli Kikaha was able to apply pressure on Palmer two different times — as the quarterback navigated the pocket and then again as he slipped out to the right side of the field.

What to Watch for -- Saints Training Camp 2016 -- Mike Detillier Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 07-23-2016 11:19 PM


What to Watch for -- Saints Training Camp 2016

By Mike Detillier


The 2016 training camp for the New Orleans Saints is right around the football corner and here are my observations on the “Watch” items during camp and in the preseason.


Finding a Pass Rush

When the 2015 NFL season ended the biggest need for the New Orleans Saints was to find a top edge pass rusher to compliment Cam Jordan.
Well, it is still the biggest need on the 2016 version of the New Orleans Saints.

What the Saints added this offseason to give them an edge rusher was signing journeyman veteran defensive end Daryl Tapp. The 11-year veteran has started just 4 games over the past 6 seasons in the NFL and over the past 3 seasons Tapp has recorded 3 ½ quarterback sacks.

At this stage they are hoping Tapp fills in as a role player defensively along the same lines of another veteran signee in safety Roman Harper.

The signing of Tapp is not likely to put fear in any opposing offense.

The loss of Hau’oli Kikaha to a torn ACL during the offseason workout sessions really put a dent into a position that is crying out for a signature player. What you have now on the roster are three “maybe” players in Obum Gwachum, Kasim Edebali and a player with potential in Davis Tull, if he can stay healthy.

Cam Jordan is the only “front seven” player the Saints have on the defensive roster at this time that would be a surefire “impact” player on any of the other 31 teams.

In the NFL it is all about having a signature player at the quarterback spot and defensive people who can put the opposing quarterback on his back and influence a throw.

Right now, the Saints have just one part of that winning combination. Expect to be in shootout games each week without that constant edge pressure.


Stopping the Run

In any level of football you better stop the run first or teams will just keeping pounding away at you. It doesn’t matter when you get the yardage you have to be able to slam the rushing door shut when needed.

For all the talk of a lack of a pass rush and it certainly was not there, what it masked was the fact that the Saints gave up a whopping 4.9 yards per rush to opposing running backs.

That is unacceptable at any level of...

“Blue” -- NFL Player turned Lawyer

By Mike Detillier

What a football ride it was for Randall “Blue” Gay. The former Brusly High School standout was part of the 2003 LSU football team that won the BCS National Championship and during his rookie season Gay started for the New England Patriots team that won the 2004 Super Bowl XXXIX.

In 2007 Gay was on the New England Patriots team that went 16-0 during the regular season only to get defeated in Super Bowl XLII (17-14) by the New York Giants, which ended their chance to become the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to finish a season undefeated.

In 2008 Gay signed with the New Orleans Saints and was a member of the 2009 Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV championship team.

Gay was released by the New Orleans Saints in 2011 and he began his new career in law.

“To be honest I have competed all my life, and the law is about competing too, only one on one with another lawyer,” Gay said. “I didn’t want to be one of those guys just sitting around for a couple of years and figuring out what to do with the rest of my life so I went back to college and gained my law degree. I had taken the LSAT (Law School Aptitude Test) while I was still playing, so it was always in the back of my mind. I love it and life is always about challenging yourself to do other things.”

But football is always around for Gay, so he put down the legal briefs and became one of the camp counselors for the Pro Football Camp put on by Dr. David Elias and Ortho-LA at Nicholls State.

“I still love football and reflecting back it’s still crazy for me to think that I was part of a National Championship team at LSU, I played in two Super Bowls with the Patriots and then I came to the Saints and won another Super Bowl title here. Most players don’t win more than one title and I won two, and a national championship. I have been blessed to be around great coaches and players. It is the winning formula of finding good people who work hard and really care about one another.”

Gay had some strong feelings about the 2016 LSU Tigers.

“You have the best football player in the country with Leonard Fournette, they have the best group of wide receivers in the country, it’s...
Drew Brees: No contract talks with Saints in last 3 months Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-23-2016 07:19 PM


Full Story –ESPN.Com


Drew Brees won't have a new contract in place before the New Orleans Saints kick off training camp, unless something changes drastically in the next few days.

Even though other quarterbacks like Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco have gotten long-term extensions done this offseason, Brees said Saturday that he and the Saints haven't even resumed negotiations in the last three months.

"Not sure why things have not progressed," said Brees, who is heading into the final year of his contract. "They made an offer in March, we made an offer shortly thereafter. And besides the Josh Norman deal [when the Saints approached Brees about restructuring his contract to try to fit the star cornerback under their salary cap], there has been no talk about a contract since."

Former NFL coach Dennis Green dies at age 67 Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-22-2016 12:15 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Dennis Green, who coached the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals, over 13 NFL seasons, died Thursday night at the age of 67.

"Dennis passed away last night from complications of cardiac arrest," Green's family said in a statement. "His family was by his side and he fought hard."

Green was the second African-American head coach in the NFL's modern era; the Vikings hired Green three years after Art Shell became the Raiders' head coach, according to ESPN.

Travaris Cadet welcomes Saints' running back competition after year of adversity Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-17-2016 02:16 PM


Full Story – NewOrleansAdvocate.Com


Travaris Cadet has been in this position before.

Primed for training camp, ready for a battle on a New Orleans Saints roster loaded with talented running backs. Every other back on the roster — Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower, C.J. Spiller, Marcus Murphy and Daniel Lasco — required a key investment from the Saints, whether it was a free-agent contract or a draft pick.

Cadet is far from deterred. Back in New Orleans after a trying year that forced him through false starts in New England and San Francisco, Cadet flashed his potential as a satellite back at the end of the season, only to land in one of the most heavily-contested spots on the team.

'Going for 2' not as clear cut as it seems, Sean Payton says on radio Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-14-2016 08:56 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


A conventional thought when the NFL moved the extra-point kicking distance back to 33 yards for the 2015 season was that teams would go for two more often.

In some ways, that proved true.

The 93 two-point tries in 2015, according to Pro Football Reference, were a stark increase from the 58 attempts in 2014. Clearly, the longer kicking distance made the chance to put two points on the scoreboard a tad more alluring.

Most analysts cite the Pittsburgh Steelers' league-high 11 two-point tries in 2015 as evidence for a potential shift in this area. Furthermore, seven of those attempts came in the first half of games, a time when only two such attempts were made league-wide in 2014.

Thibodaux/Nicholls State Football “Hub” Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 07-07-2016 02:06 AM


Thibodaux/Nicholls State Football “Hub”

By Mike Detillier


For eight days Thibodaux, Louisiana and Nicholls State University have been the centerpiece for off-season football. The Offensive/Defensive Line Camp which is the largest in America had a record turnout of 522 young men from across the nation.

One day after the Offensive/Defensive Line Camp finished the Manning Passing Academy with 1,200 young men from across the world came rolling into town.

The economic impact in south Louisiana for both camps is estimated to be $4.5 million dollars.

But it also puts the spotlight on the community and the school.

Legendary defensive line coach Pete Jenkins, who has run the camp for over 30 years, was overwhelmed with the turnout.

“It’s amazing on Father’s Day weekend we had the largest turnout ever,” Jenkins said. “Year #1 we had 48 kids come to the camp and for a few years it hovered in the 400’s, but last year we broke the 500 mark for the first time and this year 522. For an old coach it does my heart good to see these young men working here.

Playing along the offensive line or defensive line is not something easy or natural to do. It has to be taught. I have to thank the coaches from around the country, area coaches and even a few players who turn up to help out. We had 17 kids from Maryland have a fundraiser in order to come to Thibodaux. The area has been great to welcome us and Nicholls State is like another home for me. In this 90-degree heat we are so fortunate to have Thibodaux Regional Medical Center and their athletic trainers work this camp so well. None better in my opinion. And Coach Don Rodrigue does a great job helping coordinate the camp. It’s been a great joy to be here over 30 years.”

Former Southeastern University (LA.) head coach and San Francisco 49ers regional scout Oscar Lofton heaped high praise on the ability to organize these two major camps and attract counselors that really work the camp.

“I can remember when Pete (Jenkins) first started up this camp and they didn’t have 50 kids out on the practice field, “Lofton said who worked the camp as a counselor. “It’s important you have people who put their name on these camps like Jenkins, Kevin Mawae is here, Henry Thomas, Ed Orgeron has been involved in this...
Conque… The Flame-Thrower Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 07-07-2016 01:53 AM


Conque… The Flame-Thrower

By Mike Detillier


Last week at the Manning Passing Academy on the campus of Nicholls State University a very familiar name was on hand to be one of the college quarterback counselors.

Zach Conque, the youngest son of former Nicholls State All-American linebacker and current Stephen F. Austin head coach Clint Conque, was impressive throwing the ball during last Thursday’s college quarterback workout day and throughout the weekend as a counselor.

Clint Conque was a standout linebacker at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge before having a stellar college career with the Colonels and he was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame.

While Clint excelled on the defensive side of the ball at Nicholls State his youngest son Zach is making a name for himself at the quarterback position.

Zach’s passing skills caught the eye of former NFL quarterback and patriarch of the Manning family, Archie Manning.

“Eli and Peyton wanted Zach here and they did some recruiting to get him to help out and he not only looks the part physically, he’s a really big young man, but I was impressed with his set-up skills and accuracy with the receivers here,” Manning said. “Every year there are about a dozen teams looking to upgrade the quarterback spot in the NFL and Zach’s an impressive young arm out there.”

The 6-5, 240 pounder who was born in Monroe, Louisiana, was glad to be back in Louisiana to see folks connected to his parents and his dad’s former school.

“It’s been a great experience to come back here to Thibodaux where my dad played college football,” Conque said. “Thibodaux is like another home to me with so many personal connections to my Mom (Angele) and dad (Clint). It’s fantastic to help work with the campers and also spend some time with the Mannings and see just how they stress the fundamental part of the game and it’s about doing the right things all the time and not just some of the time. Playing the quarterback position is so much about timing with your receivers, being ready mentally, helping win games and being a great teammate. When you think about the fact that Peyton Manning won 70% of his games in the pros that is just astounding. That...

The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have signed DE Darryl Tapp and waived tight end Jack Tabb. The announcements were made by Saints’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Tapp, 6-1, 270, is a 10-year NFL veteran who was originally selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech and participated in the Saints' minicamp on a tryout basis in June. He’s enjoyed stints with the Seattle Seahawks, the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions, for whom he played from 2014-15.

The only thing that stands between New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram and the Pro Bowl might be his health.

Ingram is no longer the young first-round pick who struggled to make the transition from Heisman Trophy to the pros; he spent 12 weeks among the NFL's leaders in yards from scrimmage last fall. By almost any measure, he'd pushed his way onto the list of the league's most productive backs.

Then his old adversary reared his ugly head again. With four games left in the season, Ingram tore the rotator cuff in his shoulder, underwent surgery and landed on injured reserve.

Saints offseason report: Drew Brees and Co. should improve if defense stabilizes Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-05-2016 04:59 PM


Full Story –USAToday.Com


As training camp approaches, a major piece of unfinished business continues to linger over the New Orleans Saints' offseason.

Quarterback Drew Brees is entering the final year of his contract, but he and the team have yet to agree to a new deal.

"Do I want to sign an extension? Yes, I do," said Brees, whose salary cap hit for 2016 is $30 million. "Do the Saints feel that way? Yes. Do the fans feel that way? Yes. So we all agree on that."

Saints look like geniuses for trading Jimmy Graham Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 07-01-2016 01:57 PM


Full Story – Yahoo.Com


The New Orleans Saints missed the playoffs in their first season since trading Jimmy Graham. The Seattle Seahawks made the playoffs when they acquired him, even though he was injured in Week 12 and missed the rest of 2015.

But the Saints still won this trade. In 2014, they signed Graham to a four-year extension worth $40 million. He followed it up with a disappointing season in New Orleans, posting 85 receptions for just 889 yards and 10 touchdowns. Getting offensive lineman Max Unger and a first-round pick (Stephone Anthony,) worked out in year one.

Getting rid of Graham’s contract while acquiring two key pieces isn’t the only reason the Saints were geniuses for moving him. Just look at how their offense was without him: Drew Brees led all quarterbacks in passing yards. The Saints scored 25.5 points per game in 2015 (with Brees missing one game,) after scoring 25.1 in 2014.

Drew Brees confident Saints’ young receivers will play beyond years Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 06-30-2016 12:24 PM


Full Story – NewOrleansAdvocate.Com


The old man in the New Orleans Saints’ receiver room is anything but. Brandin Cooks is still only 22 years old, a third-year receiver on the cusp of stardom.

But the 137 catches he’s made in the first two years of his career make Cooks the obvious bell cow of a Saints receiver group that has only one receiver older than the age of 24, and that’s veteran Vincent Brown, a 27-year-old who will have to fight hard for a roster spot in training camp. The top four receivers in New Orleans are Cooks, Willie Snead (23), Brandon Coleman (24) and newly minted draft pick Michael Thomas (23).

“I’ll continue to be who I am, continue to work hard and be a natural-born leader,” Cooks said. “I’m young, but it’s kind of funny, because in a sense, I have the most experience on the team.”

Nerds are no longer a stereotype, not in an age when comic-book movies dominate the box office and high-profile tech companies buy and sell each other for billions of dollars, all while racing to create the next gadget that will find its way into half the hands in the country.

Some stand 6-foot-6, weigh 251 pounds and have the kind of explosive athleticism capable of ripping off 40 yards in 4.51 seconds, blurring the line between jock and nerd into the Saints’ prize offensive acquisition in free agency this offseason.

Coby Fleener freely admits where he stands.
