Saints News 7/19/13: Saints/Pelicans To Launch Daily Online Radio Show Monday

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

It's to be called the "Black and Blue Report" and be a daily 30-minute online radio show focused on the Saints and Pelicans. The debut is Monday at 1:00 PM CST. Not sure how much I like that name for the show. What does this picture of a cheerleader have to do with that announcement? Absolutely nothing. I just think she's hot.

Sean Payton on the evolution of NFL quarterbacks
"If the quarterback is a runner - that's your chance to be physical with that position. It's a position that's so protected in the pocket, but in that formation, he's no different than a halfback," Payton explains.

Saints Questions: Who has the best shot of being a breakout star? | New Orleans
Charles Brown, Junior Galette, Martez Wilson and Kenny Vaccaro. Those four names, to those of us at, represent the likely players who could have a breakout season in 2013.

Most memorable game: For the first time in 16 years, the top seed in each conference reached the Super Bowl and the Colts and Saints put on a show that lived up to its billing. The Colts jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but New Orleans got a pair of second-quarter field goals from Garrett Hartley to cut it to 10-6 at halftime. Then came one of the biggest surprises in Super Bowl history, as Saints Head Coach Sean Payton opened the second half with an onside kick. The ball bounced off Colts wide receiver Hank Baskett, the Saints recovered and promptly marched 58 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. Though the Colts answered with a 76-yard drive capped by a four-yard scoring run by Joseph Addai to retake the lead, 17-13, they would not score again as the Saints rallied to take a 31-17 decision. Trailing 24-17, the Colts had a chance to tie but Tracy Porter intercepted a Manning pass and returned it 74 yards for the clinching touchdown with 3:12 remaining. "I certainly know how it was three years ago when we won," said Manning, a New Orleans native whose father Archie was the Saints franchise’s first true star. "I know the people of New Orleans and the Saints have that same feeling right now."
