Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/23/13

Reports are coming out today that ESPN backed out of an upcoming PBS 'Frontline' documentary on player safety and concussions after Goodell and the league office pressured them to do so. A disappointed NFLPA is now questioning ESPN's trustworthiness. George Attalah noted that between the lockout, the Saints' bounty situation, and the ongoing negotiations for HGH testing, the union has been disappointed by how many reporters "take the league's story whole hog." With ESPN seemingly acquiescing to the NFL's wishes on the 'Frontline' documentary, the NFLPA says it'll be harder to separate reporters from league mouthpieces.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/22/13

Colston is not expected to play this week against the Texans. In other news, The 49ers have signed QB Seneca Wallace. Did they not see last weeks Saints vs. Raiders game?

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/21/13

The former no. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft (Rams) was outplayed by both Charles Brown and rookie Terron Armstead in Saints training camp and preseason. Good luck to him. In other more alarming news, Pro-Bowl guard Jahri Evans missed practice today due to an undisclosed ailment. Pardon me while I assume the worst and soil myself. Let's hope it's only minor and he returns to practice tomorrow.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/20/13

Both were reportedly in full pads today. Woo HOOOO! In other news, Brees tells ESPN that "Kenny Stills is a bigger version of Lance Moore" and "Nick Toon reminds him of Vincent Jackson." AWESOME!

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/19/13

Anyone that's been watching the Saints in preseason action over the past two weeks can't possibly be surprised by this news. For whatever reason, Wallace looked absolutely horrible against the Raiders last week. I truly felt bad for him. He looked lost out there. On the other hand, Luke McCown looked very good the week before against the Chiefs. Sure, McCown isn't exactly Drew Brees, but of the two veteran QBs signed by the Saints to back up no. 9, McCown is clearly the better choice. Rookie Ryan Griffin (even he looked much better than Wallace!) is most likely headed to the practice squad for further development as Coach Payton's next QB project. UPDATE: Steve Breaston, Patrick Crayton and many other players were also released. See below for details.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints Gameday News 8/16/13

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/15/13

The surgery is being performed to reduce some of the swelling and discomfort he's been experiencing in the knee. He's expected to miss the remainder of the preseason and return for the regular season home opener against the Falcons.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/14/13

ESPN is reporting that a 'league source' confirmed Vilma went there to get a second opinion on an undisclosed injury. Let's hope it's not a serious injury. I was hoping to see him suit up and play in Rob Ryan's new defense.

Saints Linebacker Martez Wilson: Ebb & Flow

The season ending injury to Victor Butler has brought about opportunity for a number of Saints players in training camp. I have my eye on one player who I feel is the perfect fit to fill the void. I delve into the background of Martez Wilson for this edition of "Uptown's Football Science."

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/13/13

After coaches controversially ruled Jimmy Graham down during a spirited two-minute drill instead of awarding him the TD and later after Malcolm Jenkins stepped in front of Lance Moore for a Drew Brees INT, defensive players reportedly didn't hold back their celebration because this win meant that offensive players had to run extra gassers. The Graham Reaper insists he wasn't down and would have scored the TD after he caught a 65-yard bomb from Breesus. It's nice that the defense is winning some battles. I'm not worried about the offense.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/12/13

The Saints have added yet another veteran wide receiver to the mix. What does this mean for the young receivers already on the team and who, as far as we fans can tell, have been looking very good so far in camp and preseason?

Fleur-de-Links: Saints Training Camp News Aug. 11

Today the Saints have a closed practice (no live tweeting by the media, and the fans are shut out!) late in the afternoon following a player's day off on Saturday. In other news, Pat Y. stopped by Saints HQ for his Camp Confidential installment, and former Saints WR Robert Meachem may have a broken-down body.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/9/13

The Saints will face the Chiefs at 8:00 ET tonight in the Superdome. I'm excited to finally see Sean Payton back on the Saints' sideline complete with visor and headset after a year and a half away in forced exile. I'm even more excited for the premiere of the last eight episodes of a certain totally awesome TV drama Sunday night. Beware Heisenberg and his Blue Sky!

Saints Lose Key Transitional Players For Season

The Saints have lost two defensive free agents to season ending injuries, both of whom had experience in the new defensive scheme. Are these losses more devastating than they appear on the surface?

Continue

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/8/13

There are several internet articles out today saying don't blame S Kenny Vaccaro for WR Joe Morgan's season-ending knee injury. I find this odd. Joe Morgan apparently got this going when he tweeted the same shortly after he was injured in Saturday's scrimmage. Soon after, other Saints players said the same thing. Who's blaming Vaccaro? Were there Saints fans there that booed Vaccaro after the play? We didn't even know Vaccaro was involved until Morgan tweeted to not blame him and, as far as we know, Vaccaro made a clean tackle with no intent to injure. The Saints' most recent first round draft selection endured some criticism last week for getting into a little heated exchange with TE Jimmy Graham during practice, but that doesn't make him a reckless trouble-maker. As far as I know, most Saints fans appreciate Vaccaro's enthusiasm and look forward to him injecting some spark into a defense that was the worst ever last season. Are any Who Dats truly upset with Vaccaro over this?

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/7/13

Coach Payton announced today that WR Joe Morgan (knee) and DE Kenyon Coleman (chest) have sustained season-ending injuries that require surgery. If that wasn't bad enough, RB Pierre Thomas, DE Junior Galette, and CB Keenan Lewis (among others) left practice early today. Payton didn't elaborate on the exact reasons these many players went to the training room early, but he did mention that the intense Louisiana heat at practice was a major factor. Heat exhaustion may be the reason why Galette and Lewis left early (I hope!), but Thomas was reportedly limping to the training room. Not a good sign.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints Camp News 8/6/13

Coach Payton would not elaborate on the extent of the injury and only said he would give an update once he learns more. Larry Holder tweeted that Coleman slammed down his helmet in frustration right before exiting the field. That sounds like someone who's upset because he knows he just sustained a pretty significant injury. I hope that's not the case because injuries to starting defensive linemen are starting to pile up.

Laurent Robinson Visit to Saints is Puzzling

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/4/13

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that Robinson will work out for the Saints on Monday. Robinson has already visited with the Jets, Dolphins, Lions and 49ers. His last stint was with the Jaguars last year, where he suffered a series of concussions that caused him to miss nine games. Could he simply be a potential camp body while Colston and Morgan recover from injuries or does he have a legitimate chance to make the final roster?

Will Smith Isn't Ready To Say Goodbye

Is Will Smith a man without a position or a veteran that Rob Ryan plans to use all over the place? The answer could mean a roster spot.

Fleur-de-Links: Saints News 8/3/13

Junior Galette may have had the best day. He reportedly was applying consistent pressure and produced two sacks. In other less welcome news, WR Joe Morgan was injured and was reportedly carried from the field. He tweeted afterwards that he is doing well, so maybe we can assume it's not as serious as it sounds. Coach Payton wouldn't give any specifics on injuries.

Said the 59-year-old fan after security and police tackled and subdued him, "I just wanted to try out."

Fleur-de-Links: Saints Camp News 8/1/13

The 6-foot-4, 218-pound receiver has so far taken full advantage of a wide open battle for one of the roster spots at the WR position. Drew Brees says of Toon "ever since coming into training camp, the light bulb is coming on." Speaking of Brees, it turns out he is absolutely NOT a cheap tipper. It's been confirmed that he tipped $3 for a take-out order and NOT a dine-in order as the douchebags at a website that doesn't deserve to be named tried to make everyone believe.

The Saints' young first round draft selection took to Twitter to defend himself against any "dirty player" accusations after it was reported he "scuffled" with TE Jimmy Graham yesterday during practice. See the first group of tweets below. He says he "never purposely threw a football at Jimmy and/or hit anyone outside of a padded drill." In other news, the NFL radically changes the Pro Bowl.

Ingram is reportedly in outstanding physical shape this year and appears to be running like a wrecking ball in OTAs and camp. He's already responsible for taking out Victor Butler's ACL during earlier OTA's when the two collided during what was supposed to be a non-contact practice. Yesterday, he reportedly busted Vilma's nose to the point that stitches were required to close the wound. Vilma was limited in practice today. Is this the year the Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama explodes and lives up to his 1st round draft status?

Payton said afterwards that he didn't think Wilson's injury is very serious. Who Dats know from experience when he says that it means the player's injury could be anywhere from "not serious at all" to "we just fitted him for a toe tag." Let's hope Wilson's elbow will allow him to return soon. The Saints D needs all the pass rushers they can muster.
