Best of the Saints' 2015 season

For those fans expecting the New Orleans Saints to rebound after 2014’s big letdown, 2015 was an even bigger slap in the face.  A historically bad defense outweighed a still-potent Drew Brees-led offense, which just wasn’t enough for any consistency, resulting in another losing season.

Gayle Benson implicated in racially harassing an assistant

The former longtime personal assistant to Tom Benson who claims he is owed a significant amount of back pay alleges in new court papers that his dismissal this summer was timed to occur after he was questioned in a mental competency lawsuit filed against the Saints and Pelicans owner early last year.

The Saints' defense gave up a lot of automatic first downs . . .
