“But there’s nothing like sampling a little gumbo, a little jambalaya and then diving face-first into a shrimp boil.” - Chris Low,


Hello folks and welcome to a tasty mix of news and stories related to the Saints’ upcoming game. Like a good gumbo, it is full of all sorts of awesome ingredients and I will even occasionally add the slightly odd piece of news in the stew. Let’s dive in face-first!


Crescent City Gumbo

  • Payton Playing Mind Games: The Saints’ head coach will wait until Sunday morning to name a starter for the Cardinals game.

  • Can Patrick Peterson Guard Mike?: Mike Triplett dives into the appetizing matchup between the Cardinals’ All-pro cornerback and the unstoppable Michael Thomas.


A Taste from the Other Side

  • Three Big Things: Darren Urban sees three big factors that could decide the Saints-Cardinals game.

  • “Pass Rush Assassin”: Outside linebacker Chandler Jones will be the Saints’ offense biggest problem on Sunday. Jones already has 8.5 sacks through seven games, and is delighted by the return of teammate Patrick Peterson.



  • BOOM!: A man in Brazil tried to kill cockroaches that invaded his yard by blowing them up. Yup!
