Rumors have been swirling around the New Orleans Saints like wildfire. The Jimmy Graham trade triggered rampant speculation that "everyone" was on the trading block, including Drew Brees. Head coach Sean Payton isn't fond of gossip. The coach spent an hour answering reporter's questions Wednesday in Phoenix.
Much has been made of the Saints salary cap issues. They've been restructuring contracts and making cuts for the past week. The release of Pierre Thomas didn't shock me. Releasing the the league's 5th leading tackler, Curtis Lofton, did. Then the blockbuster of the day...
I read a quote years ago, from then Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert, "When you're winnin', you walk on water. When the team's not playin' well, they want to hang you from the nearest tree." That's the life of an NFL quarterback.
We're seeing indications the Saints may have righted the ship. They demolished a tough Green Bay team 44-23. Mark Ingram had a career day, rushing for 172 yards on 24 carries. Drew Brees became the first player in NFL history to pass for 300 yards in 6 consecutive games against one opponent.
Sunday's game against the Lions at Ford Field could prove pivotal for the Black & Gold. The Lions lead the league in quarterback sacks, and fewest points allowed. The Saints have done a great job of protecting Drew Brees so far this season, only allowing 4 sacks. A lot of people seem to think the Saints offense isn't the powerhouse they've been in recent years.
