Just had lunch at Bobby Hebert’s Canju Cannon and it was very enjoyable. In fact one of my favorite dishes was the Fresh Louisiana Oysters on the half-shell, chargrilled over an open flame, smothered with our unique zesty garlic and herb cajun cream sauce, finished with a fresh blend of Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Cannot wait to see what the founder of the Who Dat Nation has next for me to enjoy !
Make sure you visit soon and support Bobby !!

NEW ORLEANS — Although the New Orleans Saints beat the Tennessee Titans 31-24, coach Sean Payton will be seething over the stunning amount of penalties his team committed. The Saints finished with 22 of them (14 in the first half) and had at least four others declined. Payton was already upset when the Saints committed 10 penalties a week ago.
No, Pierre Thomas has not become the odd man out in the Saints’ three-way time-share at running back. After sitting out the first preseason game, he was heavily involved Friday — especially as a pass-catcher and pass-protector on third downs. Thomas caught three passes for 27 yards. As I’ve been saying, I expected to see him in Darren Sproles‘ old role tonight. … The Saints’ run game wasn’t very effective Friday, but Mark Ingram did catch a 23-yard touchdown pass — showing that he’ll have a chance to play a more versatile role this year in the Saints’ offense.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has largely ignored the NFL’s efforts to stamp out his signature touchdown celebration.
But after he dunked the football over the crossbar of the goal post for a second time Friday night, Graham may have fueled a conflict with his head coach.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va — All-Pro Saints tight end Jimmy Graham won’t be able to get around the NFL’s ban on dunking this upcoming season by finger-rolling or shooting the ball over the field goal’s crossbar.
It will all constitute using the ball as a prop illegally and draw a flag for a 15-yard penalty, NFL referee Gene Steratore said Saturday morning during a media briefing at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.
“That was the question I had yesterday — look, if it’s a clean dunk or a finger roll, I mean, come on,” Steratore said. “But no — (that’s a) prop. We just have to go prop.”

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Undrafted rookie safety Pierre Warren continued to “flash” on the New Orleans Saints‘ practice field Monday morning — this time diving to intercept a pass that was dropped by receiver Brandon Coleman in full-team drills
Earlier in camp, Warren also forced and recovered a fumble against running back Derrick Strozier. The former Jacksonville State standout has also made a handful of nice pass break-ups over the past few days.
And the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder clearly showed coaches something they liked long before this week — because he spent all of organized team activities and minicamp working with the second-string defense (taking advantage of starter Jairus Byrd‘s injury absence).
Obviously it’s way too early to grant Warren a spot on the 53-man roster based on a handful of highlights. He’s probably had his share of low moments, too, that aren’t always visible to the naked eye. (For instance, Warren was involved in a secondary breakdown Sunday that left a receiver wide open, but it was unclear who missed the assignment).

The 12th man might be the most die-hard fanbase in the NFL, but its pretty much secluded in the Pacific Northwest. Drew Brees is a fan favorite in the South and this map reinforces that.

Well, it is not a spitting fan, but it’s close.
Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters said the Saints “got lucky”
with their 26-24 win at Philadelphia on Saturday, according to Geoff Mosher of Philly’s ComcastSportsnet.
Eagles cornerback Cary Williams took it a step further, according to Mosher’s report. Williams said, “We lost to a team that wasn’t necessarily better than us. They weren’t better than us. Period.”
New Orleans could probably argue both points. Besides holding the NFL’s leading rusher, LeSean McCoy, to 77 rushing yards, the Saints also racked up 434 total yards.
