The 5 NFL Teams Most Likely to Make the 2014 Playoffs

5. New Orleans Saints, 80%

Like we alluded to earlier, the Saints are largely working off the benefit of an impossibly weak division — their closest competition for a playoff berth are the Carolina Panthers, who are currently fielding a platoon of receivers you’ve never heard of and still rely on Cam Newton to be their best running back. So basically, if the Saints can manage to be competent, they’ll find themselves in possession of a postseason birth. That’s a nice position to be in, at least until they have to play somewhere that isn’t a dome (sorry, we can’t help it).

Bobby: Saints brought a butt-whoopin to Carolina!

WWL.com Reporting

The Saints are in first place in the NFC South after a badly-needed road win against the Carolina Panthers, and the Cajun Cannon was very encouraged with the win and the added momentum after the win against Green Bay.

“We have to classify this as a butt-whoopin. Especially in Carolina’s back yard, you win 28-10? Tou shouldn’t be surprised! When you look a the whole game it was 2-1 in a number of categories. Almost 2-1 in total first downs, 27 for Saints, 15 for Carolina, so you talk about sustained drives.. you talk about time of possession, the Saints right at 35 mintues and Carolina only 24. When you look at that and truly break it down, you can say the Saints were in control!”

Bobby had said before the game that the running game was crucial. How did Mark Ingram’s play factor in?

W2W4: Saints at Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s been a rough season for the entire NFC South, but that doesn’t make tonight’s matchup between the visiting New Orleans Saints (3-4) and host Carolina Panthers (3-4-1) any less critical. The winner will take sole possession of first place as the division’s only .500 team.

The Saints are the hotter team. They just played their best game of the season four nights ago in a 44-23 rout of the Green Bay Packers, and Carolina has lost two straight. But the Saints are 0-4 on the road this season and 2-10 over their past 12 road games, including the playoffs.

That stretch includes a gut-wrenching last-minute 17-13 loss at Carolina in Week 16 of last season, which ultimately decided the NFC South title.

The Melatauns !

Great story about Pat and the The Melatauns!

“I’m a diehard. My friends, everyone that knows me, will tell you.”

Ricks’ hope is to share that diehard fandom with the Who Dat Nation. Because though he works through the day as a barber, he’s also the singer with a group called The Melatauns, who recently released a song they hope will function as a new fight anthem for the Saints.

The title says it all: “Take ’Em to the Woodshed.”

We posted the song a while back, way to go Pat !! Who Dat !

Saints sputter again, fall to 0-2 after 26-24 loss at Cleveland

CLEVELAND — The dunk no longer exists. After scoring a pair of touchdowns Sunday, Jimmy Graham tucked the ball under his arm, jogged to the sideline and tossed the ball to someone standing near the bench.

The Saints’ performance Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium was similar to Graham’s new, subdued celebration. There were no thrills, and it was something of a dud for those waiting for this team to slam down an exclamation point on its offseason bravado.

The only difference was New Orleans tripped at the beginning of the game, stumbled at the end and ultimately fell to the Browns 26-24.

Pierre Thomas sets Saints record for running-back receiving yards, approaching mark for catches by running back

He’d finish his day with six catches for 58 yards, which brought his career total up to 2,288 receiving yards. Thomas’ catches also brought him to within seven grabs of surpassing another franchise record: that of most receptions by a running back, which Reggie Bush set with 294 between 2006 and 2010 before becoming a Miami Dolphin and then a Detroit Lion.
