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.

Sports Illustrated predicts Saints Super Bowl 49 win

According to senior staff writer Don Banks, “New Orleans will take care of business at home, and that dome-field advantage will prove pivotal to beating visiting Seattle in the glamor NFC title game showdown between a heavyweight offense and heavyweight defense.”

Graham, Saints ready for new ‘wrinkles’

METAIRIE, La. – Much was made of the success the New England Patriots had last year against New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham when they used physical cornerback Aqib Talib against Graham in press coverage.

In fact, probably too much was made of it, as few NFL teams have cornerbacks with that ability and no other teams copied the Patriots’ blueprint after that Week 6 matchup.

But one way or another – whether he’s being pressed by cornerbacks, jammed by defensive ends or harassed by linebackers – Graham knows he’ll keep seeing new wrinkles in the way teams cover him this season.

Observation Deck: New Orleans Saints

Bring on Week 1.

It only took one quarter for Drew Brees to prove he’s ready for the regular season on Saturday night. And the rest of the New Orleans Saints‘ starting units didn’t look too shabby themselves in a 23-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Saints weren’t perfect — especially in the penalty department (10 for 84 yards), which has been a maddening problem this preseason. But they did most of the important things right while cruising to an early 20-7 lead.

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham fined $30,000 for goal-post dunks

It’s a good thing New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham got his contract situation figured out, because the NFL just took a decent chunk of it away.

Graham was fined $30,000 by the NFL for dunking the football over the goal post twice in last Friday’s preseason game, according to numerous sources including the New Orleans Advocate. The NFL actually took it easy on him. As the Advocate pointed out, he could have been fined a little more than $33,000 based on the league’s rules for unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.

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 !!

Observation Deck: New Orleans Saints

By Mike Triplett | ESPN.com

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.
