Henderson living the dream

Fans lined the breezeway outside Brothers on the Boulevard on Saturday to get an autograph from Saints receiver Devery

Henderson.

Henderson, an Opelousas native and second-round draft pick of the Saints in 2004, recently wrapped up his sixth NFL season helping his team to a 31-17 win in Super Bowl XLIV, a game in which he had seven receptions for 63 yards.

Since then, Opelousas and the entire state of Louisiana, for that matter, hasn’t been the same.

Henderson saw firsthand as he entered the store to a multitude of cheers.

“It’s good to see how much the fans appreciate me, the team and what we’ve done,” Henderson said.

NFC South: Land without pass-rushers

Once upon a time, quarterbacks couldn’t blink against an NFC South defense. Next season, they might be able to take a nap out there.

To borrow a phrase from an old friend, “Who scares you out there, bub?’’

Almost nobody in the NFC South. When it comes to pass-rushers, they seem on the verge of extinction in the division.

New Orleans Will Smith is the last member of a dying breed of elite NFC South pass rushers.

New Orleans' Will Smith is the last member of a dying breed of elite NFC South pass rushers.

We’ll start by singling out New Orleans’ Will Smith. He’s the best pass-rusher and best defensive end in the NFC South. He’s probably the only guy who scares anybody these days and that’s more than a little ironic because Smith used to be the guy with the underachiever label.

Super Bowl XLIV: the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts

Fans of the New Orleans Saints have been asking the same question all week leading up to Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida: “‘Who Dat’ gonna beat dem Saints?” They got their answer Sunday night. Nobody. The team battled back from an early deficit and punctuated their victory with an interception return for a touchdown off the usually steady hand of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning’s counterpart on the Saints, Drew Brees, played flawlessly in delivering the first title to the beleaguered city. And the eternal party on Bourbon Street could now add the word “victory” to the celebration. ( 28 photos total)

Some GREAT pictures.. click here to see them !

Jonathan Goodwin Shares His Super Bowl Experience

Saints Pro Bowl center Jonathan Goodwin was a key part of the best offensive line in football, and in the first Super Bowl in team history.  He was kind enough to chat with me about that Super Bowl victory and the season as a whole:

1. First, I have to ask, how would you describe the atmosphere in the Superdome after you won the NFC Championship?
Electric!! As soon as the kick got over the line of scrimmage the fans in the end zone started to celebrate, so at that point I knew it had to be on track to be good. After that it was a man hug session (haha). We all were so excited! Everything that we said we wanted to accomplish had been done. We still had one goal left, but to get to that point was a great feeling for us also. Four years ago we got to that point and came up short and that was one of the worst feelings you can ever experience as a professional athlete.
