Drew Brees Is Nominated For Two Espy Awards

Posted by | June 19, 2019.

Drew Brees finds himself among the most decorated athletes in America.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback continues that tradition this offseason, learning this week that he is up for two ESPY Awards: the Best Record Breaking Performance and Best NFL Player.

This past season, Brees became the National Football League’s all time passing yardage leader, breaking the record formerly held by Peyton Manning in a Monday Night Football victory over the Washington Redskins, when he threw a 63 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith.

Brees also became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for over 500 career touchdown passes, took sole possession of the NFL’s all time record for pass completions, and he broke his own mark for single season completion percentage.

Posted by | June 15, 2019.



Every year in late May or early June Jay Bromley NFL Defensive lineman from Queens, NY puts on a free football Camp in Queens as his way to give back to the community he grew up in through the game that helped shape his life.

Jay Bromley Shoutout To Big Easy Mafia

Bromley joined the Saints after participating in the club’s 2018 rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and will compete for a roster spot in the club’s interior defensive line rotation. Originally selected by the New York Giants in the third round (74th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Syracuse, Bromley has appeared in 55 career regular season games with four starts for the Giants and has posted 76 tackles (47 solo), two sacks and one pass defensed.

The Saints Pick Up Four Undrafted Rookies

Posted by | May 9, 2019.

Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska. The back played in 41 games for the Cornhuskers and started 21 contests over a three year period. The Texas native left school after rushing 419 times for 2,196 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. As a receiver, Ozigbo caught 49 passes for 488 yards. This past season, he led the Huskers with 155 carries for 1,082 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. A quality rushing and receiving prospect.

Kenny Bigelow, DT, West Virginia. After originally beginning his career at Southern California and recording three sacks in 19 games for the Trojans, he missed the 2014 and 2016 seasons because of injury. As a result, he was awarded a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and transferred to West Virginia, starting all 12 games for the Mountaineers this past season, grabbing 20 tackles, two sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. Sean Payton said the Saints would add defensive tackles to the team this year.

Jordan Wyatt, CB, Southern Methodist. A four year starter at school, Wyatt played in 44 games and started 41 of them, concluding his collegiate career with 146 tackles, 32 pass break ups, 11 intercepted passes, eight forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, and one quarterback sack. Wyatt holds the SMU record for 289 interception return yards.

Jake Powell, TE, Monmouth. A three year starter at school, the New Jersey native represents another addition at the tight end position, an area of focus for the Saints, who also signed Jared Cook as a free agent and drafted Alize Mack from Notre Dame. Powell started 20 games and played in 26, catching 54 passes for 642 yards and scoring six touchdowns. He ranked first among tight ends in his conference as a junior, and despite playing just two games as a senior, scored twice off 15 catches.

Take A Ride Down The “Who Dat Nation Highway”

Posted by | April 2, 2019.

You could be driving down the “Who Dat Nation Highway” instead of just plain old I-10 if bill 134 passes through the Senate.

The bill is authored by state Senator Wesley Bishop, D-New Orleans was pre-filed for the upcoming Louisiana legislative session. The bill seeks to rename the Louisiana stretch of I-10 from the Mississippi to Texas state lines as “Who Dat Nation Highway.”

The bill calls DOTD to erect “appropriate” signage provided “local or private” money is available to pay for the signs.

If bill 134 passes it would become effective Aug. 1st.

Calling All Big Easy Mafia Members To Help Make The Movie “GET THE REF!” A Reality

Posted by | March 28, 2019.

Feature film comedy “Get the Ref” seeks Saints fans for financing. Joanne Busch, the president of Prior Military Productions, Inc. (PMP) in West Hollywood, California is reaching out to loyal Saints fans for immediate crowdfunding support.

This is more than a movie. Ever since she witnessed the NOLA No-Call she wanted to do something for the fans and the whole state of Louisiana to make things right. You don’t get that many chances at Super Bowl berth.

Her production company retrains disabled U.S. military veterans (especially those with PTSD and trauma related injuries) in the film/TV industry. Get the Ref! is a comedy written by one of the vets whose family, ironically is in Louisiana. It centers on the now infamous No-Call and specific groups like disgruntled fans, MAFIA members, gamblers and others who decide to find and exact retribution from the ref who refused the call.

It’s a comedy. Don’t read too much into it. It’s like Airplane or The Naked Gun franchises, lots of doggerel or silly jokes. The writer, however, chose to use subtle context of social commentary and current events to bolster the story in a creative way.

The Official “NOLA No Call” #ROBBED Fan Jersey Patch

Posted by | January 28, 2019.



Saints fans will never let the NFL just sweep this catastrophe under a rug like it never happened. Indeed it happened and we will never forget it. We have created a patch to be worn by all Saints fans for the 2019 season and beyond.

It shows the three referees that were involved in the “No Call” #60, #62 and #13. This is what they looked like on the field, cartoonish in character and saying “I heard nothing”….. “I said nothing”….. “I saw nothing”.
The patch is designed very basic and very much like a bad cartoon on purpose, because thats exactly how those officials acted on the field, like a bad cartoon. Please put one of these on your Saints game day gear and spread the word to get one on every Saints fan out there. They will see this next season and it will remind them of how foolish they really were.

A Petition Has Been Created To Replay The Saints vs Rams NFC Championship Game After The “No Call”

Posted by | January 21, 2019.

There has been a petition created to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to replay the NFC Championship game against the Rams after the “No Call” on pass interference. I personally think it will do absolutely no good but I also think it will help in the recovery process, like a venting session. So if you want to make yourself feel a little better then you can sign the petition below.

Thousands of fans have signed an online petition to NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell for a redo of the NFC Championship against the Los Angles Rams.

“Refs missed a blatant pass interference call against the Los Angeles Rams late in fourth quarter of Jan. 20 NFC Championship game, possibly costing New Orleans Saints a trip to the Superbowl. Due to refs’ inability to properly officiate at the game, we the undersigned want a re-match against L.A. on Sunday, Jan. 27. It’s the only fair solution to this travesty of epic proportions,”

Terry Cassreino wrote in his petition. He’s calling for a rematch on Jan. 27.

Saints Take Advantage Of Bye Week To Regroup

Posted by | January 2, 2019.

The reward for earning a bye week for the New Orleans Saints will be a week of introspection.

With no singular opponent to lock on for their NFC Divisional playoff game Sunday, Jan. 13 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the top-seeded Saints (13-3) instead will turned their attention to themselves.

“The focus is improving ourselves,” Coach Sean Payton said Monday. “It’s not at all – anything to do (with) – opponent-driven. With the way we played yesterday (a 33-14 loss to Carolina in the regular-season finale), some of the things that we’ve done offensively recently, our focus is going to be strictly on Saints and the fundamentals and the techniques that we need to improve on.

“They’re all specific to pad level, tackling, blocking. They’re all specific to the fundamentals of our game. We’ve got a lot of things that we’ve got to improve on and this week gives us a chance to do that.”
The offensive dip to which Payton referred likely was the fact that New Orleans scored 14 points or less in three of its final five regular-season games. Sunday’s offensive performance did not include appearances by quarterback Drew Brees, running back Alvin Kamara, receiver Ted Ginn Jr., left tackle Terron Armstead or right guard Larry Warford, who were inactive.

Payton said he was pleased with the performance of No. 2 quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (14 of 22 for 118 yards and a touchdown, with an interception). But the players also know that a return to basics will be helpful.

“It’s a luxury to be in this position, to have a first-round bye, to have an extra week so we can polish up on some techniques,” said offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod, who started six games during the regular season. “And to get back to fundamentals.

The Cleveland Browns have requested permission to interview New Orleans Saints’ assistant head coach and tight ends coach Dan Campbell for their head-coaching job, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Campbell is also being wooed by the Green Bay Packers.

The 42-year-old has been a member of the Saints’ coaching staff since 2016. Prior to his term in New Orleans, Campbell spent six years with the Miami Dolphins, ending his stint in Miami as the team’s interim head coach in 2015 (he went 5-7).

He first arrived with the Dolphins in 2010, beginning his coaching career as an intern. The following year, he was promoted to the role of tight ends coach, a position he held up until being chosen as Joe Philbin’s head-coaching replacement in 2015.

Campbell also had a 10-year NFL career as a tight end, playing for the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions. His most productive season came with the Lions in 2006, where he hauled in 21 receptions for 308 yards and four touchdowns.

New Orleans Saints 2018 Playoff Tickets

Posted by | December 30, 2018.


There may be no other fanbase in the NFL that has been treated to more entertaining football in recent years than that of of the New Orleans Saints. This is thanks in large part to franchise quarterback Drew Brees. Brees enters the 2018 season with the third-most passing yards in NFL history, trailing only Peyton Manning and Brett Favre. Here’s a stat, though, that truly gets to the heart of his greatness: Of the five quarterbacks to post 5,000-yard passing seasons, only Brees has done it more than once. He has done it five times.

The Saints have been a member of the NFL since 1967, and they have played their games in the stadium now known as the Mercedes-Benz Superdome since 1975. After a few scattered playoff appearances throughout their history, the Saints finally broke through with a franchise-best 13 wins and their first ever Super Bowl title in the 2009 season. The title victory over the favored Colts was a galvanizing moment for a city still recovering from Hurricane Katrina years earlier.

There’s A Battle Going On In The NFC

Posted by | December 2, 2018.

Christmas is still several weeks away, but the New Orleans Saints handed an early gift to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday when the Dallas Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints in an upset. It was a win very few people saw coming, opening the door for the Rams to take over the No. 1 seed.

Now with a half-game lead on Saints, the Rams simply have to win out to earn home-field advantage in the playoffs.

However, the Rams only face one team above .500 the rest of the way, and that is the Seattle Seahawks sitting in second place of the NFC West.

New Orleans still has a semi-tough road ahead with two teams above .500.
In an NFC South showdown, the Saints play the Carolina Panthers twice in the final 3 weeks of the season, who are 4 games behind the Saints, sitting in 2nd place of the NFC South at 6-5, and a matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, sitting in first place of the AFC North at 7-3-1.

The Saints are hoping for the Rams to lose to stay on top for the no.1 seed, who as of now owns the tie breaker over the Rams, after stopping there 8 game winning streak.

It’s a tough battle these next 5 weeks for both the Saints and Rams to conquer home field advantage throughout the playoffs, as both teams try to make their way to Atlanta, Georgia for SuperBowl LIII at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
