Here’s a Thought: Lions Should Forfeit Colts Game, Take Two Weeks to Prepare for Saints

Filed under: Colts, Lions, Saints, NFC North, NFL Fans, NFL CoachingDesperate times, I guess. The Lions are staring 0-16 right in the face, and with three weeks left in the season, there really doesn’t seem to be any way out of it. They came close against the Vikings yesterday, but they have to travel to Indy this week, then host the Saints, before closing out this fiasco in Green Bay.

After a slow start, the Colts have won six in a row and barring an implosion, are virtually guaranteed a wild-card spot. Which is why NFL.com’s Adam Schefter mentions the unmentionable: Detroit should forfeit against Indianapolis.

You know, like they’re a rec league kickball team or something. But Schefter doesn’t make this suggestion willy-nilly, he actually has a plan (Rod Marinelli asks: “What’s a plan?”):Continue Reading

Federal Judge Blocks Suspensions

Filed under: Saints, Vikings, NFC North, NFC SouthGreat news for Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints fans. Maybe.

A federal judge has blocked the suspensions of five players, including Vikings Pro Bowl defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams. The five were banned for the last four games of the NFL regular season after testing positive for a banned diuretic over the summer and eventually having their appeals heard and denied.

The legal process started Wednesday, when the Williamses (not related) took their case to a district court in Minneapolis. There they convinced a judge to issue a temporary restraining order blocking the suspensions and allowing the two to return to practice.

Both tackles have returned to practice, and actually were at the Vikings’ facility Friday instead of at the hearing over this latest legal action.

Thursday, the NFL Players’ Association sued on behalf of the Williamses and the three affected Saints players, which include defensive linemen Charles Grant and Will Smith, along with running back Deuce McAllister.Continue Reading

NFLPA Sues to Block Suspensions

As expected, the NFL Players Association has filed suit in federal court asking that suspensions of six players be overturned.

From the Associated Press story via Access Vikings:
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports the union is going to ask for a ruling by Friday, meaning that the involved teams are left twisting in the wind regarding the availability of their players.

Houston’s Bryan Pittman isn’t included in this lawsuit.

This filing comes less than 24 hours after a Twin Cities judge issued a temporary restraining order to block the suspensions of the two involved Vikings.

NFL Suspends Charles Grant, Will Smith, Deuce McAllister, Kevin Williams, Pat Williams

Dec 2nd 2008 5:10PM by Michael David Smith (author feed)
Filed under: Falcons, Saints, Texans, VikingsThe NFL has suspended six players for four games apiece for using a banned substance.

The players are Saints defensive linemen Charles Grant and Will Smith, Saints running back Deuce McAllister, Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams and Texans long snapper Brian Pittman.

The players all tested positive for the banned substance Bumetanide. They all appealed the suspensions, saying that Bumetanide is an ingredient in the over-the-counter supplement Star Caps, and that the NFL did not tell players that Star Caps is banned. But the NFL turned down their appeals.

Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jackson was not suspended even though it has been reported that he also tested positive for Bumetanide. The NFL did not explain why Jackson was not suspended.

UPDATE: The NFL’s official announcement is below.Continue Reading

Suspended Players May Apply for Injunctions

The NFL Tuesday suspended six players, including Vikings defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams, for taking a banned diuretic.

Normally, suspended players go quietly into the, well, wherever suspended players go to quietly serve their time.

This is likely to be an exception to that rule.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, live on television Wednesday morning, indicated that a filing was coming, and he made it sound like all six suspended players would be filing for injunctions.Continue Reading

Tornado Watch Issued for Tampa Bay, Could Cause Problems For Bucs-Saints

Hopefully those with tickets for today’s NFC South tilt between Tampa Bay and New Orleans packed some extra rain gear, and perhaps, if the worst case scenario plays out, are prepared to bolt themselves to their seats. As it turns out, there’s a tornado watch issued for the Tampa Bay area until 5 PM EST. The Bucs and Saints kick off at 1 PM EST. Yeah, that could be a problem.

Hopefully, for the safety of everyone involved, and the people that live in those areas, it remains just a watch, and no tornado ever develops.

Either way, weather should be a factor in this game, which is probably good news for the Buccaneers, seeing as how no defense in the league has been able to contain Drew Brees. Perhaps a rain-soaked, muddy field could help the process.

Just prior to yesterday’s Florida-Florida state game, also played in a steady downpour, the sideline reporter asked Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden how he planned to slow down Tim Tebow. His response: “We’re hoping the weather will.”

I imagine Buccaneers fans are thinking the same thing about Brees.

Sean Payton’s Saints Have Had No Backbone
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Nov 30th 2008 6:04PM by Tom Mantzouranis (author feed)
Filed under: Saints, NFL CoachingI was talking to FanHouse Head of Zebra Accountability, Matt Snyder, when the Bucs took a 20-10 lead over the Saints with plenty of time left in the third quarter of today’s eventual 23-20 Tampa win. To me the game was, for all intents and purposes, over at that point, though Snyder raised the reasonable, logical point that there was plenty of time for one of the league’s elite offenses to erase a 10-point deficit.

With most teams, a lead like that with so much time left is practically irrelevant. With powerhouses like the Giants, Patriots, or Colts, you could stick them with a 10-point deficit with less than five minutes left and I still wouldn’t close the book on the game. Yet in Sean Payton’s three years, the Saints have displayed an inability to overcome adversity. Today’s game was just the same ole song and dance for Saints fans who have been able to mark wins and losses in ink by halftime.

Say what you will about Aaron Brooks (and I’ve said plenty, most of which is not suitable for this space), but he had 16 fourth-quarter comebacks in his career in New Orleans, including five in 2004. Under the Payton/Drew Brees regime, the Saints are a mind-boggling when trailing after three quarters. Though Brees is greatly responsible for this one particular loss, he’s also orchestrated 12 late-game comebacks in San Diego, so I tend to believe the onus falls on Payton.Continue Reading

Buccaneers 23, Saints 20: Tampa Bay Stops Drew Brees
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Nov 30th 2008 8:20PM by Adam Gretz (author feed)
Filed under: Buccaneers, Saints, NFC SouthDespite the possibility of tornado’s, and a steady monsoon-like rain throughout the day, the Buccaneers and Saints managed to score 43 points as Tampa Bay kept pace with Carolina in the NFC South, pulling out a huge 23-20 win.

The win improves Tampa Bay to 9-3 on the season, and sets up a huge contest with Carolina next Monday, in a game that very well could decide the NFC South title.

So, while Drew Brees finished the day 25-of-47 for 297 yards and a pair of scores, he also threw three interceptions, including a brutal pick over the middle, in a tie game, with just over two minutes to play in regulation. Jermaine Phillips picked off the Brees pass, returning it 13 yards to the New Orleans 17-yard line.

Three plays later, Matt Bryant booted a 37-yard field goal for the eventual game-winning score.

The Saints final possession ended when Brees threw his third pick of the day, this time when Phillip Buchanon stepped in front of a pass intended for Lance Moore.

While Brees was tossing interceptions, he received absolutely no help from his running game, as the Buccaneers dominant (and extremely underrated) run defense held the Saints to just 44 yards on 18 carries. Their longest run of the afternoon was nine yards.Continue Reading

Saints’ Jason David Denies Doing Crip Walk, Says Dance Is Not Gang Related

Filed under: SaintsWhen New Orleans Saints cornerback Jason David picked off a pass on Monday against the Green Bay Packers, this is how he celebrated:

That dance, as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk noted, looks like the Crip Walk, a dance that was originally associated with the Crips street gang.

That could be a problem for David, as the NFL specifically stated during the season that it would be on the lookout for players using gang signs on the field. But David says he wasn’t doing the Crip Walk.Continue Reading
