The Saints rolled to another preseason victory on Friday, winning their first game in the Superdome in 2014 31-24 over the Tennessee Titans. Storylines from the game include another good performance from backup quarterback Ryan Griffin, matched by a solid outing by incumbent Luke McCown.

Six takeaways from the Saints' preseason win over the Titans

1. Back Up Quarterback Battle: Griffin Continues to Impress Drew Brees sat this one out, still nursing that oblique injury. The absence of #9 gave Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin more time to battle it out for the backup job. Second-year pro Griffin came into to this game seemingly with the advantage after a solid performance last week and continued to state his case. McCown played...

Saints' Payton downplays Griffin's inexperience

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) If record-setting, 13-year veteran Drew Brees misses any meaningful action this season, the next Saints quarterback in line could be a second-year pro without a single regular season snap to his name. Ryan Griffin, signed last year as an undrafted rookie out of Tulane, is establishing himself as a serious contender to unseat 10-year veteran Luke...

Ryan Griffin looks like New Orleans Saints' quarterback of the future

The thought of playing a game without Drew Brees is enough to make most New Orleans Saints fans spontaneously combust. Over the years, more than a few rosary beads have worn thin in prayer for the well being of the Saints' star quarterback, the appeal for divine intervention as much an indictment on Brees' understudies as an endorsement for his brilliance. But Ryan Griffin...

NFL Free Agency Creates Runaway Hype Machine Candidates

NFL Free Agency started Monday, and it appears that the fantasy football hype machine got a tune-up before it started. Hype already out of control on some guys, but a few others deserve it. Six guys that caught our eye so far in free agency: 1. Ryan Griffin, TE, Texans Sleeper status! With Owen Daniels released, huge for Ryan Griffin’s fantasy stock. Bump him up to a TE2 in 2014...

Saints looking seriously at free agent backup quarterbacks

You need only look at what happened during the second half of the 2013 season in Green Bay to realize how important a backup quarterback is to an organization. Drew Brees is a MVP-caliber signal caller, but as of right now the only backup plan for a Brees injury is a rookie out of Tulane by the name of Ryan Griffin. Although Griffin has the profile of a NFL quarterback, it’s too...

Saints Nation: Saints Drop Sloppy Preseason Finale to Dolphins, 21-24

Well that was pretty awful. The Saints turned the ball over four times, including an interception thrown by Ryan Griffin on the final drive inside a minute left with the Saints inside the Dolphins' 10, and had 11 penalties. The Saints were in that position to begin with because Corey White was beaten horribly by a 4th down double move for a 56 yard go ahead touchdown. The Saints...
