How did the Superdome become a house of horrors for the New Orleans Saints?

Intimidating. Loud. Powerful. Intense. Energetic. These are the words that you would use when describing not only the Saints play at home but the atmosphere and environment of the Superdome itself. Seeing good complementary football had become the norm for the residents of New Orleans. For eight sundays a year it became what was expected. Unfortunately this year the Superdome magic...

Sean Payton chews out Rob Ryan on sideline (VIDEO)

The New Orleans Saints defense was supposed to improve in Rob Ryan’s second year as defensive coordinator. But the results show quite the opposite, and point toward regression. The secondary, in particular, has been downright awful and looks to be a shell of its former self.

Sean Payton gets on Rob Ryan for poor defense (Video)

The New Orleans Saints defense was nothing more than an oxymoron on Monday night, so it’s no surprise that Sean Payton had some words for his defensive coordinator while they were getting dismantled by the Ravens.
