    Saints ready for new run in Season 5

    New Orleans, LA - Savage Mason Reporting

    Year 4 was, interesting to say the least. A promising 5-0 start which watched the Saints steam roll most of their opponents, began to unravel as a 4-6 ten game stretch quickly arrived when the Saints lost most of their starters to injury, which included QB Drew Brees for 10 weeks. Saints were able to pull it all together and Bree was able to get his team in the playoffs, but only knocked out in the first round by a very un-beatable bears team that day.

    "We did nothing right and they did nothing wrong. I am not sure anyone could have beaten that team that day in that stadium", Coach Nate.

    But today marks the start of a new beginning for the Saints and their coaching staff. After making the playoffs for the last 2 years, anything short of the playoffs is a bad year. The Panthers have set the mark as the team to beat, but with new fresh blood in the NFC South, things could get interesting if the Saints don't get off to a fast start.

    It was a pretty quiet offseason for the Saints. Looking to only make a few moves, the Saints were mainly worried about building around what they had. Out was RB P. Thomas and in is WR P. Garcon. Garcon will not put together one of the best WR corps in the NFC and maybe the OMFL. Bring back a pro bowl QB in Brees and the Saints offense looks to explode this year. Brees - " We really wanted to add some more speed to our WR corp and I'm excited about getting on the field with a healthy Henderson, a much improved, possibly the most improved on the team, Meachem, and a new Garcon. The one thing that we were missing last year that we had the year we went to the Championship was a strong back to pick up those tough yards. That really opened up our offense and with Shonne Greene coming in, I think the sky is the limit for this offense." Greene will bring a tough presence to the Saints offense and allow Bush to be more explosive out of the back field. It should be a thunder and lightning duo that equals what Keller and Jacobs did 2 seasons ago as the Saints found their way to the NFCC.

    Saints defense also added some firepower to the defensive side of the ball, the side of the ball which struggled the most and seen the most injuries last season. Out was DE Smith, FS Sharper, OLB Shanle just to name a few. In comes rookie DT Edwards, rookie DE LaCoste, rookie FS duo Hatchie and Windsor, DT Solioui, and LB Herring. Saints have added youth and speed to a old and slow defense - improvement will have to be seen on the field one way or the other.

    We have goals and we have to reach them. Ya the injuries were bad last year but its football, you've gotta roll through it. We've worked hard on doing what we could this offseason to use the draft and FA's to really strengthen our weaknesses and depth. I like our changes - Coach Nate.

    Saints kick the season off against the NY Giants and Coach Dave. A quick start is a must in a very competitive NFC South.

    Saints Show Rust - Bush Bust Balls - Saints Win On Last Second Kick
    New York, NY - Savage Mason Reporting



    [​IMG]
    Saints travel to NY to kick off season 5 against the Gmen and Coach Dave. Both teams coming off a up and down season 4 and look to get started quickly. Saints bring a revamped offense and a faster defense, while the Giants are looking to bash people in the face with Jacobs and tear up the air with Eli and those great WR's.

    First game started off hot for the Saints. Scoring on a 93 yard td pass to henderson, 75 yard td run from Bush, the Saints jumped up early. Giants battled back but a DC caused a restart.

    Second game was much more of the same for the Saints offense. First play from scrimmage Brees hit new WR Garcon for a 60 yard td pass and catch for the early 7-0 Saints lead.

    Bush comes back on the 2nd drive and bust it up the middle untouched for a beautiful 28 yard td run to make it 13-0 Saints after a missed XPT.

    2nd quarter would be all Giants though as they would come back with long clock eating drives. Jacobs would get them on the board with a 7 yard td run early in the 2nd to make it 7-13 Saints.

    Right before half, both teams would trade punts and ints, Brees had a tough day with lots of rust, as the Giants get a fg with 1:55 left before half to make it 10-13 Saints.

    Brees would be try and drive the Saints again, but a stupid throw to the flat was picked off by Pollard who takes it back 26 yards for the TD and a 17-13 Giants lead.

    After half both teams would feel each other out and both D's would play much better. Bush would break loose though on a 71 yard td run to take back the lead 19-17 after another missed XPT. Two things would kill the Saints today, missed XPT and quick strike and score offense.

    4th quarter would be all kickers as this game came down to the wire. Giants would get a FG late to take the lead 20-19 with just under 3 mins to go in the game.

    Saints would have to drive and get something going quickly. Brees would catch fire and get the Saints down for a 34 yard fg try as time expired. Hartley hit this one perfect to win the game 22-19.

    RB REGGIE BUSH
    Reggie Bush had an amazing day today. Problem was it was too good. 143 yards and 2 tds but only 8 carries, because he broke almost every one of them. That and he's splitting time with Thunder of the group in Greene who had a decent day himself. Saints need more of this from Bush because it will really open up Brees and these great WRs, neither who had a great day because of Bush today.

    Saints Stop Slide - Still Struggle In Beating Bears
    Chicago, IL - Savage Mason Reporting


    [​IMG]
    Saints travel to Chi town in Week 7, carrying a 4 game losing streak, 3 of which were won as time expired by a combined 10 points. Not the way you want to start the season. A big problem for this season has been Drew Brees. He simply hasn't played good football, good plays aren't being called, and an improved defense still gives up too many big plays in crucial situations. The Bears aren't playing much better right now though, and one team had to get a victory.

    Saints start the game off pounding the ball. It was a key to stay in the game, run the ball or get ran out of town. Saints would cap off their first drive with a 7 yard run from 3rd stringer Brown. 7-0 Saints.

    Bears would answer right back though with a drive that took only 2 plays. Saints defense was caught jumping a short route and Cutler would find Olsen behind the defense on a post for an easy 75 yard td score. 7-7 ball game.

    Chicago would play great defense and would force 3 Saints 1st quarter fumbles, recovering all but 1 of them. Bears would capitalize on one in the 1st quarter with a 18 yard td pass to Hester for a 14-7 lead. Things were not feeling good or looking good for the Saints.

    Back to the ground game went NO with another long drive. This time capped off by Greene with a 2 yard td run to tie the game at 14 each.

    Right before halftime the Bears would take the lead on a Gould 22 yard fg for a 17-14 halftime lead.

    Bears would receive in the 2nd half and get right back on the score board with a 49 yard fg from Gould to make it 20-14.

    Saints would answer though with a 4 yard td run from Greene, his 2nd on the day. (It says I went for 2 points, but I really really don't remember doing that). 20-20 tie.

    Hester would give the Bears the lead going into the 4th quarter with a 55 yard td pass from Cutler. 27-20 Bears.

    4th quarter would be all Saints. Henderson would finally show up. On a short route to the right, Henderson makes the grab, makes 2 defenders miss, and is off to the races for a 71 yard td pass from Brees to tie the game at 27 each early in the 4th.

    With the game tied and time running out, NO looked to just get into fg range and not leave time on the clock for ANOTHER last second fg to beat them. Henderson would make a grab on a post though and be off to the races again for a 57 yard td catch from Brees. 35-27 saints.

    Saints would get the ball back and take the V formation for their 2nd victory on the year.

    WR DEVERY HENDRSON​
    Henderson would show up late with 2 huge td grabs of 51 and 78. Saints needed Hendersons big play ability. Things just seem to be off. After the first 5 games of last season henderson has be injured and just disappeared. SAints need him back and need to run the routes that get him the ball, no matter what other owners say.​

    Saints Stun Jags - Stop Longest Winning Streak In OMFL History
    Chicago, IL - Savage Mason Reporting

    [​IMG]
    The 2 win NO Saints would travel to face the winningest team in OMFL history, the Jags, who hold a 25 game winning streak and is the first team in OMFL history to go undefeated for a season and a half. Things were not looking so great for the low Saints.

    Jags would kick and force the Saints to punt after a decent drive that stalled. Jags would make the Saints pay right away getting on the score board with a 37 yard fg from Scobee. 3-0 Jags.

    Saints would answer right back with one of their own, a Hartley 50 yard fg to tie the game at 3. Even thought both teams would put up a lot of points today, this game really came to two teams who played very good D today and really forced both teams into a chest match.

    Scobee would get the Jags back on the score board late in the 2nd quarter with a 46 yard fg to make it 6-3 Jags. There was some wind and a little bit of lag, but both teams seem to be getting through it pretty even. This would be an issue late in the game.

    Saints would get the ball and look to score before half, hopefully taking momentum. Brees would find Graham on a 13 yard td pass to give the Saints the first lead on the day with 1:48 left before half. 10-6 Saints.

    Second half would see a lot more scoring as both teams began to get the ball rolling downhill.

    Stafford would hit a huge 52 yard bomb to a perfectly thrown Underwood for a 13 - 10 lead.

    Saints would answer back with a long drive of their own as Brees would find a rarely used FB Evans on a 4 yard td catch with 4 mins to go in the 3rd quarter. 17-13 Saints.

    The Jags would reach deep in the playbook and on a 3rd and inches pull out a reverse. Yes, the same reverse you have all tried to run a million times and get hit 5 yard deep in the backfield, except this time Kimble breaks it 71 yards for the td. The Jags would miss the XPT though and make the score 19-17 Jags.

    The 4th quarter would see both teams punt the ball to start, this was until late in the 4th when things got really crazy.

    With 4 mins to go in the game, Hartley would take the lead for the Saints with a 39 yard fg to make it 20-19 Saints.

    Jags would begin to get something going, but Saints CB Robinson reads the play, jumps the route and takes it back 43 yard for the pick six. 27-19 Saints.

    Jags wouldn't give up though and pull out one of the best drives of the year. Using every play in the book and just about ever down they were given the Jags finally score with 24 seconds in the game on a 15 yard pass right between 2 defenders on a amazing throw from Stafford. 2 point conversion was good and the game was tied with 24 seconds to go at 27 each.

    Saints had all 3 time outs and were looking to get into fg range and just squeak one out.

    After a few first downs the Saints were right at midfield and still had 2 time outs left. Saints called a post in the middle with a fly route on the right of the post. Brees was simply looking to hit something in the middle of the field and take a timeout to set up a fg, instead the cb for the Jags lets Brown get wide open behind him for a 56 yard td pass with just 6 seconds to go.

    Saints would squib kick and take the win 34-27.

    Great game @sdunlap . I got lucky with that last play but it was one of the straightest games i've ever had with you. it was fun to actually try and outsmart a guy instead of having to outcheese him to win. gl rest of the way.

    QB DREW BREES

    Drew tossed 260 yards and 3 tds today, but the real story of the game was his 40 yards rushing. on the last drive of the game Brees would see the Red Sea part in front of him and scamper for a 20 yard gain, which set up his big pass to Brown. If Brees gets his act together, Saints can contend, if not, they can't.​

    Saints Keep Streak Alive - Beat Up On Colts
    Indianapolis, IN - Savage Mason Reporting


    [​IMG]
    The NO Saints would travel to Indy to face the hurting Colts. Saints are beginning to put together a string of games, while the only thing the Colts seem to be stringing together is injuries. PT would face his old team, as would Garcon.

    Saints would get the ball first and begin to eat up the clock, both passing and running. Brees would catch the Colts napping on D and hit Graham for a 67 yard td pass to take the early lead 7-0.

    Quickly in the 2nd quarter Bush would take it in from 3 yards out to make it 14-0 Saints.

    2 plays later Jordan would pick up a fumble, break 3 tackles and stumble into the endzone for the defensive TD. 21-0 Saints.

    Two drives later Belcher steps in front of a Manning pass for the pick six, and to drive the nail in the Colts plans. 28-0 Saints.

    Both teams would tack on field goals right before the half and the Saints would mass sub both O and D.

    Brown would get a td, his first in the OMFL, in the 3rd; while Manning would get his td in the 4th.

    Saints D

    Saints held the mighty Colts to 64 yards rushing and 101 yards passing. The rattled Manning all day and the Colts never really had a shot. Saints get a few breaks and the NFCS is a whole lot tougher.

    Saints And Lions Battle It Out In OMFL Insta-Classic
    New Orlenas, LA - Savage Mason Reporting

    [​IMG]
    The Mighty Lions traveled to NO for a OMFL battle of epic proportions. Lions were looking to get a big win down in the big easy and stay atop of the NFCC, while the Saints are still scrapping and fighting to save a season that went south like the birds, quickly.

    Saints would receive first and get right to business. Early on this would be the Reggie Bush show as every run seemed to go for 10+ yards. Bush would run so much that he'd be too tired to carry the rock into the endzone, but Greene did and Saints took a early 7-0 lead on a 5 yard run.

    Saints would hold the Lions and Bush would go back to work. This time Bush would get his own td from 4 yards out. 14-0 Saints.

    Lions wouldn't quit though and would battle it out all game long. The Reggie Bush show quickly turned into the Reggie Bush/Java Best show. Best would get the lions on the board with a 5 yard run of his own.

    Lions would harass Brees all day, either sacking him or forcing a bad throw and even picking him off twice. Lions would use best to tied the game on a 15 yard run.

    Reggie would come right back, this time scoring form 29 yard out to take a 21-14 lead.

    Lions would fire right back, this time hitting Best on a perfect screen for a 36 yard td play to tie the game at 21 each.

    Lions would get the ball back with just over 1 min remaining in the half. Garrard would be picked off by Jordan and returned for the pick six 24 yards for the 28-21 lead.

    Brees would get another shot before half after another turnover. Brees would go to work but make a horrible 3rd down decision on the goalline and Ash would have a 102 yard pick six td to tie the game at half at 28 each.

    3rd quarter was all defense on both sides. Lions would take the lead late in the quarter with a 18 yard fg for a 30-28 lead.

    4th quarter is where things got really good. Brees would hit henderson on a 9 yard td play on a quick strike offensive series to take a 35-31 lead.

    Hartley would tack on a 45 yard fg with 3:22 left in the game to extend the lead to 38-31.

    Lions would put together a very good drive and threaten to score to go for the tie, but Jordan would read a play and pick the route to seal the game for the Who Dat Nation.

    RB Reggie Bush

    Bush rushed 18 times for 135 and 2 tds. One of his best days as a Saint in the OMFL. If Brees can keep it out of the other teams hands, and Bush can run the rock like this every week, Saints would be tough to contend with.

    Saints Keep Pace In NFCS - Take Our Rival Panthers
    New Orlenas, LA - Savage Mason Reporting

    [​IMG]
    The Saints are on a roll, for the first time since their small run to the playoffs last season. A bad start has finally turned into a team who has fought it's way out of the cellar, and the NFCS has helped out by coming back to the pack. Falcons have lost 5 straight and the Saints and Bucs lok to have taken control of this division. In come the Panthers, who have had a very down season since winning the NFCS from the Saints last year.

    Panthers would receive the ball and being their drive, a very good drive. Saints would hold them on the 3 yard line after some great defensive plays. Suisham would nail a 25 yarder for a 3-0 lead.

    After a Bush fumble, which would be a problem today, Panthers Williams would take it 37 yards for the long td run. 10-0 Panthers, who were firmly in control.

    Saints would be forced to get a good drive going, a drive that was kept alive by Brees. On a long 3rd down Brees would run for a 20 yard gain to pick up the first down. 2 plays later Brees would run it in from 11 yard for his first running td of the year. 10-7 Panthers.

    Saints would get the ball back and on a 3rd down Brees would see single coverage with no S help. After audibling Lawrence on a fly, Brees throws a beautiful pass to a laid out Lawrence for a 43 yard td pass/catch. 14-10 Saints.

    Saints would force the Panthers to punt with just seconds left in the half, yet bush AGAIN would fumble in the endzone for the Panther td. 17-14 Saints.

    Brees would try to get something going and make his one mistake on the day, Panthers would make it count with a 39 yard fg as time expired, a 10 point shift in 16 seconds to give the Panthers all the mo'. 20-14 Panthers.

    2nd half kickoff would be taking in by Brown of the Saints, after 2 nice cuts and open field, he would take it back 94 yard for the td and get the Saints right back into the game. 21-20 Saints.

    Bush later in the 3rd quarter would take it in from 1 yard out to extend the lead to 28-20 Saints, and give them some breathing room.

    Saints and Panthers would go back and forth, with Vilma of the Saints making some super plays with double digit tackles, a sack and a int.

    Bush would take a handoff early in the 4th quarter and scamper 80 yards to put the game out of the way - 35-20.

    RB Reggie Bush

    Bush rushed 15 times for 155 yards and 2 tds. His long 80 yard td run early in the 4th put the game away. Bush has played very good the last two weeks and looks to help keep the saints playoff hopes alive with Brees having a off season.

    Saints Rip NFCS from Bucs - Win 6th Straight
    New Orlenas, LA - Savage Mason Reporting
    [​IMG]
    NO and TB both came into week 11 at 6-4 and battling it out for the NFCS lead. Both teams battled it out down in Tampa, which watched the Bucs and Saints have a defensive battle which watched the Bucs win on a last second fg. Saints had won 5 in a row and were looking to take back what was theirs in the lead for the NFCS.

    Saints would win toss and elect to defer. Bucs would get the ball and 3 and out. Actually both teams would take some punts before someone got on the board. Bucs were using a lot of motion to start on offense and a lot of blitzing on d, but then swapped attacks later in the game and changed as the game went on. Saints would get on the board with a 44 yard fg from Hartley, 3-0 Saints.

    Bucs would come right back and get it down close, saints D would come up with 3 huge stops and force a 23 yard Barth fg. 3-3 tie with 3 mins to go in the 2nd half.

    Saints would get a very nice drive going with some huge 3rd downs and finally punch it in with a 10 yard rumble from FB Evans for the 10-3 lead going into half time.

    Saints would get the ball half way through the 3rd quarter and begin to drive the ball to extend the lead. Bush would take it in from 17 yards out for his biggest run of the day. 17-3 Saints.

    The 4th quarter would get super crazy. Saints were looking to put the game away and the Bucs were looking to climb back into it. Hartley would take on a 23 yard and a 20 yard fg with some very nice drives, but just weren't able to connect for a td. Saints would have a 23-3 lead with under 6 mins to go in the game.

    Bucs would score with 3:32 left to go on a 2 yard pass from Freeman to Winslow to tighten the game, but time was running out quickly. Saints would burn some clock on their next drive but were forced to punt on some great Dline play from Shiftee.

    Saints would pick up 2 back to back sacks to bring up a 4th and 23 with less than 1 min to go in the game. Saints would come out in a prevent D and Freeman would hit Benn on a 51 yard unbelievable pass play for the td to make it 23-17 Saints.

    Saints would recover the onside and kill the clock for their 6th straight W and the NFCS lead.

    SS M. Jenkins
    Jenkins would come up with 2 huge INTs and the Saints defense as a whole played amazing today. 23 yards rushing for the Bucs top rusher and some great plays on the passing defense also. Saints need the D to step up, Bush is playing good, and now we just need Brees to step it up.
