Brees Wins ‘GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week’

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/30/2011 – 6:55 pm

New Orleans Saints quarterback DREW BREES’ orchestration of three second-half TDs is the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK for games played on September 25 – 26, the NFL announced today. The GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance. 

After throwing two interceptions earlier in the game that helped put his team in a 26-17 fourth-quarter hole, Brees threw three second-half touchdowns – two in the final quarter — to send New Orleans surging past the Houston Texans for a dramatic 40-33 comeback victory.

Brees’ performance was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc.  The other two moments were Detroit Lions quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD’s two second-half touchdown tosses to wide receiver CALVIN JOHNSON in the Lions’ comeback from a 20-0 halftime deficit and Buffalo Bills quarterback RYAN FITZPATRICK engineering of four second-half scoring drives to help the Bills beat the New England Patriots for the first time in 16 chances.

After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year, from among the 17 weekly winners.  Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/gmc throughout the month of January.

Saints’ O-Line Listed at No. 3 in New York Life Protection Index

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/28/2011 – 3:01 pm

The New Orleans Saints offensive line came in at No. 3 with an 85.7 score in the New York Life Protection Index week three rankings.

The Patriots came in at No. 1 on the list with a 91.9 score followed by the Bills with a 90.6 mark.

The Protection Index is the authoritative measure of a team’s aptitude in pass protection. In today’s football, the ‘golden age’ of passing, a pro football team’s ability to protect the quarterback is a key attribute to winning games.

Check out the full rankings here.

About the New York Life Protection Index

The New York Life Protection Index was created by sports information leader STATS to provide a composite gauge for this undervalued component of the game. While the New York Life Protection Index is calculated using a proprietary formula, the fundamentals are comprised of the length of a team’s pass attempts combined with penalties by offensive linemen, sacks allowed and quarterback hurries and knockdowns. The New York Life Protection Index is updated weekly throughout the regular season.

Gleason’s Thoughts on Texans Game

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/27/2011 – 2:10 pm

Former Saints Safety Steve Gleason served as honorary captain for the Saints-Texans game on Sunday.  He led the pregame chant.

Gleason has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a rare terminal disease that damages the nerves that control voluntary muscle movement.

“I’m fortunate because I am loved by my wife and family; boys like Will Smith and Drew Brees are powerful support, and the 75,000 in the crowd are on my team,” – said Gleason.

Soundbites From Graham’s WWL Radio Interview

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/27/2011 – 12:21 am

TE Jimmy Graham talked with Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia of WWL Radio Monday night.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

On his strong start to the season:

“In the offseason and through training camp one of the things I wanted to do was make sure I started (the season) off strong. Start off with the right foot forward. I definitely feel I have done that but there is still so much for me out there that I can do.”

On how TE David Thomas has helped him:

“He always works with me, especially in the run game. He is just teaching me things about footwork and pad level. That’s one of the big things Dave Thomas has done for me, especially in this offseason. Going back to when Drew (Brees) had the offseason workouts. Dave was just meticulously working with me. Dave has been a huge part in helping me develop.”

On the importance of run blocking:

“For me, (run blocking) is equally as important as catching. If you are catching the ball or run blocking, you have to protect the ball and protect the ball carrier. For me, that was my biggest focus this offseason was to get stronger and break down my technique. That is what it comes down to.

“This offseason, I got up to 265-270 pounds. Now, I am able to hold my own more and be more aggressive without worrying about the initial shock. I know that the more I block and better I block it will just help me to get open. I don’t want to be the guy who is just in there on third down or redzone. I want to be a guy who plays the entire game.”

Full audio of the interview will be posted Tuesday.
