Saints pummel sorry Salford, Castleford beat Hull
Come to think of it, we’re actually a little shocked the band’s not called “The United Nations.” Talk about “world music,” ya know? (Except not, because their sincere radio rock vibe couldn’t be further from the aforementioned genre.) After joining forces in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil, y’all) in 2009, Saints Of Valory REALLY took off after relocating to Austin, Texas, where they played multiple SXSW festivals and independently released their debut EP, The Bright Lights. Now, the boys are prepping a brand-new EP on F-Stop/Atlantic Records called Possibilities, and have just unleashed a ridiculously anthemic, radio-friendly lyric video, “Neon Eyes.” Like, seriously, get out your lighters. Watch Saints Of Valory’s “Neon Eyes” lyric video after the jump. Produced by Joe Chicarelli, “Neon Eyes” kicks off with echoing modern-rock guitar reminiscent of U2 and/or Kings Of Leon , before evolving into a VERY Coldplay -ish “whoa-oh-oh” drum-fueled breakdown. As for the track’s splendid lyric video, the words float down across the screen at odd angles in front of stormy, mountainous setting. Accompanying the tundra-ish backdrop is a makeshift collection of odds and ends: a drum set, some strung-up lights, a few chairs, an amp, etc. Totally the perfect setting for an impromptu summer show, except that, well, this doesn’t look very summery.
It was kind of getting back to our basics with Sean [Payton] coming back. So it was really reestablishing the culture with a lot of the new guys we got; with rookies, some of the free agent guys as well as some of the new coaching staff we have. [Payton] doesn’t know probably about 60 percent of the team because every year you add about 15 players, so really that’s about two years of players that he had no idea who they were. “So it’s kind of getting back to the culture he wanted to establish and we got after it pretty good in the weight program. We changed some things around, we had about 100 percent attendance, everybody was really involved; the OTAs and minicamps were very, very competitive. We have a lot of guys competing for spots and he made sure he rotated people so nobody felt good; there are no starters, you can’t lose a job or gain a job. He kept it loose and kept guys motivated.” On how different things look defensively for the Saints after OTAs and minicamp compared to last season: “They look different from a cultural standpoint.
Saints Row IV
Holdsworth kicked his second goal to make it 16-6. However, the battling Tigers turned the game on its head with three tries in six minutes to storm into a 24-16 lead. First Chase put centre Kirk Dixon through a gap and took a return pass to touch down, while prop Craig Huby produced a neat pass out of the tackle to get hooker Daryl Clark over. Replacement prop then Jonathan Walker romped over for his side’s fourth try. Dixon’s fourth conversion put the Tigers into an eight-point lead but it was halved on 57 minutes when Heremaia went over for his second try.
Saints think they found a sleeper in Jason Smith
So everything I went through has made me who I am as a person. click As far as the football stuff, its still a day-to-day deal. As far as my life, its a day-to-day deal. So I desire to know Gods heart. Thats what my focus is. The Rams didnt need him to save the souls of the world, they just needed him to block. The Saints are offering him another chance to do just that. 22 Responses to Saints think they found a sleeper in JasonSmith mrpresident2 says: Jun 19, 2013 9:40 AM Im sure hes suffering with the millions hes made in a few year pkrlvr says: Jun 19, 2013 10:02 AM While I dont believe in Christ or religion, I find it hilarious that this turd actually compares his struggles in football to the crucifiction. tsizzlesucks says: Jun 19, 2013 10:08 AM Hell be a full time bible thumper in a matter of weeks! thedoubleentandres says: Jun 19, 2013 10:23 AM suffer just like christ didwhen he tried to shake his status as a draft bust pjrhc says: Jun 19, 2013 10:28 AM As a Christian, I would encourage young (in his faith) Jason to live his faith more than talk it to reporters who are mostly godless, and rarely understand anyway.
Saints told to splash cash on five more top signings (From Daily Echo)
Lewis does excel in defending the pass, but one thing he must work on is hauling in interceptions. During his four-year NFL career, Lewis has only made one interception, so hopefully he improves upon that during his stint with the Saints. Lewis will be a key player for the Saints defense in 2013 and will need to do all he can to improve the Saints historically terrible defense. Last season, the Saints gave up 7,042 yards of offense, the most in NFL history, so it is no surprise that Lewis was the Saints top acquisition. The Saints secondary should be more improved overall as the team also brought in safety Kenny Vaccaro with the 15th pick of the 2013 NFL Draft . In his first season with the Saints, I think Lewis will have a great season and could lead the league again in passes defended.
New Orleans Saints Training Camp Profile: Keenan Lewis
Not sure yet. I will buy both on day 1! I’ll wait to get next-gen consoles. I like what I have now. I’m not a console gamer. PC all the way! Hey! The Wii U is enough for me N. America: Aug.
Saints D last year was ‘missing the teeth it usually has,’ says Malcolm Jenkins
I would say they need two more top drawer centre halves because ideally youd want four of them to pick from. We havent seen the new signing (Lovren) yet and we havent seen what (Vegard) Forren can do either. Jos Hooiveld and Jose Fonte are ok Premier League players, no more. And the jury is still out on Maya Yoshida because of his positioning. He likes to play behind the line and if other clubs capitalise on that it could be a massive problem for us. He wasnt a positive for me. Lambert also needs someone to share the goals burden, says Watson.
Saints coach hopes Milne back in a month
Milne trained with teammates on Friday despite being given indefinite leave from playing after he was charged this week with four counts of rape relating to an alleged incident in 2004. Watters says he backs the decision to allow Milne time away from playing, denying the 33-year-old has been stood down. Instead, he says the decision is the Saints showing a duty of care to the player. Stephen will return to play. Were very hopeful that within three to four weeks he will be available to come back and do what he loves doing, Watters said on Friday. At the same time, theres a duty of care and responsibility to Milney.
