Saints Name Surprising, Yet Deserving MVPs

Today, at the Touchdown Club's "Meet the Saints" luncheon in Downtown New Orleans' Sheraton Hotel, the team announced its three Most Valuable Players from the 2015 season. One from the offense, the defense and the special teams. And while all three selections were highly deserving, they could also be considered as mild surprises to some...however, I think these were the best choices.

Jake Hanson Quiet But Effective

Oregon has been picked in many pre-season polls to finish third in the Pac-12 North this season, but when you talk to the Oregon players, you get the feeling they believe the Ducks will do much better that.

'I'm Feeling a Lot More Comfortable'

The New Orleans Saints have had some solid centers over the years, but the position which always seemed to be a strength for the team, had become a glaring weakness in recent years.

Brees Loves His O-Line's Progress

Some things you just can't hide. Last year, listening to Drew Brees in his post game press conferences, it was impossible for the future Hall of Famer to hide his frustration. Brees always seems to have a positive outlook, even in the face of adversity. But the way he gushed about the progress of the Saints offensive line, it was hard to mask his obvious enthusiasm for the group. Here is another great Brees soundbite talking about the entire o-line as a group, and individually as well.
