With the pressure Brees has been under when he goes to a standard dropback, why haven't the Saints utilized a 3 step drop on occasion? I'll hang up and listen..........
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Worse performance of season thus far - plawmac on 12/15/13 at 4:05 pm|
Against Seattle, you got the impression that they were trying, but just had an off game. This just looks like a team that has no interest in being here today. Sad, pathetic excuse for a team that s allegedly contending for a playoff bye. Next week's game against Car will be winner take all at this p...

Marti's just opened in the old Peristyle location; Dumaine and N Rampart. Marti's was actually the predecessor restaurant, and was considered nouvelle cuisine back in the 70's. New owner also runs Gautreau's. Should be good.

| Food and Drink Board|| Marisa's in the Bywater - plawmac on 8/30/13 at 6:16 am|
Went last night. Place is fantastic - good atmosphere, great food, nice wine list and craft cocktails. We split an order of the goat ricotta bruschetta as an appetizer. One order is more than enough for 2 people. Ricotta is whipped so its not a dense consistency. I had the duck with papardelle, whil...

Bought a house yesterday. To celebrate, had lunch at Maurepas. Simply great. Had grilled amberjack with watermelon, grilled halloumi and mint. Fiance had grilled shrimp with a side of grits. She liked hers - didn't get a chance to taste out of fear that she would stab me with her fork. Had a ...
