The New Orleans Saints have entered the ‘dead zone’ of the NFL offseason. It’s that time after mandatory minicamp ends, but before training camp begins. At this point in the offseason, news is nearly nonexistent.

Likewise, television fans are about to hit a ‘dead zone’ with HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones reaching its season six finale entitled “The Winds of Winter”. If you haven’t been watching the series, it is time to get started. There may be no better drama on television at the moment.

Game of Thrones is a HBO series that began as a series of books by renowned fantasy author George R.R. Martin. The entire world is fabricated with vast continents and new kingdoms with new languages.

The main action takes place on a continent by the name of Westeros where families are fighting to take control of the ‘iron throne’ that resides in the capital of the seven kingdoms, King’s Landing.

The series is bursting with lovable characters who die the moment you start empathizing with them as well as a group of despised psychopaths that make life in the seven kingdoms a living hell.

In many ways Game of Thrones is like watching a Saints game. Your favorite people getting crushed in inexplicable ways, only to find redemption against the most hated group of all, the Atlanta Falcons.

Both entities have been known to cause tears of joy and sadness. Both Saints games and episodes from Game of Thrones can induce a major cardiac event and as much as anyone would like to say they know the impending outcome, we are all clueless on how we will be treated on Sundays.

With that, it is time to have a little fun and attempt to picture beloved Saints players as their equals in the land of Westeros and beyond. From the Starks in Winterfell to the mother of dragons across the narrow sea, where do the 2016 New Orleans Saints find kinship?

If you need to catch up on your Game of Thrones you can always click on over to Winter is Coming and receive a full education in Game of Thrones action. Without further ado, welcome to A Song of Stand Up and Get Crunk.

Full Disclosure: Spoilers ahead.
