Green Bay, Wis. – Coach Dennis Allen said it was one that his team let slip away, and not a single member of the New Orleans Saints organization would cast a dissenting vote.

The Saints (2-1) couldn't cash out a 17-0, fourth-quarter lead against the Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field, and the 18-17 loss left a sting that permeated the locker room.
There were enough breakdowns across the board to prevent victory.

OFFENSE: Losing quarterback Derek Carr was a monumental blow to the team and offense. New Orleans punted four consecutive possessions after Carr departed with a shoulder injury he sustained in the third quarter, and on the team's final possession, kicker Blake Grupe pushed right the potential game-winning field goal with 70 seconds left. Carr (13 of 18, 103 yards and a touchdown) was solid enough while he was on the field, but the amount of punishment he has taken – sacked three times Sunday, and 11 total times this season – caught up against the Packers. The protection issues that have been glaring have to be fixed. All things considered, Jameis Winston (10 of 16 for 101 yards) was fine in relief, and put the team in position to win the game. But there seemed to be a noticeable dip in emotion with Carr's injury. The running game (22 carries for 77 yards) provided some balance, but the Saints again failed to score a touchdown on one red zone opportunity, and it showed up on the scoreboard. ...

Reports: Saints believe Derek Carr avoided season-ending injury

Here’s a little more good news on Derek Carr. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill report that the New Orleans Saints believe Carr avoided a serious injury in Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers, and the quarterback is expected to return to action this season.

Now, how long that could be is yet to be determined. But Carr’s year is far from over, and that’s what is important. If the defense can continue its streak of dominance and Alvin Kamara’s return can reignite the offense, maybe he can return to a team that still has a winning record once his shoulder...

4 quarterbacks the Saints could sign with Derek Carr on the mend

With Derek Carr injured and Jake Haener still suspended, the New Orleans Saints could use another quarterback to round out the depth chart. Let’s not play dumb: Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are going to stay on top and do their best to lead this team while Carr is on the mend. They aren’t going to find a new starter.

But it’s worth adding another passer to the practice squad to at least see the team through their next three games until Haener is reinstated, and maybe longer until Carr is cleared to return (if he’ll even be sidelined that long; right now, we just don’t know).

Depth is...

Report: Derek Carr suffered AC joint sprain, return to be determined

This is a relief. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the New Orleans Saints believe starting quarterback Derek Carr sprained his right AC joint in Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers, which would be a significantly less-severe injury than previously feared.

So how long would it keep him out of action? Rapoport adds that his return “will be determined by the swelling and how he gains mobility” so we’re looking at a matter of weeks, not months, here. The Johns Hopkins University and Hospital says that healing can take two to four weeks, depending on the severity, and if this is a...

Some of the New Orleans Saints’ players really stood out against the Green Bay Packers for a positive reason. On the other hand, some other players stood out for a less-than-great reason. After losing a 17-0 lead in the second half, there are some players who are partially responsible for this, and we would like to see them improve.

Here’s a quick look at the Week 3 Studs and Duds before we shift gears and look at the Saints’ next matchup:

Here’s some small good news: Derek Carr has been released from a Green Bay hospital and joined his New Orleans Saints teammates for their flight home after Sunday’s loss to the Packers, per’s Luke Johnson.

Carr went down with an injured shoulder midway through the game at Lambeau Field and was initially evaluated at the stadium’s X-ray room before being taken to a local hospital for further testing. Hopefully this is a positive sign for his status, but we’ll have to wait and see.

If nothing else it’s good to see he’s been cleared to travel home to New Orleans where he can focus...

Alontae Taylor had his best day as a member of the New Orleans Saints on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers in their Week 3 matchup, though he was ultimately just a rare bright spot in the tough road loss.

Taylor has been solid since debut last season after being drafted in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. After flashes here and there, he put together a complete performance to earn Player of the Game recognition.

Against the Packers on Sunday, Taylor had an absurd five passes defensed to go along with a sack and five tackles (two tackles for loss of...
