First-year Saints coach Dennis Allen might have liked to keep his focus on defense, an area he built into a strength of the club as a coordinator the past six-plus seasons.

But while the unit he primarily oversees continues to perform well, costly breakdowns on offense and special teams are demanding more attention.

“We’ve got a lot of areas that we’ve got to improve on,” Allen said Monday after spending part of an overnight flight to England reviewing video of a 22-14 loss at Carolina last Sunday.

“We’ve got to work hard to get those things corrected and fixed before we get to Sunday.”

Even in their lone win in Atlanta in Week 1, the Saints needed a 17-point fourth quarter to pull off the largest fourth-quarter comeback victory in franchise history.

For most of the 11 other quarters they have played this season, the Saints have struggled to score — done in by a combination of drive-stalling penalties, turnovers and even missed field goals.

Through three games, the Saints (1-2) have scored 10 total first-quarter points, none in the second quarter of any game and three third-quarter points. They’ve fumbled eight times, losing four. And quarterback Jameis Winston has thrown five interceptions — one more than his touchdown pass total of four. ...

Buccaneers Tom Brady Receives Warning from the NFL Regarding Sideline Conduct

It's a copycat league, and that's what the NFL is afraid of as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback continues his crusade against tablets.

By David Harrison

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost at home against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 of the NFL season.

It was their first loss, coming off the heels of two-straight wins against the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints respectively.

But if you looked at the sideline footage alone, you'd likely think the one loss came at the hands of the Saints.

That's because Brady was seen taking a lot of his frustrations in New Orleans out on those wicked tablets the NFL has turned to in lieu of printed photos for players to look at during the course of the game.

“I’ve had a pretty bad record against that tablet, unfortunately,” Brady said while speaking with Jim Gray on the Monday following the Bucs win over the Saints. “I think I forgot the password and I couldn’t log in, so those things can be frustrating. Unfortunately, the tablet just happens to get in the way, and obviously that’s the reason things weren’t going great [against the Saints], so I had to take it out on the poor meaningless tablet.”

While Brady had a more humorous look at his treatment of tablets, the NFL apparently doesn't see it as a laughing matter. ...

Saints current quarterback questions reminicent of 2022

Twenty years later, the comparisons are obvious.

I hear it daily on radio shows on NASH ICON 106.1 FM, in e-mails, via social media, through texts and as a guest on other shows in other markets.

The current situation surrounding the New Orleans Saints and their quarterbacks is similar to what we saw in 2002.

During that season, the Saints were cruising toward a playoff appearance at 9-4 through 13 games. That’s when the roof caved in as New Orleans lost its final three games to finish 9-7 and out of the postseason.

The issue for head coach Jim Haslett was whether to play an injured...

Numbers breakdown: Saints converting only a third of their third-down attempts in 2022

The New Orleans Saints offense has converted 13 of 39 third-down attempts through three games. That cranks out to a 33.3% conversion rate, and that percentage ranks 24th in the 32-team league.

The Buffalo Bills’ 61% tops the chart, while the Houston Texans’ 25% is at the bottom.

The Saints are 1-2. They converted four of 13 third-down attempts in both of the first two games — a win over then Atlanta Falcons in Week 1 and a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. Last Sunday, the Saints converted five of 13 third-down attempts in a loss against the Carolina Panthers.

Sunday night’s game between the Chiefs and Buccaneers was originally scheduled for Tampa. It continues to be scheduled for Tampa, despite the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian.

“We are not discussing any potential sites,” a league spokesperson told Rob Maaddi of the Associated Press. “We continue to monitor the storm and are in constant communication with the clubs and local authorities. Decision could be made as late as Friday.”

It’s fine to not make a decision until Friday, but they are surely at least considering alternative locations. Unless, of course, they’ve already made the...

The NFL’s unpredictability is part of what makes it so exciting. And as the league enters Week 4, this much is certain: Much more thrilling uncertainty lies ahead.

This week, the MIAMI DOLPHINS can improve to 4-0 for the first time since 1995, when Pro Football Hall of Famers DON SHULA and DAN MARINO held the reins. The PHILADELPHIA EAGLES could advance to 4-0 for the first time since 2004, when they earned a Super Bowl berth.

What else could happen? Stay tuned because the NFL is as unpredictable as the bounce of an oblong football.

Tampa Bay is supposed to host Kansas City on Sunday at 7:20 p.m., but the Buccaneers evacuated to Miami on Tuesday due to Hurricane Ian's current path through the Gulf of Mexico toward Florida coast. They'll...

2 takeaways as Saints fall to Panthers

The Saints offense has been stagnant all year, and Jameis has already thrown more interceptions through three games than he did in seven last season. Either he still isn’t fully healthy yet or he has lost confidence and can’t get on the same page with these receivers. Some change needs to be made, either at the quarterback position or with the overall scheme of the offense. Andy Dalton looked as good as you can during the preseason, and is far better than any backup the Saints trotted out last season, he at least deserves a shot to compete for the starting job right now.

Week 3’s New Orleans Saints game wasn’t exactly an easy watch. They tripped themselves up often against the Carolina Panthers and struggled to move the ball when it mattered on offense, creating an extremely thin margin for error on defense.

Still, it’s important to take a look at things afterwards and see who played the most impactful football, both for good and for bad. To that end, here are the highest and lowest player grades from Pro Football Focus after Week 3’s loss:

Only 5 players with 100 yards rushing against Saints since late 2017, but 2 already in '22

Since Nov. 19, 2017, the New Orleans Saints defense has only allowed five players to rush for more than 100 yards.

Two of those rushers have slipped through this year alone, and the regular season is only three weeks in. The Saints are 1-2 as they head to London for a Week 4 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings (2-1) on Sunday.

There was a record 55-game stretch, including postseason play, where the Saints limited all rushers to less than 100 yards. That November game, running back Samaje Perine rushed for 117 yards. He was with the Washington Commanders at the time; he’s now with the...

Saints tied for third in NFL waiver wire claim priority

There’s a small, thin, miniscule silver lining for the New Orleans Saints’ ugly 1-2 start. ESPN’s Field Yates shared the updated NFL waiver wire priority on Tuesday, which reflects team records after Week 3 and will be revised accordingly in the weeks ahead. And the Saints are locked in a tie for third after losing two of their first three games.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that they’re tied with seven other teams, including conference rivals like the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, and yeah, the Atlanta Falcons. If the Saints file a waiver claim for the same player as one...

UFO spotted in New Orleans: Unrecognizable Failing Offense

It was expected for there to be a few bumps in the road with a revamped offense and a new head coach in New Orleans, but no one could’ve predicted that it would be this bad. After three weeks of football, the Saints have failed to find any sort of identity on the offensive side of the ball. From the questionable play calling of offensive coordinator Pete Carmicheal, the dangerous throws QB Jameis Winston attempts to complete, and the lack of chemistry this offense has displayed as a whole, the New Orleans Saints have turned into what I’m calling a UFO: Unrecognizable Failing Offense.

On the loss, generally:

“Disappointing outcome. We talked about the ball being the most important thing, Snd we did not play well in the first half. The turnover was a big play in the game. Obviously, the two missed field goals were big plays in the game. That is 13 points. We get back into the game and give up the explosive pass, missed tackle and the game was kind of out of hand at that point in time. Look, our guys fought. Our guys competed. We had some guys go down, some guys stepped up. But we’re going to have to regroup and we are going to have to play better.”
