Saints GM: Collapse vs Packers shows need for better 'killer instinct' late in games

The New Orleans Saints found themselves on the wrong side of a painful, double-digit 4th quarter comeback for the second time in less than 10 months. So what went wrong?

GM Mickey Loomis joined Voice of the Saints Mike Hoss on WWL Radio this week and pointed to the culprit.

"We’ve got to as a group, we’ve got to develop a little bit better of a killer instinct," Loomis said. "When we have somebody down, not letting our foot off the gas, not giving them opportunities to get back into the games."

The Saints led by 17 points at halftime and, despite failing to muster any points in the second half, retained that lead to the 11 minute mark in the fourth quarter. That's where it all went wrong, with the Packers kicking a field goal, driving for a touchdown and 2-point conversion, then a go-ahead score on three consecutive possession. The Saints, led by Jameis Winston after Derek Carr went down with an injury, drove into field goal range for a go-ahead opportunity, but the 46-yard attempt sailed wide. ...

NFL Picks Week 4: Shouldering the Blame

  • News source: Wallace Delery
  • Replies: 0
  • Views: 4
The New Orleans Saints enter Week 4 with a 2-1 record as they head home. Not a bad record by any means, but a very disappointing one, considering the team was less than a quarter away from a 3-0 record and a chance to really break their division wide open this week. Unfortunately, an injury to quarterback Derek Carr was followed by a fourth quarter collapse that won't be forgotten this season.

There is a lot of blame to go around for last week’s loss, and all three facets of the team have to shoulder that blame. The unit that has consistently been to blame this season has been the...

We hear a lot from New Orleans Saints fans, players, and coaches about the team’s strong homefield advantage — but it’s awful cathartic to hear it from the opposing sideline. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is set to make his latest trip to the Caesars Superdome on Sunday, and he shared a unique perspective on the matchup during his Wednesday media availability session after practice.

“It’s always a fun time when we get to play the Saints. When you go into that stadium, you know what you’re getting into,” Godwin began. “Those fans, they have that stadium rocking. There’s...

The NFL's top-3 leaders in passes defensed all play for the Saints

The NFL’s top-three leaders in passes defensed all play for the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Dennis Allen boasts a deep secondary, having invested a lot of time in drafting and developing talent behind Marshon Lattimore. They’re going into Week 4 with more pass breakups than anyone.

Here’s how the top-five shakes out in passes defensed:

It’s a big step up from last season when Taylor led the Saints with 11 pass breakups (ranking 24th around the league). Tyrann Mathieu had the second-most passes defensed (8) and Paulson Adebo was third (7). A big part of their success this year has been...

Our defense vs. their offense: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought us some of the most intriguing matchups in the past few seasons. From Tom Brady smashing tablets to Mike Evans getting ejected, we’ve seen it all through the past few years.

However, this year's matchup is going to look much different than in years past. Tom Brady is no longer steering the Bucs ship, and with Baker Mayfield at the helm, this offense should regress a lot, right?

Well, that hasn’t necessarily been the case thus far. Outside of their game against the Eagles, their offense has looked relatively good through three...

Saints opened up more salary cap space by releasing Tre'Quan Smith

Tre’Quan Smith was released by the New Orleans Saints this week and immediately booked a flight to visit Sean Payton’s Denver Broncos, but what does his departure mean for the team’s salary cap outlook? The Saints were under the spending limit by about $2.67 million prior to releasing Smith from injured reserve.

Now, the experts at Over The Cap estimate the Saints are under the cap by $4.1 million. That isn’t much (it currently ranks eighth-lowest around the league), but it does give them a little wiggle room ahead of the Oct. 31 trade deadline.

They wouldn’t be able to take on the full...
