In New Orleans, it's great to have a recent legendary player to serve as an analyst and broadcaster. The fans trust their opinions and perspective on the game of football. Today, the media heard from the New Orleans Saints leading running back in their franchise's history, Deuce McAllister, on his thoughts about the team and players' preparation for 2020. But, I want to focus on what he said about the team's running backs.

Deuce on how the team handled the running back rotation, especially with Latavius Murray.

"I want to see more[of RB Latavius Murray]. I mean, I think that's the biggest thing. When he got his opportunity, he was able to excel. He was able to really go out and produce, and you just want to see more of it. I think that was probably the biggest thing that you go back and look at this overall season.

The novel coronavirus pandemic has hit the 2020 NFL schedule hard, canceling team workouts over the summer as well as this year’s Hall of Fame Game. These changes have also impacted the New Orleans Saints, who will be unable to hold joint practice sessions with their preseason opponents — a move they’ve favored in recent years, using the opportunity to work against other NFL talents after weeks of grueling training camp practices.

However, the latest update has the Saints seeing even less action against other teams. Pro Football Talk and ESPN reported that the NFL plans to cancel Weeks 1 and 4 of its preseason series, limiting all teams to just two preseason games.

NFL players raise concerns about safety of their workplace

Some NFL players are raising concerns about playing football amid the coronavirus pandemic while others are ignoring advice of medical experts by working out with teammates.

JC Tretter, a center on the Cleveland Browns and president of the NFL Players Association, wrote an open letter to players Tuesday, saying they have to fight for “necessary COVID-19 protections.”

New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins said last week that “football is a nonessential business and so we don’t need to do it.”

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward has asthma, so he wants to “take every precaution” if he plays.

“We are not invincible, and as recent reports have shown, we certainly aren’t immune to this virus,” Tretter wrote in his letter. “Underlying conditions like high BMI, asthma and sleep apnea are all associated with a higher risk of developing severe symptoms and complications when infected with COVID-19. Those conditions are widespread across the league. NFL players are humans — some with immuno-compromised family members or live-in elderly parents. Trust me: we want to play football. But as a union, our most important job is keep our players safe and alive. The NFLPA will fight for our most at-risk players...

I’ve discussed some of the negative effects this virus might have on both the season ticket holders and coaching staffs, but I haven’t yet touched on the most important population within the NFL: the players themselves.

The NFLPA recently sent out a memo to all player agents directing them to have conversations with their clients about the risks inherent with Covid-19. Portions of the memo were released to ESPN.

Following a rushed reopening of the economy, many states are reporting soaring new case numbers. Arizona, Texas, and Florida, which are home to six NFL franchises, are reporting...

Jails present a heightened risk of infection during the ongoing pandemic. Plenty of Americans who have yet to be convicted but who can’t afford bail remain stuck in jail pending the resolution of their charges.

Trying to catch Deuce McAllister the broadcaster, is probably a little easier than it was to catch Deuce McAllister the football player.

Back then it was about the most efficient and effective way to get from Point A to Point B, and he was really good at that. But these days it’s more about taking the winding road, even if it’s not necessarily by design.

McAllister tries to stay in shape in his post-playing career by playing golf. He helps his own cause.

“When I go and play, I normally hit about 13,000 to 15,000 steps,” McAllister said. “And I don’t walk, I use a cart. So that tells you...

NFL to cut preseason in half; Saints to lose out on games vs. Rams and Dolphins

  • News source: BY KYLE WHITFIELD | Staff writer

The NFL will shorten the 2020 preseason, cutting the number of games for most teams from four to two, according to an ESPN report.

The move is the biggest move by the NFL to date in response to coronavirus. ESPN's report says the decision was made to give players more time to round into football shape before game action.

For the New Orleans Saints, that means the team's two preseason games will be at Pittsburgh on Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. and at home against Houston on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m.

Saints fantasy position groups: Wide Receivers

  • News source: Hayden Reel
  • Replies: 0
The New Orleans Saints added much needed depth at the wide receiver position in the form of free agent Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders joins the best WR in the league in Michael Thomas, as well as Tre’Quan Smith andspeedster Deonte Harris as the core group of Saints receivers. So here’s how we evaluate each receiver prior to entering the 2020 fantasy season.

Michael Thomas is the best receiver in the NFL and should be the first WR off the board in every fantasy league this season.

Position Ranking: WR1

ADP: 3-5

Jonathan Vilma effectively had 24 hours to prepare for what must have amounted to one of the strangest job interviews of his life.

Fox reached out to the Miami resident this February when its representatives were in town for the Super Bowl. The network wanted Vilma as an in-game analyst for its NFL broadcasts, and Vilma reciprocated the interest.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which resulted in a couple things: Vilma’s interview — which would require him perform a mock live game broadcast — was not only pushed back, but Vilma would also have to conduct it virtually by video...

How Saints rank in quarterback play in Super Bowl era

  • News source: KSkiver35

It’s well-established by now that the New Orleans Saints don’t have the best franchise history. It took over 40 years to win a Super Bowl, and a lot of suffering and mediocrity led up to that zenith. That’s due in no small part to some brutal quarterback play over the franchise’s history.

According to rankings from ESPN’s Doug Clawson, however, the Saints’ quarterback history in the Super Bowl era isn’t all that bad. As it turns out, having one of the best quarterbacks ever for over a decade in Drew Brees can really boost your standing, even with a history riddled with poor play.

Remember the days when the biggest concern around the Saints was “Who is going to be the third running back?” Good ole 2019.

The bad news is that this is 2020. The good news is that training camp is right around the corner. Should all go as planned, the Saints expect to hit the team facilities in July to get started with their off-season programs. Up until then, relegated to computer screens from home, the Saints have not been able to address logjams and competition at certain positions.

Getting back on the practice field late July (and no earlier according to head coach Sean Payton)...

At some point in the last four months of this extended episode of The Twilight Zone, an important public-health issue became a political litmus test. It shouldn’t be. And people and organizations in positions of influence are trying to reverse that.

The Saints are on board with the effort, posting on Monday an image of coach Sean Payton wearing a face covering bearing a Saints logo on the sideline, with this message: “Do your job . . . wear a mask.”
