Woof. The New Orleans Saints often send four, five, and six or more players to the Pro Bowl each year, but they aren’t exactly resonating with fans this season. After a week of voting on social media, just one Saints player leads his position group in votes across the NFC: free safety Tyrann Mathieu.

The NFL shared updates on Pro Bowl voting Wednesday, and Mathieu leads all safeties in the conference (as well as all Saints players) in votes with 44,674 ballots and counting. Public voting ends Thursday, Dec. 15 with players and coaches casting their votes on Friday, Dec. 16, and results to...

The New Orleans Saints are resting during their bye week, so what should fans be watching? If they’re still in the mood for more football, then Week 14’s prime-time matchups are intriguing. Both games featured on Sunday night and Monday evening are highlighting teams that have been linked to ex-Saints head coach Sean Payton, who is on the look for a new squad in 2023.

Sunday night’s kickoff on NBC will showcase the Los Angeles Chargers (6-6) against the visiting Miami Dolphins (8-4). The Chargers have been an obvious fit for Payton as a warm-weather team with a young franchise quarterback...

Mark Ingram suffers a slight MCL tear, per report

After a brutal finish to Monday night football, we learned that RB Mark Ingram suffered a slight tear of his MCL that won't require surgery. The timetable to return is 4-6 weeks, but with only four games remaining this means his season with the New Orleans Saints is most likely over. His contract expires this offseason and with the future of the position in question, there is a chance we saw the last of Mark Ingram in a Saints uniform.

If this was the last time Mark Ingram suits up for the Saints, that would mean the last carry for Ingram would be stepping out of bounds a yard before the...

12 head coach candidates Saints should consider in 2023

They haven’t done anything to suggest change is coming, but it almost feels inevitable that the New Orleans Saints will have to dismiss Dennis Allen. He inherited a 9-win team and turned it into one of the least-aggressive and poorly-coached squads around the league, prone to more procedural fouls and pre-snap penalties than many of their peers. Whether the Saints want to admit it or not, this story ends with showing him the door. If they’re smart they’ll cut their losses sooner rather than later.

No one set higher expectations for the Saints this year than the team themselves, billing...

Report: Saints RB Mark Ingram II out 4-to-6 weeks with MCL tear

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram II will miss four to six weeks with a slight tear of the medial collateral ligament in his knee, reports NFL Media’ Ian Rapoport.

The New Orleans all-time leading rusher will not require surgery but his season is apparently over.

Ingram rushed seven times for a team-high 27 yards Monday at Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He added five grabs for 22 yards but ran out of bounds before reaching the first down marker in the fourth quarter. The play started a sequence of events that saw the Saints blow a 16-3 in a 17-16 loss. Ingram had left the game injured...

Mercifully, the New Orleans Saints season effectively came to an end when they choked away a two-score lead in their Monday night loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints still have very slim mathematical postseason chances, but it will be nothing short of a biblical miracle thanks to their latest choke job.

New Orleans, now 4-9, clinched their first losing season since 2016. They seem assured of their first double-digit loss season since 2005 and just their second since 1999.

With that kind of abysmal showing, there are sure to be changes. Head coach Dennis Allen and offensive...

Report: Mark Ingram II likely done for the year with knee injury

This is just unfortunate. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram II is out 4 to 6 weeks with a “slight tear of his MCL” in his knee after Monday night’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though the injury won’t require surgery. With just five weeks left in the regular season, odds are Ingram’s year is over. He’s been limited with a knee injury in practice earlier this year, and he recently missed three games due to an MCL strain. It’s unclear whether this is the same knee, but what is certain is that he’ll be out of action for a while.

The Saints are in their bye week, and they have another injury on their hands to deal with when they come back to work for their game against the Falcons. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, veteran running back Mark Ingram has a slight MCL tear and will likely be out the rest of the season.

Ingram is set to become a free agent in the offseason, this will leave New Orleans with Alvin Kamara and Dwayne Washington on the active roster. David Johnson and Derrick Gore are on the practice squad as the other options readily available for the offense. Placing Ingram on injured reserve would...

Saints should have been complaining about Donovan Smith’s holding

On Tuesday’s PFT Live, we talked about some of the blatant holding in which Buccaneers tackle Donovan Smith engaged during the final drives of Monday night’s win over the Saints. On Wednesday’s PFT Live, we looked at every play from those drives during which he held.

It’s amazing that he was flagged for holding only twice. It’s even more amazing that the Saints weren’t repeatedly and loudly losing their minds about it.

Chris Simms made the point during both shows that the players who had been held should have been complaining to the officials. At some point, coach Dennis Allen needed to...

Derry’s Week 14 NFL Picks: Vikings are dogs to Detroit? Can Ravens fly without Lamar Jackson?

Missed field goals, dropped passes and one less first down cost me an over. One point in a 10-9 game broke the leg of a teaser we have hit nearly every week this season. A barrage of points in a tight game on Sunday night killed another best bet.

Yes, boys and girls, it certainly was THAT kind of week. Forget that the Saints broke the hearts of all Who Dats in WhoDatville with their shenanigans Monday night. (OK, some of us won’t forget that one for a while.)

Meanwhile, we got an overwhelming majority of the picks that were not involved in best bets correctly, going 9-6 against the...

Saints had a need for speed, and they found Rashid Shaheed — but that's not all he brings

There was one thing that immediately made everybody take note of the undrafted, unheralded rookie free agent from Weber State this past summer.

Here’s a hint: It rhymes with Rashid Shaheed.

“You saw the speed early on,” New Orleans Saints coach Dennis Allen said.

“Everybody saw his speed,” quarterback Andy Dalton said.

“He’s a guy that had elite speed,” receivers coach Kodi Burns said.

That’s how to catch an eye. Rashid Shaheed can jet. In a game played almost exclusively by fast people, he stands out for how fast he is. It is obvious to anyone who gets the opportunity to see him move...

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram suffered a slight MCL tear last Monday during the team's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida, according to a report by's Ian Rapoport.

The injury will supposedly keep Ingram out of play for four to six weeks and therefore likely end his season. Ingram will not require surgery.

The Saints have their bye this week and then four regular-season games remaining on their 2022 schedule, starting with a Dec. 18 rematch with the Atlanta Falcons inside the Caesars Superdome.

During Monday's game, Ingram ran the ball seven times for 27...

Mark Ingram likely out for season with MCL tear

Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Ingram suffered a slight ear of his MCL and will miss four to six weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Given that the regular season ends in five weeks and the Saints are not in playoff contention, it’s hard to believe Ingram would rush back, so his season is likely over.

Ingram apologized after the loss to the Buccaneers for stepping out of bounds a yard short of a first down in a crucial set of downs that saw the Saints end up punting to set up the Bucs’ first touchdown of their fourth quarter...

The New Orleans Saints haven’t been eliminated from the playoffs, but they’re about as close as you can possibly get. So what do they have left to play for coming out of their Week 14 bye? Pride is one thing. So are individual accomplishments. No one wants to be left counting stats and checking the box score in late December, but that’s where we are. And first-year wide receiver Chris Olave has given Saints fans plenty to cheer about.

Olave will come out of the Saints bye week needing 251 receiving yards to break the rookie record his mentor Michael Thomas set in 2016 (1,137). He’ll have...
