New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said he was not concerned about any potential "backlash" he might face after inviting former Los Angeles Raiders coach Jon Gruden to attend practices last week, more than a year and a half after an email leak forced Gruden out of the league.

Following Tuesday’s OTA session, Allen said Gruden was among several coaches who have visited the team, adding the motivation behind the invitation was Gruden's connection with quarterback Derek Carr.

"Obviously, Jon's a guy that has a lot of experience with Derek, and Derek has had his most success under Jon Gruden," Allen said.

"And, so, we felt like bringing him in, having a chance to sit down and visit with him as an offensive staff, with the quarterbacks and just getting some new thoughts and ideas of things we might be able to implement."

Allen said the visit from Gruden likely won’t result in any major overhaul of the team’s offensive strategy. ...

The New Orleans Saints got back to winning football games on Sunday, taking down the Carolina Panthers 28-6 in the Caesars Superdome.

Derek Carr was seen yelling at Erik McCoy during today’s game, which isn’t the first incident we’ve seen between teammates this year. What does that mean for the Saints coach?

Derek Carr threw a pair of touchdowns to compliment a blocked-punt TD to take down a division rival at home.

With their win and Tampa Bay winning, the Black and Gold are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC South. Unfortunately, the Saints hold no tiebreakers over their rivals.

The New Orleans Saints came into this game at 5-7 trying to find an answer after going 0-3 the last three weeks. The Panthers, who were at 1-11 gave the Saints every reason to get back on track, which is... sort of what they did?

The Saints found a way Sunday in the Superdome defeating the Carolina Panthers 28-6 in what was a very dull game to watch at times. Both teams struggled to find offense specifically in the passing game. QB’s Derek Carr and Bryce Young accumulated just 256 yards through the air combined. One of, if not the lowest marks we’ve seen this year. However, both teams...

Panthers QB Bryce Young's rough rookie season got worse against the Saints

NEW ORLEANS — Struggling Carolina quarterback Bryce Young slumped his shoulders after overthrowing open receiver Jonathan Mingo for what could have been a 45-yard touchdown just before halftime Sunday.

It was one of many squandered opportunities in an ugly 28-6 loss to the Saints, who played poorly enough to draw boos from the home crowd several times.

Even by the standards of what already had been a brutal rookie season for the NFL's top overall draft choice out of Alabama, Young slipped to a new low on Sunday.

After completing fewer than half of his passes for the first time last week...

A lot happened in the New Orleans Saints’ win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday — both good and bad. But nothing caught fans’ attention more than the late-game altercation between quarterback Derek Carr and center Erik McCoy.

Carr picked himself up off the ground in a fury after being sacked by Panthers linebacker Frankie Luvu, who beat right guard Cesar Ruiz to bowl Carr over as he dropped back to pass. Carr took aim at McCoy after the play, who responded in kind, and the pair had to be separated. Left guard James Hurst walled off McCoy as they returned to the sideline where backup...

The New Orleans Saints recognized Mickey Loomis for his 200th career win as their general manager on Sunday after taking down the Carolina Panthers, and it’s quite an achievement. Loomis is the longest-tenured general manager in the league (not counting owner-GM’s like Jerry Jones and head coach-GM’s such as Bill Belichick), and he’s joined rare company after seeing the team’s he’s built win 200 games.

Look at the names on the list of executives to see 200 wins: Tex Schramm, Bill Polian, Kevin Colbert, and Ozzie Newsome, plus Jones, Belichick, and Al Davis. That’s the kind of company...

It was another tough game to watch for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, as they squeaked out a win against the Carolina Panthers. The day was defined by two quarterbacks, Derek Carr and Bryce Young, unable to find much that worked on the offensive side of the ball. Still, the Saints walked away with a victory and are tied for first place in the NFC South.

How did we get here? Let’s break it down by asking and answering three questions:
