3 Takeaways from the 2021 New Orleans Saints Offense

Three takeaways from the 2021-22 New Orleans Saints offense.

BRENDAN BOYLAN23 HOURS AGO

The New Orleans Saints have consistently ranked among the best in the league offensively under head coach Sean Payton. However, 2021 may end up serving as an outlier on Payton's resume. The Saints had a revolving door of linemen, quarterbacks, and wide receivers. This recipe resulted in one of the league's worst-rated offenses of the season.

However, there were some bright spots for New Orleans throughout the year. Before Jameis Winston's injury, he looked like the real deal behind a stellar offensive line, and Alvin Kamara played at a Pro-Bowl level yet again.

So how do we access this season for the Saints Offense? Was it a success? Far from it... But Sean Payton and the company learned some valuable lessons and proved this team is still set up for success when healthy.

Here are three takeaways from the Saints' Offense during the 2021-22 NFL Season.

Failing to Address the Wide Receiver Position Proved to be the Wrong Decision

Headed into the 2021 NFL Offseason, New Orleans faced a mountain of negative cap space, and though they were able to erase the $100M figure to get under the Salary Cap, it came at a price. A price that included the team's leading receiver from 2020, Emmanuel Sanders.

The veteran wide-out would sign with the Bills and left New Orleans with a significant hole at WR 2. The Black and Gold ultimately opted to stick with the guys already on the roster (Callaway, Smith, Harris) to fill that need, including Michael Thomas, rehabbing an ankle injury.

Unfortunately for the Saints, Thomas' rehab resulted in a shut-down season, and Tre'Quan Smith missed multiple weeks with a preseason injury. Vaulting Callaway and Harris (Now Harty) into starting roles, a big ask for two UDFAs.

Overall, the pairing put together a modest season considering their expected role to the one they played (I expect both to be big parts of the Saints offense for years to come). But throughout the season, New Orleans receivers could not create separation, dropped passes, and could never find a steady dose of consistency to help manufacture points.

Sean Payton consistently told the media he "liked" the guys they have in the locker room, and though he may have liked them, they did not produce what the Saints needed. A steady veteran may not have solved all the problems for the receiving corps this year, but it could have given them a nice boost.

Injuries to the O-Line Hurt More than the Injuries at Quarterback

With multiple Pro-Bowl selections across the offensive line, the Saints have one of the best O-lines in the NFL.... well, when they are healthy, that was the team's Achilles heel in 2021. It is now well documented that the Saints set a new NFL record this season, starting 58 different players. Still, the offensive line was the one unit ...

Jimmy said, just so we're clear, "feel blessed u got out of there. Time to go shine big dog. All the best. Good luck.Ē

He promptly deleted the tweet. Cowards defending cowards. You fit right in.
He just asked for a link bud!

Hicks does not like Brees one bit apparently.
Apparently Brees is classier than Hicks and Hicks didn't like it. Ha!

Guido is not the truth police here or anywhere else. This is not a one-off. If it were I'd leave him be. This is a pattern of behavior that is well documented, bud...

You said in a PM along the lines of whatever....so, whatever. If you keep this nonsense up I'm going after you like you've decided to do after Guido. I've got thick skin for insults hurled in my direction. Bring this **** to stop or find out how you like being driven out of town.

I asked you in a PM how to block you like you suggested I do. I don't understand computers. We used punch cards in college like NASA in those old films. Yeah, I'm older than dirt and I don't have time for your personal vendettas. If you continue, then I'll make you my personal vendetta like you did with Guido if you persist. I don't like, and others posters agree, your personal attacks on other members no matter who it is. If you want this discourse on the board we'll see how you like it. This should be right up your alley with the constant bickering. Just give it a rest please for everybody's sake.

Thanks for listening. I do like you though. I think we're friends on here.

I wonder how telling this is given that several others were signed to futures contracts?
