The New Orleans Saints experienced their biggest loss of the season on Sunday, falling to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a final score of 26-9. Despite their previous ability to keep games close, this game proved to be a major setback for the Saints.
Fans and analysts took to social media to express their disappointment with the team’s performance. Nick Underhill tweeted, “As brutal of an offensive performance as I can remember.” Others targeted specific individuals within the coaching staff, calling for the departure of defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael. One tweet read, “The Saints are not winning a damn thing until Dennis Allen and Pete Carmichael are gone.”
Criticism was also directed at Carmichael’s playcalling, with fans expressing frustration at the lack of innovation and situational awareness. Some even questioned how Carmichael could have observed the successful offensive strategies employed by former head coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees for 15 years, only to come up with subpar plays.
The inconsistent performance of the offense has been a concern for quite some time now. It was noted that Carmichael’s offense has failed to score over 21 points in a game since before Thanksgiving of last year.
It remains to be seen if any changes will be made within the coaching staff in response to this disappointing loss. Fans are hoping for improvements in the team’s offensive strategies and more dynamic playcalling in the future.
