The New Orleans Saints are in search of an identity this offseason. New Orleans was an elite franchise under Sean Payton and won its lone Super Bowl and four straight NFC South titles under his leadership from 2017 to 2020. Payton stepped away from the team before this last season, and now he is looking to get back into coaching but not with the Saints. New Orleans is in line to receive draft compensation from whoever ends up signing Payton to be its next head coach, but this team needs more than that if it wants to contend again. The Saints do not have a quarterback, a superstar, or an identity, making this one of the least interesting teams in the NFL.

New Orleans Saints 2022 Season Recap

At the start of the season, Jameis Winston was New Orleans’ starting quarterback. Winston and Andy Dalton had been vying for the starting job throughout the offseason, but Winston won out due to his big play ability even though he was a high-risk, high-reward option.

The former No. 1 overall pick only lasted three games as the starting quarterback though. Winston was too turnover prone, completing 63.5% of his passes for 858 yards (7.5 YPA) with four touchdowns and five interceptions, and he was sacked 11 times and fumbled twice. He was injured in the loss to Carolina, and although he was healthy a few weeks later, he never saw the field again.

Dalton was the starter the rest of the way. The journeyman didn’t have a bad season at all, outperforming more than a handful of “star” signal callers despite Michael Thomas only playing in three games due to injury. Dalton completed 66.7% of his passes for 2,871 yards (7.6 YPA) with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Rookie Chris Olave was the top target and had a nice debut season in the Big Easy. The first-round pick out of Ohio State caught 72 passes for 1,042 yards and four touchdowns for New Orleans. His production was all the more impressive considering Thomas missed 14 games and Jarvis Landry missed eight games, leading to the complementary options being undrafted rookie Rashid Shaheed and tight end Juwan Johnson.

It was tough to watch Alvin Kamara at times this season. Kamara wasn’t nearly as effective as he has been in the past. He ran for 897 yards (4.0 YPC), but he only found the end zone twice. Additionally, Kamara wasn’t as efficient as a receiver out of the backfield with 57 receptions for 490 yards and two touchdowns.

Taysom Hill continues to be an interesting wild card in this offense. Hill will spend at least one more season in New Orleans, and he completed 13 of 19 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns while under center in 2022. He was the Saints’ second-leading rusher with 575 yards (6.0 YPC) and seven touchdowns, and Hill also caught nine passes for 77 yards and two TDs.

New Orleans had a top ten defense in the NFL this season, but much of that was due to the Saints playing in the offensively anemic NFC South. They allowed 20.3 PPG and 314.8 YPG, yet opposing teams were able to have some success running against this front seven. Also, while the Saints averaged just 5.8 YPA and 184.4 YPG through the air as a pass defense, they ranked in the bottom five in interception rate.

Linebacker Demario Davis led New Orleans with 109 tackles and also had 6.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss. Davis ended up being the only Saints player to make the Pro Bowl. Tyrann Mathieu had a fine season with 91 tackles and three interceptions, while Cameron Jordan led the team with 8.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss.

Founded in 1967 as an expansion team, the New Orleans Saints have a colorful history of ineptitude and glory.

In the initial years of the franchise, the Saints could not find their way. New Orleans did not post a winning record until the 1987 season. Those two decades of losing featured one of the most popular players in franchise history.

Quarterback Archie Manning remains a legend to this day. Manning was a star on some really bad teams, and Saints fans never stopped appreciating his efforts against hopeless odds.

Jim Mora was the head coach of the first serious iteration of the Saints. Mora led the franchise to its first four playoff berths. New Orleans was a serious contender for the first time in franchise history in the Mora era that ran from 1986 through 1995.

Sean Payton took over the team in 2006 and led the Saints to their most successful period in team history. From 2006 through 2020, the Saints made the NFL Playoffs nine times. New Orleans won the 2009-10 season Super Bowl. That was the only title in franchise history.

Payton was the head coach during the infamous Bountygate scandal and was suspended for an entire season. But by the time he retired, all of that was forgotten. Payton partnered with quarterback Drew Brees for one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses. Both coach and quarterback are likely Hall of Fame-bound, Gayle Benson, the widow of deceased legendary owner Tom Benson, remains the team's owner. John Mecom Jr. was the original owner that put colorful but losing teams on the field.
