Alvin Kamara Expects Tough Conversations After Saints' Humbling Loss to Bucs

Alvin Kamara expresses frustration with the struggling New Orleans Saints offense, calling for tough conversations and changes.

Alvin Kamara is clearly dissatisfied with the current state of the New Orleans Saints offense. While he was serving his three-game suspension, he watched as the team struggled to move the ball and score points. However, upon his return, the offense's performance hit a new low, only managing to score 9 points and gain a total of 197 yards. Kamara himself accounted for 84 of those yards, which is a staggering 42.6%.

During an interview with reporters in the team locker room, Kamara expressed his concerns about the offense. He believes it's time for some serious discussions after such a humbling start to the season. The once-feared Saints offense is now averaging a mere 13.8 points per game as they entered October.

"It's been two years since we had that offense that was rolling. Now we're kind of in this rut," Kamara paused, carefully choosing his words. "It is what it is right now. What you see. Like I said, we've got to have some conversations about something. Because I don't like losing."

It's clear that the team hasn't been the same since Drew Brees retired. Despite knowing that this day would come, they failed to adequately prepare for life without their star quarterback. Jameis Winston hasn't been a good fit for the offense, and head coach Sean Payton has struggled to maintain the team's winning record in the 2021 season. When Payton left, they attempted to maintain some continuity by promoting Dennis Allen and Pete Carmichael to key positions. Unfortunately, the results speak for themselves.

Last year, the Saints finished with a disappointing 7-10 record, and this season, they are barely holding on at 2-2. If a few kicks had gone differently, they could easily be 0-4 or even 3-1. The fact is, they haven't been able to dominate opponents the way fans and Kamara are accustomed to. Every game is a challenge, and every down feels like an uphill battle. Offensively, everything seems to be a struggle, which was never the case when they had a future Hall of Fame quarterback leading the way.

It's important to acknowledge that another Hall of Famer won't simply walk into the facility and take over as the team's quarterback. That's not the reality the Saints are facing. As Kamara mentioned, it's time for some tough conversations. They need to evaluate who is calling the plays, designing the strategies, and putting the players in the right positions. If that means making changes to job titles and responsibilities, then so be it. The current approach is clearly not working, and they can't afford to continue on the same path.
