Dennis Allen’s halftime interview didn’t go over very well with Saints fans | saints


The New Orleans Saints got off to a promising start Thursday night, building a 14-6 lead over the Arizona Cardinals in the second quarter, and then things went sideways in a hurry.

The Saints were up 14-6 with about 2:30 remaining in the second quarter, but the Cardinals mounted a furious rally to take a 28-14 lead at the half – helped by a pair of interceptions thrown by Andy Dalton late in the second quarter

Dalton, who had already thrown a first quarter interception into the end zone, had an accurate pass to Marquez Callaway turn into an interception when the ball bounced off the receiver’s hands. Marco Wilson returned the interception 38 yards for a touchdown.

On the very next drive, Dalton was hit as he tried to find Chris Olave on a pass, and the ball was again picked off. This time, Isaiah Simmons returned the interception 56 yards for a TD.

Dalton finished the first half completing nine of 15 attempts for 177 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

When Saints coach Dennis Allen was asked what he told his quarterback at the half, his answer did not impress plenty of fans.

“Nothing, just keep doing what he’s doing,” Allen said on the Amazon broadcast.

Social media immediately lit up with Saints fans showing their surprise over Allen’s comments.
