New Orleans Saints, rookie QB Ian Book fell to 20 players set aside by COVID-19

NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints looked like a team until the fourth quarterback and lost a total of 20 qualified players thanks to COVID-19 on Monday night in a 20-3 defeat to the Miami Dolphins.

Rookie quarterback Ian Book’s pick-six in his third NFL game was a huge marijuana hit. But he was not alone, as the whole case fell to the ground overnight, ending in a total of 164 yards. The Saints went 0 out of 12 for the third fall, and the Book was dismissed eight times.

The only saving grace was that because this loss came against an AFC opponent, the Saints (7-8) still have a 33% chance of making the playoffs when they beat the Carolina Panthers home next Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons on the road. Week 18.

But they will need more bodies to make that happen - starting with at least one quarterback (Taysom Hill or Trevor Siemian) and at least one annoying one (Terron Armstead or Ryan Ramczyk).

QB Split: The Stake is tightly packed against New Orleans' fourth-round draft pick, Book, who was thrown into the first game on Thursday and took his first NFL photos on Monday night after the offensive line ended. And his performance went the way you would expect under the circumstances.

The pick-six came to the bottom that was placed on the third and 3rd drawing line. And Book missed a few open receivers and probably took a few more bags than she should have. But it also seemed to escape the pressure all night long. He finished 12 of 20 with 135 yards without touching the ground and two touchdowns.

This was supposed to be the red season of the Book. It may be that the Saints will give him a second chance to make his first appearance next summer - but it is clear he will not be in Group A as a quarterback starting in 2022.

Unpleasant record: Saints set an NFL record with 57 different starters this season, according to ESPN Stats and Information. They can be indebted to both a host of injuries and COVID news for that (Book, offensive fight Caleb Benenoch and receiver Easop Winston Jr. all made their first 2021 games on Monday night). The record is still being played, however, as the Houston Texans are 56 years old and counting while discussing their own COVID issues.

Promising style: The Saints' defense fought well for a week after shutting down Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady - even without defenders Demario Davis and Kwon Alexander and Malcolm Jenkins. Since the pick-six was not in their register, they allowed only 259 yards and 13 points. Pro Bowl corner defender Marshon Lattimore had a reunion. Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Jordan had two sacks in the second week in a row, and defensive end Marcus Davenport added a third.

Best Statistics from ESPN Statistics and Information:

  • As a result of choosing six, the Saints have now conceded more points in opening the drive this season (7) than they did (6).
  • The Saints had 2 negative yards in the first quarter. Those are the few who have ever been under coach Sean Payton.
  • The Notre Dame quarterbacks have lost 24 straight NFL titles, thanks to Brady Quinn, Jimmy Clausen, DeShone Kizer and Book. Quinn was the last to win the game (Week 13 of the 2012 season).
