OMG...9.5

New Orleans Saints
Bovada win total: 9.5
My prediction: Over

My gut reaction was to say over, way over, but I mulled it harder than I thought I would. I believe the defense overachieved last season. I believe the NFC South will be more balanced this season. I believe the Saints' middle portion of the schedule is tougher than you might think and has a sneaky pre-bye portion that could lead to a stunner of a loss or two. There's always that Jimmy Graham holdout possibility, although not playing does him little good. With Sean Payton and Drew Brees on board for 16 games, though, I just couldn't predict fewer than 10 wins.

I'm going 12-4. we have only become stronger, and smarter. I'm offended by this persons prediction. We are a smart ethical team. JG will play, but for heavens sake figure out a way that the good teams don't shut him down. Was reading a post earlier, JG did nada vs Pat, Seahawks x2, Jets, so is he a difference maker ...Yes, but he needs to show up when it matters. Think the saints D will be what takes us back to the big game

    To say Jimmy needs to show up when it matters is not accurate or sound football analysis. If a team puts 5 guys on JG should he still show up? Seattle for instance played man to man bump and run single coverage on all of the Saints WR on every down last year daring any of them to beAt them deep. This should be exactly what a WR wants. Last years Saints receiving core had no one who could get open vs tough man coverage. Jam Jimmy at the line and give help over the top at least doubling and often triple teaming him. Crowd the line of scrimmage with 8 in the box and dare the Saints WR to beat you. This was a great gameplan vs last years Saints. I believe the addition of Cooks will defeat this strategy as I hope I get to watch Richard Sherman try to cover Cooks one on one. I bet he wouldn't try to jam him unless he had safety help.
