Even the devoid of faith gotta go with 9-7...
too many changes to not be hopeful..

RE: Re: I say 9-7 this year

I'm going to predict 7-9 because with Parcells and Belichick it took a year of transition for them to evaluate the roster on the field and fill the rest of the roles on the team in the second offseason. It might take a year for Payton to instill a winning attitude in NO. Also, it's hard to predict what the emotional impact of returning after Katrina will have on the team. It will inspire them certainly, but the players must be patient with Payton's new system and avoid taking unnecessary risks.

I say we'll get 9-10 wins this year, anything better than that would be a huge step forward.

RE: Re: I say 9-7 this year

50 - 50 would be great. OL is my biggest concern. a Power rush is going to be the test till the OL proves it has gelled. So I see alot of quick short passes. TE and WR will need to perform unlike any time before. Watch Payton bench for drops. Karney will hopefully be able to block just one man in the hole instead of 2 and 3. The D will rebound this year a bit.

anything less than 9-7 would be uncivilized.

Only, a true Saints fan would be happy with a 7-9 season.

Is there any other place on earth where below .500 would be celebrated?

Must be an AZ Cardinals fan too...
