last year the saints shouldn't have had the record they did! They had injuries to key players and traveled all over to practice in parking lots and high schools They were every-bit a 8-8 team last year. Payton will not win overnight but will lay out the foundation for the team and add through the draft and free agency. I feel that n.o. can be better than .500 this year even in the nfc north!

not counting last season.we are an 8-8 team every year, and we improved our team alot, anything less is a dissapointment.


I think 9-7 should be our low to shoot for

There's lots of things to count here:

1) We were 3-13 last year.

2) We live in the toughest division in the NFL.

3) We have the toughest 4th place schedule in the NFL this year.

4) While some things are new, we still have the same FO. They've had some problems stocking the pantry this season. We're still very very weak at LB, OT, and DT.

That's the reality of the situation.

I'll be satisfied if the Saints can do a few things this season.

1) Play smart. No stupid penalties. No stupid turnovers.

2) Play aggressive on both sides of the ball. On defense we need players flying all over the field.

3) Win the games we should win. Compete in the games where we are overmatched. We have the playmakers to make every game interesting. But I think we're going to have a few of those 31-30 games someone else posted earlier. We need to make sure we have the 31.

4) Learn to play in the NFC South. Our true goal this season if nothing else is to take one game from each of our division rivals. It should be our mission above all else not to get swept by any of them.

Now that may still be a 6-10, 7-9 season. But it's a big building block for 2007.

9-7 frankly would be the worst finish we could have:

1) Even in the weak NFC it probably doesn't make the playoffs.

2) Even if you do make the playoffs you'll be a #6 seed and out after the 1st week.

3) The draft position is absolutely terrible.

You want to storm the postseason, not drunkenly stagger into it. The Saints don not yet have the horses on the lines and at LB to be dominate.

2007 is another story though. A story yet to be written.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
