I'm curious, who all thinks we don't have a chance? Most of what I've read says we're still the favorites.

We are clearly the best team in the NFC South. After that, why not bring it all home?

Still too early to be worrying myself with how well we'll do this year. Still think we are a playoff team regardless. And we're finally getting a defense, an actual tackling defense!

Payton has been here 6 years building the blueprint that has made us who we are. Winning a super bowl without him on the sidelines would do nothing but further state what kind of franchise he and Loomis have built, in my opinion. It makes no sense for anyone to think it would diminish his importance.

And for the record, I think we are better now than last year. As others have said, our defense was bad last year anyway, so having a few defenders suspended is not that big a deal. Then add on the major upgrade at linebacker, plus Bunkley on the interior, and we have a much improved defense. The offense might even be better, and they broke records last year, as we all know. With Sproles having a year of the system under his belt, and Jimmy Graham now a well established star, we shouldn't see any slow start this year. Health is the key... If we stay healthy, we're not only the best team this year, but we have the potential to be one of the greatest teams this league has seen.

But don't tell any haters I said that. They might think I'm delusional for looking at something other than negative conjecture by high ranking butt holes who call themselves executives.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I agree burningmetal!

I'm very excited to see the progression some of the young players have made and will make under Spags' tutelage: Jordan, Wilson, Casillas, Bussey, Gallette, Patrick, Robinson, Abdul-Quddus, Amaya, Jenkins, and last but not least Romeus.

All of these guys are 24 or younger and have heaps of potential just waiting to be harnessed and focused by a capable teacher, and Spags certainly seems to have the ability to do just that.

These guys are part of the reason why I'm also not just excited about the coming season, but about the future of this defense and the team in general.

Right'o!

I forgot to mention the most important addition to the defense, but you said it. Spagnuolo... This guy alone brings credibility to any defense, which makes the acquisitions even more great. Of the players you mentioned, I'm most excited to see how he develops Romeus, Gallette and Wilson. But all those guys have serious talent, no doubt. Can't wait to see it all come together.

It shows that you need to read his book to understand the way he set up this organization after Katrina wrecked New Orleans. The Saints organization is built to sail with the wind at our backs.......not motor around in the harbor.
We should be grateful that Payton took so much time getting everything right when he came in after Katrina. He evaluated everybody from the kitchen staff up and brought in the right people who were smart and wanted to build something together. And that's what he's done. He won't be here but an extension of him will be through the staff. Dude the skies are not falling, no matter how badly God-all want's it too.
We will over come and we will be victorious.
