In the end, all it takes is a wild card birth, then anything can happen. I honestly do not think the 2012 version of the New Orleans Saints will get that far. I am not saying it is something like a 3-13 deal, but I do see something like 8-8, and no playoffs. I do get that the Saints organization is built like no other, but in the same, when it comes to winning/losing the differences are so close I have to believe they will lose games that they would have previously won. The coaching turmoil is going to bite them in the butt at some point. Coaching by committee has no shot at the NFL level, but the Saints out of necessity will have to try it. I seriously don't see anything great coming out of it in the end. Just a lackluster 8-8 season, and the Saints regroup for 2013.

Just based on talent alone I feel our chances are good.. goodell wants us to fail but the only way we can go now is up!

Nobody wants to play the Saints..

The entire lot of NFL teams no full well this is possibly the best offence ever to march on a field & can bury you in 1 quarter . NFC S. also knows if any kind of tackling etc..shows up in NO it will big trouble for all. Brees has that team convinced & proved it many over that when dissaplined & clicking they are the best that anyone has seen on the offensive side of ball. I would go as far to say our chances are better this year then last as just the pure mind set of not letting our offence take care of it all as in ex.. as our lack luster D cost us a SB in SF. Basically nobdy wanted to play'em last year & surely not this year as nothing like swatting a hornet nest in broad daylite. SB title is goal & nothing has changed. HC..? not needed ,.. proven last year.

I have to disagree with you on that and the situation they went through last season was completely different and in no way proved that the Saints would do just fine without SP, because through it all he remained a key part of everything.

I like the Saints chances better than those of Carolina or Tampa.
Not to mention I think SP has done a good enough job for the folks around him to keep things aflost until he gets back. I still think Saints win the South and have 2nd or 3rd seed.

Brees can run it...

Good thing about Brees ,.. he is very,very smart dude & in my mind the coaching staff in play during this 2012 process is plenty to go & win a SB. Brees doesn't need a play caller & has had a very long leash for quite some time. The defense side of ball is were the focus should be to get another ring. Sh.. use the entire B.. scandel & spin it positive to play smash mouth D. similar to the last great Saints team. Nothing like a little healthy fear instilled in the minds of our competitors. Playing at home will not be fun for anyone comeing to the Dome in 2012. JMO....
