It'd be easy to count out the New Orleans Saints this season. The excuses for a mulligan season are readymade. They have an unprecedented set of circumstances and formidable array of distractions to overcome.




Consequently, they will kick off the 2012 season as the league's International Team of Mystery. No squad is more utterly unpredictable. They are talented enough to win the Super Bowl, yet handicapped enough to miss the playoffs altogether. No one - not even the Saints themselves - knows what to expect.

Joe Vitt, Drew Brees and Roman Harper sounded like giddy teenagers climbing aboard a mega-coaster as they addressed the media Tuesday. Their excitement was tangible, yet, so, too was their uncertainty. A touch of anxiety tempered their expectations, but not in a bad way. The unpredictability of the situation could be just the edge the Saints need to propel them along this road not taken.

"I'm excited about the unknown because in a lot of ways we don't necessarily know what to expect," Brees said.

The Saints start practice on Thursday with a litany of unanswered questions:

Who will serve as the interim interim head coach for the first six games of the season?

Who will fill the considerably large cleats of linebacker Jon Vilma and defensive end Will Smith should their season-opening suspensions remain intact?
How quickly will the club take to new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnulo's new scheme?

Are Curtis Lofton, David Hawthorne and Chris Chamberlain the next Dome Patrol?

What impact, if any, will the loss of mainstays Carl Nicks, Tracy Porter and Robert Meachem have on the won-loss record?

Who will be in charge of personnel moves when General Manager Mickey Loomis steps aside?

"This is uncharted territory," Brees said.

The good news is the Saints are embracing the uncertainty instead of fearing it.
