I think out of the division, the Falcons is going to regress a good bit based off the fact they want to copy the Saints as much as possible and it backfires on them when they try to do it. Under 10 wins is what I see from Atl.

The other 2, Carolina and Tampa, thats a work in progress, depends on what they do this preseason, I am not counting one of them out from challenging the Saints for the division, I think though Atl is the odd team out from doing it this season.
For several years now Atlanta has been blessed with relatively few key or excessive injuries.

I think it backfires on them this year.

Carolina and Tampa concern me more than the Falcons do.

They are due for it.

Turner is turning 30 and moving into an offensive scheme that is going to rely more on Matt Ryan now.

That may be a recipe for disaster outside the fact I think that the Falcons defense is going to absolutely blow this season even under Mike Nolan.

The article was all about statistics. Of course it was spot on.

First number is number of backs. The second is the number of Tight Ends. So The 21 is the base package with 2 backs and 1 TE.

I can't see Tampa challenging for the division with Freeman. That's not a comment on his skill, just his personality and leadership. Tampa has the right pieces just none work together.

I like to believe Carolina or Tampa is going to challenge for the Division, But when you really begin to look at the other 3 teams, theirs that question on if any of them is even going to be a factor in challenging the Saints for the division this season.

#1 Tampa Bay added some talent on Offense I know, not sure what they did with the Defense, still got Freeman back there who may be out of a starting job by Week 6.

#2 Carolina has had a decent offense last season under Cam Newton, what raises the question here is, will Newton have the 2nd year slump like so many QBs have had? He blew goats in the Pro Bowl which might be a sign of things to come.

#3 Atlanta is changing their offense around to be more pass heavy, which if you see Matt Ryan, may not be a good idea. I also believe the Falcons defense will be worse.

They have all 3 added Talent (I dunno about Atl, they didnt add anything much did they except a CB?) The only problem with the talent these teams have added though is not key pieces.

However if their is 1 team I would keep a strict eye on this season in terms of who is challenging the Saints, its going to be Tampa Bay.
