T.G.I.F: Thank God it's Football!
 
Brees got his long-term deal, no one’s picking the Saints in the NFC South and there are a lot of players in that locker room with giant chips on their shoulders. The 2011 New Orleans Saints were a fun team to watch. The 2012 team could be a scary team to watch.

9. Angry, motivated and overlooked New Orleans Saints

We’re used to feeling all warm and fuzzy about the New Orleans Saints. The way Drew Brees took an ailing city on his shoulders and led it to a Super Bowl title, the vision of the quarterback’s adorable son celebrating the win — headphones on, covered in confetti — is ingrained in our memories forever. And an offensive attack that is not only eye-pleasing but awe-inspiring has always made it very difficult for the casual NFL fan to dislike the Saints. Well, that’s all changed.

After an offseason in which the team’s head coach and starting middle linebacker were suspended for the season, an audio leak of the ex-defensive coordinator telling the Saints defense that an opposing wide receiver “becomes human when we f****** take out that outside ACL” and an alleged wiretapping incident — the Saints are no longer the league’s feel-good story. They’re the villains. That could make them all the more entertaining this season.

Yea but we have a lot of adversity to overcome. I hope we have the wherewithal to weather the storm like Gil Favor and Rowdy Yates when there is a drought and no water for 100 miles.

There is one hell of a chip on this teams shoulders. We will turn heads this year.
