NFC South preview: New Orleans Saints are the pick

The outlook for New Orleans



A last-minute playoff loss at San Francisco, one of the most notorious scandals in NFL history and an unprecedented season-long suspension of Coach Sean Payton helped the national consciousness to forget how spectacular this team was last season. The Saints won their final eight regular-season games to finish 13-3 while shattering several NFL offensive records. And they could have/should have won the Super Bowl if they hadnšt stumbled so badly at San Francisco. The Saints will face unprecedented challenges, but they'll also use that as motivation. And they still have one of the all-time great offenses, led by Drew Brees and an absurd amount of weapons. The emergence of playmakers Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles made this offense more potent, and now theyšll be flanked by a defense that should improve under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Maybe another 13-3 season is too much to ask. But the various predictions out there of a 9-7 season or missing the playoffs seem far off the mark.

I keep hearing a 10-6 season for us. I could see 11-5 with no worries or 9-7 in the same fashion

Earlier I posted that we could go 13-3 and I'm sticking to it...........either that or 12-4............or at worst we go 11-5. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :wink:

Before pre-season I picked 11-5, after pre-season, I'd like an option for 12-4.

Must win the division because IMO we Must have home field advantage. All playoff exits happened on the road.
