Back after the Chiefs game, I dug up some old individual game/season stats and compared the stats on the Saints defense, versus some of the defenses on the famous perceived "worst" teams in history at the first few games of their seasons -- the 2008 0-16 Lions, 0-14 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1-13 Saints of 1980-ish....too small of a sample size or games to be valid, and different eras, I know, but JUST FOR FUN...and man we are bad.

Winless Tampa Bay in 1976 actually had a better statistical defense than us. They got way more turnovers, LOL. We are historically bad.

Very important question: Based on which stat?

With out that being defined, the conversation is moot.
