What happens next year? Can we get back to winning 11 games?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I believe these are sure wins.............jets, bills, cards, 49ers(not happening again), vikings(hopefully thats who we get), panthers once, bucs once, and falcons once. With maybe the possibility of a sweep of one of them. But our FA and draft will ...

I believe these are sure wins.............jets, bills, cards, 49ers(not happening again), vikings(hopefully thats who we get), panthers once, bucs once, and falcons once. With maybe the possibility of a sweep of one of them. But our FA and draft will depend upon our chances against pats on the road, dolphins(they have been problems for us), rams(its always a battle on their field), seahawks(their defense and run game and Qwest), and if we draw them cowboys(I'm sensing a road win trend). If its giants its another win for us(in our dome). I can see 8 sure wins but the rest depends on the defense in the offseason.

Nothing is a sure win, we have a history of failing against 1 win teams

However I do believe that we will be a different team when Sean Paytons back, by different team I mean the team we had from 2009-2011

Couple play makers in the draft and maybe free agency and we are set

I want to see what happens with the draft/free agency before speculating next years wins...

While there are no sure wins, we're not going to lose all the easy games either. I look at recent history in some cases, we have owned the jets(the year 05 we beat them and passed the Revis test by running the ball), the bills don't scare good offenses on the road, and the vikes are not really all that scary to me. I think we can win and vikes schedule next year consists of steelers, bengals, ravens, redskins, cowboys, and a likely trip to Seattle again. They won't be 10-6 again next year. Which means we can take advantage of that.

Either way, I just don't want a disappointment.

I think with Payton back this exact 2012 team could win 11 games next year.

Historically we are not a good run defense. Also, while I dont think we will lose all the easy games either, we do have a very bad habit of losing the 1-2 games that bite us in the arse.

May just be me but Adrian Peterson gives me night sweats.

I agree with Danno. Anyway about next year, I will wait to see who our coach is and who we can **** can and pick up via draft and FA next year. With Payton, anything is possible, without, we are .500 again.

We get our mojo back next season. We're going freaking un-freaking-defeated.

Bank it.

I think Coach P was worth a minimum of 2-3 games this year and with that said we would have been in pretty decent shape. Between his game management, coralling Drew when he wondered and slappin the bejesus out of the receivers. So, i think we are in good shape for next season.
