My Predictions?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I know we've all had varying opinions on the Saint's the last several months, but I thought since the preseason was over and we are pretty sure about the final roster I would make my prediction for the NFC South ...

My Predictions?

I know we've all had varying opinions on the Saint's the last several months, but I thought since the preseason was over and we are pretty sure about the final roster I would make my prediction for the NFC South and offer a few reasons why:

1st - Saint's 11-5, the Saint's have stayed the course whether we like it or not, consistency in players on a team makes alot of difference. We have arguably one of the deepest lines on both sides of the ball in the NFL, RB one of the best, WR corps very talented and fast and at TE, one of the best group's in the NFL. My only question marks remaining are on the defensive side of the ball. I think we need another heavy hitter in the secondary and a stronger MLB, but I truly believe by the end of the year the defense will be one of the best in the NFL, because of youth and speed.

2nd - Panther's 10-6 - the Panther's already have one strike against them, because they went to the Superbowl last year, few teams have returned win or lose and even fewer have returned to win the following year after losing the prior year. The Panther's creeped up on teams last year, which they won't have the luxury of this season. Everyone will be ready for them this season. I like Delhomme, but I think he is overated as a starting QB, I believe he is more a product of his surroundings then anything else.

3rd - Falcon's 8-8 - the Falcon's don't scare me as much as they did last season before Vick's injury. Vick seems tentative, even by preseason standards and anyone who touches him seems to be trying to kill the poor guy, hell I would be tentative too. I believe as Vick goes, so go the Falcon's. Vick will be not running for yards this year, but running for his life.

4th - Buc's 8-8 - the Buc's have been to the superbowl in the recent past, but made alot of changes this year and I do mean alot of changes. Takes time for all of the new players to gel together as a unit. Garner is suspect for me at running back and with Pittman out the first few games, McCardell a no show, kicking and backup QB concerns, they will be off to a slow start and by the way, the Saint's have the Buc's number anyway.

So, what do you think and how far am I off the mark?

Hey Gatorman, I knew I could get you to come out of that swamp. Where you been? You say tomato and I say potato, obviously different opinions, so I guess your\'s is 7 and 9 or 8-8 right? and no opinion on the other teams. I guess the other teams don\'t really matter much to me either, since we will be 11-5 and win the division.

You go 25, keep giving your opinion, it\'s important and don\'t believe anything different.
I like the fact that you agree with my record too.

Thanks
