Cool 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

I. Rob Ryan constructs a beautiful symphony of chaos defensively. Saints have a Top 10 Defense. 4th in the League in Turnovers.

II. Mark Ingrams breakout Season ... Right On Time

III. Jimmy Grahams Dominant Streak of Consecutive Games With a TD Begins

IV. Rufus Johnson the next Aldon Smith

V. Kenny Stills Immediate Impact. Cover one or two of us but not all ... Stills reminds me of a more consistent Desean Jackson.

Re: 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

I'm excited to see what our D looks like, but man wouldn't it be great if Rufus Johnson gets in on the rotation and causes some havoc

More commitment to the running game, less predictability will make Mark Ingram alot more successful

I'm not sure about kenny stills until training camp, I've heard he had trouble with concentration and drops easy passes (they also said that about joe morgan though)

Re: 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

I have high hopes for Johnson and Stills, too. We made solid picks at both of those points in the draft, & I believe that the ball is definitely in their court with the pressure on them to utilize their talents and contribute. I'm curious about which side best suits Johnson's skill set. He has that "Demarcus Ware" build, which would lead me to believe that he would be in line for the same spot as Smith & Galette.

Re: 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

1. Every time Ingram gets stuffed behind the line by 3 defenders the IRvory fans will scream bust.

2. Every time a CB gets beat deep, 3 or more posters will blame Roman Harper.

3. When Harper does eventually get beaten (as does every safety in the NFL), 3 or more posters will say, "see I told you he can't cover".

4. When our offense stalls with 5 straight 3 & outs and commits 4 turnovers and we lose by a FG, 3 or more posters will blame the defense.

5. No one is gonna say, I wish we had kept Shanle.

Re: 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

Here's mine:

Ingram accounts for 12+ touchdowns.

Morgan becomes a 1,000 yard receiver.

Junior Galette breaks out and becomes one of the best pass rushers in the league.

Darren Sproles leads the league in all purpose yards.

Jimmy Graham shatters all single season records for TE's.

Re: 5 Bold Predictions for The UpComing Season

1 OT injury door continues so OG are forced to support OT asking OC to do to much. Saints forced into max protection on passing downs way too much. RB pay the price with an average season. Rookie starting LOT and a washed up former first rounder at ROT surprises everyone by season end.

2 WR and TE once again carry the team and some depth questions in the past start to get answered, future looks goods for the first time in years

3 Defense perform so so. DL looks to have hope, OLB exposed for not enough well rounded players. ILB play is ok but new young talent is needed. Secondary shows the most improvement and solid depth. saints end up rank 20th on defense. Ryan gets a C+ for coaching. buys him another year and another offseason were defense rules

4 Special teams become among the leagues best. The overall depth upgrade really shows here. Fans fall in love with the coffin corner kick once again after years without it. Saints kicking game get back on track. new kicker or not the nightmare ends in 2013. shanks cut back 90%

5 Sean Payton proves he is worth every penny he is paid and still have the saints in the playoff hunt in the end and a shot at winning the division

There is a "Report Post" button underneath everyone's avatar.

This. Especially #4.

Our defense won't be top 10, but hopefully we can be top 10 in turnovers.
