Marshall Faulk's Bold Prediction!!!
 
I just saw Marshall Faulk say on the NFL network that the Saints will have the #1 ranked offense and the #5 ranked defense in the NFL.

Well that's certainly bold. And Marshall Faulk is from New Orleans, so there is probably some bias there.

But still, it certainly is enjoyable to hear it nonetheless.

My predictions are as follows:

#1 ranked offense.
(Top three in fewest sacks allowed)
Drew Brees fails to crack 5,000 yards in passing (because he won't need to)
#19 ranked defense (huge, huge improvement over last year)

We go 13-3, securing the number one seed. Super Bowl here we come!

Offense: 1 or 2
Defense: if we hit anywhere around 19 would be amazing.
Not sure what Mr. Faulk can see in his crystal ball at 5 for the defense but I will hitch my wagon to his star.

If the Saints have the #5 ranked defense, I sure as hell hope we don't play the teams that have 1-4!

I'd be extremely happy at #15...we'd already be whoopin some ass. At #5? God help every other team in the league...

I'll hitch my wagon to Rails wagon to Marshal's star.

With 4 potential HOF'ers on offense, they should be #1. Defense at 5 however...not enough tin foil on the planet to make a hat that big. I say mid 20's, maybe break into the teens now and then.

Sounds like someone finally knows what he's talking about.

I always liked Marshall ...

Btw... What was our final preseason defensive ranking?

Who?

I predict many unlikely events coalescing into a future that brings about a narrow circumstance without regard to the broader implications of those events because it pleases a small number of people.

Send me money.

Marshall may be from New Orleans, and is proud of South Louisiana...

But I Guaran-freaking-tee you that he calls it like it is...

He knows his coworkers just sit there and drink the coolaid - not him...

Surprised about his assessment on the defense, but we know that getting the older, slower, injured defensive players out of the way has been our biggest limitation...
