ESPN's Double Coverage - ATL @ NO
 
1 Attachment(s)
Sean Payton is back to right the wrongs of last season, when his New Orleans Saints went off the rails in his absence. The first test of the season is a fitting one: The Saints open against their hated NFC South rivals, the Atlanta Falcons, who ran away with the division last season even though they split with New Orleans.

Have Payton and new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan fixed that horrid defense of a year ago? Will the Saints have much of a running game? Can the Falcons protect their franchise quarterback and give him time to find his myriad weapons?

ESPN.com NFL columnist Ashley Fox and NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas discuss what Saints and Falcons fans can expect from the latest installment of this heated rivalry.

Fox: Heís back. It is redemption time for Payton after missing a year because of the bounty scandal. Iím sure, given how beloved Payton is in New Orleans, that the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will be so loud it might lift off. Iíve seen different estimates for Paytonís worth. How many wins do you think heís worth to the Saints?

Yasinskas: I think Payton's presence instantly takes the Saints from a non-playoff team to a playoff team. His skills as an offensive guru are well known, and that certainly will help. But I think the more subtle benefit to having Payton back is his skill as a motivator. He's a master in that area, and he'll have his team ready for big games. Speaking of changes that came in the offseason, what do you think was the biggest move for the Falcons?

Ashley and Pat were two of the worst offenders in propogating the lies about GoodellGate (and snoopgate). Reading anything these two simians publish, particularly as a team, keeps them employed.

Revolt.

We won 7 games last season? What's a good head coach worth.. 4 games? A new D coordinator and scheme is worth 1 game.

We win at least 12 games.
