Remember all of the comments from fans and members?
Drew is done
Our offense is soft
We cant run
Wish we had Denver's receivers
Wish we had Payton Manning
Wish we had a RB like Moreno
Sean Payton is a terrible play caller

Apples to apples except we played Seattle in the Clink.


We out ran, passed and scored, the greatest offense in history that had never faced a top 5 NFC defense in that season until the Super Bowl.

Ill take Payton, Brees, our WRs, our RBs, our entire team of the heralded Payton Manning any and every day of the week.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Two teams One Defense

It also gives us an insight into our team needs to improve our personnel as we will be facing this team again in the playoffs next year... until their cap is crushed with their soon to be pricey players.

Lets just see how much a Super Bowl Championship adds to the price of their free agents for 2014.

2013 Cap hits for Free agents
Bennett DE 4.8M
Giacomini RT 4.2m
McQuistian LT 3.3m
Tate WR 800k
Browner CB 700k
Baldwin WR 560k
Haushka K 620k

Their top 2 Receivers are up
two of their top Sack leaders are up

They walk into 2014 1m over the cap

The rest
Seattle Seahawks Free Agents - 2014

Re: Two teams One Defense

You won't see many dynasty teams anymore with the high QB pay and salary cap. Its all about everyone having a level playing field (well except the Jags and Browns). Its a bit like communism without the cool beards.

Re: Two teams One Defense

I was thinking the same. The Broncos O-Line looked eerily like the Saints. Chalk it up to that defense and call it a day.

Except competitive balance spreads good players, whereas communism and socialism would spread the bad ones.

And the Saints put those numbers up in Seattle, in the cold and blowing rain where Manning and company had near perfect football weather.

In my opinion the Saints need to focus on upgrading the O-line to buy Brees more time in the pocket. Then get some real speed to stretch the D-secondary and make use of that extra time.
