We are the barometer for everyone else.

We have no regular season barometer games.

Top five games has to include our first game as a litmus test.

I see this as a relatively "easy" schedule by last year standards.

Detroit does concern me......that could be the trap game. And their defense may actually match up well against our offense. Its the run first offenses that kill them actually when they are balanced. You have to run down the clock against this team. If we get them early then we might get them at the wrong time. Cleveland should have been listed as a barometer team considering their defense.

Re: Top 5: New Orleans Saints ‘barometer games’ in 2014

only six games rank a top the board each and every year

NFC South Crown

Tampa Atlanta Carolina all must wins.

we all know how hard it is to go 3-0 on the road in our division

pull a 6-0 record in the south means your hot and primed for the big show

After that it is division powerhouses or the surprising up start team

Pathers games shouldn't be close unless they let Kleuchy hang all over our receivers. Sweep

Don't we play Seattle next year too? Anyway, we win 3 of those 5 and I'd say we'll do just fine.

Every team scares me. We can lose any one of the 16 games we play. Every year there are one or two teams that nobody thinks will do crap do well. It's way to early to rate any team outside our division as a barometer.

Every year the Saints seem to drop one or two games to teams they have no business losing to.

If the Saints defend the Dome and beat the teams they're supposed to beat. They'll probably win the #1 seed.
