A good start crucial to Saints this season

When you look at Coach Payton’s success, patterns become apparent. For example, the first four games of the season have been the indicator about how good…or not…the Saints will be.

In 2007, 2008, and 2012 the Saints did not make the playoffs. Sure, there are many reasons why the Black & Gold stayed home after the regular season, but it was largely due to a poor start in each of those three seasons.

In 2007 the Saints started the season a dismal 0-4, 2-2 in 2008, and 0-4 in 2012. When the Saints have gone to the post season, those first four games have been wins - far more so than not.

In Payton’s first season, the Saints came out of the gate a surprising 3-1. In 2009 the Saints were 4-0. They were 3-1 in 2010 and 2011, and the Black & Gold went 4-0 through their first four games in 2013.

They might actually be able to this year with Flash Cooks opening up the underneath.

Re: A good start crucial to Saints this season

I agree. We need to start out as strong as possible because we have a rough stretch after the bye and we can easily wind up dropping a few. I am damn confident we wild start 4-0.

Re: A good start crucial to Saints this season

It's always good to start fast. It normally sucks to start 0-3 or worse.
