Also have to factor in projected improved play from the Falcons and Buccaneers, the Panthers are also coming off a good year and should be tough even with their roster losses. Overall, I do like the Saints chances in 2014 and believe they are better than 9.5 wins.

No those losses will hurt. By now we should know this and Carolina not only has that and bigger offenses than last year on the schedule, teams have also studied up on them, and seen a year of film on them. I see Carolina starting out 0-4 or 1-3, the tricky game being the lions which can go either way. Then they play Chicago, Cincinatti, Green Bay, Seattle, us, Philadelphia, Atlanta before the bye week. That is just going to be too much for them.

I think that is a fair assessment for now. I think by game 4 the odds will improve. I'm saying 11-5. I think we have the type of team that will outperform our regular season success in the playoffs.

The only way we lose the division is if honestly, a major injury occured, which I hope will not happen.

Yes Atlanta is coming back no question and I think they will make the playoffs but unlike 2010 and 2012 they do not have gimme road games. Cincinatti, Minnesota, New York, Baltimore, Green Bay I just do not see Atlanta winning more than two of those. Tbh, though, most teams seem to be really intimidated when playing them and tend to beat themselves. Their home games are challenging as well. For a team that went 4-12 they do not have the benefit of really playing a bad team.

I think our 9 wins probably come from projected losses to bucs once, falcons once, panthers once, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and probably losing two home games, they probably think we lose to SF and GB. Thats what I think.
