Still, the Saints do have the talent on both sides of the ball, and the sidelines, to be one of the favorites going into the season.
The is far less of a question at center as there was last year. De la Peunta was a liability. He was far too undersized. Goodwin has proven himself and will be fine. If Lelito beats him out then that means Lelito is even better. I am not concerned about center at all.

I like our chances though! Before the season starts since it is basically a level playing field as far as injuries go I think we are ahead of most!

We have even been getting a lot of respect nationally. Every team on our schedule is not looking forward to playing us that is for sure.
Can you provide links to what other teams are saying about the saint?

I think that is debatable. When you get a chance compare his coaching stats to SP. You will find that SP is on track to pass him in most stats. The only thing that is missing is a few more superbowls, and some NFC championships. It's actually quite impressive when you look at it. Any team would kill to have SP as there coach right now. He is running a hot hand and all of the other coaches know that. That is the reason why they are going to prep extra hard for the saints this year. Watch, some teams that won't be expected to do much against them will actually come pretty close, if not not succeed in defeating them. Let's hope the saints don't get big heads this year.

If we don't get the big head I think we have an excellent chance to grab the Lombardi

Well i have to agree with pretty much with you all. All you guys (and gals) have said some good and valid points. For me its all about injuries, the kicking game and sometimes luck. Sometimes you need the ball just to bounce your way!
