PFF: Saints have NFLís top offense

The New Orleans Saints have the NFLís best offensive roster, according to Pro Football Focus. The scouting service came up with a formula Insider based on grades for every individual offensive player (requires Insider access).

As usual, quarterback Drew Brees carried the Saints to victory, since the Saintsí quarterback situation ranked as the third best in the league. Tight end Jimmy Graham didn't hurt, either.

The Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots rounded out the top five.

Waiting for Madden to nail it down. They are fairly accurate in terms of what it has the potential to achieve. I think the Saints will be way up there in their system.

Re: PFF: Saints have NFLís top offense

You guys were in the top 5 last year and now you have added a running game too. i do find it odd as talented as Jimmy Graham is i the passing game, it's embarrassing to see a man of his size such a puss when it comes to blocking. I don't see how that is a stretch.

Mike Alstott wasn't a wuss and he couldn't block either. Lorenzo Neal couldn't run the ball. Strengths and weaknesses...

We basically need the individual parts to add up a little better than they did last year, but there really isn't a weakness on paper. Last year we had issues at left tackle and WR but those appear to be mostly fixed. I don't think any other team presents the complete package on offense the Saints do, based on depth and the ability to move the ball a bunch of different ways with a bunch of different players. But we'll see how it goes.

He's not a "puss," as you say. If you watch the way he runs with the ball after the catch he's a very physical and aggressive player. His blocking issues are technique, remember the kid had almost no football experience before the NFL. And the fact he had a crap foot for most of last season. In 2012 his blocking was actually good and even in 2013 his run blocking graded out better than roughly 1/2 the starting TE's in the league.
