I agree. So far I have seen very little drop off on D and special teams.

I want to feel good about Robinson but even though he's played over 40 games with the Saints I still don't get a sense of confidence. "Playing well last year" was all of two games... He did good things vs Indy. Also some lapse in coverage. Bailey gives me zero confidence. Of all three, Corey White has me the least worried - especially with Byrd and Vaccaro roaming the top.

Not without it's issues. Brees was sacked 37 times last year. This year; two new faces - one young and one old. I like what I've seen from the run game so far. Pass blocking looked good vs Indy when Brees was in.

Stills - potential year long quad problem
Meachem - tends to disappear for long stretches
Morgan - somewhat unproven, hampered by injury
Cooks - tons of ability and upside, still a rookie (and small) The 2013 Kenny Stills disproves that argument but you get what I'm saying.

Without a doubt.

And look, I'm not being a downer - I think this team is built better than last season, I'm just concerned about a handful of "potential" issues outside of injury

Like the article states even the floor is a winning season. However 9-7 will not get us in to the playoffs.

This is key!

Robinson and Bailey looked great. Luck could only throw on our LBs, and Luck is a good QB. Bailey got 20 snaps against the 1s and had no targets against him; that's a good thing.

That has been my prediction all along. Us and you in NFC championship. I have to stick to my pick but that being said.. I saw us with 5 losses but 3 of those were going to be in the vaunted NFC West. I am not sure that is the case anymore. The Niners look horrible. Something is wrong with that team. Ahmad Brooks isn't practicing because he is fat... FAT!! He is a veteran leader and he shows up fat??? Arizona has lost Dansby, Dockett and Washington and The Rams have lost Bradford. Your division looks tougher than ours right now to be honest. We might just get home field because our division is getting significantly weaker.

^^To me, this is the big worry. We do not play well in Seattle -- no one does.

But, what the hell, it's a long season, anything could happen.

Seattle is already playing tough and credit them if they stay healthy.
