Barring injury I say the Saints win at least 12 games and I would not be surprised if they finished 12-4/14-2.

Re: NFL.com - Saints win 9-12 games

Defensive weakness - pass coverage by LBs

Defensive worry - #2 starting CB

Offensive weakness - maybe the O line???

Offensive worry - #3 WR

Expect a much-improved coverage unit on ST this year.

Agree.

I don't think so. I'd qualify it if you said "Injury to #2 CB." Robinson was playing well last year when he got hurt. Bailey is unknown because he's been hurt. And White did fill in pretty well. It's injury I'd worry about, not talent.

Offensive weakness - maybe the O line???
Nope. Barring injury the line is solid.

Offensive worry - #3 WR
I cannot see it, again barring injury. The #3 receiver is one of Cooks, Stills, or Morgan. All I see is speed, speed, and superspeed. I could even live with Meachem in that slot if we came down to it. Toon... well I'm not sold yet.

If our best 16-17 offensive players remain healthy, there is nothing on offense to worry about. And I really mean that.

We can only hope.

My prediction the last couple of years has been 13-3. This is the year that it works for me. 13-3

Of course the floor will only be realized with an injury to a certain father of four.

If he plays the year the floor is 10 and a wildcard.

The ceiling is 14-2 or maybe even 15-1 with some defensive or ST touchdowns...

Re: NFL.com - Saints win 9-12 games

If we run a balanced O, 13-3. If we abandon the run as soon as we get behind 10-6 maybe 11-5 depending on the kicker.

Re: NFL.com - Saints win 9-12 games

Barring key or excessive injuries (not easy to do), I can see 13 wins.

Even with excessive injuries, as long as one of them isn't Brees I see a minimum of 9. And thats if we get absolutely hammered with injuries.
