On paper, the Saints trailed the two teams ahead of them in the NFC South standings as of Monday by one win.

However, unless they vastly improve the way they’ve played in losing three of their first four games this season, the Saints know the distance between them and Atlanta and Carolina (both 2-2) will only grow as their season progresses.

Coach Sean Payton said:
“If we continue to play the way we’re playing, then results will be back and forth, and we’ll be sitting here with a 7-9 (or) an 8-8 record” to most likely miss the postseason, Saints coach Sean Payton said. “There has to be a sense of urgency to clean up these mistakes we’re discussing, improve in some of these areas, and all that other stuff will take care of itself. It’s all out there.”
Junior Galette said:
“You have to be realistic and know that we’re not as good as we thought we were,” Galette said about a team many assumed would be able to repeat the performance that in 2013 enabled it to field the fourth-stingiest defense in the NFL.

He added that the season is not over and that the team had not abandoned its belief that “the sky is the limit.”

But for now, Galette said, “We’re not looking at other teams. We’re looking at ourselves.”

As soon as I read "on Paper" I stopped reading.

You can have the best roster on the planet - "on paper" it doesn't win you a Super Bowl.

Re: Saints know they must get better fast

Sounds like they are in denial. Do they really think if they do not improve immediately they can be 7-9 or 8-8?

Re: Saints know they must get better fast

If they tighten up and win a few of the games we thought could go either way mid season, we'll still finish where we thought we would be.

The defense needs to be shocked back to life though, tightening up just does not do what needs to happen there justice.
