All NFC teams, two divisional opponents.

After last year, not one team looks like an easy win.

Yep, for me, if we are serious about 2015 we win all our divisional games. Need to make a statement in the earlier rounds and beat the Buccs, Panthers and Falcons (6th round). We do that and we start to put doubts into the minds of our divisional rivals and we are well on our way.

I think Payton himself will be on the hot seat if we have another losing season. I might go so far as to say he will be on the hot seat if we dont make the playoffs period.

I agree this season could put the focus on the Sean Payton era.

Only once has Sean Payton had a winning season without a top 13 defense (pts scored). And that was the 09 Superbowl Saints who's defense was 20th.

We all know how prolific the offense has been in years past. I think this year we hope for top 10 offense and top 15 defense.

Maybe this year instead of losing close games, we win them.

Re: Can Saints' Rob Ryan afford another down season?

Uhm I am not so sure Sean's Job will be on the line for another 3-5 years. Its not like we had many coaches win a SB nor are they around every corner we turn.

However, one thing I like about Sean is that he has no patience for someone who isn't getting the job done. Being that Ryan is out the door if that D doesn't do something this year.

Yet he keeps hiring people who don't get the job done.

You see any superstars... cause I dont... he had them fourth in the league...every great defense needs one or two exceptional players

Allen won't let Ryan get behind the eight ball.
