a piece here and piece there and the saints can be in the mix. still 2017 is the key year to add playoff FA. So draft and cheap FA that can contribute is key in the 2016 off season

Re: For those saying the Saints are miles away from contending

Get rid of #39, and it is a completely different picture on defense. That guy was ROUTINELY giving up chunks of yards and first downs and extending opponents' drives, and giving up plays that resulted in the other team getting points. When people say "the Saints defense couldn't get off the field on third downs" I'd say probably 60-70% of that was Browner doing it all by himself. The Saints are still bad, and will continue to be "miles away" from contending until his locker is cleaned out and they get somebody else in there in his place. That is the start right there. But if it happens, when it finally happens, I think people will be pleasantly surprised by what a difference it makes in how the team performs.

Confused. Did we not draft an OT as our top pick last year? Why spend another pick when the defensive front 7 really needs help?

It isn't so much the distance between us and this place they call 'contending', because we can see it from where we're standing. It is the map to the place that's the mystery.

Exactly my thoughts. 2017 draft a QB. I see Brees going 2 more years MAYBE 3. Draft a highly rated QB in 2017 and let him sit for a year. By then we will know what we have with Grayson

We have Peat and Unger who will only get better. Armstead is going to be fine where he is. I agree about the OT point you have. I do think we try and find someone in the later rounds to add depth. For all of the offenses faults they have protected Brees better than they have the past few years for the most part. They def need help in run support though.
