How about getting back that Legendary Home Dome Advantage we once had by winning all Home Games?!?

Keep the opposing teams under twenty to prove anything is different!

same goal as every year.
Win the division.
Sweep the division.
Control your own destiny.

Sweep the division - there are the 3 key road wins

Indeed... perfect home record and split the road games at worst...

If we do that, and still go 3-3 in division(because if we go 5-1 we would sweep Carolina which I'm wondering if can happen). So we lose all three games out of division? If we win 8 home games and one road game, that's 9 wins and still may not be enough. The team to watch out for is Chicago, you just don't know with them but if they beat Tennessee or Indy they could go 3-1 against the afc south, 2-2 against the nfc east(cowboys or bears and eagles), beat SF and TB and they would have to not sweep anyone in division to go 9-7. I don't think they are getting swept by anyone. Maybe GB. I think they will sweep Detroit. They have a schedule like that to throw people off guard with Kevin White.

If Chicago goes 10-6 a good year could keep us out of playoffs which is why those road games are important especially against SF and SD. KC wasn't all that great at home last year either barely beating Cleveland, scoring 10 points at home against SD, and winning a shootout with Buffalo. It was on the road where they were dominant.

Re: Win three games on the road next year to prove things are different

What really needs to happen is a strong showing and winning games right out of the gate. The years that the Sean Payton Saints have historically done REALLY well, are all years where they come out strong and win a bunch of games, get the divisional lead, and then keep on going. The years when they slip up, drop games, and where they have to battle back, or when they're outside looking in, when they need help, or the seasons when they hit a slump and then have to keep clawing and fighting to find their way back into the mix, week after week....Those years NEVER turn out well for the Saints. It's a clear pattern in every single Sean Payton/Drew Brees season.

2006, 2009, 2011, for three obvious examples -- all those years were pretty darn good, and in all of them the team was a juggernaut, rolling off an impressive string of wins to run the table starting early in the season. Other years where the team falters, slips up, or where they have to kick and claw their way back into the hunt late in the year -- going win one, lose one, win one, lose one, all year long -- those years don't seem to EVER end up being nearly as good for Sean Payton teams. For whatever reason, they're just not built for that. They need strings of wins in a row, not a win one, lose one, win one, lose one type season....
