Because they can't possibly get any worse?

I'm glad they have gone out and specifically tried to upgrade the front 7, particular interior D line and outside linebacker

4 new players I'm excited to see this season

Vonn Bell
Sheldon Rankins
Nick Fairley
Craig Robertson

Just need to wait for preseason to see how the injury report shakes out.

Browner being gone should count for at least 1 maybe 2 more wins alone

Re: 5 Reasons Why Saints Defense Will Be Better in 2016

I think it's really pretty simple, can this group create turnovers or not. Historically, Sean Payton's defenses is usually some version of a bend but don't break trying to set up for the big turnover. If this group of guys can stop opposing offenses a few times per game, then we may be looking at 9 to 10 wins and a possible playoff spot. If this group of guys can create turnovers then we are looking at completing for a division title and maybe a first round bye.
