New Orleans Saints projected to go 5-11 by Pro Football Focus

The New Orleans Saints are projected by Pro Football Focus to have their poorest season since before the team hired Sean Payton and signed Drew Brees.

The 5-11 mark projected by the scouting and analytics site would be worse than the 7-9 marks the Saints have tallied in three of the last four seasons.

Re: New Orleans Saints projected to go 5-11 by Pro Football Focus

Let me start by throwing the BS flag. .00009% chance of this happening. Now, if the .00009% chance happens, Drew will be shown the door. No way we pay a QB 20+ million a year to win 5 games. We would go into the Draft with GG as out qb and draft the beast LF7. Saints once again become a dominant running team as LF7 goes for 2K yards.

Re: New Orleans Saints projected to go 5-11 by Pro Football Focus

We went 7-9 with poor coaching and 7 rookies playing significant time on defense.
We upgraded every weakness, hired better coaches and had a very good draft.

Anything can happen but I'd be surprised by 5-11. Major injuries would be the only way I see that happening, but that can happen to any team so that shouldn't be baked into their predictions.

I think our floor is 8-8 with an 11-5 ceiling.

Re: New Orleans Saints projected to go 5-11 by Pro Football Focus

Their reasoning...

A 37-year-old Brees is "bound to decline eventually."
Their linebackers have graded poorly.


Uhh, OK. I think we've upgraded every unit on defense.

D-Line - Much Better
ILB - Better but more importantly smarter.
OLB's - Lots of ascending young talent
CB's - Better
Safeties - Same or better with a healthy Byrd and a hot shot Vonn Bell added to the mix.

We lost 9 games, several of them in the last few seconds of the game due to defensive failures (Browner???), mostly communication breakdowns. I just can't see this team getting worse with all of the off-season additions. We'll play smarter and faster.

BlackandGold.com would probably melt down going through a 5-11 season...

They'd probably blame Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins.

AT the Worst we're 9-7. No way we got 7-9 for a third straight year and 5-11 is just preposterous!! Drew along is worth 6 games.

That would be a good reason to sign Harper again!

"bound to decline eventually" is true.

But I don't think it's gonna happen this season.
