NFC South Q&A: Has the window closed for Drew Brees and Sean Payton?

Today's question: Expectations for the New Orleans Saints havenít been this low coming into the season since Sean Payton and Drew Brees first arrived in 2006. After back-to-back 7-9 seasons, the Saints ranked 27th in ESPNís most recent Power Rankings. And Vegas is betting theyíll plummet even further. New Orleansí over-under win total is 6.5, according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook -- the fourth lowest in the NFL and the lowest in the NFC South. But what about the teams who know the Saints best? I asked ESPN NFC South reporters Vaughn McClure, David Newton and Jenna Laine if they think the window has closed on the Payton-Brees era.

Drew and the offense are still putting up mind blowing stats and it is all the Drew Payton show.

Till we are talking an offense that is bottoming out it aint over

Closing for Brees, he only has 2 or 3 years left.

I'd imagine Payton and our saints have probably 8 to 10 left, depending on how Sean feels

When a window closes a door opens some where.

There were several question marks from his list. But we haven't put pads on yet and we won't really know what we've got on either the offensive or defensive lines until training camp.

I'm sure the same folks had us pegged as contenders and SB winners in '09 after the '07 and'08 seasons /sarcasm.

I just looked up two different Vegas win total predictions from 2009... Both had us at 8.5 so flying under the radar like this is where we thrive.
