Re: Improved D says Bobby and Deuce

One thing I learned last year...

Preseason matters. Too often we write off preseason games thinking they are just warm ups, but for the last three seasons they have been almost exact reflections of the team's performance for the regular season. Ill be watching very closely this year.

Very good point!

Our backups blew a 21 point lead vs New England in preseason, we still had a chance to win the game at the end and we let them march down the field for the win.

I believe the stat was 4-5 games last year were decided by 5 points or less.

Re: Improved D says Bobby and Deuce

I thought we played better D the 1st two pre-season games than we did all year. I was fired up. After that is when it all got ugly. Now that Payton stacked the deck for Allen it's going be interesting to see how things go.

Hey, let's just all agree that we're having a great camp, and that we're going to win the Superbowl this year. Nothing wrong w that!!

I don't put much stock in it except for effort. We were 3-1 in both 2014 and 2013. Both seasons had distinctly different results.

Now I will say this- not being able to get lined up in preseason is an issue, so from those things you're right

The Patriots are effectively 2-2 every year in preseason

Improved defense sounds fabulous from any vantage point.

That was probably just inexperience. Also a couple of those calls prevented a td.

I like what I'm hearing but it just seems too good to be true. Keep in mind it's Deuce, Bobby, and the rest of the media that is in camps job to hype us up for the season. They help the organization sell tickets and everything else, so their is a ton of bias. Also keep in mind that they are also Saints fans in addition to former players. I would like to read more reports from outside sources who have visited several camps.

I am pretty sure Hebert said we would be lucky to win 6 games last year. I remember someone posted that on here so I am not sure that is 100% true
