Re: Saints predicted to win division

Well, that's bold.
-Carolina won more games last year than we did the prev two combined
-despite our poor record, we do not have an easy schedule
-our defense has more question marks than The Riddler's costume
-Carolina has beaten us 4 of 5, and is 9-3 in the division over two years

We'll see

Preseason is a pretty good test with the Texans and their D and Pittsburg to. The O-line will get a good test and we'll get to see how our D looks.

We'll see
But it should also be pointed out that Carolina went from 7-8 to 15-1 in a single season with basically the same team

I think we are quite capable of a similar turnaround.

Carolina lost a lot more talent than they added.

We added a lot more talent than we lost, and most of our returning players are only in their 2nd or 3rd seasons.

On paper we closed the gap, or may have even surpassed Carolina. Yeah, I know its just on paper so put a sock in it. We ALL know its only on paper right now.

Let's see what these new coaches can teach the boys and see how big an improvement we make on defense.

Exactly my thoughts. They were ready to run Rivera out on a rail just two years ago.

can't argue with any of these points, And Car has tough schedule too

I just don't think we've improved by 4 and they have dropped by 4 games.
Hopefully the two head-to-heads will be the deciding factor
