Re: So who do we want to win the south this year?

Well if saints end up starting off bad then season is in trouble. So who do we root for to take the division?

Here's TB's likely outcomes
@Atl-L
@Ari-L
LA-L
Den-W
@Car-L
@SF-?
Oak-L
Atl-W
Chi-L
@KC-L
Sea-L
@SD-?
NO-L
@Dal-L(unless Romo is healthy maybe Dak)
@NO-W(if we have problems)
Car-L

There are only two games on TB's schedule you can pencil for sure wins and there's two others that could go either way. Don't see them winning it.

Now Atlanta
TB-W
@Oak-L
@NO-L
Car-?
@Den-W
@Sea-L
SD-W
GB-L
@TB-L
@Phi-W
Ari-?
KC-L
@LA-L
SF-?
@Car-L
NO-?

Now there's four wins you can pencil in and four that could go either way. Two of them when it should be obvious what will be the outcome. I expect the games against Carolina and Arizona(and they have to win both) determines what happens those two. If they're 8 losses or more they won't beat SF. And if they lose to Carolina they will beat us(the 3-3, 1-5, 5-1 division pattern). Still 8-8 at best.

Now Carolina
@Den-W
SF-W
Min-?
@Atl-?
TB-W
@NO-?
Ari-W
@LA-?
KC-W
NO-W
@Oak-?
@Sea-L
SD-W
@Was-L
Atl-W
@TB-W

They are already at more than enough wins of those three without the toss-ups. Now add in those tossups and they could probably split 3-2 or 2-3 and that's 11-12 wins. I think they lose to LA but beat Oakland. Atlanta, Minnesota, and us are the harder ones.

Now us, assuming we play like the way we just did going in season
Oak-L
@NYG-L
Atl-W
@SD-W
Car-?
@KC-W(their offense is not that great, we'll steal one here)
Sea-L
@SF-?
Den-W
@Car-L
LA-W
Det-W
@TB-W
@Ari-L
TB-L
@Atl-?

That's 7 wins without the toss-ups. Do we lose all three games against Carolina, SF, and Atl? Either way we would need Carolina to lose more than 3 of their toss-ups to help us? If we get oline help before that game we could beat Seattle.

Odds are Carolina will win division again but we should be lucky we have some bad offenses on the schedule.

Not only do I want the Saints to win it, but I'm confident we will.

We were 7-9 with the worst defense on the planet last year. We improved talent at nearly every position.

Yes we're extremely young and inexperienced, but I think we'll put it together and fight a very tough battle for the NFCS championship.

Saints 10-6 with the tie-breaker over 10-6 Carolina. Atlanta and Tampa at 8-8.
