Re: Playoff contenders

[QUOTE=Danno;716326]I'm curious, I personally think we're as good as any team in the NFC not named Arizona, Carolina and Seattle.
Can anyone name 6 NFC teams that are obviously better than our Saints?[


Green Bay would be the only clear cut better team. Rams, Minn., Giants are on the same level if not a step ahead. Dallas, Dirty turds, Tampa and philly.....who the heck knows. All have the talent to win 10 games but the coaching of my 10 yr old sons tackle I team. Saints season will go as the o-line goes. Any decent play on the o-line that allows MI to run opens up the offense and allows Drew to throw for 5000+ again. I still see the Saints as a 4 to 6 win team. 2 great o-linemen can not make up for the other 3 trash.

As long as the Debbie Downers stop drinking the Kill-Aide.

So, what you are saying is that even with what is arguably a much improved defense and basically the same offensive line and an upgrade at WR with Thomas over a burnt out Colston, this team is one to three games worse than each of the past two years.

Impeccable logic. Pardon me if I don't buy into your vision.

I don't care what you buy. Defense looks better on paper. Until they play a game that counts it does not matter. Our o-line might be the worst in the league.

Exactly how many plays have you seen all five starters on the offensive line play a meaningful snap this season? For all of your possible knowledge they may be among the ten BEST lines in the league. You cannot know. All that you can prove is that you are a sour pessimist.

That's where the disconnect comes into play. He used no logic.

Same O-line as last year.

Guess you failed to watch a game last year because its the exact o-line that got Drew killed.
