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.
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.

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

Re: Playoff contenders

Drew was the 9th least to be sacked last year... He was sacked 32 times.

Using that logic; there are 23 worse O-Lines...

Exactly. But you are saying the team with what should be a much improved defense, better starting WR corps, a healthy Ingram and Spiller with the same O-line should lose one to three more games than each of the last two years. That is exactly what you are saying. That makes no sense whatsoever.

Don't waste facts on someone that refuses to take them into consideration. And, to be exact, Drew was sacked 31 times. McCown was sacked the other time for the 32 total.
