I have Sunday Ticket and not only did I see every snap of every Saints game I saw on average eight to nine other games, at least, with NFL play backs included and most teams gave up more sacks than the Saints. Facts are fact and you are ignoring them in favor of unfounded negativity.

Using that logic; there are 23 worse O-Lines...
Hurries, lack of blocking for Rb's and they put Drew out with a arm injury. Drew avoided a TON of sacks most would have not. ould you imagine Big Ben with our o-line? With how long he holds the ball he would of been sacked 60 times.

Well that depends; whose offense would he be running? Because I believe he drops back further than Drew does... I mean we can play the "what if" game all day.

So you have faith in our o-line? You believe we have a top 10 o-line????? If so, you are the only one.

I never said anything of the sort; but I'm not going to make assumptions off of last year. And I will hold judgement until I see them in actual action, where Payton is game-planning plays...

Assumptions are part of everday life with some fullfilling. Like, I assume Drew will be once again a top 5 qb. I assume MI will be injuried at some point. I assume our defense will not be a top 10 defense. Now, are those set in stone? No, but they are damn close.....

Re: Playoff contenders

Too many questions about the SAINTS . . Offensive and defensive lines . . . real time action to see we are even better than the last few years (Im praying we are) but I cant worry about any other teams right now . ..

I think we can all agree that we are thankful not to have Brandon Harris or Les Miles.....

Yep, but thats the point. Its pure speculation and we all know everything is on paper right now.

But based on what knowledge we have right now (additions, subtractions, strengths, weaknesses) we can reasonably predict that we're at least as good or better than most NFC teams right now.

It would be ridiculous to predict we'll be 16-0, and its equally ridiculous to predict we'll be 0-16.

If people have issues with speculating, they probably shouldn't open a speculation thread.

Its not a prediction if you wait until after the games are played.
