Just How Good Is Drew Brees?

You believe what you want to believe but Brees almost lost to the vikings in that NFC Championship game. Even in a winning season, without HFA it is not easy to go to a SB. You are optimistic but there is no way the saints beat 12-4 Seattle in Seattle in 2014 with bad center play and the way the offense got pushed around three of the last four home games that season. If somehow we won that division by beating SF or Atlanta in the games we should have won, we were in for trouble in Seattle that January. 2015, we had to deal with a likely 14-1 Carolina and a 13-3 Arizona. Even if we won we are still going there if we got by Carolina in January. Maybe last year with a top 20 defense we would have won, but those two years we would have had to win in Seattle, Carolina, and Arizona in January. The team needs to be complete to win a SB. Top three offense, top five oline, and top 20 defense.

Don't be hatin' on Special Teams. 3 game winning field goals not only blocked last year, but returned for TDs. And, Lutz is still kicking low.

The Oline was ranked 11th in 2014 and 3rd in 2015. Your argument is invalid.
