Until Snead comes back. Until Breaux comes back. Until Armstead comes back.

Look, it's been bad. Very bad. But this team has the ability to put it all together.

All the change this offseason will take time to settle in. Our first division game is Sunday, the next not until Nov 5th.

I was thinking the "unthinkable" would be a 10-4 tear through the season and win the division by a 1/2 game.

How's Dat sound?

Re: What if the unthinkable happens ...

The Saints don't even have a coherent philosophy to the defense. Constantly exposed on the back end, WR's running WIDE OPEN underneath, mental break downs in assignments etc. Inexcusable at this level. Devante' Harris should be cut. Kenny is undisciplined in his approach.

There is no way a defense should perform like this after a full pre season and training camp. If this games goes south (I hope it doesn't) in Carolina, you really have to consider promoting Nolan as our DC.

At the end of the day, all of this circles back to the front office and Sean Payton.
neugey, SmashMouth and Rell&Gold like this.

I think the inexperience is really showing, and there aren't the leaders/teachers to make up for it.

A few turnovers would do wonders for the young guys' confidence, but yeah that's not going as well as I'd hoped

Sorry..we get a top pick, we need a game changer on defense. We have not had one in FOREVER (I say forever because I can't remember if we ever actually had one) and it is clear, if we don't get a top 5 pick, we will NEVER get one.

Cam would be one if he had just a Little help from the rest of the DL.
Its quite easy for an OL to eliminate one great DL player. But a DL that has two...
I still hope Rankins will develope because that would help tremendously.

Re: What if the unthinkable happens ...

Tank the season and get the #1 pick in what is hyped as one of the best QB draft years?

I will go ballistics if that saints did not trade out of the #1 spot.

We already have a laundry list of team needs

Trade back a few spots to get some teams entire draft and we would still get an excellent QB.

Buffalo has 8 and 9 Cleveland has 5 and 6. We could gain another 1st rounder and 2 second rounders from both teams in a trade down from 1. Both need QB's. Rosen, Darnold and maybe even Jackson will go before pick 5.

I'm calling it now. The Saints will not win more than 6 games. I'm personally thinking 5-11.
