Re: What do you really think?

Above average, well on the way to being excellent. And the schedule next year is actually quite favorable, in my view.

The Payton-era Saints historically tend to do well when they get off to a strong start, early in the season -- foot on the gas, pedal to the floor, a strong showing in the early games and a lot of momentum and swagger. The years where the Saints sorta limp along, losing a game here, winning one there, losing the next, winning the next -- those years never end up well for them. They pretty much have to get a head of steam going early if they're going to make it anywhere or make any big noise. There are no gimmes in the NFL, but this particular schedule has a bunch of the 'easier' games lodged in the early part of the schedule, meaning the Saints could easily get off to a 7-1, 8-2 type of start, which bodes VERY well for them down the stretch in the playoff hunt.

Staying somewhat healthy is key here.

Edit: We aren't that far off fellas. Make another play or two vs Vikes... we are playing Philly for a trip to the SB.

Keep grinding.
My wife told me that once!

Keep grinding.

Some people take grinding to a different level.

Do we or don't we have a pass rush? That is the question.

I like our chances this coming season, the O-Line needs to block and keep Drew healthy.
The rest will fall into place.
