Re: 5 Reasons Saints Will Make Playoffs

We should be 4-0 and then get Ingram back

Barring injuries, defense theoretically should be better, and we were already #10 in scoring defense (PA). Need to drastically improve on third down.

Our offense can score at will.

Our defense can give Drew the ball back.

Our Special Teams coaching assistant is coming back.

We are getting some good injured players back from IR.

Dome field advantage. We have the best fan base.

I just hoping its not a repeat of 2007 where the Saints were suppose to be improved on Defense from an average defense in 2006 and actually came out worse. The same defense looked historically bad the first 2 weeks.

Also the outlook of the division - Panthers are in ownership transition and I think will take a step back. Bucs often can't seem to get out of their own way. And the Falcons have a decent but highly overpaid QB and an unhappy Julio. If we can finally have an easy year in the division then the playoffs are a lock, gotta beat those teams down.
