I agree completely. That's all I have ever said. How much it factors depends upon the players affected. Some can be overcome while others, like with the Rams, can be crippling.

"Their" injuries factor into the equation of them winning against us - twice.
"Our" injuries factor into the equation of us losing to them - twice.

Re: Official 2023 OFFSEASON Thread

I was thinking this very thing earlier today. What if either Payton decided he wanted to return to Fox or if the Saints tried to be hard asses and wouldn't trade his rights to a certain team forcing him back to Fox? Anything can happen between now and next year. Payton could decide he wants to just stay at Fox for good or, God forbid, something happened to Payton where he could no longer pursue coaching. The Saints would be left with absolutely nothing.

That brings it all back around to getting something is better than getting nothing.

Which positions? Depending on matchups, it matters.

Re: Official 2023 OFFSEASON Thread

Our starters missed over 80 games this year. We set the record for the most players starting last year. Looking at this pattern something needs to be addressed. Obviously, none of us know how to do it but let's hope that the front office can finally figure that one out.

More often than not injuries are not preventable. Sometimes it's just plain dumb luck.

I think they need to pick up that option on Ruiz. He's been our most durable lineman and has really come into his own with his play, as well.
