Saints Have The Offense To Do It


I'll say the Saints. I love their offense with Jeremy Shockey added to it. I think they should do what the Patriots did last season and simply forget about the running game. Come out and throw the ball 30 times in the first half and make defenses adjust to them, and then run the ball a little bit in the second half. I am a little bit wary of their defense, but they will be able to simply outscore some people. It's a quarterbacking league and I think Drew Brees will have a big, big season.

I like everything you are saying but in the end...these are the Saints.

I'd have to agree with Charlie above. People forget just how lucky/inspired Sean Payton was in year one coaching the Saints. How many games did they win just because he took a gamble that paid off for them, or a lucky bounce rolled their way? They were a magical 10-6 in 2006, only to revert back to 7-9 last year. Like with any prediction related to Arizona making the playoffs, I'll believe it when I see it.
