Top 5 roster or not, we're a top 5 team.
I agree we are a top 5 team with out coach. But that's not what the article was about. It's about roster. Without Payton, and us relying in just our talent, we are a 7-9 team.
And I'm not sure we had much better rosters than the colts did. Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Addai/James on offense. Sanders, Freeney, Mathis on D.
Roster wise I'm not sure we are even top 10. Brees, Graham, Colston, Sproles, and our guards on O. I'm not sure that many of our defensive players would even be starting on other teams except Lofton, Will Smith, and maybe Cam Jordan, Jenkins, Greer, and Vilma.
We aren't that talented of a team. We win with our QB and head coach. And in the NFL, those are the 2 spots that can win games. We play way above our talent level because of Brees and Payton. I hate them, but the Falcons are a more talented team than we are in terms of individual players. Except at the QB and head coach position. And that's why we beat them. We play above their talent because of 2 people. Brees and Payton.
