I think the Saints can win 10 games and get a wildcard spot. Barring any injuries to key players, I think that is reasonable.
The NFC South will come down to New Orleans and Atlanta. Carolina has a good offense but their defense is not good enough for them to win 8 games or more as this piece suggets. They have a very talented back field in Williams and Stewart plus they added Mike Tolbert. Besides drafting Luke Kuechly, they didn't do anthing to make their defense better IMO. Plus their LB's never seem to stay healthy.
