What if cold hard truth is...that even when Payton comes back....The Saints are just a shitty football team? (By their standards)
You'll have no excuses if the Saints season goes 7-9 again...
Chances of that are pretty small. They may only win 10 games (as I think the Falcons will hover around as well) but they're not just going to fall off the map. I think people are really overlooking just how horrific the defensive fit was last year (we've since moved back to a more attacking scheme AND upgraded linebackers, cb, and hopefully safety from our middle of the road 09-11 Ds). Throw in no continuity on offense, no head coach holding anyone accountable, and a complete cluster frick from the top down and they were a late game collapse against KC from being 8-8. Sean Payton is a top 3 coach in the league. He will get it fixed. Anyone who disagrees is kidding themselves.
now go run along back to your bandwagon Heat fans
