Power Rankings
If the defense shows any improvement, they could be a playoff team. You know Drew Brees and the offense will score.
They added some help to a defense that badly needed it in the draft, getting Sheldon Rankins in the first round. But they need a lot of young players to take the next step on that side of the ball to get back to being a playoff team.
Cap issues limited big spending in free agency, but Sean Payton got a new deal -- which is a smart thing. They have to try to fix the defense in the draft.
Sean Payton came back, which is a good thing for this team. Now they have to fix the defense.
Is Sean Payton gone? If so, who takes over? Does Drew Brees go with him?
Will the Falcons game be the last game of the Sean Payton-Drew Brees era in New Orleans?
Does it really matter who makes the defensive calls? The talent is the problem, more than the coordinator.
They showed some fight by going to Tampa and beating the Bucs. That's Drew Brees for you.
They competed against the Panthers, but that defense is awful. Hard to win with so many guys wide open every week.
This is a major flop. Will Sean Payton be somewhere else next year?
