Team overview: MAN. 2012 was something else for the Saints, huh? I don't have the energy to recap the entirety of the bounty scandal (and do you have the energy and/or desire to read it again?) but suffice to say, the Saints are probably thrilled to turn the page on one of the more scrutinized seasons in NFL history.

They're now on their third defensive coordinator in three years, with Rob Ryan replacing Steve Spagnuolo, and in desperate need of improving a unit that was historically bad in 2012. The Saints stinking on defense isn't something new, though -- even in their Super Bowl-winning season the defense wasn't great as much as it simply created turnovers. Ryan's aggressive attack should be an improvement over Spags 4-3 alignment.

The offense was prolific in 2012 but not as efficient as in years past; the return of Sean Payton, who signed a multiyear deal this offseason, to the sidelines should help out immensely -- provided he's not forced to use binoculars anyway.
