Yes...due to poor o-line play in the preseason, I recently predicted that Brees would get hurt and we'd therefore go 3-13 or 4-12. I think Brees has a chance of remaining healthy if the o-line can remain healthy and we can generate a consistent running game. If Brees remains healthy and we get a running game/more ball control offense than I think we go 7-9 or 8-8.
I'm sticking to my original 6-10 prediction. We will probably gut out some division wins and beat up on some bad teams but the good teams (Panthers, Broncos, Cheifs, etc....) are going to skull **** us.
Take away the long run and the PI in the 4th quarter, I think we're a bit better on D than last year. The analysts calling the game on TV thought our D was good in the first half. So, I'm staying positive that we're somewhat improved and could be win 8 games.
