We've never had 4 consecutive winning seasons. Never made it to the post season 4 years in a row. This season was written before it started.

Does it really matter? Even if the defense gets its act together, this dink and dunk crap won’t work in the playoffs just like the last two years
So you'd rather go 7-9 in the regular season and breath a huge sigh of relief that you won't be embarrassed about our performance in the playoffs?

Well no.

It's a pretty simple math calculation.

10-6 will make the playoffs.

Lose next week and we are 1-3.

Until we lose 7, we are OK.

The season is not lost. However without marked improvements then making the playoffs would be anticlimactic.
Team is a wreck defensively. 200 plus penality yds real or imagined equals points. If I were any team playing us I'd never punt and put in 5 WRs because someone is gonna get called for defensive holding...

The season's on the line every game, even every practice. It's the nature of the game. The teams are so close and the games so quirky that a couple of 3 game losing streaks are always possible.

you will know what you have in your first 4 games.

You are never as good ( or bad ) as your first game and never as good ( or bad ) as your second. Games 3 and 4 is when teams round into form.

Normally. ( with 4 game preseason )

But historically, for the Saints, the first 4 games will tell you everything you need to know.

so far, in the first 3, we will have to bite, kick and scratch our way to 8-8.

Add the officiating, and you can probably take a game or 2 off the W column there.
