Finally back down South

I know it is just one game, but there were several seasons in a row where I would have been happy for our defense to be ranked in the top 20 after the first game.
We seemed to always struggle defensively in the first 2-3 games before putting it together. So, sure, just 1 game. But I'll take it considering how bad we could be in the first game of the season.

And finally get rid of all the under performing position coaches. I was a little worried about special teams after losing Hardee, but it seems we haven't missed him as much as I thought we would.
Who’s our new gunner that took Hardee’s place? I forgot to check when we punted that one time.

Really hated that we are down a few Coaches due to COVID. The silver lining to it all is...I rather the Saints deal with this issue early in the season vice later. For instance, a pivotal game for the NFC South Division, seeding placement for the playoffs, NFC Championship, or Superbowl. Hopefully, this is the only time we deal with this COVID issue during the season. Knock on wood, fingers crossed...
Exactly, better to get it now and have natural immunity later in the season when it matters.
