I just don't see this as a very good team. The fact that Brees played an outstanding game on Sunday and still lost goes to show how bad this defense really is. I know I will get posters that will say but we played well until breaux went out and that is true. Injuries once again have taken a toll on the back end but injuries or no injuries the backend will only be as good as the pass rush. Now some will say Brees can win this team some games and that is true but he can also lose the team some games. He is always due for one or two bad games. What happens when saints go against good defense? That automatically puts the pressure on our defense. Now some will say rankins will be back and so will breaux and that is true but rankins can only do so much eventually saints need good linebackers and defensive ends to finish the job. Breaux will be back but I'm not buying he will be back in six weeks and who knows what form he comes back in. Bottom line I'm as optimistic as they come but I just don't see it this year hopefully I'm wrong I would love for this team to prove it to me just do see it. Eventually saints need top end talent no band aids (players cut) or udfas to fill holes. I wasn't alive but as my dad eluded to the other day " it is the 1980 saints all over again" hopefully they prove me wrong.
