Forecast: Saints suddenly looking like a contender in weak NFC | wwltv.comYou might not have noticed but the NFC, besides the Dallas Cowboys, is a hot mess of mediocrity. The 2016 NFC Champion is just as likely to be the 13-3 Dallas Cowboys as it is some random 9-7 team who gets hot for three weeks in January. Since the Saints started 0-3 and have fought back to 4-4, let’s take a quick tour around the NFC, disparage all the teams ahead of the Saints, and get maximum delusional enjoyment out of 4-4 while it's here.
We truly are slowly and quietly moving up with hardly anyone noticing. With Brees playing arguably as well as ever, the running game stepping up, and the defense looking at least halfway decent - we really have a shot at this thing.
Not every Super Bowl/deep playoff run year is going to look like 13-0 or 7-0 or 5-0.
