- Reaction score
There were a few games this season, I thought the Saints were a few players away from being really good. That assessment was wrong. This team is not close. They need multiple starters on both sides of the ball, particularly on the offensive and defensive lines. Add in the defensive secondary and linebackers and that doesn't even begin to address the need to build depth. If the Saints get it right on the vast majority of their pick ups in free agency and the draft (not likely given their history) we are looking at a minimum of two off seasons to get back in contention. Brees might be done before this team is ready to compete again.
