In addition to TB, the Saints held the three best offenses they saw all year (KC, Minnesota and GB) below their season yardage average. The DBs played great against KC and played outstanding football after the first few games.

We are not going to lose much off our roster. That’s been debunked quite a few times.

And it matters a lot that we won games without Brees. It shows how good this roster is around whoever is playing QB. We will be fine. I’d say 11 wins is a good goal to start, then see what happens in the postseason.

Could be my recollection. I was referring to GB and DET, just to name a few. SD/CAR were lucky wins. From my eye test, If there was no pressure on the QB -which often this year has been Trey H. It seemed everytime the ball got in the air the receivers were left running wide open.

I'm not understanding how it shows how good our roster is, if TH faced trashed teams and went 3-1. I'm saying being 8-1 without Brees does not mean we win 11+ games a season W/O him. CARO's offense is no worse than what he had in NO and he flicks INTs in 4th QTs.

TH was barely pressured in the games played and still managed to fumble. He holds the ball too long and is often slow in making decisions. If we get far behind in games, (right now) I don't trust that Hill or Winston are the type of QBs who can rally the troops back to victory or come close.

They are pretty fresh to the game, so I'll give it time.

I was a Saints fan long before Drew Brees jumped on board. I will continue to be so.

I’ll be a Saints fan through the boo bird “fans” announcing their departure over kneeling, through the people leaving over conspiracies, through the bad calls, through the sheetestorm. During 1-15 seasons and 15-1 years. There’s something about loving that hometown team that keeps you engaged.

Fans don’t become less of fans because life happens. They weren’t true fans to begin with.

If you are on this forum in mid February...you are probably more than just a bandwagon Saints fan.

I still care about the Saints. But are my expectation as high? Of course not. Part of it has to do with Brees...but most of it really doesn't. Even if Brees returns in 2021, my expectations for this team would be lower. Heck...I think that there's an argument that maybe the Saints are better without Brees in 2021. It's just hard for me to take this franchise seriously as a championship contender after the way that the past few seasons have unfolded. Will I be following this team as intently as I have the past few seasons? Probably not.
I think with no Brees I'll still care about the team the same however that sense of urgency like we HAVE to win now, isn't going to be there for me like it has the last 3 years. If we lose it's going to be oh well that's to bad not OH MY GOD IT'S ALL OVER!!! :hihi:
