Yeah, I feel like a homer even picking them here, you know with that historically bad defense and all and the fact that it seems like half of the guys brought in to improve that area are hurt. You'll know within two weeks, perhaps one, how much better they will be run under Sean Payton. Can he recapture the magic? Or did they lose it forever.
I figure the Saints have at least one more really good Super Bowl run in the Brees era, but, outside of Brees, Graham and Colston - someone, either a receiver, running back or defensive player needs to make a big statement. One of my favorite old sportscasters used to talk about 'difference makers.' The Saints need more of them. Perhaps they've found some in the offseason. (Photo by Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images)
