They have a great QB but not alot of targets. They have a great running game with Verenn, Blount, and Ridley. I don't think they have one of the better defenses at all. So, is a loaded offense like Denver's the way to go? A loaded offense with a decent defense? What about teams like Seattle and San Fran? Neither have great QBs. Lynch and Gore are good RBs but Seattle isn't loaded with WR talent. San Fran is better with Boldin, Davis, and Crabtree. Both have really good defenses. Hard to say what the best combination is. All four of this year's teams have legit chances at winning the Super Bowl.
Well , I don't want to keep bringing up when the saints won the Super Bowl lol but what was the winning combination that saints team had when they won the Super Bowl ? I really don't think they were that much better than what they are now but I do think it was sheer determination that won that Super Bowl . They wanted it ...

Winning it 1 year doesn't make a winning combination IMO. You have to look at the teams that get to the league championship round year after year.

Exactly. Look at San Francisco. They've been to the NFC Championship 3 years in a row now. What has stayed the same? The defense, for the most part. Stellar defensive play, and a great run game. They went with 2 different QBs, so its not completely on the QB there. Baltimore has gotten better on offense, but most of their playoff runs have been on the defense.

You can score all the points you want, but when someone finally plays defense and stops you, you better be able to stop them. Sure, you have to put up points to win games, but you gotta be able to play defense.

Just my .02
I personally think the saints have everything in place to make a solid run at a superbowl for the next few years. Yeah brees is getting older but still has it. Our receiver core is as talented or better than 90% of the teams. As long as the ball gets spread around we do good. when brees starts to try to force feed the ball to graham when he is covered we struggle.
The defense is young and had a great year. If you look at alot of the games, they were keeping teams around 20 pts per game. They shut down philly until lewis went out with concussion. In seattle if you take away the ingram fumble and a short field they only give up 16 pts
As far as playing on the road, i think we do pretty good. Not explosive like at the dome, but good. I think the new england and carolina game was lost by poor coaching. When everyone in the country knows you are running the ball to milk the clock, put ball in brees hands and try for first down to ice it.
I know it sucks to lose but lets not forget we went 12-6 for the year and lost in second round of playoffs in the cold and rain at the toughest stadium in the league. I'll take that.
Who dat-bring on next season

The Saints need a legit, stud RB. Their running game is not very good. They were 25th in the league this year. When the defense knows you can't run, they are going to pressure the passing game.

It's b/c it picked up, then went down,
then we unleashed this two headed monster Ingram/Robinson.

Even with our loss, the Saints have the most Rushing Yards
this Post Season.

Look for that to change next year.
We'll be in the Top 10 Rushing yards.

Sean P has seen the value of FINISHING a game with the RUN,
5 MINUTES OUT with the other team having 2 Timeouts and the 2 Minute warning. Yet they just sat there and watched until the game was over for 5 agonizing minutes, more like 20 with commericals and the like lol

NO WAY Sean P doesn't learn from that and expound on it.

Well, that can be misleading. They played an extra game compared to the #1 and #2 seeds. New England lite it up. Lynch ran wild too.

Not comparing to the Top Seeds.
NO
San Fran
San Diego

The top 3 teams on the list are all the lower seeds,
and NO is the #1 of the top 3.

We've tie with the Niners in rushing yards.

That's part of the problem....they need to be compared to the top seeds. They need to be a top seed. Being so low during the regular season is one reason they were a #6 seed.
