What happened to the Saints? This team has been near the top of the league for many years, so we aren't used to seeing these guys with a mediocre record like 7-9. The Saints need to shake it off and get back to doing work and kicking tail.
New Orleans Saints
2012 Record: 7-9
- - With 5,177 yards and 43 TDs, QB Drew Brees is still one of the best in the league
- - The trio of TE Jimmy Graham and WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore were responsible for 25 TDs and over 3,000 yards receiving
- - Head Coach Sean Payton is back!
- - The defense was terrible: 31st passing & 32nd rushing
- - They lost 4 of their last 6 games
- - RB Mark Ingram led the team in rushing with just 602 yards on 3.9 per carry. Not exactly the numbers the Saints expected when making him a first round pick in 2010.
- - Draft Position #15: DT Barkevious Mingo or DE Bjoern Werner
- - Free Agent Targets: CB Nnamdi Asomugha, DL Richard Seymour and LB Karlos Dansby
- - Trade: RB Pierre Thomas––we love Thomas, but there are just too many cooks in this kitchen. They should trade him for a draft pick and give more time to up-and-coming RB Chris ivory.
