http://m.nfl.com/news/0ap1000000137115/

I know Team's change, but this schedule is really tough..

Niners
Rams
Cardinals
Seahawks (in Seattle.. Sad )
Bears
Cowboys
Pats
Bills
Dolphins
Jets
Falcons x2
Panthers x2
Bucs x2

I see us going 9-7 or 10-6 based off that schedule..

Niners W
Rams W
Cardinals W
Seahawks W
Bears W
Cowboys W
Pats W
Bills W
Dolphins W
Jets W
Falcons x2 1/1
Panthers x2 W
Bucs x2 1/1

14/2 mark it, If the Saints defense if C average at best. The offense can put up points. and the teams the Saints are facing are not offense power houses, except the Falcons.

Outside the Falcons, 49ers and Bucs, I don't see much to loose sleep over

Now if it was the packers,texans,giants,broncos I could see losing more than 6 games.

I mean 9 of those teams failed to make the playoffs.

but honestly 14/2 mark it down

I think you're severely underestimating some of those teams but I like your thinking Very Happy

lol.

The 49ers defense will BULLY our offense like they've done the past 2 times. Same goes for Seattle. Out offense isn't mean enough to play those defenses.

Pats, bears, cowboys and rams are far from locks.

Division games can go any way. We could sweep or go 0-6.

I see 10-6 for us if our defense is average.

I think we can beat the Niners. It's in the Dome, Payton is back, revenge on Harbaugh... I think we can do it.

I'll take it upon myself to be the realist here then, I guess.

Niners* - L
Rams* - W
Cardinals* - W
Seahawks* - W
Bears - W
Cowboys - W
Pats - W
Bills** - L
Dolphins - W
Jets - W
Falcons x2 - 1/1
Panthers x2 - 1/1
Bucs x2 - W
*- We flat out suck against the NFC West, plain and simple.
**- That's the one game we drop because we get too full of ourselves, and Buffalo has a quietly VERY talented roster, especially its secondary and its RB's.


Explanations?
Niners - We're playing against the just-barely-not-Super-Bowl champions, and if Alex Smith was going to be QB, our chances would increase exponentially. That being said, we're forced to deal with Kaepernick instead. The Saints' defense is not exactly the best against mobile QBs, nor the option (Cam Newton, anybody? How about RGIII? Yeah, exactly.) I do, however, see Brees and the Saints' offense making one hell of a game out of it, and subduing that secondary that sometimes falls victim to some shoddy safety play (lookin' at you, Whitner).
Final score: 35-31, Niners

Rams - If the Rams could actually play offense, this game could be a toss-up. But... yeah, everyone knows that the Rams can't play offense. Our challenge will be that defense, because, just like EVERY other NFC West team, that defense will give us fits.
Final score: 28-17, Saints

Cardinals - Same thing as the Rams, if this team actually could PLAY offense, then I might be worried about this game. However, we've all seen that the opposite is true, the Cardinals have next to no offensive capabilities.
Final score: 38-10, Saints

Seahawks - After watching Richard Sherman get trucked by Jacquizz Rodgers, I really can't take him seriously. Seattle is, really, the 3rd best defense here, and this game, I think, will show the NFL how vulnerable the Seattle D can be. We win, provided we contain Wilson and Lynch.
Final score: 31-23, Saints

Bears - This game depends on which Bears team shows up. If their defense and offensive line actually play, this will be a close one. That being said, I think the chances of both factors coming out on the same day are pretty slim, and we either eat Jay Cutler or that secondary alive.
Final score: 34-13, Saints

Cowboys - I'm too iffy on the 'Boys to give them any credit. I mean, sometimes they look okay, and they look pretty good on paper, but it seems like the football gods despise Jerry Jones, and some unfortunate turn of events befalls the Cowboys and they end up losing. Playing a team like the Saints, who have the best offensive coach in the NFL back, they just don't look like a team that will put up a big fight.
Final score: 42-21, Saints

Patriots - Last time we played Tom Brady, our back-up secondary handed him his arse on a silver platter. Thus, if we get pressure on him like we did last time, this game is ours.
Final score: 35-34, Saints (Pats lose the game on a failed 2-point-conversion)

Bills - We have trouble against fast running backs. Bryce Brown... David Wilson... Jamaal Charles... And both Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller are ridiculously fast RBs. Plus we come in to this game thinking that the Bills are a bunch of nobodies, and we get 300 yards put up on us on the ground.
Final score: 35-17, Bills

Dolphins - This will be a better game if Reggie Bush stays with the Dolphins. He'll be coming out guns blazin', eager to show the football world that it would be the Saints regretting his departure, not him. Otherwise, this game is almost guaranteed as ours.
Final score: 41-23, Saints

Jets - Another team I'm not... too worried about. Your team loses a lot of credibility when your QB fumbles after running himself into the rear end of one of his offensive linemen. And unless Rex can find himself a better QB in the draft or free agency, the circus that is Mark Sanchez will continue to be the downfall of the Jets.
Final score: 45-13, Saints

Falcons - We all know the Falcons. We all know Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Michael Turner, Julio Jones, etc. We take our home game, they take theirs.
Final scores: 38-30, Saints and 35-31, Falcons

Panthers - Much like we have an issue with fast RBs, and as i have mentioned earlier in this post, we have trouble with mobile QBs. However, we end up winning in Carolina, they end up winning in New Orleans.
Final scores: 45-21, Saints and 28-27, Panthers

Bucs - This team, with as much talent and upside it has, is going downhill. Despite a LOADED team, they find ways to lose games. So, we proceed to take both games.
Final scores: 35-21 and 42-17, Saints


That leaves us at 12-4, so we win the NFC South and, therefore, pick up either the 1st or 2nd seed.

It will be their first time to the Dome since losing the Super Bowl.

They'll come ready, and mad as hell.

We might have to "plan" another blackout if the Niners start to run away with this game. LOL
