Quest to .500!!!

After a 0-3 start the Saints have quietly won 3 of their last 4 and look to even things up today against the hated San Francisco 49ers. The Saints will finally get to see their 2016 1st round selection DT Sheldon Rankins in action today after he was sidelined due to a broken fibula for the 1st half of the season.

With the Saints offense operating at a high level once again and their defense slowly making strides and getting healthier the Saints look to turn their season around today by pulling themselves out of the hole they dug early in the season. In their way is former division rival San Francisco and controversial quarterback Colin Kapernick as well as linebacker Ahmad Brooks whom has sacked Saints quarterback Drew Brees more than any other defender in the NFL.

Time will tell if this young Saints team is up for the task of making a run here down the stretch but one things for sure, if their going to make a season out of it today's game could be a turning point in either direction.

without Carlos Hyde, if the Saints can't win this one comfortably my optimism will take a bit of a hit. Can't wait to watch the defense today with Rankins and Breaux back too !!!

Anyone peep the 49ers forum? Seeing their facetious attitude towards the season is very reminiscent of us these last 3 years Laughing I don't like the idea of another teams fanbase expecting to lose to the Saints though, feels wrong.

Also, here's a fun fact: Right now we're doing our usual shtick of starting slow then pulling together a few surprise wins in October. However, will we fall apart in November before grabbing a few meaningless wins in December to finish 7-9 and fall outside the top 10 in draft position?

2015: 4-4 before the Titans. started a 4 game losing streak
2014: 4-4 before the 49ers. started a 3 game losing streak
2012: 5-5 before the 49ers. started a 3 game losing streak

and guess who we're playing today? Laughing It's been foretold

With Hightower grasping the starting gig and Payton high on Lasco's potential... I really think we will see Ingram moved this offseason either for a pick or in a package to move up in draft.

I understand Hightower will be 32 next season but he appears to have another year or so in him to get Lasco ready and this is a deep RB class in 2017. Just seems Ingram has become an expendable commodity... maybe move him for a defender to improve defense further.

Last year we lost to the Titans in the Dome while trying to get to .500, so a loss here wouldn't have surprised me one bit. I think we're a different team though. We're actually a solid team this year. I don't think we'll blow them out w/ our defense, but we SHOULD win.

You know your defense sucks when you can score on damn near every drive and you still might lose.

Mike Thomas is incredible. Dude will be at least a top 3 receiver in franchise history.

Hey, we held them to 3 in the second half. I'll take that any day of the week. And then when you include the 4 turnovers that was some classing Saints under Payton defense.

I don't lean on the turnovers, unless its like the 09 team where the guys were clearly good at grabbing the ball. This team seems more like they luck into them than anything. Although, some have been legitimately good plays.
