It's kind of hard to imagine that they're going to have many losses this season. Their offense is absolutely tearing it up and their defense has been respectable. They are also a fun team to watch. I always root for the 9ers first, but if the Saints went all the way this season, I would be ok with that.
their problem has always been poor starts and inconsistency. They seemed to have finally avoided that this year and the running game is as good as it's been since Deuce was in his prime. Also that division has historically had good to great defenses with TB and carolina, both of which has fallen off and the jury is still out on ATLs D. I would be concerned about the depth on that defense is about all. If NO stays healthy NYG is about the only team that I think could derail them, and they have health issues of their own.
A lot can happen between now and the end of the year, but they're definitely off to a ridiculously strong start. Now that they seem to have a rushing attack to compliment Brees, their offense will be deadly. Still not convinced their defense can keep up over the course of the season, but if they're running game can keep them off the field they should be okay.
