That seems fair. I know there are a lot of Zoners who will want to see us above the Saints on the sites because of our big win and their big loss, but my gut feeling still has a tough time putting us on their level. They've been proving it for a few years and Brees is obviously a difference-maker.
I don't think we're elite at all. The teams that have been doing it for years have proven it. We have to prove it year in year out to be in the same list. These rankings are just based on our record. Even Broncos went on a streak 2 years ago. Look at where they are now. But, we have many positions set to be a solid team for quite a few years now.
This is why my gut thinks we should be #5. Packers, Patriots, Saints, and Ravens. But I legit think we will win 12 or 13 games so top 5 is definitely fair, even though we're barely starting to "prove it" after years of suckage.
