Based off last year and offseason moves how do you see an issue with this?
Lets see RG3 coming off and Knee injury plus they made hardly no offseason moves besides draft picks which they didnt have many of. They have to rely solely on draft picks and the players they had last year. I expect them to regress a little with teams now having all offseason to breakdown RG3.
Lets see the Bears....they picked up Bushrod who will struggle against Clay and Jared. They still have some stars on D that are aging and also have gaping holes at LB. Urlacher must be replaced, as a now thats DJ Williams. OLINE is still a question and they have a new head coach.
The Colts overachieved last year and have made lots of FA signings to backups. Luck is the real deal but they could use upgrades along their OLINE, RB, WR, and CB.
The Saints had a strong draft and quiet as kept a strong FA. Vacarro the top safety prospect, John Jenkins, Armstead, and Stills in the draft. Landed Keenan Lewis one of the top CB prospects in FA, Butler and other key depth moves to help the 3-4 transition. Not to mention a motivated Brees and a motivated playcaller/HC in Payton who has been off an entire year with a boulder on his shoulder.
The Bengals are the only team out of these teams that I wouldnt question being ranked ahead of the Saints. The DLINE is nasty, they had a good draft and they made some FA moves.
The Vikings smashed the draft and went to the Playoffs last year yet they are behind the Saints. The Rams and Bucs also k!lled FA and the draft and yet they are behind the Saints too....see what I'm sayin? Its flawed
