Saints ready for new run in Season 5 New Orleans, LA - Savage Mason Reporting Year 4 was, interesting to say the least. A promising 5-0 start which watched the Saints steam roll most of their opponents, began to unravel as a 4-6 ten game stretch quickly arrived when the Saints lost most of their starters to injury, which included QB Drew Brees for 10 weeks. Saints were able to pull it all together and Bree was able to get his team in the playoffs, but only knocked out in the first round by a very un-beatable bears team that day."We did nothing right and they did nothing wrong. I am not sure anyone could have beaten that team that day in that stadium", Coach Nate. But today marks the start of a new beginning for the Saints and their coaching staff. After making the playoffs for the last 2 years, anything short of the playoffs is a bad year. The Panthers have set the mark as the team to beat, but with new fresh blood in the NFC South, things could get interesting if the Saints don't get off to a fast start.It was a pretty quiet offseason for the Saints. Looking to only make a few moves, the Saints were mainly worried about building around what they had. Out was RB P. Thomas and in is WR P. Garcon. Garcon will not put together one of the best WR corps in the NFC and maybe the OMFL. Bring back a pro bowl QB in Brees and the Saints offense looks to explode this year. Brees - " We really wanted to add some more speed to our WR corp and I'm excited about getting on the field with a healthy Henderson, a much improved, possibly the most improved on the team, Meachem, and a new Garcon. The one thing that we were missing last year that we had the year we went to the Championship was a strong back to pick up those tough yards. That really opened up our offense and with Shonne Greene coming in, I think the sky is the limit for this offense." Greene will bring a tough presence to the Saints offense and allow Bush to be more explosive out of the back field. It should be a thunder and lightning duo that equals what Keller and Jacobs did 2 seasons ago as the Saints found their way to the NFCC.Saints defense also added some firepower to the defensive side of the ball, the side of the ball which struggled the most and seen the most injuries last season. Out was DE Smith, FS Sharper, OLB Shanle just to name a few. In comes rookie DT Edwards, rookie DE LaCoste, rookie FS duo Hatchie and Windsor, DT Solioui, and LB Herring. Saints have added youth and speed to a old and slow defense - improvement will have to be seen on the field one way or the other. We have goals and we have to reach them. Ya the injuries were bad last year but its football, you've gotta roll through it. We've worked hard on doing what we could this offseason to use the draft and FA's to really strengthen our weaknesses and depth. I like our changes - Coach Nate. Saints kick the season off against the NY Giants and Coach Dave. A quick start is a must in a very competitive NFC South.
