The New Orleans Saints have head coach Sean Payton back and quite the character in new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, but are the Saints the most interesting team in the NFL?
Adam Schein of NFL.com seems to think so and provides a laundry list of reasons as to why here, wrapping thing up by giving his projections as well:
Here’s what I believe: Brees and Payton will be back with more swagger and carry the defense (which will be awful early … before getting a bit better down the stretch). I think New Orleans should bounce back and win 9 or 10 games. These Saints will lose games you think they should win and win games they are expected to lose. Tampa Bay is very close, but New Orleans is the second-best team in the NFC South behind Atlanta. At least that’s what I believe.
Here’s one thing I know: It won’t be boring in New Orleans.
When it comes to the 2013 Saints, fascination abounds.
The Saints may not be the most interesting team, that title could go somewhere like New England at this point, but New Orleans is certainly up there.
The Saints are attempting to make a rebound from the worst statistical defense in NFL history with a mastermind in Ryan. The offense is back under the guidance of Sean Payton and each position outside of the offensive line is stacked with talent. Even the same can be said for the defense, but a new scheme has to find a way to get the most out of the talent.
We could go on and on about why the Saints are so interesting, but we would rather hear what you guys think! Are the Saints the most interesting team? Why? Let us know in the comments or find us on Twitter and Facebook!
