After the past two dreadful losses to opponents the New Orleans Saints had a true shot at winning, fans are split on the outcome of the season for the team but are standing together on one main platform.

The predictions are coming in from multiple fans on how the Saints will fair this season and it covers all ends of the spectrum.  While there are still fourteen games to be played, there are picks ranging from apocalyptic to overly optimistic.

After surfing social media and simply asking random individuals, I’ve heard that the team will go in the realm of 5-11 to the other end of 12-4.  A majority of the choices centered around 8-8 or 7-9.  The word “lucky” has accompanied a few of those.

While they all have their opinions of where the Saints will end up at the end of the season, there is one thing that the fans all agree on:  Faith.  No matter if they picked the Saints to win or lose it all, the “Who Dats” are still rallying around the team in the current crisis.

On that same token, they also agree that adversity has hit the team in the offseason and as of late but don’t want that to be an excuse to fall on to ditch the team.

Interim head coach Aaron Kromer said yesterday after the loss that the Saints are down but “not out” and that they would “right the ship”.  You can bet there are plenty members of Who Dat Nation with buckets to help start bailing out the water for their beloved team.
