It’s no secret — the New Orleans Saints looked atrocious to begin the year, starting 1-4 with the playoffs being a somewhat comical goal.

My, how the tables have turned.  Sean Payton and company won their last three games, jumping back to an even .500 and making a run at the postseason a realistic endeavor.

With victories in four of their last five contests, this once-dysfunctional organization is finally coming around, and impressive fashion on both sides of the ball, until the defense gave up a career day to Eli Manning during their shootout win against the New York Giants.

The defense is what has been keeping the Saints alive, but it was a historical day by Drew Brees and the offense that came out on top Sunday to top off the first half of the year.  That’s right, we’re halfway through the 2015 regular season, and the Black and Gold are alive and kicking hard.

With that said, it’s time to hand out midseason grades to the 2015 New Orleans Saints, beginning with their revitalized offense.
