Back in February, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees told the world, “It’s our time to make a run.”
In an appearance on Sports Illustrated Now during Super Bowl week festivities, Brees was only optimistic on the black and gold’s chances heading into 2016. As Brees alluded to, it’s going to take a lot of hard work to be contenders for an organization who hasn’t had any taste of the postseason since 2013.
So, how’s this going to work? After all, we’ve heard the chatter that the team believes in their abilities. However, it has yet to show up on the field. The Saints finished last season on a positive note, winning three out of their last four contests.
Common themes have contributed to the Saints back-to-back 7-9 records in the past two years. The 2016 squad looks to avenge two losing seasons in a row, and the pressure builds within the organization to get back to their winning football ways.
With coaching changes, free agency finds, and a strong rookie class to get excited about, what are the areas that will make or break the New Orleans Saints this season?
