The New Orleans Saints biggest flaw last season was their defense.

The New Orleans Saints look to improve on this flaw as the upcoming season approaches. After struggling at times last season on defense and ending again at 7-9, there are obviously some issues that need to be reworked.

As mightily as the Saints struggled last year on defense there is a lot of room for optimism and hope as this season approaches. For those expecting some sort of change from last year to now, the Saints did end up accomplishing a lot this offseason. After acquiring talent through free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft, the Saints clamped down and showed this team was serious about improving.

If you’ve been a Saints fan you know by now that no matter how phenomenal this Saints offense can be, led by Sean Payton and Drew Brees, you’re always skeptical because of the defense. This defense has, unfortunately, cost the Saints so many games. Especially during last season. Overall, this defense practically embodies embarrassment for the New Orleans Saints.

After all of the misery the Saints defense has given fans during the past so many years, this defense should hopefully be different. Now although the defense has been the weakest chain for the New Orleans Saints in years past, the team is making strides to improve what in the past it has failed to.

I believe the New Orleans Saints WILL improve this season. For those who are a bit skeptical about my claim, here are four reasons why I believe the Saints defense will spell success in 2017.
