Regardless of who the New Orleans Saints QB is, this team is pretty good.
As much as we all love Drew Brees, we can all say this with confidence. This New Orleans Saints team is good enough to win without him. We’ve seen that over time as Brees was often, towards the end of his career, dealing with more than his fair share of nicks and bruises. What happened? The Saints, more often than not, won anyway.
When the 2021 season officially begins, the Saints will be one of the favorites to win the NFC South. They have one of the NFL’s best coaches, Sean Payton, and according to Pro Football Focus, they have the game’s fourth-best offensive line. PFF also believes that they have the second-best defensive line in the NFC South behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Those Bucs should be their only hindrance to winning the division again this season.
Jameis Winston doesn’t have to be Joe Burrow or Justin Herbert and put an entire franchise on his back. He just has to drive the car without crashing it, and with Payton’s help, he can do that.
Jameis Winston, in 2019 with the aforementioned Bucs, threw 33 touchdown passes in 16 games as their starter. Unfortunately, he also threw 30 interceptions, and that’s a huge reason why he’s in the Big Easy now.
Winston gained something from that season though, experience, and that plus everything he’s gained in New Orleans will thrust him into a great season this time around.
