Don’t Be The Fool Who Counts Out Sean Payton And The Saints


That is the Saints regular season record since 2017 with 4 straight NFC South Titles.

It has not mattered if the aging Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston has started at QB. All have won big under Sean Payton.

Here’s the dirty little secret about the Saints. The defense is elite and carrying this team.

The defense has allowed two 100 yard rushers in last 4 seasons total!

The DLine is loaded with Cam Jordan, Marcus Davenport and the returning David Onyemata.

The Man of God Demario Davis is one of the top LBs in the NFL and Kwon Alexander is criminally underrated.

Marshawn Lattimore is a shutdown corner. Safeties Marcus Williams and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson are everywhere with Malcolm Jenkins as a reliable vet.

Dennis Allen came back in 2017 and has done a spectacular job turning around the worst unit in the league from 2014-16.

The Saints forced 3 Tom Brady turnovers Sunday and PJ Williams pick 6 sealed the game to get to 5-2.

I was bummed for Jameis Winston on Sunday in the SuperDome tearing his knee up. He is an easy guy to pull for and everyone loves a comeback.

And I hated to see Michael Thomas tweet this morning announcing he is out for the season.

Who knows if Jameis or Thomas ever play for the Saints again?

Now the Saints turn to Taysom Hill at QB with Trevor Siemian as backup.

While that does not sound exciting, you are a fool if you count the Black and Gold out.

The Saints will march on because Sean Payton and this defense are that damn good.
