This is not click bait! Not a "hey let's have a hot take." It's what I believe. I think this Saints defense will be the best the team has had under Sean Payton. Better than 2009, the year they won it all? Yes! Here is why. That defense was opportunistic. So far this defense is physical and...

That's not hyperbole; that's the truth. The Saints defense dominated the Saints offense today at training camp. Dennis Allen's unit forced six turnovers in team portions of practice and seven-on-seven drills "That was the best seven-on-seven period for the defense I've seen in the 12 years that...

Drew Brees is the obvious starter, of course; but after the departure of Chase Daniel, the #2 quarterback spot is up for grabs. Taysom Hill, Tom Savage, and J.T.
