Saints expectations are championships and nothing else | wwltv.com New Orleans
In the past three seasons, the Saints have won 13 games, 11 games and 13 games. They’ve gone 3-0 in the playoffs and won a Super Bowl, gone 0-1 and lost in the wild-card round and gone 1-1 with a divisional-round loss.
Opportunity lost for now, Saints still have Super potential
"The thing that I will take from it, we'll probably all be a little regretful about what could have been," said Morstead. "Because we had everything we needed here to go all the way."
How much should Drew Brees make? - NFC South Blog - ESPN
Bottom line: Brees should get more than Vick and something similar to what Brady and Manning got. The structure is open to creativity. But I think it’s safe to say Brees can expect to average somewhere around $18 million per season and the Saints can count on his yearly cap figure starting off somewhere around $15 million.

Q: I have a question about the New Orleans Saints' defense. I'm a little confused why everyone is calling it "bad" -- specifically the pass D, because they are decent against the run. The Saints have played 6 games against top 10 passing teams, and 4 against top 5 passing teams. Of those 6, they won 4 by 14-plus -- and three of those games were three-possession blowouts. The only passing team they fell to was the Green Bay Packers in Week 1 after no offseason camp. I wouldn't say that the Saints have a great defense, and obviously they aren't capitalizing on turnovers, but I haven't seen anyone touch on these facts. I don't think you can call the Saints defense great, and sure it feeds off the offense, but I think they are better than at least 16 other defenses.
Big Questions, But Not Easy in New Orleans: Drew Brees, Marques Colston, and Carl Nicks Are All Free Agents | The Big Lead
Despite Williams’ blitz heavy style, the Saints were 5th worst in the league in defensive sack rate. The leader in sacks was a safety, Roman Harper (7.5 sacks), who was a liability in coverage and frequently came in blitzes. Will Smith was the only other player on defense to have more than 5 sacks. For a team that plays so often with the lead and puts pressure on opponents to pass to keep up, that is pretty dismal. WELL SAID! SAINTS FANS AGREE!
