The times, they are a changin’. Gone is SB Nation FanPulse, and in is SB Nation Reacts - same fan surveys with a new name.
This week, fans of the New Orleans Saints were polled and asked how many wins they expect the Saints to hit in 2020. Fan confidence is clearly high, with 100% of fans polled predicting the Saints winning at least 11 games.
Similarly, the majority of fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers polled gave the Bucs 11-13 wins in 2020. Fan confidence is not nearly as high around the rest of the NFC South, with the 6-8 wins the most popular selection for the Atlanta Falcons. (Another 7-9 season incoming, perhaps?) For the rebuilding Carolina Panthers, confidence is even lower, with the majority of fans predicting 0-5 wins - potentially in hopes of tanking for Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, despite just signing former Saint Teddy Bridgewater.
Also of interest, fans all over the NFL were polled regarding which game of the projected Week 1 slate excited them the most. The answer? The battle of the (old) goats, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing off against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
It’s hard to say I blame them.
