Is Penn State's performance against Ohio indicative of what the Saints** will do?

i expect they'll start off strong but as the game goes on and teams start to adapt they won't be able to keep up.

Kind of a stretch. NO didn't have the roster turnover PSU had. They could just as easily channel the Spygate Pats and go roughshod.
This. PSU lost starters and playmakers at many positions via transfer. They played better than I thought they would in the 1H and worse than I thought they would in the 2H.

Not saying that the Saints* won't struggle, they might. But the two situations are not really comparable. New Orleans offense is mostly intact.

if they are anywhere close to as dominant as they were then something is wrong. either payton is really involved or payton has made himself obsolete and unnecessary.
if that team hits a rough spots and loses a couple games back to back that could very well cause a downward spiral. i'm just not sure they have the leadership there to pull themselves out and if they do then, again, payton may have become irrelevant.
