What Will The Saints Implosion Do For The Panthers In 2012?

Mar 21 2012 02:11 PM Sam Mills Fan Carolina Panthers
Coaching staff gone, draft picks for years to come gone, player suspensions still forthcoming, Drew Brees may not return. I think the Saints are done, even the Tampa Bay Greg Schianos will have a better record than they will.

So, 4 free wins against the Saints/Bucs to start with. If we don't make the playoffs in 2012, it will be a terrible season right?

Add two more wins to the schedule.
I'd like for this to damage them greatly... but i have a feeling that they will still be successful.

I don't see them being successful. I think we will have a superior season than them.
they'll still be competitive. they'll probably finish with a winning record. they're still loaded with talent and i hope we don't overlook them.
Hope it become a couple of wins and we don't get any body on Injury Report!!!!!

I doubt you see this team overlooking them. With Smitty's chip on his shoulder and the bounty on Cam? They'll have plenty to get fired up about.
Only thing I will say is this, Peyton and Brees turned a big steaming pile of poo franchise into a super bowl contender. Benson was ready to move the Saints before Katrina, then Peyton and Brees came to the rescue. I honestly expect a large drop off without one or the other in the future. The right thing for Benson to do would be to fire Peyton, but since the Saints have always been such a classy franchise since most of their fans began following the team in '06, I expect them to keep Peyton and not pay Brees.
I wonder if Brees will sign the tender to show his good faith to Payton. I also find it funny that Brees was one of the few QBs to get phantom calls every game for roughing the passes while his own team was headhunting. Yet he needs to know why Payton is suspended.
Two wins hopefully, that's all I care about. f*ck the taints*

I want them to suffer! I don't even want them to be able to eat air. Kill the saints !!!!!!
Hard to say right now, until I see which players get suspended.

I do think that their reign at the top of the division is over now. It was coming anyway, but this makes it much sooner.

Now, do they fizzle out? or drop straight to the bottom? That will probably rest on Drew Brees, and If he comes back for 2013.
I want them to have a losing record, but hope they win enough games to keep them out the top draft spot(s) in 2013.
One less draft pick ahead of us in next year's draft.
It should further shake up the division.
Pretty wide open now IMO.
The Saints are still loaded with talent and I expect Brees to play. Even without their HC and second round picks, I think they'll have a very good team and they're not going to roll over and die. Also, part of the reason the Bucs were so terrible last season was due to DT and QB injuries. They brought in a major offensive weapon in FA, they're picking high in the draft, and many of their players will be fighting just to keep their jobs with a new coaching staff that has no loyalty to current players. I think the NFCS is going to be hell.

A set back like this will take the wind out of their sails for at least 5-6 years. Football has more of a mind componet than people give credit for.

Win the division. I thought we were going to anyway, this just cements it.
NFCS is gonna be hard to win. We have a tough schedule outside of the division as well. NYG, WASH, Cowbitches, Bronocos, Bears... not a cake walk.
Y'all funny. Just moved from Raleigh to ATL after 13 years. Lifelong Saints fan. Gotta say, love Cam Newton, but, with or without Payton we are going to be SAVAGE this year. Good luck though!

I believe it won't do anything. Saints are still the saints. As long as brees is there, it's going to be hard to beat them. They added Grubbs, Lofton, and Hawthrone. I'd be happy if we could break one of the two.
