Football fans who order their sports packages for directv know their football, but not everyone knows the Saints. After being a laughingstock for many years, the New Orleans Saints developed into one of the NFL’s top powerhouses from 2009-2011. Their exciting, high scoring offense thrilled viewers and drove opposing coaches crazy. After waiting for over 40 years for a title, Saints were treated to a Super Bowl victory in February 2010.
If you are like most New Orleans Saints fans, you are eager for the 2013 season to begin. After being embroiled in the so-called “bountygate” controversy, the Saints suffered through a disappointing 7-9 season in 2012 under interim head coach Joe Vitt. With Sean Payton back, however, New Orleans is hoping to quickly return to elite status. Payton, the most successful coach in franchise history, hopes to guide the Saints to the promised land and win Super Bowl 48. The Saints took a major step in that direction by hiring defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to turn around their woeful defense. Ryan will attempt to build around formidable linebacker Jonathan Vilma. The offense should continue to be explosive behind star quarterback Drew Brees and speedy wide receiver Marques Colston.
