Ok, we are all in agreement that the 2016 New Orleans Saints season has turned into a total bust for us. Many of the same problems that plagued us the last couple of seasons are still there. But, on the bright side, some are not. The offensive line has played better than times past and in couple of games the running game actually carried the offense. And along those lines I think the receiving corps as a whole is finally beginning to have an identity.
One major improvement I don’t think should be over-looked is the fact the defense is improving. No, it’s not to the caliber of the Dome Patrol, but there has been a noticeable improvement from the last couple of seasons.
