The Saints have been letting teams go marching in their end zone a lot lately. The team has one of the most flawed defences in the NFL and it really killed them last year. As a franchise, they have a pretty limited playoff history. They do have a single Super Bowl win in 2009. But elsewhere they only have a conference championship from the same year, and 5 division titles. They have retired a few numbers of their great ones over the years.
They also had great careers from Archie Manning, Rickey Jackson, Willie Roaf, and Morten Andersen. The team has missed the playoffs the last few seasons, partly due to their defensive issues.

New Orleans Saints Record
Key dates in the team history. February 7, 2010: The brightest day in Saints history as they beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV by a final score of 31-17. Drew Brees, who completed 32 of 39 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns, was named the Super Bowl MVP.
How strong is the team within its division/conference? This is a tight division and their offense keeps them competing. But they have not actually made the playoffs since 2013. They don’t have a lot of money to play with, so they are going to have to do the best they can with their current roster, or draft/ trade flawlessly.
What are the team’s main strengths vs weaknesses? The offensive talent is the only reason they win. Drew Brees remains amazing, and as long as he’s healthy, they can beat any team in a single game situation. The playoffs is a stretch though.
How far does the team usually go in the league? You figure they will need at least 10 wins to make the playoffs, and win at least 3 inter division games next year. That’s a tall order, and puts a lot of pressure on Drew Brees’ arm.
