NFC South: Saints Come Marching Back!

New Orleans Saints

The NFC South is one of the newer divisions in the NFL, but one of the most successful, evenly matched and certainly one of the most fun to watch.

Every team in the division has played in a conference championship and every one has played in a Super Bowl.

Since 2002, when the division was formed, every team has won the division at least twice, so it’s a very evenly matched division.

In terms of entertainment value, from a fan’s perspective, the NFC South has some of the most exciting and wide-open, pass-happy offenses to watch.

By the way, did you see where Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton said Tampa Bay secretly believes starting quarterback Josh Freeman can’t play, and that they are grooming rookie Mike Glennon to take over pronto?

“Josh Freeman has proven to me that he can’t play,” Tarkenton said in a radio interview with WDAE.

What do you think? Is Josh Freeman bogus? I mean, the guy did throw for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns last year.

And can the Saints, with newly returned coach Sean Payton, break Atlanta’s stranglehold on the division? Will they at least finish better than last year’s 7-9?

Here is what I think, based on training camp and preseason film, as well as extensive interviews with league sources.
