Saints Tickets – New Orleans Saints Tickets
The New Orleans Saints pose a huge question for NFL football fans. Never in the history of the NFL has a talented team like the Saints entered a season with so many questions to be answered. New Orleans has been a top franchise for five years now, but with so much going on it’s going to take a crystal ball to see what’s ahead.
First of all the offensive mastermind of the team is going to be at home as Sean Payton takes the hit for the Bounty scandal. Joe Vitt will run things in the pre-season but he serves his own suspension during the year. Starting middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma is out all year and Will Smith must serve his own time.
Luckily, New Orleans can count on the playcalling of pete Carmichael Jr. to get them through the season. Carmichael took on the role last year when Payton was out with a broken leg and did well with it. The Vilma problem was solved by signing Curtis Lofton away from the Atlanta Falcons and the defense as a whole will be overhauled under new Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
Don’t expect many changes on offense. Drew Brees should get signed, despite the doomsday calls. And Brees will still be throwing to Marques Colston, Jimmy Graham, and Darren Sproles so the passing game should remain relatively intact. We may see more running as mark Ingram comes into his sophomore season. The former #1 Draft Choice did well in the rotation last season should take a step up in 2012.
A look over the Saints 2012 schedule shows some excellent matchups. The Washington Redskins will be bringing RG3 to the Superdome in his NFL debut, and New Orleans will also welcome the Atlanta Falcons, San Diego Chargers, and San Francisco 49ers to the hostile confines of the Mercedes Benz Superdome. On the road, big games include trips to take on the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.
