But even with all of those potential potholes, the Saints are among ten teams that have a legit chance to win a Super Bowl. In the NFC, those teams are the Packers, Giants, Eagles, 49ers, and Saints.
Buried underneath all of the negative publicity of the bounty scandal is this: in free agency, the Saints appear to have done quite well. The signed defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, a host of veteran linebackers, and Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs are just a few examples.
It's like the football version of Jack Canfield's Law of Attraction. The Saints have an excellent team, with a top shelf quarterback. Players want to come here.
When Vitt says the best since he's been here, he could be correct.
