Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune wrote the Saints haveThe Tennessee Titans will return to primetime this Monday night to take on the Saints in New Orleans before a national television audience. Although much of the hype will surround Vince Young and Reggie Bush, two of the top three draft picks last year, the real story is about the teams. The NFC runners-up last year, the Saints fell one game short of a Super Bowl appearance and were touted by many as favorites to make it this year. Surprisingly, they're off to an 0-2 start, losing to the Super Bowl champion Colts and the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Monday night will be their home opener and they'll be as dangerous as an animal backed into a corner. New Orleans scouting report: Overview - A loss by anyone to the Colts isn't considered a surprise, and the Saints played them evenly in the first half of their season opener before being blown out in the second half. The loss to the Bucs is another story. Tampa Bay stormed to a 28-0 lead and Joey Galloway torched the Saints secondary for 135 receiving yards and two TDs. Sean Payton, the 2006 NFL Coach of the Year, and his Saints team are being thoroughly pilloried in the New Orleans newspapers.
"one of the league's most anemic offenses, one of the league's most penetrable defenses and one of the league's shakiest special teams units."
"They don't run, block, pass, catch, tackle, cover, kick or coach well, which means they don't score or prevent opponents from doing so, either."
