3. The Saints Defense Will Be Top 10 in Turnovers

To be clear, I am not saying that the Saints will rank in the top 10 in total defense.

However, given the promise of the young corners, and the added talent along the defensive line, and Dennis Allen’s meticulous approach, I expect the Saints defense to find a swagger they haven’t had since the days of Gregg Williams.

This swagger will result in Saints flying to the ball, an aggressive mindset, and turnovers. Lots of them.

The chess match James Laurinaitis will play against opposing offenses in the middle of the field will allow his young Saints teammates such as Stephone Anthony and Kenny Vaccaro to focus on making plays.

They will be able to trust their instincts because they will be in position.

P.J. Williams will go through growing pains as all young corners do, but ultimately he will come back stronger for it.

The cornerback tandem of Delvin Breaux and P.J. Williams will emerge as a much improved version of last season’s starting corners, with the ability to keep up with receivers in tough man-to-man coverage situations.
