2. The Sean Payton-less Saints Offense

For a while there, before Drew Brees inked his new deal, the prospect of a Chase Daniel/Aaron Kromer QB/head coach combo on opening day was looking very real in New Orleans. Brees is back in the saddle, but Payton is suspended for the season. Since Payton recruited (and accidentally drove him through the most hurricane-ravaged part of town) Brees to play for the Saints in 2006, the two have built and groomed an offensive philosophy together. And the Saints didn’t lose just Payton. They lost the top offensive guard in football in Carl Nicks to free agency, too. Can Brees carry the load without them? - Peter Schrager (AP Photo/Bill Haber)
