Saints falder i samtlige power renkings.

Efter New Orleans Saints nederlag til Washington Redskins i weekenden suser Saints ned i samtlige power rankings.

TV2sports Claus Elming har Saints som nummer 14, en tilbagegang på hele syv pladser og skriver på til placering:

Tabte til Redskins… ja, du læste rigtigt!

Hvilket vel også overraskede de fleste!

Lars Aanæs fra firstdown.dk har været lidt venligere overfor holdet. Han har placeret Saints lige udenfor top 10 på en 11. plads.

En OL som spiller som på udebane, med masser af foulstarts, og et forsvar som giver et par store spil for meget op er = nederlag.

Flere amerikanske medier derblandt NOLA.com har Saints som nummer 16.

The Saints raised more questions than answers about their defense

NFL.com falder Saints også. Her er holdet faldet hele 10 pladser til … nummer 16.

Drew Brees did not look sharp in the opener. Nor did the entire Saints offense. Maybe Sean Payton’s absence hurts the New Orleans attack a little more than most league observers thought. The running game was nonexistent. Ditto the pass rush. Could this be a 9-7 or 8-8 team?

Saints falder fem pladser på ESPN.com til nummer 16.

New defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo must have felt he was still with the Rams.

Sports Illustrated har Saints som nummer 11. Holdet er faldet fra 7. pladsen.

So much for the revenge factor. The Saints’ reservoir of built-up emotion seemed to burn off pretty quickly against the Redskins. Roughly right around the time RGIII hit Pierre Garcon on that 88-yard touchdown pass to retake the lead for good. This week’s trip to Carolina might be when we find out the true indication of how much Sean Payton’s game-day influence is missed. New Orleans has been known to struggle on the road in the division at times, but Payton had a knack for mid-game adjustments and being able to rouse his underachieving team after a sluggish start.

CBS har Saints som nummer 12 efter de havde indtaget 9. pladsen.

They have major issues on defense that could put even more pressure on Drew Brees to do even more. They have pass-rush issues.

Pro Football Talk har Saints ranket som nummer 15 i deres power rankings.

It’s hard not to wonder if the Saints would have looked better prepared if they had signed Drew Brees not before training camp but before the offseason program.

Forhåbentlig finder Saints vej ind i top ti med en sejr over Carolina Panthers, men dette må tiden vise.
