It's only preseason
Of course, this is the problem with preseason.
Last year, it would have been next to impossible to be worse than the Saints were in their preseason game against the Cowboys here.
So what happens? The Saints make some moves, put together a different team, defeat Dallas in the regular season and reach the NFC Championship Game.
It's hard to tell what will happen in the regular season because of the way a team plays in the preseason.
But it's OK for area fans to dream.
