3 reasons the New Orleans Saints can win the Super Bowl next season

There's plenty of critics ready to write off 2015 as a lost season for the New Orleans Saints. We're not part of those critics. Here's 3 reasons the New Orleans Saints can win the Super Bowl next season.

3. Defense! *Clap Clap* Defense!

Cornerback Brandon Browner will end up being one of the sneaky great additions of this past offseason, and the selections of Stephone Anthony and Hau'oli Kikaha in the 2015 NFL Draft will breathe some youthful exuberance into the team's defensive unit. There's plenty of time for the team's defense to gel this summer, and that could very well mean that they shock everyone with major improvements up and down the board. If so, this team is the favorite in the NFC South.

2. The NFC South

The Carolina Panthers are the definition of a "hide and go seek" football team. The Tampa Bay Bucs will have a rookie under center and they're...the Bucs. Atlanta will be in a transitional period under a first-year head coach and they're stuck in a cycle of perpetual underachievement. The door is wide open for the Saints to dominate, providing step one on the road to Super Bowl glory.

1. Drew Brees. Drew Brees. And More Drew Brees.

Can we just stop with the Drew Brees "over the hill" garbage? Brees was forced to throw more than any other NFL quarterback in 2014, leading the league with an eye-popping 659 passing attempts. That marked his fifth straight year with 650 passing attempts or more. Interceptions are gonna come with that high volume, but Brees' mastery of the position and fruitful relationship with Sean Payton means more Arena Football League-like numbers in 2015.
