The toughest action to take in the NFL is always to win back again to back Super Bowls especially with the NFL being as balanced since it ever has been. The New Orleans Saints won the 2010 Super Bowl by playing balanced football as a group, making big plays, staying a wholesome at the proper time and only a little Cajun luck so before generally making your NFL Picks to win the 2011 Super bowl, discover if the Saints can repeat.
The Saints come into the 2010-11 season equipped with the tools to win it all again. It starts with the most effective passing offense in the league lead by Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees who has thrown for at least 4000 yards in five consecutive seasons and an array of explosive receivers in Marques Colston, Jermey Shockey, Robert Meachem and Reggie Bush.
To compliment their passing offense, the Saints also bring a balanced run attack to the table helping to make them almost impossible to stop. They lost running back Mike Bell as he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles but they will have Pierre Thomas who was their #1 back last season amongst a backfield that saw 3 running backs overcome 70 carries in 2009-10 seasons. This offense will once again create problems for NFL defenses especially behind the genius mind of head coach Sean Peyton who calls the plays and lead the league altogether offense yards three out of the four years with the Saints.
The weakness of the Saints last year was definitely their defense although they constructed all the yards they quit by making big plays consistently through the entire season. The defense did improve under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and Darren Sharper's big plays to create a Saint team which was 22nd in the turnover the prior year to 3rd last season. The Saints pass defense was ranked 26th from the pass and 21st from the run but with the new addition of Alex Brown who came from the Chicago Bears and the draft pick of 309 pound Al Woods, the betting odds are safe to state they would have been a definitely better defense this season.
Momentum and health means everything when contending for a Super Bowl and the Saints must deal with some adversity early in the season. Their defensive captain Darren Sharper will miss a couple of games because of micro fracture knee surgery and coming off their first Super Bowl in franchise history will generate a group hangover.
