Guide to fan survival for a miserable 2016 Saints season

New Orleans Saints defensive and special teams player grades vs. Falcons

When you consider the Saints were starting their 6th and 7th depth chart corners (going into training camp… except Sterling Moore wasn’t even on the team) and the fact that they were without Tyeler Davison, Dannell Ellerbe and Kenny Vaccaro… I guess in hindsight it was silly to expect much. The Falcons were the #1 passing offense in the NFL and Devonta Freeman is an absolute...
