New Orleans Saints Tickets – 2014 Tickets and Preview
2014 New Orleans Saints tickets will be bold, beautiful, and hopefully, winners on the road. Looking back at New Orleans successes and failures it becomes obvious that the Saints must be more successful outside the confines of the Mercedes Benz Superdome . New Orleans was 8-0 playing in the Crescent City but only 3-5 when traveling. A renewed emphasis on the running game, with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson sharing duties, has been rumored to be in the works to solve the problem. Regardless, the 2014 New Orleans Saints will once again be in the running for an NFC South title, a spot in the playoffs, and a shot at another Super Bowl.
Drew Brees shows no signs of slowing down. The Saints made changes to the offensive line they hope will provide better protection for Brees. More to the point, the blocking scheme is being altered to better fit the talent of Mark Ingram, former #1 pick who has had some problems getting rolling as a pro. While Marques Colston is still there and still productive, New Orleans traded up in the draft to snag Brandin Cooks, the fastest wide receiver in the NFL Draft and a player that help fill the gap left by the departure of Darren Sproles as well as stretch defenses with his speed. Finally, Tight End Jimmy Graham is signed , sealed, and delivered, one of the best pass catching Tight Ends in NFL history.
Rob Ryan is a hero in New Orleans. The Saints defensive coordinator took the worst defense in NFL history and turned it into the #4 defense in 2013. The unit will undergo some changes. Jabari Greer is gone, as well as Roman Harper. Ryan signed Champ Bailey for his experience, though he may have lost a step, and tagged Jarius Byrd to pair up with rookie phenom Kenny Vaccaro, giving the New Orleans Saints a formidable pair of hitters in the backfield.
Of course, the 2014 Schedule for the New Orleans Saints is going to be a doozy. The Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons, both of whom are capable of winning the NFC South, will fill four dates on the home and away schedule. Even the Tampa bay Buccaneers will be better in 2014. The NFC South is competitive. The rest of the schedule reads like a who’s who of playoff teams: Green Bay, Cincinnati, Chicago, the San Francisco 49ers. It’s going to be one fun, but bruising, 2014 NFL season in New Orleans.
