The New Orleans Saints had a 13-3 season last year and looked like one of the teams that could possibly reach the Super Bowl. Their offense was a juggernaut, but their defense had a few flaws. They were awfully close to reaching the NFC Championship game. But, we all know how that turned out.

The 49ers exposed the Saints' defensive flaws; Alex Smith and Vernon Davis crushed any Super Bowl dreams the team and Who Dat Nation had. Oh, what could have been.

The New Orleans Saints still have a strong team and still have the potential to make a run at the Lombardi trophy (yes, even with suspensions). They did a good job of keeping most of their high-powered offense intact. But there are still some players, with great potential, that need to step up and help the Saints in achieving their ultimate goal in 2012.
