The New Orleans Saints have undoubtedly experienced the worst offseason in recent memory of any team in the NFL.
Due to the scandal now widely known as Bountygate, the Saints have lost much of its coaching staff for the foreseeable future.
Head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the duration of the season. Assistant coach Joe Vitt was also handed a six-game suspension by Roger Goodell for his involvement, which resulted in finding an interim coach to take over as the current interim coach serves his suspension.
The instability that comes with a head coaching carousel can take away the focus from on-field performance.
But despite missing head coach Sean Payton for the entire season, the Saints will continue to be favorites in the NFC.
