New Orleans Saints
Even if they weren’t a huge rival of the Atlanta Falcons, they would certainly be on here. They are in the deepest hole in the league.
Let’s just start listing all the reasons why they are in the worst situation in the entire NFL: they have a head coach with a 12-37 career record, they have the league’s third-oldest roster, they don’t have their first-round pick that will almost certainly be a top-ten pick, they—by a wide margin—have the least amount of projected cap space, they are injury prone, and they have no potential franchise quarterback.
They seem to be in the mindset of “we have a win-now roster” each and every year. They are unwilling to do what the Falcons have done and bite the bullet for the future. No matter what Saints fans say, their cap space is holding them back.
Their roster isn’t good, they are projected to be about $60 million in the hole, and they are old. As long as they stick with their awful strategy, they will be mediocre at best.
