Schefter: Saints a Super Bowl favorite

By Pat Yasinskas

New Orleans fans, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says in this Insider post that there’s no reason the Saints can’t be a Super Bowl favorite.

Schefter makes it clear that part of that equation entails rookies Cameron Jordan, Mark Ingram and Martez Wilson being productive right off the bat. No argument here. If those guys are what everyone seems to think, they should fill some holes the Saints had last season.

Schefter also cites that the Saints could face strong competition in the NFC South from the Falcons and Buccaneers and sings the praises of the draft classes throughout the division.
