Podcast: Don't sleep on the Saints in the NFC South

Our division-by-division preview continues with Nick Underhill of New Orleans.Football to break down the Saints... a team that's clearly still going for it all post-Drew Brees.

Drew Brees is gone. The NFL’s all-time leading passer has retired.

And, yet, Sean Payton is keeping the pedal to the metal. These New Orleans Saints fully expect to win in 2021, and beyond.

Is that realistic?

To examine one of the most fascinating teams in the league, we chat with Nick Underhill of New Orleans.Football on this episode of the Go Long Podcast. Underhill has his finger on the pulse of the quarterback battle between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. Also, in case you missed it, here’s our feature on Winston at Go Long from Friday.

A few topics discussed:

  • Has Winston turned the corner and rewired his decision-making? Could this be a winning union between him and Payton?

  • Where does Hill fit into everything? We know Payton loves him, too.

  • The latest on Michael Thomas. What happened exactly this offseason and have he and Payton buried the hatchet?

  • The mentality of a team that’s been so, so close to glory these last four years only to lose in heartbreaking fashion.

  • A quick whip around the rest of the NFC South — Monos loves what’s building in Carolina.

  • And we recorded the night before Tim Tebow’s release but explain why the Jags should grant him a roster spot. (Hang with us…)
