The Saints have been to the playoffs three of the past four years. They were eliminated by Seattle twice, and San Francisco in that span. Those teams have each represented the NFC in the Super Bowl in the past two years. Saints GM Mickey Loomis & head coach Sean Payton both know, if the Black & Gold is to play in a Super Bowl anytime soon, they'll have to stand toe to toe with at least one of those teams. That means getting younger and tougher on offense.
