The Saints were Super Bowl champs in 2009 right? Guess what ranked running game they had last year? 6th. Care to guess what ranked running game they had in 07 and 08 when they won 7 and 8 games?? They had the 28th ranked running game both of those seasons leading up to 2009. In 07 and 08, Brees had 35 interceptions. In 2009 with the running game, he only threw 11.
