The Saints have always been a good yet under the radar team in Madden NFL games. Look for the Madden 25 Saints to be in a fairly similar place.
Team: New Orleans Saints
Offensive Strategy: Smart Passing – The Saints have a top 5 passing qb in Drew Brees and all sorts of receiving options. Don’t limit yourself to just throwing deep or short. There are receiving threats at running back, wide receiver, and tight end. Mix it up and your opponents will struggle stopping you.
Defensive Strategy: Force turnovers. The drawback to using the Saints is that their defense is pretty awful. Your best bet is to try to force a turnover or 2 every game and handle your business on offense.
Impact Players: QB Drew Brees, RB Darren Sproles, TE Jimmy Graham, WR Marques Colston, LB Curtis Lofton, S Malcolm Jenkins
Key Newcomers: S Kenny Vaccaro
Biggest Strength: Offensive firepower. The Saints have very good players at all the offensive skill positions as it relates to Madden 25. Your opponent should never be able to key on just 1 or 2 guys.
Biggest Weakness: Defense. Most people who choose the Saints probably go into it knowing that their defense is a huge liability but feel comfortable enough lighting up the scoreboard for that not to matter. Nonetheless, be aware that this is not a very good Madden defense.
Rating: Above Average. The Saints high powered offense more than compensates for their lackluster defense. Nonetheless, this is not a team you want to play with against an elite level Madden 25 team like the 49ers.
Thanks for posting.
Although I think you should of added Keenan Lewis to the key newcomers part as he is a tood cornerback in which the Saints need and terron Armstrong as the Saints need a LT and this guy is big and athletic which is useful in madden.
Good additions Macaulay, there is always a player or 2 we miss. Both of those guys should have a decent impact this year for the Saints.
I love the Haters Our D will be just fine with Galette and Martez getting to the QB DLine with Jordan HICKS and Jenkins MLBs Vilma and Lofton K Lew and Greer and P rob in the slot and Jenkins and Vaccaro on the back end thats a top 15 defense
The Saints had one of the worst defenses ever by yards given up last year. It isn’t hating to take an objective look at the team.
That’s only cause they didn’t actually have a head coach. Let me see any other team try to even compare in that scenario. Its a shame the ratings guy is an apparent 49ers fan so I’m fully expecting them to get boned in the ratings. Heck they even got boned in ratings the year after they win the Superbowl…….
With the addition of Byrd and Bailey that comes with a roster update you can download or Madden 15, the Saints secondary goes from mediocre to first class. Unfortunately the departure of Sproles leaves the backfield lackluster, but in Madden 15 at least you can run all over a defense with anybody. My question to you guys is the best way to stop a run attack with the Saints. I know they will never be able to stop it like the Hawks or Niners, but I can only stop the run if I get lucky (hitting the right hole with a LB), while with the 49ers I stuff them in their tracks. Unfortunately the Niners secondary is terrible so I stopped playing with them, but otherwise great article and very accurate. (Hint: with a new roster, switch Cooks with Meachem as WR3, he drops a lot less passes and is better at breaking away.)
