Madden NFL 15 New Orleans Saints Team Breakdown

The New Orleans Saints always have a dangerous offense in Madden but this year, they actually have a fairly good defense to go along with it.  Madden 15 should be a pretty good year for the Saints.

We have the full team breakdown below.

Team: New Orleans Saints

Offensive Strategy: Stay balanced.  The temptation many will face with the Saints is to throw the ball 80% of the time because the Saints have so many weapons.  Make sure to run the ball every now and then to keep the defense honest.  That will make your passing game even more dangerous.

Defensive Strategy: Get some interceptions.  The Saints 3 absolute Madden studs in their secondary.  If you can get 2 or 3 interceptions per game, you should have no problem winning with the Saints’ dangerous offense.

Strengths: The passing game.  Drew Brees is a top 5 quarterback, Jimmy Graham is the top tight end in Madden 15, and the wide receivers are always tough to deal with.  It shouldn’t be hard to move the ball with the Saints.

Weaknesses: Front 7.  The New Orleans Saints secondary is going to be very dangerous with their new additions.  However, there is still a little to be desired from the front 7 in Madden 15.

Impact Players: QB Drew Brees, RB Pierre Thomas, WR Marques Colston, WR Brandin Cooks, TE Jimmy Graham, DE Cameron Jordan, MLB Curtis Lofton, ROLB Parys Haralson, CB Champ Bailey, SS Kenny Vacaro, FS Jairus Byrd

Key Newcomers: WR Brandin Cooks, DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, FS Jairus Byrd, CB Champ Bailey

Additional Remarks: The New Orleans Saints may not be a top 5 team in Madden 15, but they are absolutely a top 10 team.

  1. How can their weakness be the front 7? Their defense was known for getting pressure on the qb last year and we have Cam Jordan a Pro Bowler and Junior Galette is a real good pass rusher too.

    1. Thanks for your comment TylerR22. What would you consider the Saints weaknesses to be?

      1. With Cam Jordan coming in at #5 with a 93 OVR.. I doubt the front 7 is their weakness, Junior Gallette deserves a 93 as well, but I’d be surprised if he gets anything lower than a 88 OVR.
        The Saints weakness is ONLY their special teams. Mediocre at best..

  2. Weaknesses are definteley the secondary and the receiving core. Both were strengthened in the offseason. Still remains to be seen if the new signings and draft picks will perform.

  3. “Galette admitted Saturday that it can only help him & Jordan if anyone is still underestimating them after they became the only duo in the NFL with 12 sacks apiece last season”. -ESPN

    So front 7 are definitely not a weakness…

  4. I think my saints always been underrated our defense better in NFL than the game actually we have know credit on the game
