Do you sense that feeling in the air? It's a little bit joyous and a little bit nervous. My friends, that's what we call hope, and as we head into a new era for the New Orleans Saints, we still have it for at least a few more months.

Driving the news: The NFL just released its full season schedule.

What we're watching: In case you've been living with a Schwegmann's bag over your head the last couple of seasons, the biggest thing to know is that the Saints have a new-to-us quarterback in the form of Derek Carr.

  • The four-time Pro Bowler comes to New Orleans from the Las Vegas Raiders, and even Drew Brees is hopeful he'll turn things around.
