The Saints have become a perennial playoff threat and Super Bowl champion, but do years of ineptitude under owner Tom Benson make him one of the league’s worst?
According to cover32, yes.
Benson ranks in as the 24th best owner in the league, meaning he’s worse than 75 percent of NFL owners. I understand that years of poor choices can’t be completely forgotten, but how can a man that helped turned around the franchise and brought a Super Bowl to New Orleans be considered the ninth worst owner in the league?
In my mind, based on his track-record over the last decade Benson belongs in the top half of the league’s owners (maybe not very high in the top half, but there).
