In the first installment of a continuing series on the NFL, Tom White and I will discuss our favorite teams – you know who – they met in the Super Bowl last year!  I will discuss the Saints (did you think I’d take the Colts?) and Tom’ll do the Colts.

The Saints played the Vikings in a reprise of the NFC Championship game.  Yes Brett Favre threw an interception (although not with the same results) and yes the Saints won again.  I actually thought the Vikings would win this game as it was a meaningless rematch that the Vikings would be more up for.  However, the Saints took the opening drive for a touchdown and it looked like a slaughter was in the making.  The Vikings did tighten up and had a 9-7 lead at halftime.  The Saints scored one more touchdown and then played the clock brilliantly for the win.  Brett Favre was sound in the QB spot; so was Drew Brees.  I thought the introductory interview about how Brees wanted to move to the Big Easy to help out in its revival was revealing.  I still believe that Brees could be in politics – maybe even Governor Jindal’s successor.  But let’s win another Super Bowl first.

It wasn’t a pretty win; the Saints need more scoring.  But the defense was sounder than I expected.  I think it’ll be a good year.  Let’s see what the Colts do, Tom!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
