  1. You guys are quick to jump on the Saints bandwagon, while forgetting how dominate the Packers have been ALL SEASON LONG! They are going to repeat.

  2. I think the Lions can beat the Saints. Doesn't mean they will, but they have the offense to keep up.

  3. Stephen - Even YOU have to admit RIGHT NOW the Saints are the hottest team in the league. Yes, even hotter than the Packers.
