I COMPLETELY agree with you Ian but unfortunately you have the same feelings as me so therefore the Saints are not going to win the Superbowl this year. I'll break it down with a previous post of mine:
"Here are my top 5 most hated teams
2. Any team with Brett Favre on it.
5. Chargers (I actually had to root for the Chargers yesterday by default . . *shudders*
2005 Steelers won the Superbowl
2006 Colts won the Super
2007 Giants won the Superbowl and ruined our perfect season
2008 Steelers won the Superbowl
2009 Now we have:
It looks like this will be another kick in the crotch season for ol' InRodWeRust. As if the offseason isn't bad enough this just adds salt to the wound. It looks like the odds are against them but I'm going to be the biggest Saints fan the next few weeks."
The last 4 Superbowls have been excruciating for me and I don't see my luck turning around this year either
The Vikings will crush the Saints and the Colts will crush the Jets therefore producing a crappy Superbowl outcome either way. And since having the Colts winning it all is slightly more nauseating than Favre winning it then that's what will happen.
