Saints keep marching


Brett Favre is a lame duck and the entire league knows it. Peyton Manning is more mobile than Favre right now. Favre also doesn't have Sidney Rice to throw the ball to for quite some time.

Adrian Peterson will have a big day, because the Saints will be aiming for the kill shot at Favre all day long. We will also get to see if A.D. has fixed his fumbling problem as well, because the Saints will come a stripping(pause). The Saints bend but don't break defense will be much improved this season. Not having Darren Sharper or Clint Ingram for the first six games will hurt, but they should be able to handle the Vikings just fine.

Drew Brees is going to finally make his ascension into Peyton Manning and Tom Brady's appreciation bracket this year. He's gonna start by carving up a Vikings secondary with an aging Antione Winfield and no Cedric Griffin at corner. As with the new age NFL, Brees' passing will open up the running lanes for Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas.

It's going to be a long year for the Vikings. Have you seen the first half of their schedule? It's murderers' row! In order, they play the Saints, Dolphins, Lions, Jets, Cowboys, Packers, and Patriots. I love Brett Favre, but if he makes it out of that schedule alive with everyone and their mama gunning for his ankle, then Jim Brown is his papa and Dick Butkus is his Godfather.

The Saints are going to keep on marching. They are much improved on the defense and the offense is one year better. Playoff bound? Yes. Super Bowl repeat? Nope. No team has won back to back Super Bowl titles since the Cowboys in '92 and '93. The Saints are nice, but not that nice.
