It drove me crazy to see America’s love affair with the New Orleans Saints last January, when seemingly the whole nation wanted to see New Orleans beat the Bears in the NFC Championship game.?

According to my friends at CBFans.com, another 2007 preview guide is out, and like two others, they predict the Saints going to the Super Bowl to represent the NFC.? Yeah, we’ll see.? Hurricane Katrina was unfortunate, of course, but it doesn’t add 10 points to the Saints score in every game.
