Saints Predictions: Week 1


We all know the Saints play the Superbowl champion Colts tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. to begin the 2007 NFL season. This is possibly the most highly anticipated moment of the year so far for New Orleanians, I’m sure the streets will be eerily quiet and the sky a strange hue, ionized by the raging ecstacy of the who dat nation. Most everyone in the city will have bitten off their fingernails and ground the enamel from their teeth by kickoff time. Many will return to their jobs on Friday without the luxury of a voice.

As for the game itself, I would love to offer a gory, hyperboled prediction but I think everyone knows the Colts are very formidable opponents and that we don’t want to go jinxing things this early in the season. Therefore, I will just offer this conservative and concise prediction: Saints win by 10 points; Bush and Brees both have 200+ yard games. Peyton Manning, overcome by emotion, hometown pride, and possibly a concussion, retires from football during a post-game press conference. He rescinds this announcement the following day. Drunken Saints fans maraud local supermarkets, hoarding the collectable limited edition “Who Dat” bags of Zapp’s.

    If they don’t turn this around fast, it’s going to be a long, painful 15 more games.
