As much as im trying to not be biased here, I cant see the lions having enough at the moment. I reckon it'll be closer than most expect. 31-23 saints.

Nobody won anything yet.

I didn't say it wasn't possible, I said not in this play-off game. Each game is different. What went on at Lambeau has nothing to do with this game in the dome. Presumption is the mutha of all frick-up's.
Point of order - How the hell would the Greatest Show on Turf put up 50 on the Rams? Other than giving up 25 safteys, I suppose....

Correct.

Brees has 14 INT's this year. If the Lions can cause 2 more, you never know. Has to be in the gameplan. Rodgers has 6. Saints are favourites and for good reason but many a favourite has been taken close before, and many have been beaten.

Yes the Saints seem to be a trendy pick now the reg season has finished, but after what happened to the Saints in Seattle last season and in St Louis in wk 8 I can assure you the team won't get ahead of themselves.

Stop trying to make out the Packers are underdogs. Green Bay are the champs until someone beats them and they'll be favoured in every playoff game they have this season.

Your guys are the form team right now buddy, your favourites for the whole lot in every analyst's view and in any fan thats being paying attention for the last month or so. Don't fear it, embrace it. Your the team to beat no doubt.

Saints are definately looking good at the moment , but this game won't be the walkover
everyone seems to expect.
If Fairley's foot lasts more than the quarter it did last time these teams met , then our
O-line will be hard pushed, especially as Suh is playing this time.VDB is no slouch either
so I expect a lot more pressure on Brees.
Saints need to keep the Lions to FG's in the redzone or we could see another AZ-GB type
game with the the result hingeing on a turnover or penalty.

This message was brought to you by an always pessimistic Saints fan , but nowhere near
the level of nomoromo.
