Chicago Sports Writer Picks SAINTS
From today's Chicago Sun Times:

Predicting the outcome: Bears vs. Saints

January 15, 2007
BY NEIL HAYES Staff Reporter

Whether it's knocking the ball out of Drew Brees' hand, stripping a ball carrier and recovering the fumble or intercepting errant passes, the Bears must create turnovers like they did earlier in the season to give themselves a better chance of defeating the Saints in Sunday's NFC Championship Game and advancing to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1985 season.
A turnover edge will greatly improve their chances. Otherwise, if you put a gun to my head -- and there are plenty of Bears fans who might like to -- I'd have to make what is sure to be an unpopular prediction: Saints 24, Bears 17.

I like the sound of this. Even the sports guys in Chicago know that the odds are not in their favor.

It seems like sportscasters and writers everywhere are finally giving our SAINTS the respect they deserve.

Pretty much they are. At least on the NFL channel on Sirius. Adam Schien, who hosts the Afternoon Blitz with Salomon Wilcox thinks our offense is just going to be too much for them and that since no one knows what type of Rex will show up, the good rex, bad rex, lucky rex etc.,hes leaning heavily towards us. Though he won't make his final picks until Fri. evening. Most of the other hosts on there are also saying we should win. I believe they are right.
