Bandwagon fans..

Updated Jan 13, 2010 10:10 PM ET
I’ve always been wary of crowded bandwagons. When it comes to life, TV, music and especially when it comes to the NFL — I either want to be the first one on a bandwagon or never on it at all.

Cases in point — I’ve never been with a “cougar,” I don’t watch Lost and I don’t own any albums by Panic! at the Disco, TV on the Radio or whichever other four-word Brooklyn hipster band du jour that Pitchfork.com tells me I should be listening to.

When the Broncos started the 2009 season 6-0, they spent their bye week participating in just about every media opportunity available. I was skeptical. Defensive tackle Darrell Reid spent a day at ESPN doing the “Bristol circuit,” Josh McDaniels was everywhere and by the time we got to Week 8, the bandwagon had officially spilled over with salivating media members representing both coasts and everything in between.

Re: LOL..Bandwagon fans..

Saturday games
Arizona at New Orleans: Vegas has the over/under for this one at 57 points, which seems more like a Boise State-Nevada total than an NFL playoff game. But it could be pretty spot-on.

You know my thoughts on the Saints. They’re sitting pretty — well-rested, with home field throughout the playoffs and completely devoid of media attention. I haven’t heard a word about New Orleans since their Dec. 19 loss to Dallas. Fine with me. Give me Drew Brees, a functioning defense and Sean Payton with close to a month to prepare a game plan.

Kurt Warner’s a fine quarterback, and I loved what I saw out of youngsters Beanie Wells, Early Doucet and Steve Breaston last weekend. Alas, the dream ends on the carpet Saturday. The Pick: Saints 44, Cardinals 24
