Many people didn't give Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints a chance to beat and the Colts in this year's Super Bowl. The underdogs responded with a 14-point victory.

What might they have done in the other nine Super Bowls of the decade?
WhatIfSports.com set out to find the champion of all champions for the first 10 years of the new millennium, pitting each Super Bowl champion against every other 10,001 times. When all was said and done, it was the final champion of the decade that beat out all the rest.

Two months ago, few probably would have argued with the Saints ending up as the Team of the Decade. They were 13-0 and making a run at the first 19-0 season in NFL history behind an MVP-caliber season from Brees. A little over one month later many questioned whether New Orleans' defense could stop the likes of Manning. In the end, the defense was good enough, even making the biggest play of the game, and in the battle against all other Super Bowl champions since the turn of the century, the Saints follow suit.

Among the 10 teams, the Saints gave up the fourth most points per game. The other three giving up the most points -- the 2006 Colts, 2007 Giants and 2001 Patriots -- finished in the bottom three slots and only the Colts finished within a touchdown when it comes to points scored per game.

Behind Brees' arm, Reggie Bush's big-play prowess and their running back by committee, the Saints scored nearly 30 points per game against the other Super Bowl champions. And they beat those champions 63.4% of the time, edging the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the Team of the Decade.

Re: Saints Picked NFL Team of the Decade.

Interesting...
Brees was the QB for the #1 rated best team (best of the best)
&
Brees was the QB for the #10 rated worst team (best of the worst)

Means nothing... just something that I noticed.
