METAIRIE Ė The New Orleans Saints are pretty boring Super Bowl champions, and thatís a good thing.

Training camp has come and gone and all the Saints did for 22 days was prepare themselves to defend their NFL title.

They didnít have a diva who couldnít decide if he wanted to play quarterback or play Prince Hamlet (as the Vikings did).

Tuesday practice quotes
Notebook: Special teams works overtime
They didnít have an overpaid defensive lineman who couldnít pass a conditioning test for several days and then after he passed it, claimed to have a physical ailment that his coach said he knew nothing about (as the Redskins did).

They didnít have a pair of blowhard wide receivers who spent more time on self-indulgent tweeting than they did scoring touchdowns (as the Bengals did).

They didnít have a rookie who bucked NFL tradition by refusing to carry veteransí equipment (as the Cowboys did).

No, the Super Bowl XLIV champions had all their players in camp on day one, in shape, focused on their work, and respectful of each other. Ho-hum.

No mention of the Derelle Revis holdout? Stuff like that burns my beans just as bad as what Favre does every year.

"The silliness and hyperbole that tend to dominate the national headlines during the offseason and training camp are usually linked to attention whores and big-market franchises that are located in the Northeast or who have otherwise fascinated ESPN.

Even as Super Bowl champions, neither the Saints franchise nor any of their players have attained that status. Letís hope they never do."



Les East must read this board.
We've been saying this for a long time.

Thankful we didn't make bad decisions this offseason, mainly trading for Fat Albert when it looked like it was on the table. Somebody did their homework on that one. Also, we didn't overpay Sharper and PT. Love em', but their success was more than not due to exceptional play of others. Bush I say is worth every penny because he can do almost anything good. I'm willing to bet he'd be a decent QB in a pinch. There just aren't any other players out there that can match him across the board.
