After writing this article Wednesday about the nine reasons the Saints have a chance to win the Super Bowl—and getting mostly positive responses back from readers—I have to be the bad guy now. Just like the cop who shuts down the party, I am the innocent evil one.
So, all the love I was getting earlier this week I fully expect to be taken away, and in its place I'm sure hate mail will pour from the skies as if it were God’s wrath manifested upon me. I'm mentally preparing as I write this. Come on, bring it! I'm game!
Here is what I really believe, that there are six players on this particular Saints team who are overrated and could easily be replaced with little to no difference in production at their positions. In fact, in some cases the team may actually be better with certain players taking the others' spots.
Bring on the hate mail. I want it more than anything in the world. Let’s go!
