I don't really have a problem with these analysts picking the Saints. They have a better record Their QB is an MVP candidate They have won six games in a row They are undefeated at home Realistically, they are the favourites in this matchup and that's fine. What really bothers me is their reactions after this game. If the Saints win, everyone will be tooting their own horns and talking about how the Saints are the only team that could beat the Packers. If we win, then all the talk will be about how the Saints either shot themselves in the foot or didn't play their best game. They will start questioning if the Saints can win the big game, but there will be very few people who talk about how well we played and/or the threat that the Falcons pose to the rest of the NFC.
