Well- if the "top football fan expert" from Perham, MN says the Vikings will win, then the Saints might as well not even show up.[/sarcasm]

Here's a preview of what your 40-year-old QB can expect tonight:

Difference is, Vikings receivers would be open, the line would block the rush, and Favre would complete a pass.

Dat's Who!

AintÂ’s can't even carry the Vikings Jocks, much less the whole subterranean city of New Orleans.

Wow!! "They'll be playing with the weight of the entire Gulf Coast region on their collective shoulders. "? Talk about being melodramatic!! By your logic if the Saints lose, the "entire" area will cease to exist. Stop it! Win or lose nothing changes. When did the Pioneer Press move to New Orleans? This is the second article in the last couple of days that tried to make us Viking fans feel bad for New Orleans.It didn't work for me. This is FOOTBALL,nothing more,nothing less.While I sympathize with the people of the New Orleans area,I hope the Vikings hand the Saints their rear ends on a platter.Please stop trying to place such importance on a GAME!!

Well i lived here for only three years but from the Gulf coast.Truth be told most folks just don't care much for that New oreans city. It's got too many interests that really don't represent the area. I ain't gonna mention who or anything. But for NFL we sort like the Saints but never sure if they will be around next year. But we love our football, LSU and Ole Miss brings home the gravy. so i am pulling for Brett and the Vikings...score 21-14...Vikes win

Well we went out to eat this morning and then stopped at Walmart. Saints T-shirts and jerseys were everywhere. My son wore a Viking jersey to McDonalds an nearly got run out of the place the other day.

The papers have full page spreads and huge headlines, along with pull out sections.

My take is that they are looking ahead to the Superbowl way too much. Having said that, the Vikings will lose some offensive momentum from crowd noise and false starts. Hopefully, they can overcome the built in deficit. I think they can. The key is pressure on Brees.

These story lines are getting old. I don't recall the same sympathy offered when Pittsburgh was hurting from the downturn in the steel industry 20 years ago or better. I don't recall a lot of sympathy for Detroit after the mess they got into. So what's the point? I wish New Orleans much success in rebuilding their city. I also hope the Vikings kick the snot out of them tonight. The two viewpoints are mutually exclusive. So why dredge it up?
