I make my NFL picks every week in Sunday's paper. Since there's a game tonight, I probably ought to make my pick now.
New Orleans looked torn and frayed by the end of the 2010 season. Running backs were injured, the defense was shoddy and the Saints lost in the playoffs to lowly Seattle.
But the running game, which was so good two seasons ago, is back. The Saints made some dazzling off-season acquisitions. They're geared up and ready to go.
They go to Green Bay to play the Super Bowl champion Packers, the only team confident enough to disdain player-led off-season workouts. They were tired.
The Packers are healthier than they were late last season.
You want to pick against them?
Have at it.
I can't find a reason to.
Green Bay 33, New Orleans 28.
