New Orleans Saints at New York Giants
The Saints lit up the Giants last season in New Orleans and the Saints appeared to be a total mismatch. But the Saints have to go to New York in this one. But this time they will play outdoors late in the season, a big difference from the previous meeting. It's Brees and that passing game against a good Giants front. That's always fun.
Then, there is the Drew Brees saga.
There is also one person who ought to be Brees’ PR person or agent, and he also happens to write for CBSSports. Gregg Doyell opines that Drew Brees is one-of-a-kind, both on and off the field. He says the Saints should “pay the man” and that he is the only thing the Saints have going for them, given Bountygate.
With Brees being in what some consider to be a foolish contract dispute with the Saints and the team in turmoil given the suspensions of the headcoach, the general manager and the assistant coach (plus, undisclosed defensive players), Doyel joins the chorus of many saints fans who simply want something positive to happen for the Saints.
In one respect, it is almost akin to the New Orleans Saints of days-gone-by, when the city and the team just wanted one good thing to happen---a win to lift them from being dead last in the NFL standings.
HOW will the NFL monitor Sean Payton and ensure he doesn't violate the terms of his suspension? It will be impossible to prevent Payton form communicating with Drew Brees or Joe Vitt or Mickey Loomis whenever they want as long as filmmaker Sean Pamphilon isn't around to record
SOME hither, others yon: From CBSSports.com: "In the eyes of many, the Saints are set up for a long season. Whatever happens in 2012, however good the season could theoretically go for the Saints, Joe Pitt's impact will be marginalized by his six-game suspension. But our suspicion is the Saints 2012 season won't go that well at all, which we suspect would suit Sean Payton just fine. He wants to return in April 2013 as a martyr and a white knight...Keep in mind Vitt is not head coach material."...

The class didn't include one five-star recruit. It's early, but Miles is doing all he can to avoid a repeat of the 2012 disappointment.
