I don't think it would be good if the Saints were the favored team. Forget that they have done well over the past season when they were underdogs, I think there would be more pressure and it would be more difficult for them to get the job done. I think as the underdog, this suits this group of men well. They can bond and coalesce even more and come up with a "go for broke" game plan and not play careful. As far as I am concerned that's what it will take. 43 guys feeling like they can and will pull a major upset. It's nice to go into it knowing you have just such huge amount of talent and you are actually America's emotional favorite. And, they are playing for a cause- that is always a huge factor.
