Pat Y exposes MSM propensity for trendiness

Kyle in Montgomery, Ala. writes: Do you have any idea why the Saints are getting so little respect in preseason projections? I can't remember a defending champ getting this little respect. Am I the only one who feels this way? In your opinion, what's the deal? Pat Yasinskas: No, you’re not the first New Orleans fan I’ve heard this from. But I’ve got a little problem with fans saying their team is getting no "respect’’ when it comes to predictions. People in the media throw out predictions because that’s their job. They’re not doing it to respect or disrespect anybody -- at least not in most cases. In the case of defending Super Bowl champions, I’d guess and say a lot of media members just like to be trendy and go with somebody new. As I often say, I don’t put much stock in predictions. But you’re going to see my predictions for the season very soon and, whatever they might be worth, I’ll throw you a hint and say I think you’ll like the "respect’’ I’m showing the Saints.

Drew Brees, turnover-creating defense are New Orleans Saints' keys to Super Bowl repeat

If Gregg Williams' defense doesn't come close to creating ''turnover chaos'' in opponents, as was the case in '09, chances of repeating, as the cliché goes, are slim and none. T.-P.
