Some area sports commentators were kind enough to offer their takes on the 2010 season:
Mike Detillier, college football expert, WWL 870 AM contributor and SaintsReport writer:
The Saints to win the division with an 11-5 record, beating out the Falcons, who I have with a 10-6 mark..Saints win the NFC South championship.... the Carolina Panthers with an 8-8 mark and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a 4-12 mark..the Saints to play the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championshio game and for the Saints to then play the New York Jets in the Super Bowl...Saints Two-Dat.. Sains beat Jets in Super Bowl.
