Two of ESPN's best-known personalities picked the Saints to get to Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona, in February. But only one of them thinks highly enough of the Saints to pick them as the champions of the NFL.
Mike Greenberg, co-host of "Mike & Mike in the Morning," declared Thursday on Twitter, "I'm picking the #Saints to win Super Bowl 49. #WhoDatNation." He also said Saints quarterback Drew Brees would emerge as the NFL's offensive Most Valuable Player.
ESPN on Thursday noted Brees ranks first in passing yards, throwing touchdowns and completion percentage since arriving in New Orleans in 2006.
Meanwhile, "First Take" co-host Steven A. Smith predicted Thursday the Saints would make the big game to only lose to the New England Patriots.
If that prediction came true and assuming everything went to plan for New England, it'd mark the fourth time quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick won the Super Bowl since the 2001 season. It'd also be the second time New England beat the Saints in three tries since coach Sean Payton took charge of the Saints in 2006.
How far off the mark is Smith or Greenberg? Is either right? Sound off in the comments!
