I can't wait for Sunday.
And, it's not because one of the best teams in the NFL travels to take on one of the hottest teams in the NFL.
I live in the Bay Area and all you hear on sports-talk radio is who should be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers? Is Alex Smith done? etc.
I understand if you talk about it on Tuesday, the day after Colin Kaepernick destroyed one of the best defenses in the NFL. But, to continually talk about it all day and all night for the entire week is too much.
So instead of telling you who should be the starting quarterback for San Francisco, let's actually dissect one of the best games on Sunday.
The New Orleans Saints started the season 0-4 and everyone was writing them off. Everyone had a good reason to, 183 teams have started 0-4 since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970, and only the 1992 San Diego Chargers made the playoffs. Statistically the Saints have a 0.005% chance at making the playoffs.
Luckily for the Saints, they don't care about stats and the past.
