It's over

Not the season. There's still a helluva lot of football to be played in 2007. I'm referring to the hype. The bandwagon is now empty. It's time to get serious and "Earn It," as they say in the commercials and on those new T-shirts.

The Saints will have to win about four or five in a row to get the buzz going again. I'm sorry, but serious Super Bowl contenders don't get beaten 41-10*, even to the Colts. Anyone thinking perhaps there was a reason Indy let Jason David walk?

I'm just glad this is Week 1 and not 10 or 12.

* Alright, I know the Super Bowl-winning Patriots of 2003 got beaten 31-0 by the lowly Bills in Week 1. But that's the Patriots, who have a talent for defying reason.
