I've changed my mind. Brees will be the one retiring at halftime after the Vikings extend a healthy serving of payback in the first half. Little unnecessary roughness here, little givin' him the business there, little clothes line, little late hit. I think a hockey game might break out in the second half after Brees spends much of the first half picking his teeth and contact lenses from the SuperDome turf after Jared Allen knocks him into week six. But it won't be until late in the first half that Brees finally has had enough, after he takes a kitchen sink across the chest for a five yard loss.

"Who Dat always knocking me on my back?"
