Saints quarterback Drew Brees repeated his pick of the Packers for Super Bowl XLV Saturday morning, this time drawing a yelp of joy from former Packers great Bart Starr’s wife, Cherry.

Brees did offer caveats and said both teams deserved it. If Pittsburgh’s powerful running game gets in motion the Steelers could control the clock and the game, he noted, and obviously turnovers could tilt the balance quickly in one team’s favor.

But on the whole he gave the edge to the Packers, “in a clean game.”
