Oh no. If the Saints win, they'll certainly get full credit for it. Frankly, I'm sick of the Colts. I'm tired of Peyton Manning with his "All-American" wholesome image, and the Colts themselves have no personality, no flair, no SOUL. I'm rooting for the Saints.

I can't hate on Manning. He's to me solid. You rarely EVER see him rattled in the pocket.

I love that Garcon dude. But what happened to the Colts running game?? Addai is just flat out average now.

Garcon was a straight beast yesterday. He was catching shit all over the place. Addai must be real banged up or something. He had a decent game yesterday, but still. I think Donald Brown is gonna get a lot more carries come next season.

Their running game has been absent ALL YEAR LONG. Matter of fact, [url=http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9616]Addai rushed for 80 yards yesterday[/url] and that's the BEST he's done all season. He bounces too much to the outside whereas Donald Brown will pound it inside and run hard through the tackles. Addai is better suited at being a Reggie Bush like combo back. Catch the short screen pass and dance around. Addai did catch 51 passes this year.

[color=darkred]That's what kills me about Addai, though. It it a durability question? I wouldn't have called him a "pounder" per se (this was one of my favorite LSU players, and he was a GOOD SEC back...meaning "not phenomenal"), but it seemed that he used to hit the hole faster and bust arm tackles for yards after contact. I don't see him doing that anymore.[/color]

It's hysteria, but mostly people are acting like they've been here before. It's a buzz, but not like three years ago. Curious fact. The Colts have been to the Super Bowl three times (once as the Baltimore Colts). All three times, the game has been in Miami.

The national buzz seems to be Go Saints! We are starting to turn into the Patriots. The Colts win with a team concept and they try to not like individuals hot dogging, doing trash talking, or acting like fools. Just like the '03 Patriots.

I've been around the stadium many times. That thing is HUGE when driving down the interstate. It was funny looking at this behemoth right next to the RCA Dome when both were up. I was like, "Where's the old dome? Oh that tiny thing?" I've still yet to go inside the building though. Colts tickets are tough to get and there hasn't been much else in terms of events for me to want to go see.

Those huge six glass window panes which span from Manning to the other player poster are also retractable.

[color=darkred]While there may be sentiment with the Saints, the line goes to the Colts. Nobody is talking like the Saints even have a CHANCE in this game.

Pope Peyton I will deliver the trophy to Indy and his legacy as the greatest of all time will be affirmed.[/color]

I can see the Colts as the faves but the Saints aren't smoke and mirrors. A + B doesn't equal C in sports but it's a little baffling since the Saints and Colts had several common opponents this year and they turned in comparable performances for the most part.

Both teams played the Jets, Patriots, Cardinals, Dolphins and Bills. The Colts struggled with the Pats while the Saints pounded them. The Saints struggled with the Rams while Indy blew them out. Both waxed the Cardinals in impressive fashion and both gutted out wins against Miami. The Bills game isn't a good comparison because Indy was resting starters when they faced them.

I think this game will be more competitive than some people expect.

They say the conundrum for Saints fans is whether to go Miami and get drunk or stay in New Orleans and get drunk. lmao

i've heard from more than one sports commentator/writer that "it's hard not to root for the saints." why? i'll root for the city, but i couldn't care less about the team. i like jim caldwell and i like peyton manning. i think all of petyon's accolades and laurels are well deserved. he's a beast.

LOL

We know that the Saints are going to score, but the question is, [b]can the Saints D stop the Colts from scoring[/b]? That's the entire game right there!

Also, Dwight Freeney either not 100 percent or flat out not playing might be huge for the Saints. Like I said before, I'm sick of the boring ass Colts, and I hope the Saints do down in Miami what my Bears SHOULD have done 3 years ago (had we had a decent fucking quarterback), which is win that damn Super Bowl.

Should be exciting.

[b]You heard it here first.

This game won't be close. I think N.O. comes in under-estimating the Colts defense (thinking they'll be able to throw however they want to) and put themselves in punting position or turnovers and will likely be down about two scores going into halftime.

I think Peyton Manning is going to have one of those [i]moments[/i] where he probably breaks a record or something. I think it'll be a good first half... but the game will be over before the 4th quarter.

Colts have too many weapons on offense, they don't give up the ball, they take advantage of other team mistakes, and that defense is better than people give it credit for.

The Dwight Freeney issue is an issue. But I think people are really sleeping on the skills of Raheem Brock. He's not a good of a pass rusher as Freeney, but dude can ball. Not to mention he probably has a big chip on his shoulder since folks are talking (or better yet, not talking about him) as if he's incapable of filling in.

I look for him to split time with Freeney and have a solid game that can put his name out there as a potential NFL starter.[/b]
