So far I have called 7 out of 10 of the playoff games which is pretty good for me. I would have done better if I had gone with the facts rather than my hopes. (I had hoped the Ravens would knock the Colts out.)
This leaves me with a dilemma for me at the Super Bowl. I do not hate the Colts like I do some teams (Patriots, Steelers, and the Eagles) but I do like to pull for the under dogs. Payton Manning is a great guy and probably the best quarterback in football. The Colts are everyone's favorite to win and they have won it before.
The Saints have been a door mat in the NFL for decades, how old are they? That is how long they have been a door mat. I remember Saint fans wearing paper bags. I remember when people in New Orleans were not going to have sex until the Saints could score a touch down (nobody was going to score until the Saints did!) - that was a long dry spell some people.
So I am routing for the Saints, but honestly the Colts should win it. The only chance New Orleans has is getting to Manning early and dinging him good. Remember all those great shots on Farve and then the cameras going to his wife as she covered his face. Manning is a smart man and will adapt, he can read a blitz and this game will not be in New Orleans domed home. Manning is younger than Farve and can probably take the hits a little better.
To win the Saints need to put Manning out of the game or put some big hurt on him in the first half.
Have fun and enjoy the game.
