I was really hoping for a Vikings win but it should be a great SB this year.....

I am a Colts fan and a guy at work who is from NO and I were joking around about a Colts/Saints SB at the .....who knew?

I really hate it when a hard fought game comes down to a refs call. Let the players decide the game.

Game should have been called for sheer ugliness.

Vikings had 6 or 7 fumbles and 2 picks.

I have to disagree. The officials won in OT. The bogus pass interference call on Leber and the bogus catch were both official gifts to make sure the number one seed won.

Other than that, the game was a barn burner! 4 quarters of good football decided by the refereeing crew in OT.

The Vikings made so many mistakes, but the last time the vikings had the ball, were the worst three plays I’ve ever seen. Sorry play calling, a penalty for 12 men in the huddle and Farve’s interception.

Terrible play calling and a forced play by Brett.

I hope the Saints can live with themselves... They know that last pass interference call was completely bogus. That was an un-catchable pass if I ever saw one. I sincerely hope the official that made it gets pulled from the league. You can't make mistakes like that in a playoff game.

I'll take some solace from a) being a Steelers fan anyway; b) the fact that the Colts will hand the Saints their backsides in the big game. The Saints get 5 turnovers and have to got to OT to win with bogus calls? They are going to get crushed.

Will Favre hang it up? Two NFC championship games lost on a Favre interception (Green Bay vs. New York, and today), not to mention getting the tar kicked out of him physically by the Saints. He’ll be sore tomorrow.

You are right - it should never have gone to OT.

But that doesn’t make up for the bullstuff officiating.

The refs ought to be banned from officiating after that string of garbage calls.

Favre will be sore tomorrow because he was mugged in New Orleans.

No surprise there, I guess.

Pity.

I've been watching pro football for over 30 years and this is the first time that the 2 teams I've rooted for most have ended up in the Super Bowl. Now I don't know who to root for.

I'd like to see New Orleans win because it would be a shot in the arm (although a small one) for that city. On the other hand I'm a big Peyton Manning fan. I'll figure this out by game time.

As a Lions fan I have to look at the bright side. The last two NFC champs were two of the three remaining NFC teams that had never made the Super Bowl. So the Lions have to win it next season.

Blatant. Bad as it was, it wasn't just about ensuring the #1 seed. It's the story. They "deserve" it because of Katrina. It's always been about Katrina. Cue up the devastation and misery video with gratuitous Bush jabs and run it on an endless loop. The media will be intolerable for the next 2 weeks.

“there were 2 teams that wanted to win and when that happens, only 1 team can win.”- famous Denny Green quote

I was rooting for Purple Moses, but when you cough up the ball 7 times, even the best defense can’t win it for you.

Poor brett. Green Bay karma bit him in the ass.

Ted Thompson is totally vindicated for trading the redneck. Same result two years later.

Well maybe the Katrina stuff will be offset by the fact that both teams have Haitian-born players, Vilma and Garcon.

I agree..thats about 4 playoff games that idiot has thrown away. He never could stop from pulling the trigger.

I am glad he left GB. To get that close and then throw it away is..

One of the STUPIDEST time management folderoos in professional football as demonstrated by a catatonic Vikings offense in the last minute and change of regulation time.

I really don’t care who won but the Vikings head coach and offensive coordinator need to be looking for work at this moment.

Just plain stoopid!

Why is everyone equating the team with the city's liberal politics?

The Saints have nothing to do with the fact that NOLA is a corrupt Dem sewer.

You probably have a shot. Minn will be struggling with a new QB, Chicago will be a non-factor, GB will play hard but fall just short again. Could be Detroit’s year in their division.

Look at it this way: Nagin, Landrieu, and William "I always store cash in my freezer" Jefferson. Does that help?

My whole family was having a blast watching this great game. The the refs determined the winner with back-to-back bad calls. What a waste of a good game.

Neither of the teams I wanted to see win succeeded today, but both of the teams I thought would win did.

I think it will be an excellent Superbowl. I just want to see a hard fought well played close game.
