Or, will the Saints run a lot of fake blitzes and lay back in zone coverage?

IMO...The saints will blitz somewhat less than they usually do.

That'd be my guess. The Jets showed what happens when you try to blitz Manning...it can work for a while but once he breaks down what the defense is doing then good night.

Quarters is actually a drinking "you get sh*tfaced if you lose" game.

Not that I'd know. I've (ahem) heard rumors.

Quarters is actually a drinking game.

Speaking of drinking games, I think I'll do a shot of tequila each time the Colts score and a shot of tequila each time the Saints score. As I'm doing the shooters, I'll go ahead and try to post. Could be interesting.

Thanks - you’re probably right but the “Superbowl Today” coverage starts at 2pm ET so I wasn’t sure ... they deserve a little rest but there’s snacks to be prepped! (Ducking now!) ;-)

Which Super Bowl does everyone think was the most exciting one ever from kickoff to finish? I make that stipulation because some Super Bowls have had some great endings but weren’t necessarily all that fun too watch say in the first half (the Rams-Titans as a classic example I think).

Nope, your right. I'm not one of those fans that blames the refs for every little thing, and I didn't have a dog in the Seahawks/Steelers bowl. But watching that game made me think that things were going on that had been discussed beforehand.

It is immediately obvious that when you go to a Super Bowl party, you spend too much time with the women folk.
Colts 20, Aints 10 ... and the Aints will get their touchdown via defense.

there is NO WAY the Colts hold the Saints to 10 points, but a defensive TD will happen.

127 posts, hey, what's the score?

Didja read the article in the WSJ a couple of weeks ago reporting a scientific study which calculated with a stopwatch that there is under 11 minutes of action in an American football's game?

The men are either eating, drinking, cursing or cheering.

The women carry on the background conversation.

And what are you picking on me for? I’m just sitting here, stirring the pot!

I'm in the process of getting a new cable provider. Fortunately I have the option of getting a dish just to haggle prices over with.

If the Vikings could pile up nearly 500 yards against that blitzing defense, on the Saints home field, I have complete confidence Peyton Manning will have little problem moving the ball up and down the field today.

That being said, here is my final analysis on today’s event, then again with my sterling 2-8 record against the spread in this year’s playoffs who would wanna listen? First and foremost, the officiating in this years playoffs have been absolutely brutal, especially in terms of the QB’s. What you will see today is a concerted effort to protect the QB’s on both sides.....

The Dwight Freeney injury is a concern, but was so 2 weeks ago when the Jets put up 17 points in the first half and then got shut down in the 2nd half. Obviously the Saints offense is miles ahead of the Jets and will have mulitple opportunities to score....
If the Saints d wants to try to beat Peyton up like they did Farve, good luck. After the first 3 penalties for RTP, that stops then and there. If they want to blitz, they’re being set up for the expected aerial show cause everyone knows PM will not get sacked or hurried regularily. One other thing you won’t see, the Saints getting extra possessions from turnovers like the Vikings gave them 2 weeks ago. The Colts just don’t turn the ball over, PERIOD!!!
Like I said 2 weeks ago, I was never convinced that Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon were that DAMN good, but guess what? They are that DAMN GOOD!!! If that’s because of Peyton, so what? They’ve shown up bigtime in the spotlight in the playoffs and will again today.

I’m sticking to 34-27 as this will be a very entertaining game. I don’t see many turnovers in the game, maybe 3 between the 2 teams. I see the Colts being up 2 TD’s with the Saints scoring late in the game to make the final spread...

I’m a rookie to this, being from New Orleans, and my hands have been shaking all day and my stomach is in knots. I can’t stand the tension of waiting. I thought I’d be ecstatic if my team ever made the Super Bowl, but instead I can’t wait for this thing to be over.

Alas, no Eminence Front today...

The Who’s 12-minute performance will consist of a “compact medley” of five songs — Baba O’Riley, Pinball Wizard, Tommy, Who Are You, and Won’t Get Fooled Again.

And for today only, the band is know as The Who Dat

Your reaction is perfectly normal. At 10:30 tonight you'll either be in absolute ecstasy or misery. Hope that helps. :)
