LOL...I am a Pats fan, and at the noisy party I was at we were all rooting ferociously for the Saints...

This isn’t that we “hate” the Colts, to a man (and woman) every single one of us recognized the quality of the Colts, and the superlative quarterback that Peyton Manning is...we give that team their due, because they deserve it.

But it was fun to root for the Saints.

I had bad luck...I was on call (I work at a hospital) and I got paged right before the beginning of the second half, so as I went out to my car to get my computer, I hear the house erupt from about fifty yards away! (Missed the onside kick!)

Then, I got paged again and had to go into another room to talk, and I hear the party roar again...missed the interception!

Hoo boy!

Well, congrats to your Saints! That was a fun game to watch!

Well, I didn't really have a dog in the fight (as a Giants fan I was rooting for Eli's brother), but I did win my bet since I picked NO to lose, but cover; I also had the under (you can check a very early comment of mine on this thread to verify these points).

It was a good game (not great like the Giants-Pats or the Titans-Rams), the refs were not in it, so all in all a good time. My G-men have won the Bowl 3 times, and you guys ain't the Aints anymore. Congrats to you and who dat? nation!

The biggest disappointment were the commercials.

The Saints were the benefactors of wrong penalty calls against the Colts, blown penalty calls that didn't go against the Saints, a refereeing staff that was ordered to find anyway to help the Saints win and the onsite kick which I call the "Low Blow" call.

The Saints were afraid they weren't going to be able to beat the Colts the old fashioned way so they had to call a play that reeks of cowardice and spite.

True, the Colts dropped too many passes but if the Saints had played honorably they wouldn't have won. I have no love for the Saints and even less for their coach, YOU COWARD!

Peyton is getting a lot of flak for running off the field without congratulating the Saints players.

Personally I don’t have a problem with it, it’s the winning team’s moment, and let them have the stage. They don’t have the traditional hand-shaking like they do in the NHL.

Thing is every Colts game is always put totally on Peyton. Totally. The Saints also have Bush and their quick defense. Other teams have power running backs or cream of the crop elite defenses.

But Peyton is always carrying the team. He is the only reason they were at the SB...or even in the playoffs for that matter. He is the true reigning MVP in professional football.

So Indy fans (and the media) can be glad for Peyton instead of upset. Without him, no way would they have been in the SB. He does what no other QB has to do.

Can we do it again next year? Would be great, but I don’t want to be greedy.

Nonsense.

I have no love for the Saints and even less for their coach, YOU COWARD!

I'm not sure that I would call an on sides kick to open the 3rd Quarter as an act of cowardliness.

However, I might call Peyton's crying after he threw the game winning interception as an act of cowardliness and I would say that not shaking hands with Saints players after the game was an act of cowardliness.

BTW-I watched Peyton play high school ball and when he was a kid I would often see him around our neighborhood. And yes, he was a good kid.

IMHO the game was lost late in the second quarter when Indy couldn’t convert on third down deep in their territory. If only they convert, at the very least they run out the clock and go into the locker room up 10-3. Instead, the Saints get the ball back in great field position and kick the FG and make it 10-6.

If it’s 10-3, I don’t know if they do the onsides kick.

You believe that?

Saints won because Sean Payton is a coward.

I guess the do not play ball up in Indiana like we do down here in Texas and Louisiana.

We play to win and on sides kicks and retuning interceptions for touchdowns while the other team's star QB is in tears is part of the game.

I can understand Peyton's reasoning here:

"I certainly know how it was three years ago when we won," Manning said. "There's not much consolation for the guys who didn't win. There's the stage being set up and the celebration. It's time for the Saints to celebrate. It's their field.

"I certainly congratulate all their players and the Saints organization. I'll speak to Drew and Sean. They deserve all the credit."

I will say, I don't like the on-field presentation of the Lombardi Trophy, I preferred it when the trophy was presented in the Locker room, I think that's probably one of the reasons players don't congratulate each other on the field as much, because they have to get out of the way for the presentation.

Yeah, that was big.

However, if the Saints would have ost that on sides kick, the Saints would have likely lost and Sean Payton would be wearing cement shoes on the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain.

The man has a set on him.

A “genius” call if the Colts had attempted an OSK, right pctech?

The Peyton to Porter pass was outstanding.

At least Peyton had it half right when he threw it to the former IU player.

The Colts were out coached and out played.

But you guys were leading at the half, so you have that going for you.

Been around a few years but worth resurrecting in light of Sundays game.

A Cajun who died went to hell. The devil assigned him the usual punishment...put him in the mass pit where the heat was melting others. The devil came back sometime later surprised to find the Cajun just sitting around, not even misting, much less sweating. "How come you're not so much as sweating here where everyone else is screaming for relief from the heat?"

The Cajun laughed and said, "Man, I was raised in the bayous of Sout Looziana. Dis ain't nothin' but May in Morgan City to me!"

The devil decided to really put the Cajun through it. He put him in a sealed off cave in the pit with open blazes and four extra furnaces blasting. When he came back, days later, the Cajun was sitting pretty, had barely begun to bead up with sweat. The devil was outraged. "How is this possible!? You should be melted to a shrieking puddle in these conditions!."

The Cajun laughed even harder than before. "Hey, man! I done tole you. I was raised in Sout Looziana. You tink dis is heat?! Dis ain't nothin' but August in Cow Island !"

So the devil thought, 'Alright, a little reverse ought to do the trick.' He put the Cajun into a corner of hell where no heat ever reached. It was freezing and to add to the Cajun's misery, he added massive icebergs and blasting frozen air. When he returned, the Cajun was shivering, ice hung from every part of him but he was grinning like it was Christmas.

Exasperated, the devil asked "HOW!? How is it possible?! You're impervious to heat and here you sit in conditions you can't be used to...freezing cold and yet you're happier than if you were in heaven. WHY?!"

The Cajun kept grinning and asked, "Don't dis mean de Saints won da Super Bowl?

Last night I had to explain to my kid that that It was not until I was 24 when the Saints had their first winning season. He looked at me like I was insane.

I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans on a conference 2 years ago.

Greatest time I have ever had. Wonderful people. Even the opportunistic supposedly destitute people had a great attitude while asking me for money.

I gave it to them with less red tape than they would have to go through to get it from Mayor Nagin or the feds.

Libertarian all the way around. I almost felt like a free man for 4 days. You can walk around the streets with a can of beer. Try that anywhere else in America and they will give you a summons and/or throw you in the hoosegow.

Congratulations Saints and New Orleans. You deserve it.

LOL.

Odds are on Colts winning the SB in 2011.

Bet the Jets change those odds next year for Peyton.

Not just that Super Bowl win but that one picture is going to make Drew lots of money for endorsing products.

Lots of cash.
