Very Important! Need to know! When do they start with "The Big Game" commercials?

Not kidding - the ladies (who could care less about the game itself) were out for the shuttle launch (scrubbed) early this am and need a pre-game nap ... ;-)

LOL. I think that graph is applicable to politics as well.

I have a question that maybe someone can answer. If the Saints win today they will have defeated 3 consecutive Hall Of Fame QB’s. Has that ever happened before in one playoff season.

How does a team play a Hall of Fame quarterback? Isn't one of the requirements that they be retired from the game?

Well, FWIW, I pick the Colts to win, but not cover. Also, many nervous turnovers, so take the under. Even if I am totally wrong, I just hope it's a great game

This will come down to the last two minutes. Decided by a last second FG or a late turnover. It is really a pick em. I would take the points, most likely a 1-3 point game.

I think the turnover battle will determine the winner.

Yep, like it’s easy to answer before the next play is run.

I noticed during many SBs that the announcers will subtly dumb down their dialogue to make the game more accessible to novice viewers. It’s kind of annoying, but whatever.

I have Colts 5 and Saints 2 boxes in my pool.

Those are the same numbers I get in a pool. Occasionally an 8 or a 6 thrown in.

I agree. This is the most offensive hyped Super Bowl in a long time...probably since Montana versus Marino.

I don’t understand why they don’t move the game to Saturday night if they want to start it so late. People could enjoy their parties a whole lot more if they weren’t worried about getting up for work or getting their kids to school the next morning.

You mean analysis like....

"Now see the offensive line grabbed the jersey of the defender and that's a penalty."

GRRRR.

I am in complete agreement with your picks, however for those with a financial stake on the over(57)in the game, I need more points thank you.

Like 34-27, for instance.....

Nor do I. Normally networks prefer Sunday to Saturday night because more folks are likely to be home but I think in the case of the Super Bowl you don't have to worry about that factor.

I'm surprised he didn't force himself into the booth and do some play by play calling.

Your “nickel and dime package” is actually two different defensive schemes...Nickel package adds an extra defensive back removing a linebacker making 5 defensive backs, hence the “nickel”.

the dime package removes another LB and adds another DB making 6 defensive backs...

There is actually a “quarter” package” that has 8...yes, EIGHT defensive backs (FS’s and CB’s) in a prevent mode..Only three rushing linemen...

For me, the most interesting piece of this game will be how will the Colts deal with the relentless blitz of the Saints? Will they cross them up with misdirection running plays, draws and screens, or just run a west coast-type passing offense?

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

the Saints need to try to stay a step ahead of manning. Once he figures out what they are doing on defense, he will make his necessary adjustments. At that point, the Saints need to change their tendencies so he doesnt get in a comfort zone.

If they stay in the same scheme, he’ll start picking them apart.
