SAINTS WIN THE SUPERBOWL 34-31!!!

The experts have spoken! But they didnt say that. All of them have the Colts. I'm just saying I disagree. I really don’t care what the experts say, because to me there is every sign that says that the Saints have as real-of a chance to beat the Colts as anyone in 2010.

The Indy Colts are DEFINITELY by far the most polished team in the NFL. They are probably the most consistent on offense and defense. I will be the first to tell you that I am an avid fan and I love to watch them play. The Saints though…are a quite formidable opponent, but they just can’t seem to gather support. Except the fact that wherever I have been and asked “Who do you think will win the Superbowl?”, there is always at least 1 person who thinks the Saints will win. WAIT!?!? That 1 person is usually me! Does that count?

I keep telling myself I’m talking nonsense and I’m just rooting for the underdog, but it’s more than that. The Saints are a really good team. I’m no fool. Do people forget that at one point they were said to be a possible 16-0 undefeated team? They were virtually unstoppable on offense and their defense was playing phenomenally forcing a ton of turnovers. Grant it, I’m no fool. Peyton is like an artist and the field is his canvas. Are you with me? It’s like with each touchdown drive he materializes his idea by knowing exactly how to perfectly manipulate each of his tools (i.e. D. Clark, J. Addai, P. Garcon, A. Collie, D. Brown) to come together at the end to produce a beautiful picture. You know what I mean?

Anyway, an article on ESPN.com, http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2009/news/story?id=4889508, has Tony Dungy saying that the Colts are going to have their rings ready on Sunday. He’s quoted saying, "I don't see how it's going to be close.” WOW. Coach Dungy, I understand you are riding with your former team, but let’s think about this. Yes, I agree, Minnesota in the NFC championship basically handed the Saints the game. On the same note the Saints tried to returned the favor! It was just an UGLY game, which happens. Something else I hear is how many points and yards the Vikes put up versus the Saints defense. People you’re forgetting that the Vikings offense is not average. They have a few guys you may have heard of, Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Sidney Rice, and Percy Harvin. So the to say the Saints defense isn’t good enough…uhhh not quite.

The Colts defense is good…Yes…the Saints offense is great (i.e. Brees, Colston, Meachem, Henderson, Thomas, Bush, Shockey, Bell) equals one heck of an offense. Oh and yes, I am calling for Reggie Bush to show up this game . Yeah and big Wide Receiver, M. Colston, is going to be a problem for the Colts DB. The Colts are in serious trouble if Dwight Freeney doesn’t play, regardless of what the experts say…This guys is going with the Saints, 34-31

Keys to the game:
Colts: Offense must protect Mannings knees or he’ll have happy feet=not good, utilize the Running backs on 3rd down to keep Saints off balance, score atleast 3 touchdowns in the 1st Half Defense must keep Reggie Bush quiet because if he gets going he’ll keep the Colts D off balance.

Saints: Offense must widen the pocket for Brees because he needs room to stay mistake free, Reggie Bush must have 10 touches and 100yds(not including returns), Meachem and Henderson must be involved Defense must keep the Colts under 28 in the game

What do you think???

  1. Good call on this one - I had predicted the same thing (maybe not down to the final score) but I totally agreed with the points you made, however didn't want to jinx anyone (superstitious I am). Now that 'the fat lady has sung' it's safe to say you were pretty much on point with your prediction!!!
