If you want to prove yourself by providing video, I would be happy to watch it.

Those officials called a good game and if those were cheap shots, they would have called some of them.
Apparently you were watching a different game.

If you think the Colts are that much better than the Saints, you are out of your mind. This is probably the best Super Bowl matchup we have seen in years. I expect it to be tightly contested with the Colts pulling away in the fourth quarter for the win.

Oh my yes, this.

The most annoying media matchup would have been Jets vs Minny. Not only all the Favre talk, but having to listen to Rex Ryan beat his chest about how great he is for two weeks would have been rough. This is the most tolerable matchup imo.

We'll see.

The Aints don't have a defensive line that can sack a QB - and if the refs are actually watching, they'll throw the flag with those wussy lineman drill Manning 3 seconds after he passes the ball.

The Aints don't have a good pass defense. Manning is going to destroy them.


So even if - and that's a big if - the Aints can muster up 28 points, the Colts will double it.


It won't be much of a Super Bowl. Everything but the wiping will be done by half-time.

I don't think the Saints can count on Manning throwing a stupid interception while the Colts are in field goal range to win the game.

Manning is the NFL MVP and won't make a mistake that stupid.

I totally disagree with all of that and totally agree with all that Omaha said. In fact, I gave him 5 rep points for his prior post. Well done, Omaha.

Bret Favre was picked up and got pile-drived into the turf. Penalty. Then he was hit high/low just like Carson Palmer and Brady and got no penalty called. That cheap shot he took on the 2nd drive should have clued him in on what he'd be facing all day long. They could have thrown more penalties and the Saints would have kept coming after Favre. They tried to bust his leg. That's pretty sick.

Let's just see if that garbage works with Peyton Manning and crew. I'll bet Cut-That-Meat scortches the Aint's pass-rush with a 75% completion rate.

Go Colts.

Oh, and what about the refs?

So with all the cheap shots and at least 3 or 4 bad calls by the officials down the stretch, it just ruined an otherwise exciting game that could have gone either way to the end anyway... despite all the Vikings miscues.

That post would be accurate if the Vikings coaching staff didnt cause a 5 yard penalty to pull them out of range.

Nice game, refs. Check out the non-holding penalty call at :34 where the Viking pass rusher got tackled to the ground and still almost sacked Brees as he threw the ball away... er-got it pass interfered.

Look, I'll go on record to say that I wouldn't mind if the Saints won the Super Bowl. In fact, they're who I want to win.

But anytime I hear the whole, "we're the underdogs", or, "this is the best team in history" and "New Orleans are the new America's Team", I'll be quick to shut that down.

It's great that the Saints got to their first big game, but let's not get carried away folks. Also, the Colts are in this game too..... Let's not forget that.

when those in the living room think there is a problem, then it will get better. for the rest of us, its just
take the bypass around NO and houston.
