BTW Reggie Wayne had a poor game, he bobbled one catch and dropped one in the endzone.

The Saints outplayed the Colts in the second half. Regarding the interception, it was tight coverage, but not a throw Manning can't make, and Reggie Wayne didn't complete the route.

I lost a great deal of respect for Tony Dungy after the way he talked up the Colts and Manning - which I can certainly understand to a point. However, he really should've remained his old circumspective self.

The game took a serious turn when #85 dropped a critical 3rd down pass which might have lead to a punt or a missed field goal or something. Then that dropped pass to Wayne in the endzone was another.

It was a tight game till the end. There is no way you could pin the loss on #18. And as others in here said, the Saints just won. The pick-six is just what happens when you're down late in the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning was a class-act in the loss. I'm not a Colt fan either. But that was a pretty good game.

Some of the plays that impressed me was when the Colts stopped the Saints on 4th and goal, their defense came in there and forced the 3 and out and they came back and got the fg. Then the onside kick. The Saints took risks, they were aggressive, and they, for the most part, kept #18 off the field as much as they could and that's how you beat the Colts.

I reall thought the saints did what the Colts have done in the fourth qaurter;take control of the game;especailly the defense. I saw some dropped passes by both teams but that happens. On offense Brees was on the spot with his passes.Quarterback wise it doesn't get much better than watching brees and manning for accuacy and tight throws.From the middle of the second quarter to the end the saints offense and defnse just out played the colts.

my comment is on the title. Peyton Manning singlehandedly... LITERALLLY!!!! Have you seen the stats. He threw for 333 yards. What more could you ask from the guy. Some players are lucky to throw a hundred yards in game. Yeah a TD pass would've been nice. But come Clark and Wayne couldn't be his only receivers

Better team won yesterday, PERIOD! The same people who want to pin that loss on just Manning are the same people who are serious about podunk Sarah Palin.

Give credit where credit is due to Sean Payton and his coaching staff at half time. They kept Peyton AND the rest of the Colts off balance, witness the on side kick to start the third quarter. That was the key to the game. Their defensive coaches came in with different looks that confused the Colts. Remember, the score early was Colts 10, Saints 0. Starting the second quarter, the Saints scored 31 points, and the Colts 7 points. And Drew Breeze had a tremendous day after a somewhat slow start.

Manning came in with 333 yards. But the Saints were up to the challenge, they knew they were the sentimental favorites going in this game but also knew the smart money was on Indianapolis.

The New Orleans coaching staff deserves props as well as the players. They out coached the Colts staff and I have a lot of respect for the Colts staff, particularly offensive coordinator Tom Moore.

Very well stated Double H. My question is this, at the point in the game where Manning drove them down the field rather quickly and gets to the 30, if he throws an TD vs the pick 6 do you not think that hits the Saints confidence? Hindsights 20/20 but you gotta belive that game is much more managable tied 24-24 than down by 14 do you not? I dont understand how anyone can say that wasnt a huge turning point in the game.

I really don't think that's accurate, and I was rooting for the Colts to win TXboomerang. The Colts controlled the 1st Quarter, and that was about it. NO controlled the last three quarters, even though the stats favored the Colts.
