Who I like, Super Bowl version

Let me first say that this promises to be an exciting Super Bowl if you like to see teams go up and down the field.

The Saints and Colts can both move the ball in chunks. But while much of the focus on this game has been on the offenses, it will be the team that makes a big defensive play that wins it.

Indianapolis is a five-point favorite and that is mainly because of one factor, Peyton Manning.

A win in this game would solidify Manning's place among the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.

But New Orleans' Drew Brees isn't bad in his own right.

The fact that Dwight Freeney figures to be limited and Reggie Wayne suffered a knee injury in practice Friday scares me a little bit, but I think the Colts win a tight one.

Take Indianapolis to win, but New Orleans to cover in a 34-31 Colts victory.

Word to the novices: Never bet on a team you don't think will win.

Colts win by 6

I think the Saints offense is just a little bit better than the Colts and more importantly, I think their advantage on D is even higher. They still aren't very good on D but I still think they are the better of the two defenses. They also had to play a very good offensive team in Minnesota while the Colts played offensive weaklings.

Aw, who knows... First team to 50 wins! (I still think it's the Saints)

Who are the Steelers playing in the Super Bowl?

Not a fan of either team, but happy to see Indy lose because they cheated by manipulating their games at the end of the season to benefit themselves in the AFC playoffs.
