Super Bowl Prediction

Well, it’s Super Sunday. Sadly, our Giants won’t be in it. But, I still enjoy the Super Bowl. I’ll be surrounded by great food, great company. To me, that’s all you can ask for.

As for the game, here are my thoughts. This is a pretty evenly matched game. Both great offenses. Pretty good defenses. However, the injury to Dwight Freeney is a huge blow to the Colts defense. If he does play, he will have a hard time getting to Drew Brees. No pressure on Brees means he’ll have time to pick apart the defense. For the Saints, they’ll have to blitz Manning like there’s no tomorrow. Make him as uncomfortable as possible, and hope the pressure affects his passes. On offense, both teams will have to keep doing what they have been doing, although, on the Saints side, I would like to see Reggie Bush play like he did against Arizona. I think, however, that the Saints won’t be able to get a consistent pass rush on Manning, which gives Indy the slight edge.

There’s the emotional factor, which gives the edge to New Orleans. They are playing for a city, not just for themselves. Is that enough to help them stop Manning? I don’t think so.

Saints are a great team, and I’ll be rooting for them. But, they just don’t have an answer for Manning. He is too good. He’s going to make that extra play to win the game.

FINAL SCORE: Colts 24, Saints 21
