    Today is the Day! Peyton & Co. takes on Drew Brees and his arsesnal of receivers. Forget the defenses. In the past it has always been said that "defenses win Championships." Today may be the exception. The two most prolific offenses of the 2009-2010 season take the field at SunLife Stadium in Miami, Fla.

    NFL Fans will have a game of excitement, big plays, big hits and may see Super Bowl game records shattered.

      High scoring is the assumption, but I would not be shocked to see the Colts' D lock down Brees and Co.  The Saints didn't look very good against the Vikes, and I'm not going to assume they'll do even as well against the Colts.

    I have been watching the NFL Network all morning and Joey Porter made the statement that for the Saints to be able to win, they would have to run the ball successfully and they could on the Colts D.

    I can see his point. Keep Manning off the field #1. And Manning can score quickly as well as Brees. I still think there will be a Huge defensive play somewhere in the game that turns the tide for the winning team. Maybe a sack and a fumble return for a TD or a Int return for a TD.

    God Forbid anyone says anything bad about the almighty Colts, right Ron???...BUT, I'm not sure the Colts D is all that great. Look at what the Jets did to them in the 1st half just two weeks ago...the freakin Jets! And if Freeney sits this one out, that will hurt Indy.

    I say Brees n crew put up some numbers!

      Two trick plays (plays that generally don't work) produced touchdowns, and then the Jets were shut down the rest of the way.  The Colts D is giving up 10 points per game in the playoffs.  I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but if it does I'll be the only one not totally shocked.

    I am excited! I love offensive 'battle' games. It's lame when the game has low scores and defense is simply defending with the offensive just standing there!!!

    We can't forget the role Reggie Bush will have though... Hope he can pull them through the win smile

      The offenses just standing around isn't exactly my definition of good defense, but I love a team with a strong defense taking it to people.

    Reggie Bush could be the "X-Factor" for the Saints. He must have a huge game.

      I know! When he just plays, he's okay. But there are some days, he's amazing. He needs a good day today!!

    hmm, I think it will be a high scoring game,

    saints can run and will try to control the ball.

    saints defense will have to intercept and score.

    time for an NFC win.

    it's the superbowl, anything can happen! 

    go saints.

    Here goes...almost kick-off...and your right...it is a battle of the offenses. We are going to see some high scoring-record breaking Super Bowl Football. It is going to be a great Match.

    Go Saints! (You're up against a great team in the Colts...It is going to be a Football "Shoot-Out" big_smile!)
