Do you guys think either of these teams will run the table? Or maybe both.
i don't think the colts will as it sounded like on espn, they'd rather rest players, so i doubt they'll finish the season 16-0. they might win the super bowl this year, but they won't be undefeated.
i think the saints have probably the best chance at it, as they seem like a team of destiny this year. as everything keeps going there way, even when they're down, they find a way to win. in fact, it seems like they want to do it for the fans too, unlike the selfish patriots that ran up the score on teams to prove they were superior to everyone. no, new orleans seems to want to rewrite the losing history of that franchise this year, which is why i think they have the best shot.
Totally agree...with that! I think the saints do want to re-write their history...More power to them...they are going to be hard to stop (period)...Then...hard to stop from going undefeated!
thanks, i hope they do it too. although, im not a saints fan, i would love to see them run the table. personally, i would like to see them and indie both go undefeated and play each other in the super bowl, but i know that won't happen since it sounds like the colts would rather rest they're players for the remainder of the season.
Personally, I think neither team will end un-defeated since once the home field advantage through the playoffs are clinched, the teams will try to rest players. It won't be like pre-season games, but you can bet a player here and a player there will be rested.
Manning or Brees may not even play the last game of the regular season. At least, I would consider putting in the back-up if I were the coach.
If I had to pick which team could go undefeated, I would say the Colts could do it.
The Saints play Dallas, Tampa Bay at home amd Carolina in Charlotte. The Colts play Jacksonville and Buffalo away and the New York Jets at home. The Saints have been stumbling of late, perhaps under the weight of going undefeated. Peyton Manning has been here before and their schedule is fairly light (even if Jacksonville and the Jets still have a chance to make the play-offs). It seems to me that both will lose once before the season ends. New Orleans will probably lose the last game against the Panthers (with everyone on the bench) and Indianapolis will fall in Jacksonville this week. Jacksonville seems to bounce back and they have only lost once at home in the last six games.
I always believe in "due" when it comes to teams that go undefeated or winless to start the season. This league is so even and competitive that its almost impossible to do one or the other. Certainly the Pats and Lions proved otherwise (kind of... go Giants!!) its almost a lock that teams will win at least one and lose at least one.
I think the strength of remaining schedule is similar. It's pretty incredible when one team gets close to running the table, but having two teams...can't imagine it:)
It seems possible especially for the saints as they grain out close games
I think both are going to be undefeated until the saints meet with the colts in Feburary. The colts are going to come out witht he victory beause they have won the under pressure games. the saints have been running up scores not giving the players a chance to feel under pressure. The colts have it in the bag, in my opinion.
Well, I guess I was wrong about the Colts against Jacksonville. Close but no cigar as they say as Peyton Manning led his team to a come from behind win in the fourth quarter.
We already know that New Orleans is planning on going for 16-0, and now Indy has shown that they want to play their guys to stay in rhythm. If both teams keep playing their guys, I see both actually getting to 16-0. As NFL fans, we should enjoy this, we're getting spoiled with these scenarios so far (unless you're a fan of a team in their respective divisions lol)
Cowboys looked pretty good in the highlights, although the saints almost pulled it out.

WHO WINS IT GUYS?
by Stevennix2001 10 years ago
All I can say is that if the reports on ESPN are true, then it does confirm my beliefs that the Broncos have NEVER believed that Tim Tebow was their "guy" for the future. And having a guy like Peyton Manning, does seem like a logical step to distance themselves from Tebow mania...

Right now Peyton Manning is a trending Twitter topic - Unfortunate but it is now official: Colts QB Peyton Manning will be on the sidelines in Week 1 versus the Texans.The last time someone other than Peyton Manning started at quarterback for the Colts was Jim Harbaugh on December 21, 1997.Sorry...
